MSE Audio announces that the SoundTube IPD-TSB2.0 STNet Dante-Enabled Soundbar is now shipping. The IPD-TSB2.0 Soundbar brings Dante connectivity from end-to-end in conferencing and boardroom video installations. Making the soundbar interoperable with other Dante products gives integrators additional flexibility when designing and installing audio systems. Built with high-quality materials and stylish brushed metal cosmetics, the IPD-TSB2.0 Soundbar is a reliable, unrivalled solution for any audio/video system.
The IPD-TSB2.0 features a built-in amplifier and DSP (digital signal processor). The soundbar measures only one- and one-half inches thick where the bar meets the TV, is 6.75in tall and 43in wide. It incorporates a right and left speaker with four 3in ultra-long throw polypropylene woofers with NBR surrounds, four bass radiators, and two 0.75in patented synthetic soft dome tweeters. Wall-mount and table-top hardware are included. The cabinet also has threaded inserts for mounting to a display wall bracket mechanism.
“Our customers have been asking for an AV over IP high-performance soundbar for conferencing,” says Mike Sipe, vice president, MSE Audio. “Most IP-based audio systems can use this – especially in areas like classrooms, offices and huddle spaces. It provides outstanding dialogue and clarity along with an open, wide sound stage.”
The Dante Soundbar is made of extruded aluminum and has an integrated metal grill which is designed to fit seamlessly underneath 55-inch and larger monitors. With digital signals plus PoE power sent directly to the speakers via standard category cable, SoundTube’s STNet soundbar is simple to connect. The intelligent amplifier with DSP monitors the functions of the speaker and can send an alert if there are any problems with the soundbar. Each IPD-TSB2.0 is configurable using SoundTube STNet Control Center software. The software is used to set up the soundbar via an 8-band parametric EQ, delay and input and output gain using a built-in pink noise generator. And, because they are on the Dante platform, they are interoperable with a host of other products worldwide. They may be used with SoundTube’s STNet Switch, offering up to 40 watts PoE to each speaker, or with standard PoE or PoE+ switches.
