Fulfilling the needs of meeting rooms, conference halls, churches and other presentation applications, the TASCAM AV-452 is an all-new mixer designed for the contracting and installation market. The AV-452 incorporates a microphone mixer, audio/video receiver, infrared controller and digital amplifier into one affordable, easy-to use component. With a universal learning remote and IR blaster function, it's designed to control a sophisticated A/V system as one integrated unit.
The AV-452 was designed primarily to assist in switching audio & video sources and to allow presenter(s) to be heard. Four mic channels offer enough inputs even with multiple presenters and audience interaction. The A/V channel acts as an AV receiver, switching between two audio decks and three A/V sources. 3-band EQs are provided on each of these five channels. Presenters can use the built-in 100W/ch digital power amp to feed speakers directly, or feed the line-level outputs to powered speakers or other amplifiers.
The AV-452 ships with the RC-452 universal learning remote. This remote controls the AV-452 functions, and learns the IR controls for the A/V decks and the projector. The AV-452 main unit can also learn IR commands to be transmitted to a projector, allowing the AV-452 and projector to operate as one unit. Relay control and thorough RS-232/422/485 control are also available.
Permanent installers will also appreciate features that integrate with common building communication systems. For instance, a constant voltage input with noise gate allows paging systems to be integrated into the same speaker system. Also, an EMG break can mute local audio when an emergency alarm system is activated.
With its audio mixing, video routing, device control, digital amplifier and other installation friendly features, the AV-452 is the ideal AV centerpiece for presentation professionals.
