ISE 2015: TC Group reveals product line-up

TC Group’s Tannoy, Lab.gruppen and Lake brands will bring a plethora of install and performance audio products to ISE next week.

These include two new additions to Tannoy’s digital beam steering column array range. The QFlex Life Safety (LS) models promise a cost effective solution for critical, life safety applications, balancing power consumption needs with high performance and intelligibility, featuring optimised driver placement and improved current draw. The QFlex LS will also herald an integrated showing of Tannoy’s life safety and EN54 certified products, such as the VLS passive columns and the DVS wall mounted series.

The Tannoy VX 8M, a full range Dual Concentric loudspeaker for small-to-medium scale performance sound reinforcement, will get its first public showing. With controlled 90° dispersion, the VX 8M has a peak output of 119dB and a recommended amplifier power of 260W. The new cabinet design offers 40 and 60° angles, meaning it can also be used as a dedicated floor monitor.

Another new addition will be the THL-1, a large-format tunnel horn loudspeaker for Emergency Voice Alarm/Communication (EVAC) systems. In an application notorious for high ambient noise levels and excessive reverberation, the THL-1 is designed to transmit intelligible voice announcements from a minimum number of loudspeaker locations.

Making its European debut will be Tannoy’s CMS 3.0, the new range of ceiling devices featuring a reinvention of Tannoy’s Dual Concentric driver design. CMS 3.0 will be complemented by Lab.gruppen’s LUCIA amplifier range, built to provide a matched 16-ohm solution, enabling eight CMS models to be driven by each of the two channels.

Lab.gruppen’s D Series platform will also be new to ISE this year. The install amplifier range, based on the PLM 20000Q, provides complete control and monitoring of the whole platform ecosystem, including networking, audio I/O, signal processing, amplifiers, power supply and connected mains supply, while both Lake and Biamp Tesira variants offering a new level of integration possibilities.

Tannoy will also showcase many of its residential products, including the Prestige Gold Reference range, as well as the first public showing of the limited edition Revolution XT floor standing loudspeakers.

Tannoy, Lab.gruppen and Lake can be found in Hall 5, Stand R92.
