New Unite Wireless Communication System Features
Debuting at InfoComm 2019, the Unite AP4 expansion component via access point “creates the ultimate solution for fixed installation applications,” according to the company press release.
With AP4, users can rely on Unite in applications where a fixed installation is required. Featuring Dante-functionality and Phoenix inputs and outputs, Unite is compatible with a wide range of applications. Up to eight access points can be synchronized for large systems, enabling up to 32 audio channels are available.
Unite’s talkback function inputs speech from a receiver module into the system and transmission. Users can access all receivers, or just the main device.
Up to three people can speak at once with the main device controlling the active microphones. A request function enables the sequencing of spoken contributions during a discussion, allowing all participants to interact.
The Unite system uses a digital audio processor to optimize speech intelligibility. The frequency response is adjusted so that speech transmission is clear and intelligible. A noise-cancelling function removes background noise and setup is simple.
Unite includes intelligent frequency management to manage up to 32 simultaneously usable groups. The use of the DECT standard means no system authorization is required and no license fees.
The Unite wireless communication system is tap-proof due to AES 256-bit encryption and can be adapted to individual requirements through a large range of components.
From handheld transmitters to neck worn microphones and headsets using a belt pack transmitter, Unite provides a variety of options for speakers.
Headphones, single-ear headphones or an induction neck loop for listeners with hearing aids or cochlear implants ensure every participant gets the same experience. Music or pre-produced contributions can be integrated via analog, USB or Bluetooth connections.
