AmpliVox Sound Systems announced a major expansion of its product line for 2014, with innovative additions to its collection of top-quality sound equipment and presentation furniture. Many of the "14 for 2014" collection of products are designed to integrate multimedia accessories and high tech audio with attractive lecterns and audio systems, to make presentation delivery simple, seamless, and effective. Others enhance safety and crowd control with versatile multi-function designs.
Multimedia integration has become a crucial element of presentations in all kinds of settings, thanks to the boom in device and app development. AmpliVox has responded with a line of multimedia presentation furniture that provides easy set-up, use, and storage of all types of devices, including tablets, laptops, smartphones, document cameras and projectors. Eleven different lectern styles make up the multimedia line, each with a wide selection of finishes and optional accessories to create a customized finished product. From the workhorse efficiency of the compact Multimedia Center Workstation to the elegant statement of the solid wood Ambassador Lectern, AmpliVox offers a multimedia option to fit any setting, purpose, and budget.
Complementing the presentation furniture line, AmpliVox has developed an innovative two-piece configuration for its popular Line Array Duo-Tandem Soundbar PA System. This new option allow for a fully integrated rack-mount sound system within a multimedia lectern, with the soundbar speaker projecting toward the audience and the amplifier controls facing the presenter from the back of the lectern. Thanks to this unique AmpliVox design, the user enjoys the convenience of complete audio control right at his or her fingertips.
Keeping pace with the use of Bluetooth technology in handheld devices, AmpliVox has added a Bluetooth receiver to its Titan Wireless PA system and made it available as an option on several other PA systems. The Bluetooth receiver enhances the user's ability to include music and other audio before, during, and after a speech, wirelessly streaming content and controlling volume directly form the presenter's device within a range of up to 30 feet from the receiver. The same Titan PA also projects sound from a 16-channel wireless microphone, a built-in CD/MP3 player, or a USB or SD card input.
AmpliVox also continues its leadership as a developer of emergency sound equipment for police, first responders, and others who have responsibility for crowd control and communication. The new Safety Wand Megaphone system combines a highly visible LED-illuminated traffic baton with a powerful 20-watt megaphone. The unit includes a corded detachable microphone with volume control, an alarm whistle, and a rechargeable battery for maximum utility in any traffic or emergency management situation.
"AmpliVox's designers have delivered a collection of outstanding products for 2014 that support all the developing technologies used in presentations," said Don Roth, AmpliVox CEO. "We are always looking for innovative ways to make our lecterns and sound equipment more versatile and adaptable, while preserving the style and quality tht make our products an excellent investment."
