beyerdynamic will highlight the Revoluto Microphone Station at AES 2006 (Booth #1102). Made for use with the MCS-D 200 conferencing system, the Revoluto provides superior sound reproduction without the use of a gooseneck microphone.
Utilizing line array technology, the microphone capsules in the Revoluto create an omnidirectional pattern allowing the speaker to move around without affecting the volume or sound quality. Due to its multi-capsule design, the Revoluto provides additional redundancy with no loss of pick-up. In addition, the Revoluto's low-profile design provides a clear view of the speaker.
"With its line array technology, the Revoluto is truly a revolutionary solution for conference room situations," explains Bob Lowig, C&P Business Manager. "No longer does a speaker need to be conscious of the microphone. They can move their heads, sit back, read from notes or even stand and be confident that their message is transmitted clearly and effectively."
The Revoluto station is available in three versions, Basis, Standard and Graphic. The Basis station comes equipped with one microphone button, function buttons for clear and priority as well as a two-way Extended Base loudspeaker system. In addition to featuring a single microphone button and function buttons, the Standard station has an alphanumeric display with menu, language selection and volume control as well as five buttons for voting. The Graphic Station is offered with the same features as the Standard, but with a graphic display for non-Latin characters and ten multi-function buttons for participants to phone each other as well as vote. All stations are equipped with two LEDs, which alert the speaker when he or she is out of range of the microphone.
As with all stations in the MCS-D 200 conferencing system, the Revoluto comes with the NetRateBus network. NetRateBus operates similarly to the Internet, providing transmission of fully digital audio as well as data management via the conferencing system's cable run. The NetRateBus network provides 54 multi-functional audio channels, which can be allocated freely for discussions, interpreting applications, phoning from microphone station to microphone station, and conference calls.
