ProCo Sound, an RHC brand, will feature its latest series of Analog over Category Cabling (AOC) and DMX over Category Cabling (DOC), along with the latest audio streaming service device from RapcoHorizon, the BTIBLOX, at InfoComm 2017 (Booth 5155). Both AOC and DOC product ranges streamline audio setups by reducing signal degradation and setup time when working with longer cable runs. A Bluetooth-compatible device, BTIBLOX is the latest expansion to RapcoHorizon’s line of BLOX self-contained portable devices.
ProCo’s Analog over Category Cabling (AOC) allows users to run between one and four channels of analog audio up to 3,000 feet. It is available in XLR male and female versions with four channels of audio to two-foot fan break outs, as well as 1/4-inch TRS with four channels of audio to two-foot fan break outs. All variations run into an individual Neutrik EtherCON connector. The AOC cables allow for quick setup and longer runs with less signal degradation than conventional analog wire.
The DMX over Category Cabling (DOC) converts up to four DMX lines into a single Neutrik EtherCON connector. Cables are available in two, three and four universe breakout fans. All DOC cables are compatible with the DMX 4U-BI-6 and DMX 4U-BO-6 Break In/Out Boxes, which can be used for in- or out-breaks in DMX two, three or four universes over long-distance CAT6(5e) cable runs and are available with either an eyelet or truss-clamp option.
BTIBLOX (Bluetooth Interface BLOX) is a tool designed for live events and presentations. It quickly and easily pairs with most Bluetooth audio players, including smart phones and computers. It can operate on phantom power or its own internal rechargeable battery.
The BTIBLOX has a line-of-sight range of over 75 feet to stream audio wirelessly. It is built with an XLR-male output that can connect directly to a mixer input and features a translucent back cover that allows the user to view the LED status. It is built to Bluetooth 4.2 specifications and is FCC and RoHS compliant.
