AtlasIED and MiTek Help Residential Integrators Expand into Commercial Markets by Showcasing Innovative Audio Solutions During CEDIA Expo 2019

AtlasIED and MiTek Help Residential Integrators Expand into Commercial Markets by Showcasing Innovative Audio Solutions During CEDIA Expo 2019

New high-end audio solutions from AtlasIED deliver premium audio quality, superior sound control, and appealing aesthetics, making it easy for residential integrators to break into commercial markets.

PHOENIX, AZ and DENVER, CO (Sept. 6, 2019) – MiTek, parent company of AtlasIED, announced today it will showcase for CEDIA Expo 2019 attendees a selection of AtlasIED’s audio solutions and systems that are well-suited for residential integrators who work in or want to expand into commercial settings. The powerful AtlasIED (and MiTek) lineup on display emphasizes aesthetics, functionality, and exceptional audio fidelity—important attributes in both residential and commercial environments. Installation ease is a hallmark of the entire product portfolio highlighted, offering residential integrators a solid base to reach markets including corporate, retail, healthcare, educational, and hospitality.

“We understand the needs of the commercial integrator, and through our presence at CEDIA Expo, hope to enlighten and inspire residential integrators to explore new avenues of business,” says AtlasIED President and CEO John Ivey. “We offer a full range of products that are uniquely designed to straddle both residential and commercial applications, and help integrators who currently focus on residential projects transition easily and seamlessly into the world of commercial AV installation.”  

Z Series All-in-One Sound Masking Solutions

Sound masking systems may be intended for use in healthcare facilities and clinics and office spaces, but they employ many of the same types of products and technologies utilized by sound systems in homes. Sound masking systems are crucial to the overall acoustics of a commercial environment, just as a residential sound system is able to create the proper acoustics for a home theater setting. 

Helping AV integrators apply their knowledge of audio to the needs of commercial environments is the AtlasIED Z Series. This all-in-one sound masking solution consists of either a four-zone (Z4) or two-zone (Z2) high-definition acoustical system. With integrated pink and white noise generators for sound masking, plus a mic-line input for paging/background music and a Bluetooth receiver for wireless music transmission, the Z Series provides high-quality speech privacy, high-definition background music, and paging functionality. 

The Z Series models are easy to install, with a slim, clean design that is aesthetically pleasing in virtually any application. Models can be mounted in-wall, on-wall, or in a rack. Once installed, all hardware and wiring are centrally located behind the secure front panel, making it convenient and easy to access for post-installation service. The front panel display allows for system programming as well as end-user control. As an accessory, the wireless privacy enhancement button compliments this ease-of-control for users.

EZSYS Packages Bundle Everything Together for Complete Sound Masking and Music and Paging Solutions

Every residential AV integrator knows that the best audio systems require products that are able to be integrated easily together. The same is true of sound masking and music and paging solutions for offices, healthcare facilities, and other commercial environment. To make it easy to sell and install sound masking and business music and paging systems, AltasIED has packaged the necessary parts together into single cartons. Everything an integrator needs—proper amplification, system control, and speakers are included. The only components that need to be added are audio sources and cables. As a bonus, the box illustrates how to connect everything, including cable and tool requirements. 

Specific packages include:

The EZSYS-PRIVACY-A is a complete sound masking solution designed to reduce ambient speech and thereby improve speech privacy. Maintaining privacy of speech is particularly beneficial to open-plan offices, doctors’ examination rooms, and other environments where confidentiality is crucial. The package includes an amplified sound masking generator and industry-best sound masking speakers. 

The EZSYS-BGM-S includes everything an integrator needs to outfit a business with a complete music and paging system. Components in the package include amplification, system control, and speakers, plus thorough installation instructions. This system is designed to be surface mounted. 

The EZSYS-BGM-CPHD is a business music and paging system in a box and features a patented self-diagnostic technology called “Push Here Diagnostics.” It includes the same components of the surface-mounted EZSYS BGM system, but it meant to be installed within ceiling tiles

The EZSYS-BGM-C business and music paging system is intended for ceiling tile applications and includes everything found in the EZSYS-BGM-CPHD except for the Push Here Diagnostics feature. 

Strategically Hidden Speaker (SHS) Combines Subtle Form and Optimal Function

Concealing speakers to preserve the aesthetics of a home is a standard practice of AV integrators. It’s a method that’s also commonplace in retail and hospitality venues, as well as corporate boardrooms, museums, and architecturally interesting environments. 

The Strategically Hidden Speaker from AtlasIED is a step forward in loudspeaker design for residential and commercial clients, as it virtually disappears into the ceiling. 

The concealed design of the SHS is achieved by Adaptive Dispersion Lens Technology, a new, patented waveguide form. Only a 3-inch diameter lens and a micro trim ring are visible on the ceiling. The dispersion lens can be easily painted allowing the SHS to blend in without compromising the architectural aesthetic of the room. Easy to specify and install, the SHS Series speakers include three dispersive lens configurations for enhanced flexibility and functionality in any room, regardless of ceiling height. 

For design sensitive environments, AtlasIED’s DesignLab™ custom print process uses an incredibly accurate UV-printer to replicate colors, textures, and patterns, enabling the SHS to blend into any environment. Simply upload an image, provide a numeric color specification, or send a 6-inch sample of the ceiling tile to be matched, and the experts at AtlasIED will do the rest, delivering perfectly matched SHS lenses for any project.  

“Years in development, the SHS Series delivers highly intelligible audio with optimal bass response and ultra-wide, 180-degree dispersion,” explains Ivey. “Offering full coverage in any environment, the SHS is a first of its kind speaker that puts the needs of the architectural and design community first, while delivering the audio quality today’s integrators demand for their clients.”

Communications systems are important elements in homes and businesses.AltasIED offers a way to transition into K-12 educational and healthcare markets, as well as other facilities requiring quick and efficient notification through audio and visual messaging, with its third-generation IPX Series IP endpoints. 

The IPX Series is an excellent solution for expanding VoIP or SIP communications systems by integrating endpoints to offer greater coverage than traditional handset-based systems. The IPX series includes speakers and visual displays, all with the foundational features found in previous models that have been serving the market for almost 20 years, now with modern styling and an upgraded high-resolution display.

Through a Unified Communications (UC) environment or the AtlasIED GLOBALCOM.IP ecosystem, the IPX Series delivers smart automation, including pre-programmed notifications for common functions like bells and critical alerts. A comprehensive library of pre-recorded messages is available through GLOBALCOM.IP or .EDU, which can be broadcast across the facility or directed to specific zones. 

The IPX Series uses existing IT infrastructure for convenience and cost-savings and offers Auto Provisioning once it is on the network. “Talk To Me” Interoperability ensures the IPX units can work within any VoIP system, as they are open-platform engineered to communicate and be controlled by the top-selling providers of Unified Communications software platforms and standard SIP PBX systems. 

“AtlasIED IPX Series IP-based audio and video communications endpoints live on the existing network and offer unrivaled flexibility,” says Alex Puorro, VP of IP Endpoint Development. “They’re really quite exciting in terms of capability and convenience.”

Available now for projects worldwide, the IP-PM8GD is unlike any other speaker on the market.

 

Enabling an inconspicuous installation in open ceiling environments, the IP-PM8GD IPX pendant endpoint can be used anywhere within a building for consistent sound and audio broadcasting of network-based communications. Hailed as the audiovisual industry’s first IP- enabled pendant endpoint, the IP-PM8GD is engineered for such applications as restaurants, churches, malls, retail stores, fitness centers, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and anywhere else that high or open ceilings require large quantities of speakers for smooth, even coverage.

The IP-PM8GD registers as a communication endpoint directly within InformaCast, Revolution, and GCK Advanced Notification applications, to support audio broadcast while enhancing physical security. Like other endpoints in the AtlasIED IPX line, the IP-PM8GD pendant loudspeaker supports advanced alerting, bell schedules, pre-recorded announcements, all across WAN/LAN Network Architecture. Where third party notification applications are not required, the IP-PM8GD speakers can register as SIP devices directly to a SIP server or VoIP Communications Manager for critical alerts /public address applications.

Easy to install, even in open beam ceilings, the pendant attaches to overhead surfaces via either a 3-meter cable kit or any ¼-inch ceiling fan installation kit for down-pipe installation. Either installation solution is discreetly implemented using AtlasIED’s PM Series top cover design, which includes a cable access plug that is easily removed for down-pipe mounting. The cover also completely conceals the speaker cable terminations and suspension anchor points for a seamless, clean installation every time.

 

The latest endpoint in the IPX Series adds unprecedented flexibility to the line. “As the next evolution of the IP endpoint category, the IPX family of products from AtlasIED delivers modern styling, superior audio quality, and flexibility,” Alex Puorro, AtlasIED Vice President of IP Endpoint Development, says. “Meeting the increasing demand for high-quality sound, audio over IP technology, and aesthetically pleasing solutions in a wide range of commercial applications, our new IP-PM8GD endpoint is easy to specify and simple to install, offering rock-solid functionality in virtually any commercial integration project.”

AtlasIED Launches New IED570C-H GLOBALCOM® Digital Communication Station with High Definition Touch Screen for Pre-programmed Boarding Sequences

AtlasIED Launches New IED570C-H GLOBALCOM® Digital Communication Station with High Definition Touch Screen for Pre-programmed Boarding Sequences

Showing for the first time at InfoComm 2019, the IED570C-H will transform the way airlines deliver boarding calls

Phoenix, AZ – (May 9, 2019) – Revolutionizing flight announcement systems in airports around the world, AtlasIED, a global manufacturer of comprehensive audio solutions for commercial AV and transportation industry environments, launches the new IED570C-H touch screen mic station.

Revealed for the first time at InfoComm Booth #5653 in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, June 12 – 14, 2019, the IED570 Digital Communication Station allows the global airport community to update their legacy button mic station to the newest, intuitive, high definition touch screen.

Fully programmable via the touch screen, the IED570 mic station eliminates the need for airline personnel to use physical buttons to unlock codes to start the boarding sequence. Each sequence can be pre-programmed to begin automatically, and gate personnel can see a preview of the boarding process on the screen.

Some of the world’s largest airlines, including Delta™ Air Lines, Air Canada™, United Airlines™, and American Airlines™ use AtlasIED flight announcement systems to board efficiently and safely. The IED570 gives gate agents control of the pre-programmed sequences at the touch of a finger, along with superior audio intelligibility for enhanced customer service at the gate.

The new IED570 mic station options include a desktop or flush-mount footprint, allowing immediate retrofitting of the existing IED528 series. Simply mount the IED570C-H directly to the 528 backbox. Along with the T112 Series, the new IED570 Digital Communication Station offers Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality with redundant Ethernet ports. A network-based appliance, each IED570 station can obtain an IP address automatically or be assigned a unique IP address, simplifying installation and configuration.

Equipped with an omnidirectional electret condenser microphone cartridge integrated with a mic preamp and an audio line driver, the IED570 offers the option of mounting the mic on the side or top of the unit. The microphone element location, in a teardrop-shaped molded black textured Cyclolac™ housing, provides the mechanism for good acoustical coupling, resulting in a full-bodied, highly intelligible voice signal. The omnidirectional element also eliminates the proximity effect to improve intelligibility and audio quality, eliminating the disruptive sounds that occur when a user attempts to speak too close to the microphone.

Designed to initiate announcements, messages, and pages with the GLOBALCOM® Series Announcement Control Systems, the IED570 also includes an auxiliary line-level audio input to connect to a background music source, as well as a line level audio output, which can be used as an additional audio zone.

“With digital signage, phone charging stations, and enhanced security screening systems, today’s airports feature advanced technology at every turn – except at the boarding gate,” says John Goodrich, Director, Global Installed Systems at AtlasIED. “AtlasIED addresses the shortcomings of traditional, push-button mic stations at the airport gate with the new IED570C-H touch screen. Offering superior sound quality and pre-programmed, automated boarding sequences via a high-definition touch screen, the IED570 promises to simplify the boarding process for gate personnel and change the way flyers hear boarding announcements for the better.”
