XTA WALKABOUT WIRELESS CONTROL KIT
MAKES SYSTEM SETUP EVEN EASIER
119th AES CONVENTION, NEW YORK, NY, October 7, 2005 —
XTA Electronics, a leader in sound reinforcement, digital signal processing
and speaker controller systems for the past 12 years, is exhibiting
the Walkabout Kit, a complete wireless solution that provides control
over XTA’s DP Series of loudspeaker and dynamics products via
a WiFi Ethernet link.
The Walkabout Kit is the result of extensive research
by XTA into the most reliable, straightforward method for interfacing
with the company’s DP226, DP224, DP6i and SiDD. According to Jack
Kelly, President of Group One Ltd., “With thousands of XTA speaker
management systems in use, there was a real demand for a fast and convenient
solution to getting a great sound. The Walkabout Kit provides an easy
way to get the most from an XTA system, and wireless means that users
aren’t tied down by cables — they’re free to work
from wherever they need to be, up to 300' away.”
The Walkabout Kit features a powerful NetGear WiFi Card
for greatly extended range and improved stability over WLAN systems
built into laptop or notepad PCs. This is combined with a Wiser WLAN
to Serial converter, which is programmed at XTA to maximize its speed
when working with AudioCore, a new version of XTA’s popular computer
interface that works with TCP/IP.
New firmware has been developed by XTA for the DP226,
DP224, DP6i and SiDD, so reprogramming the Wiser basic configuration
settings is fast and easy. For even faster setup, users can access factory
presets and be up and running in minutes. An included PC utility provides
comprehensive setup access, should a user need to move beyond the default
settings for any reason.
