AtlasIED just launched the new IED570C-H touch screen mic station. Officially debuting at InfoComm 2019 in Orlando, the IED570 Digital Communication Station allows the global airport community to update the company’s legacy button mic station to an HD 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.
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.
AtlasIED is here. The company will be in booth #5653 at InfoComm 2019 next month.
