First Professional Bluetooth Audio Networked Solutions


Not to be confused with consumer Bluetooth interfaces, the Attero Tech unBT2A and unD6IO-BT are the first Bluetooth-enabled audio devices designed specifically for use with commercially installed AV systems.

Attero Tech also released its new unDNEMO-BT, the world's first Bluetooth-enabled, Dante network audio monitor.

Both Attero Tech Bluetooth audio interfaces employ a simple, consistent, one-button pairing and connect process that avoids the frustration when pairing consumer Bluetooth products. The pairing button is defeatable for restricted-use applications with third-party control systems, if they want to remotely manage the Bluetooth interface and pairing process. A front panel LED indicates connection status.

Each unBT2A or unD6IO-BT interface, as well as the unDNEMO-BT, can be assigned a customizable, Bluetooth-friendly name for applications with multiple co-located interfaces to minimize errant connections. The interfaces are compatible with most smartphones, iPads, and Android tablets. Read more...

IHS on the Future of Hot-Swappable Rack PDUs

IHS on the Future of Hot-Swappable Rack PDUs

The customisation of rack PDUs is an increasingly popular request among customers, IHS reports-- and while many rack PDU suppliers don't offer customisation options, other say custom orders make up to 50% of sales.

Customisation ranges from non-standard cord lengths to unique combinations of socket types or number of sockets and even custom chassis colours. Such flexibility depends on the organisation of supplier manufacturing and supply chains, and can be difficult to achieve. As a result, some suppliers offer "modular" rack PDUs, with a standard set of components (such as communications module and modules with various combinations of sockets) mounted to the chassis as per customer requirements.

OpenPower Shows Off at European Summit

The IBM-led OpenPower consortium heads to Europe with a first summit held in the continent-- one revealing collaborations in France, Germany, Spain and Turkey, as well as the launch of Supervessel Europe.

Held in Barcelona, Spain, the inaugural summit hosted the unveiling of OpenPower-based offerings designed to improve the performance of workloads including AI, deep learning, analytics and high-performance computing (HPC). It also detailed efforts to ensure IBM hardware is not the only alternative to Intel in the datacentre. These include the CAPI SNAP Framework (a co-development designed to make the implementation of FPGA acceleration technology easier, now available in beta) and a demo of OpenPower-ready FPGA accelerator boards by UK-based Alpha Data.

"Commodity platforms are proving ineffective when it comes to ingesting and making sense of the 2.5 billion GBs of data being created daily," OpenPower Foundation president Calista Redmond says. "With today's announcements by our European members, the OpenPower Foundation expands its reach, bringing open-source, high-performing, flexible and scalable solutions to organizations worldwide."
