beyerdynamic extends Quinta family12 February 2015
The Quinta product family, beyerdynamic’s fifth generation of wireless conference technology, continues to grow. Described by the company as a future-proof system, it is said to use the latest technology, such as intelligent, reliable frequency selection, an AVB interface and control via smartphone or tablet PC.
In addition to the gooseneck and Revoluto microphone units that are already available, further components are being introduced: Quinta gooseneck microphone units with voting function and the Quinta handheld transmitter.
Three different voting options are available with the new Quinta system: parliamentary, multiple choice and public opinion. The software allows results to be displayed in many different ways. Additionally, there is an archive function, as well as the possibility to export the results.
The Quinta handheld transmitter can be integrated into the conference system as a delegate microphone unit, offering the same functionality. The two-colour, back-lit microphone button is made of what beyerdynamic says is noticeably tactile silicone and features Braille lettering. For use with standard NiMH batteries, a charging dock with a smart charging concept is also being made available as an accessory. To meet different requirements, interchangeable heads with different capsules are available. The handheld transmitter is optimally suited, according to the company, for use in panel discussions, for whispered interpreting, or as an audience microphone, where users benefit from its flexibility.
