Control and automation manufacturer RTI is demonstrating new products in four categories at ISE 2024, Stand 2K130. Leading the new releases will be the RTI Intelligent Meetings Ecosystem and Audio Distribution DSP Matrix Amplifiers. 

“There will be a lot to see at the RTI booth,” says RTI Head of Global Marketing Bill Hensley. “We will lead with our Intelligent Meeting Ecosystem and new Audio Distribution Matrices, plus there a couple major launches that we will debut at the show. Let’s just say it’s products you would expect to see us showing. Come take the full booth tour; you won’t want to miss it!”

The First Collaboration System from RTI

Demonstrating at ISE 2024 and shipping in February 2024, the Intelligent Meeting Ecosystem is the first collaboration system from RTI. Promising to make every meeting an in-person meeting, it is anchored by the UC-IVB-50—the 4K Intelligent Video Bar and supported by the UC-IVB-MXT Media Xchange Transmitter, UC-IVB-EXM Expansion Microphone and UC-IVB-TM Display Mount. The Intelligent Video Bar enables 4K UHD collaboration displaying two different sources on the screen at any time. It features a beam-forming microphone array with four MEMS linear microphones that steer audio pickup to ensure every voice in the room is heard, a speaker bar with full-range 8W speakers with bass radiators to deliver full presence and clarity, and an intelligent 4K camera with 120° field-of-view and AI tracking. Intelligent Meetings is collaboration app-ready, compatible with the client’s chosen video conferencing system.

For wired BYOM connectivity, the Intelligent Video Bar boasts a 4K UHD HDMI input and USB 3.0 or USB-C (DP Alt mode and 60W PD). For wireless BYOD connectivity, it supports AirPlay and Miracast with soft AP for internet sharing. It supports up to two UC-IVB-MXT Media Xchange wireless transmitters for click-and-go sharing. For larger conference rooms, the optional UC-IVB-EXM expansion microphone ensures that all voices are heard. The Intelligent Meetings ecosystem integrates natively into RTI systems for room control, and with its included remote and web UI, the Intelligent Video Bar works standalone. The Intelligent Video Bar can be mounted with the included on-wall or table-top mounting solutions, giving installers multiple options for placement. For TVs mounted to stands, the optional UC-IVB-TM display mount attaches the Intelligent Video Bar to the back of the TV.

“Obviously, this is an office solution,” continues Bill. “But this ecosystem solution is a great line for residential integrators moving into office work. It’s a new category to compete in.”

New RTI Audio Distribution

Also new at the show is the RTI audio distribution DSP matrix amplifiers. The series includes the AD-46-100 4×6 DSP Matrix Amplifier – 100W for distribution of up to four audio sources to six zones, the AD-810-100 8×10 DSP Matrix Amplifier – 100W for up to eight sources across 10 zones, and the AD-1616 16×16 DSP Matrix for 16 sources and 16 zones. Each of the RTI audio distribution DSP matrix amps feature preamp outputs, enabling integration with external power amplifiers, 70V/100V amplifiers, or subwoofers. With scalability up to 64 zones of audio and sophisticated DSP capabilities, they are a future-ready investment that offers a level of audio manipulation that is comprehensive and precise. Each matrix features a 5-band parametric EQ, allowing integrators to fine-tune acoustic characteristics and tailor sound to specific spaces. The DSP’s mixing ensures exceptional performance in both commercial and residential settings.

Designed with Cool Power Class D amplification design that optimises performance while minimising heat generation, the amplifiers deliver up to 100W per channel power output provides for a robust and clear audio experience even in demanding environments. For projects that need more power, integrators can bridge outputs to enable a 200 watts per channel output.

“Ultimately, we’re providing solutions to help integrators expand their business opportunities,” concludes Bill. “We’re looking forward to showing these and more to ISE attendees. Join us in Stand 2K130.”
