AKG Updates C 747

AKG's new C 747 V11 condenser “pencil microphone” features an enhanced hypercardioid polar pattern offering improved off-axis rejection for ambient noise and feedback control in difficult environments, along with a frequency response tailored for improved spoken-word presence. Also new is a switchable low-frequency roll-off filter and integrated RFI shielding to help screen interference from mobile phones and wireless mics.

MediaMatrix nControl

Designed to expand the capabilities of the MediaMatrix NION system, the nControl auxiliary hardware/software package provides additional control processing with increased Python scripting capabilities and lets users monitor the operation and status of all devices on a network via SNMP. Devices with serial ports connect to nControl either directly or to a supported network serial server for control and management. The nControl can act as a media server, including audio recording and playback over CobraNet. GPIO expansion enables the use of TTL logic, switches, LEDs and other custom circuitry for additional control-driven functions.

Celestion CDX1-1720 HF Drive

The CDX1-1720 is a 1-inch exit, neodymium magnet, titanium-dome compression driver with a “next-generation” phase plug developed at Celestion's UK headquarters for lower distortion and higher max SPLs. A deep-drawn, 1.75-inch diameter titanium diaphragm increases stiffness to reduce dome breakup within the critical 2kHz to 10kHz listening band. Specifications for the 8-ohm driver include 50-watt RMS power handling, 800 to 20k Hz frequency response and 107dB (1w/1m) sensitivity.
