Just Add Power today introduced its new 2GΩ/3G ST1 Sound Transceiver. An audio-only component that functions as either an input or output, the ST1 allows integrators to add a stereo audio source to any Just Add Power system, or to extract stereo audio from an existing transmitter.
With the ST1, integrators can build a stereo audio distribution matrix with unlimited inputs and outputs that runs over network wiring. As an audio input, the ST1 feeds stereo audio into a Just Add Power system. Any audio source with an analog audio out — a TV, Sonos amp, CD player, microphone and more — can be connected and played on any receiver. As an audio output, the transceiver is capable of playing any stereo audio content from any Just Add Power device, while providing variable audio control. This allows for unique functionality, such as sending analog audio from a display to the main rack without having to run an extra network cable.
By combining the transceiver with Just Add Power transmitters and receivers in the same installation, installers now have the ability to mix audio and video in new ways. For example, they can provide their clients with the ability to watch sporting events while listening to radio commentary, give a presentation by mixing PC video with microphone audio, or even add an audio return channel.
