AtlasIED Intros IP-Based Pendant Speaker

AtlasIED’s new IP-based PM8GD pendant speaker debuted at InfoComm 2019 in booth #5653. Designed for open ceiling environments, the IP-PM8GD IPX pendant speaker 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.

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 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 clean installation.
