HAL1x Expansion Bus – daisy-chain up to 32 EXP devices, in any combination.
I know, you were sad that you missed my PowerPoint presentation at Rane’s InfoComm Booth in Orlando a few weeks ago because you had to golf. Or was it Disney World, or drinks with your industry pals? Or was it because your boss sent those other co-workers from the Sydney office?
Either way, don’t fret. I recorded the PowerPoint presentation without the convention center background noise. Continue reading →
Consultants at Sparling in Seattle designed a HAL1 system into a Pacific Northwest University lecture hall. Delta AV in Gresham, OR, are doing the installation. Two classrooms can be combined. Each room requires 75 push-to-talk mics for students – one at every other desk. The 150 student mics mute locally, and a variety of teachers’ mics and laptop RAD feeds tackle the instructor audio.
Remember when you could plug in a live audio cable and immediately you’d hear sound? This was before you needed an IP Address, software, a mouse or (gasp!) the correct firmware in all your devices before you could hear music. We do.
HAL’s DR & RAD devices – just like analog. Unlike any digital audio device you know.
The significantly enhanced HAL1x Expansion Bus ships in the new EXP1x, EXP3x & EXP5x in April 2013. The new Bus supports daisy-chaining any combination of up to 32 EXPs, allows 512 x 512 audio channels, permits EXPs to be 100 meters (328 feet) apart, and supports unmanaged gigabit media converters (fiber) if EXPs need to be miles apart. This allows spreading HAL system audio and control I/O between distant equipment rooms in conference centers, campuses, classrooms, hotels, malls, arenas, sports centers, water parks, among others.
Don’t you wish your installers could run any and every version of the DSP control software needed, at any job site they encounter, new or old? And do so without uninstalling and reinstalling anything? We did too. This is why Halogen allows running any and every version – one at a time – on the same computer. HAL knows.
To install the newest Halogen software, yet still allow a previous version of Halogen to run on the same computer, follow these instructions:
Greetings from Rane galactic headquarters in Mukilteo, USA (20 miles north of Seattle). It’s pronounced: Muck-Ill-Tee-Oh. Mukilteo is a local Indian word meaning “good camping ground” or “long goose neck” depending.
Welcome to the Rane blog. Here’s we’ll tackle the installation world of Rane.
