Revolabs Inc. announced at InfoComm 2013 its next-generation Executive Elite four- and eight-channel wireless microphone systems, the company’s new flagship product and latest addition to its family of unified communications solutions for boardrooms and conference rooms. The system’s features include a new distributed architecture, increased density, enhanced integration with room control systems and cloud-based management capabilities. The solution also includes Revolabs’ secure AES-256 encryption featuring dynamic key updates every 60 seconds, in addition to flexible AVB, analog and USB audio output options.
Using a new distributed architecture, Executive Elite separates the remote antenna receiver unit from the Executive Elite base digital signal processing (DSP) unit. The remote antenna receiver (whether wall or ceiling mounted) and base DSP units connect via a standard Cat6 cable with power over Ethernet (PoE) support. This means the Executive Elite’s remote antenna receiver unit can be placed in the same room as wireless microphones.
The system also introduces Revolabs’ redesigned Executive Elite microphones. For longer talk times, the new microphones — which include omnidirectional, directional, gooseneck (6-inch and 12-inch options), wearable microphones, as well as XLR and mini-XLR adapters — allow for up to 12 hours of continued usage, even in high RF settings with receivers up to 300 feet away, according to Revolabs. The microphones also conserve power when not in use, enabling stand-by times of up to 72 hours with a remaining talk time of at least one hour.
The Executive Elite receiver also uses Revolabs OTA™ technology, which enables proximate remote antenna receivers to synchronize their signal automatically. Depending on the region, this allows the system to utilize up to 60 (Americas) or 120 (rest of world) high-definition channels for its wireless microphones in any given deployment. When switching to high-density mode, the receivers can tap into even more channels, increasing the number of supported microphones even further. By calibrating radio settings, the Revolabs remote antenna receivers can also reach any number of microphones.
Revolabs Executive Elite is also providing new local and remote cloud-based system management. Administrators will be able to obtain real-time information on microphone status, audio and radio signal strength, and overall system performance directly from the unit’s display or via the local Web-based interface by connecting a laptop or tablet through a USB port.
The Revolabs Executive Elite four- and eight-channel wireless microphone systems will be available in Q3 2013. More information is available at http://www.revolabs.com.
