Complete Line Of JBL Professional Control Series In-Ceiling Loudspeakers Now UL Listed

3 02 2008


NORTHRIDGE, CALIFORNIA, February 1, 2008 — JBL Professional’s Control 200 Series of medium-format, in-ceiling loudspeakers and accessories are now UL listed under UL1480 and UL2043. The newly listed models include the Control 226C/T, the Control 227C and the Control 227CT. With the addition of UL on the Control 200 Series, all JBL Professional in-ceiling loudspeakers are now UL listed.

“It has been a goal of JBL Professional to achieve UL listing for our entire line of in-ceiling loudspeakers, which we have now accomplished,” said Rick Kamlet, Director of Marketing, Commercial Sound, JBL Professional. “Systems integrators now have the option to utilize any model from the JBL Professional ceiling speaker lineup with confidence for jobs that require high-performance, in-ceiling loudspeakers that meet UL requirements.”
Powerful systems featuring premium components, Control 200 Series loudspeakers are designed for applications where superior musical impact, voice clarity and high sound levels are required. Their extremely wide 120-degree coverage pattern allows fewer speakers to cover a larger area, reducing overall system cost without sacrificing sound quality. Whether for foreground music or paging requirements, Control 200 loudspeakers are easy to design into a wide variety of applications and are available in both 70-volt and low impedance models.

JBL’s complete lineup of UL listed in-ceiling loudspeakers includes three models of Control Micro speakers, six models of the Control 24/26/19 series, and seven models within the Control 300 Series. With Control 200 Series now also having attained UL listing, every JBL Professional in-ceiling loudspeaker model is now UL listed.

Mitsubishi’s XL1550U and XL2550U projectors: right at home outside of homes

2 02 2008

We’ll be straight with you — Mitsubishi’s latest duo isn’t exactly cut out for in-home use, but that’s not to say it wouldn’t be the source of copious quantities of enjoyment if you snagged one from the supply closet one weekend. Without further ado, we present the XL1550U, which features an XGA (1,024 x 768) resolution, 3,100 ANSI lumens and a lamp life of up to 5,000 hours. Moving on, we’ve got the XL2550U, which touts the same resolution but offers up 4,000 ANSI lumens, the firm’s new BrightEra LCD panels and a lamp good for around 4,000 hours of use. Furthermore, both units promise side-loading lamps, built-in Ethernet ports for LAN asset management and an RS-232 port for third-party integration. Both of these beamers will be on the market before this month draws to a close for $3,995 and $4,495, respectively.

Sony intros the makeup-inducing PCS-XG80 1080i video conferencing system

2 02 2008

The kind, loving folks over at Sony claim that they’re about to explode the video conferencing market wide open — HD style — and we’ve got front row seats to the festivities. According to the electronics-maker, the PCS-XG80 is the industry’s first 1080i, HD conferencing solution, and will provide dual streaming, 30 FPS performance over IP or ISDN connections. The system is backwards-compatible with its older SD setups, and we assume it plays nice with the behemoth’s earlier HD effort, the PCS-HG90 — though you might want to double check on that before dropping the $8,999 that the company is asking for the system.
