Crestron boosts its audio solutions portfolio with new “best in class” speakers and amplifiers3 October 2017
Additions include a new range of Vector performance loudspeakers suitable for auditoriums and lecture theatres
Crestron has expanded its enterprise level audio solutions in EMEA with the release of two new modular amplifiers and a new line of Vector performance loudspeakers.
The amps – AMP-225 (two channels @ 25W each 8 ohm) and AMP-150-100 (one channel @ 50W 100V), are designed to provide – what the AV firm calls, convenient professional performance, EnergyStar certification (saving the planet and money), built-in fault protection, and modular construction. Crestron said multiple units can be grouped together in a single rack space due to the slide-rail design and compact quarter-rack size.
The new amps can also be combined with Crestron half-rack amps, the AMP-1200 and AMP-2100, for a 1RU solution, or surface-mounted under a table.
The new line of medium-throw Vector performance loudspeakers are engineered for use in large commercial spaces, such as auditoriums, lecture halls, corporate town halls, and divisible rooms. Vector loudspeakers are designed to work with Avia DSPs, the Avia Audio Tool, and the new Crestron high-powered amplifiers.
Vector loudspeakers leverage the signal processing within Avia DSPs to greatly reduce harsh-sounding resonances and sound coloration caused by horn reflections while retaining nuances of the original signal. The result is a natural sounding room system with strong pattern control, higher gain before feedback, and improved intelligibility.
“Crestron has everything you need to deliver best-in-class audio performance in any space throughout an enterprise,” said Dennis Fink, technology manager, professional audio at Crestron. “From DSPs and amplifiers, to architectural speakers and high-performance loudspeakers, Crestron gives you robust, easy to scale solutions for a wide range of rooms.”
