Anchor Audio’s newest arrival to the Anchor AIR product line – the Bigfoot and Beacon AIR – will debut at InfoComm. The company first released AIR wireless companion speakers in their flagship Liberty Platinum product line in June 2016, and throughout the year added the battery-powered wireless connection technology into the MegaVox Pro, Go Getter, and lastly the Bigfoot Line Array and Beacon Line Array. All systems with AIR technology have complete wireless connectivity between units. The Bigfoot and Beacon AIRsystems are not passive companion units, but rather, are main units with either an AIR transmitter or receiver built-in. The units can be used in tandem for larger coverage or separately as stand-alone units.
The Bigfoot and Beacon AIR systems are battery powered, operate six to eight hours or more on a single charge, and can be placed 150 feet or more from one another. A single transmitter can connect to an unlimited number of AIR receivers. AIR wireless technology operates within the 900 MHz frequency, which is one of the few clear frequency bands available and, therefore, limits interference from competing signals. The Beacon is the official wireless PA system of rAVe’s THE GAME, by the way. We’ve used it since it debuted.
The Bigfoot and Beacon portable line arrays are durable and easy to transport with built-in wheels and handles. Delivering 130 and 120 dB of clear sound respectively, these portable sound systems are ideal for both music and voice amplification making them truly versatile. All Anchor Audio sound systems are available with up to two wireless microphone receivers in addition to the AIR wireless companion transmitter.
The Bigfoot and Beacon AIR portable line arrays are shipping now. Here are the details.
