Functioning as an Input or Output, Audio-Only Component Simplifies Installations and Allows Integrators to Create Unique AV Experiences
CEDIA 2021 – Just Add Power, a leader in video-over-IP distribution, 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 easily add a stereo audio source to any Just Add Power system or extract stereo audio from an existing transmitter.
“Over the past few years, we’ve focused on enhancing our Ultra HD over IP platform with audio functionality — from the industry’s first solution to support the Dante eight-channel chipset, to a transmitter that allows installers to cost-effectively add a stereo analog audio output,” said Taft Stricklin, sales team manager at Just Add Power. “Now we’re cranking the audio dial up to 11 with our ST1, which not only simplifies installations but provides installers with a powerful tool for creating unique experiences for their clients.”
With the ST1, integrators can easily build a stereo audio distribution matrix with unlimited inputs and outputs that run 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 and unique 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.
As with all models in the Just Add Power lineup, the ST1 provides unmatched scalability — integrating seamlessly with any generation of the company’s products.
