New wireless mic from Revolabs supports AES-2569 January 2013
Announced in November was a new addition to Revolabs’ Executive HD product family. The Revolabs Executive HD MaxSecure wireless microphone system and compatible microphones now offer support for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256) as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
With the addition of the Executive HD MaxSecure products, Revolabs said that it supports a standard designed for compliance with the security encryption standards AES FIPS 197 and AES FIPS 140-2, established by the United States government and approved by the US National Security Agency (NSA) for applications requiring advanced privacy protection.
“Revolabs continues to lead the industry by adding AES encryption at the 256-bit level to a solution already featuring unparalleled audio quality, and addressing the ever-expanding market requirements for wireless microphones,” said Tim Root, CTO and vice president of business development at Revolabs. “With support for AES-256, in addition to our GSA product family introduced earlier this year, Revolabs continues to implement the features that our customers in the medical, government, and financial markets are pushing for.”
The rack-mountable Revolabs Executive HD wireless microphone system is designed for demanding environments such as high-end boardrooms and large auditoriums. Each Executive HD unit provides support for up to eight microphones, while multiple units can be linked together to support up to 32 microphones per area.
The Executive HD can be integrated with all control systems via RS-232 or Ethernet, making it, according to the company, a seamless, natural extension of any new or existing environment.
A front-panel LCD display provides simple control and configuration on-location, while management software is available for the convenience of remotely monitoring and controlling the system through its Ethernet connection.
