Overland Park, Kan. – MSE Audio; parent company of SoundTube Entertainment, Soundsphere, dARTS, Phase Technology, Induction Dynamics, SolidDrive and Rockustics; announces a joint sales initiative with Attero Tech to package Axiom Audio Wall Plates and Axon C1 Zone Control Wall Plate with SoundTube Entertainment’s IPD-Hub2 and Remote Volume Control Plate.
The SoundTube Entertainment IPD-Hub2 brings IP-based, PoE technology to the commercial and residential markets offering a unique alternative to traditional audio distribution systems. The IPD-Hub 2 utilizes Dante infrastructure and Attero Tech unIFY software to provide advanced performance monitoring and EQ/DSP control to individual speakers in the system from any computer with a network connection.
By partnering with Attero Tech, SoundTube Entertainment’s IPD-Hub2 and Remote Volume Control Plate create a highly integrated package solution. Paired with SoundTube Entertainment’s passive ceiling speakers, integrators can design cost-effective single- and multi-zone audio experience. Designed for restaurants, retail establishments and educational installations, the IPD-Hub2 features a native Axiom port, allowing installers to add the Attero Tech Axiom wall plates to create local inputs to the Dante network. The IPD-Hub2 setup and control is supported in Attero Tech’s unIFY software to enable a single control application for all SoundTube Entertainment and Attero Tech products in the system.
“SoundTube Entertainment’s partnership with Attero Tech creates a scalable, Dante-enabled system at a competitive price point,” said Michael Sipe, Vice President of U.S. Sales for MSE Audio. “In designing this system with Attero Tech, our goal was to create a functional, simple-to-use experience targeted towards restaurants, retail and education. We look forward to working with Attero Tech’s network of dealers, as well as our own network of SoundTube Entertainment dealers, to provide them with a cost-effective solution fit to their needs.”
