Orbital spotlights HME, Zaxcom at ABTT17 June 2011
The ABTT Theatre Show 2011 afforded an opportunity for Orbital Sound to showcase products from a range of its distributed brands, including Clear-Com and d&b audiotechnik.
Specific products on display included the new two-channel HME DX210 digital intercom (pictured), various intercom system from Clear-Com, and Zaxcom’s TRX900LT digital wireless transmitter. From d&b audiotechnik came the T-Series line arrays and White Range theatre and installation loudspeaker systems, while the Que Audio Performance Series miniature microphones and the CSC Audio Playback & Show Control software.
Chris Headlam, MD of Orbital Sound, commented: “We have our most comprehensive-ever array of leading brands and new products this year, with the Clear-Com range representing a particularly important addition. Among the other products, the new HME DX210 is an impressive system – operating in the 2.4GHz band, it exhibits the legendary capabilities of the DX200, and delivers exceptional sound clarity. Zaxcom’s TRL900LT is a third-generation fully mature design – up there with the best in terms of performance, resilience and quality. With its tube-mode functionality, it provides digital synthesis that can deliver a more analogue sound in controlled stages – you simply flick a switch to make it sound exactly how you want, whilst still retaining the multiple digital advantages, such as improved battery life, RF integrity and sonic clarity.
“Orbital’s other big news is our recent contract with Shure Distribution UK, for some 500 channels of its high performance UHF-R wireless microphones systems. Putting us in a strong position of readiness for Channel 38, the contract includes the UR1M micro bodypack transmitters and, later this year, Shure’s recently-launched Axient range. ABTT continues to make an important contribution to the UK theatre industry, providing us all with a platform for business, networking, and socialising – and the perfect showcase for new products and services.”
The company also showcased its easiHire rental service and provided expert guidance on issues surrounding Noise at Work compliance – a topic on which Orbital offers specialist help through its Noise@Work Risk Assessment Service.
