All of the new products are part of the company’s Time Saving Devices line
AtlastIED has added several new audio distribution, processing and control devices to its line of commercial audio products. The new additions include a wall-mount (“W” TSD) family of indoor/outdoor mic/line/Bluetooth mixers and accessories, a two-channel preamp/Dante interface, a mic/line preamp, a distribution amplifier, and 24V power supply. All of the products are part of AtlasIED’s Time Saving Devices (TSD) line, which includes mixers, amplifiers, preamps, and other distribution and control devices. Like other products in the TSD portfolio, the new devices have been engineered and designed to simplify connections, satisfy specific application needs, and enhance installation flexibility and scalability for commercial AV integrators.
The new products also feature compact footprints that enable them to be integrated easily into any space. Plus, with support of Dante, the devices can be added to a digital audio network, providing AV integrators with a simple, affordable way to upgrade their audio systems from analog to digital for applications including corporate, retail, healthcare, educational, and hospitality.
“We are thrilled to expand our base of professional audio products to provide AV integrators with new problem-solving solutions for projects that require compact, cosmetically friendly designs and simple installation,” says AtlasIED President and CEO John Ivey. “We made sure that these new audio devices also support Dante, so that integrators can provide their clients with the most advanced signal processing and distribution network available.”
The new AtlasIED audio processing, mixing, and distribution products include:
Indoor/Outdoor Analog Wall Mount (WTSD-MIX31K) 3×1 Mic/Line Bluetooth Mixer and(WTSD-MIX41K) 4×1 Mic/Line Mixer
The WTSD-MIX31K (pictured) features a balanced microphone/line input and an auxiliary 3.5mm and Bluetooth summed input with a balanced line output. The WTSD-MIX31 utilizes commercial-grade Bluetooth technology featuring ultra-low noise levels, long-range connectivity, no auto-connect and a quick disconnect bump feature. Selection between mic or line level for the XLR input is done via a front panel switch. The high-gain mic inputs incorporate user-enabled phantom power for condenser microphones and a 125Hz low-cut filter to eliminate unwanted low frequency interference. A local mute button mutes output to the bus and a system priority button can mute building-wide BGM systems to isolate the room. An adjustable VOX feature allows for AUX input background audio to be muted when announcing is present.
The WTSD-MIX41K features four balanced microphone/line inputs and a balanced line output. Selection between mic or line level is done via a dip switch on the rear panel. The high-gain mic inputs incorporate user-enabled phantom power for condenser microphones and a 120Hz low- cut filter to eliminate unwanted low-frequency interference. A global mute function can be triggered via local switch. Separate level controls for each input provide control for the audio mix needed.
AtlasIED 4-Input XLR Passive Wall Plate (WTDS-XLR4)
Used in conjunction with the WTSD-MIX41K is an optional two-gang, 4-input XLR passive wall plate (WTDS-XLR4). The WTSD-XLR4 can also be used as a standalone wall plate for any balanced mic/line system that requires a remote input plate. Each XLR has a three-way removable connector (G – +) for terminating standard two-conductor, shielded wire.
Both the WTSD-MIX41K and WTSD-MIX31K wall plates can be converted to DanteDigital Network audio when interfaced with the optional AtlasIED TSD-DAC2i converter. The wall plates fit into most two-gang boxes, and can be used with a WTSD-COVER accessory for installation in outdoor environments.
AtlasIED Audio/Power & Control Interface (WTSD-PWHUB)
The WTDS-PWHUB is designed to be used in conjunction with AtlasIED WTSD wall plate mixers at the head-end when additional headroom control and external device integration is necessary. Features include emergency audio mute function for fire alarm systems and two NO/NC relays that can be configured to turn on or off the head-end amp rack with the auto sleep function. A priority button can be used to temporarily mute background music for paging purposes. The WTDS-PWHUB requires a 24VDC power supply.
AtlasIED 2-Channel Balanced Line Input to Dante Interface (TSD-DAC2i)
The AtlasIED TSD-DAC2i is a PoE 2-channel analog pre-amplifier that converts analog audio signals to Dante digital audio. The TSD-DAC2i can be used for any Analog to Dante digital audio end point, but is ideally suited to be used with the AtlasIED WTSD wall mixer series. Once converted to Dante digital audio, the audio can be transmitted over IP networks and routed in the Dante Controller software. The TSD-DAC2i Dante transmitter I/O module features two analog balanced line inputs with a variable gain to operate from line to mic level.
