InfoComm08 Mackie/TAPCO Show Preview
InfoComm is the largest tradeshow of the professional audiovisual industry, where integrators and professionals from the global AV market come together to witness how the industry is solving communication challenges, improving the education process and finding innovative new ways to inspire audiences.
Mackie and TAPCO are proud to be a part of this excellent event. In fact, They're coming to the show with exciting and powerful new updates to the TT System32:
- Start with a DS3232 on-stage.
- Route the ultra-light Cat-5 cable into a U100 Network Card on a TT24 to be used for monitors.
- Use the TT Control Software (with soon-to-be-released update) to easily split and route every input and send it out from a second monitor U100 Card.
- Use a Cat-5 cable (up to 300 feet!) to send these unaffected signals to the U100 Card on the FOH TT24.
There you have it. A ridiculously simple (and extremely affordable) digital live system that is immensely powerful, portable and completely Mackie.
Updating to TT Software v1.7 also greatly expands the routing options for the TT24 by enabling full I/O routing. Also, pre/post DSP inserts on every channel provide access points for the LP48 Card.
Mackie’s LP48 Loudspeaker Processing Card is a powerful expansion option for the TT24 Digital Live Console, adding world-class speaker and EQ processing to the TT24’s already generous DSP capabilities. Designed by Dolby Laboratories, creators of the acclaimed Dolby® Lake® Processor, the LP48 incorporates Dolby’s renowned Ideal Graphic EQ™ and Mesa Parametric EQ™.
User configurable processing allows for three modes including: EQ mode with 10 insertable EQ modules, Split mode with 5 EQ modules and 2x4 loudspeaker processing, and a full-on 4x8 Loudspeaker Processing Mode. The Dolby Lake Controller interface is controlled using the TT Control Software, allowing unparalleled at-a-glance control over anything hitting your loudspeakers.
The LP48 is set to be available late July.
*The LP48 Card is sold separately from the TT System32.
