From humble beginnings to worldwide recognition, MESA/Boogie has remained the original boutique Home of Tone, hand-crafting amplifiers of uncompromising quality from the world’s finest materials in California, USA. Founder Randall Smith instilled basic principles into MESA such as passion, drive, integrity, and excellence, and his insistence on making the best amplifiers has guided half a century of breakthrough innovations, elevating the amplifier into an instrument in its own right--one with the power to shape and create musical genres. MESA/Boogie is proud to announce three new releases in the storied California Tweed series with the addition of the California Tweed 6V6 2:20 in 1X12 Combo, 1X10 Combo, and the compact 2:20 Head, all hand-crafted in their Petaluma, CA shop. The MESA/Boogie California Tweed Series is available now at authorized MESA/Boogie dealers and on www.MESABoogie.com Based on the award-winning California Tweed 6V6 4:40, MESA has distilled the essence of tweed-based performance and authentic 6V6 character in a new, more compact format. The new California Tweed 2:20 is a beautifully simplistic design that raises the bar in the world of vintage tone. A quick glance at the front panel of the California Tweed 2:20 reveals single-channel simplicity. Channel features include Normal & Low Inputs, Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Presence, Reverb, & Master Controls. MESA’s legendary vintage all-tube, spring reverb with external reverb switching jack and a fully buffered, tube-driven series FX loop round out a feature set that delivers everything needed for golden tone, and absolutely nothing more. The California Tweed 2:20 is powered by 2x 6V6 Power Tubes while the preamp features 5x12AX7 and 1x12AT7 preamp tubes. MESA’s patented Incremental Multi-Watt™ (Patent 9,917,560) Power Amp, featuring Duo-Class™ (Patent 7,173,488) and Dyna-Watt™ technologies, provides three power levels, two operating-classes, and three wiring options via a single 3-Way Rotary Switch. The following power options are featured: 20 Watts - 2x6V6 Class A/B Pentode – Fixed Bias 10 Watts - 2x6V6 Class A/B Triode – Fixed Bias 1 Watt - 1x6V6 Pentode, Single-Ended Class A – Cathode Bias Maintenance-free, Fixed Bias (20 and 10-Watt Modes) and Cathode Bias (1-Watt Mode) both provide consistent, maintenance-free performance. Whether players choose to run pedals straight into the input or through the included fully buffered, tube-driven series FX loop, the California Tweed 2:20 is the perfect partner for pedals and delivers an ideal platform for pedal users in a compact, lightweight head, 1x12 or 1x10 Combo format that expands vintage tone and defines portability. With classic 6V6-Tube performance, controlled by MESA’s patented 3-position Multi-Watt switch, the new California Tweed 2:20 provides 3 of the most sought-after vintage, American power sections in one amp, all available at the flip of its 3-positon, Multi-Watt power switch. The result is the ultimate collection of real, vintage, low-powered tube amps all from one of the smallest, lightest, most portable, and price-friendly Boogies ever – available in the classic formats of a compact head, 1x10 or 1x12 combo, both loaded with premium Jensen® Blackbird 40 Alnico speakers.
VuWall Expands PAK Video Wall Node Family
VuWall, a technology leader in video wall control systems and unified visualization solutions, is expanding its award-winning, cost-effective, and scalable PAK™ video wall processing appliance family with a new model, the PAK 20. Featuring the same hardware as the existing PAK 10 model, PAK 20 supports two 1920x1080@60Hz outputs or one 3840x2160@60Hz output, along with multi-format decoding.

"Not every video wall installation is the same, nor do they demand the same support," said Mark Schmidt, chief technology officer of VuWall. "Due to the overwhelming popularity of PAK and its successful launch, we decided to add granularity to our product line to meet the output requirements of our client's projects more accurately and bring even more cost-savings to their deployments to offer more cost-effective solutions without compromising on performance." Recipient of multiple ISE 2022 and InfoComm 2022 Best of Show awards, VuWall's PAK can operate as a standalone device or can be stitched with other PAK nodes to build an IP-based video wall that is infinitely scalable. With the cost-effective and compact appliance, integrators can simplify video wall deployments by reducing the number of connections and eliminating a single point of failure — reducing project risk and offering improved reliability. In addition to variable output support, PAK features multi-format decoding of up to 32 HD streams per device, including H.264, NDI and remote desktops, or virtualized browsers using VNC. As part of VuWall's ecosystem, PAK is managed by the company's award-winning TRx centralized management platform. Easy to set up and configure, PAK is perfectly designed for multi-room visualization, situational awareness, control rooms and corporate workspaces. Its eco-friendly design boasts a compact form factor and low power consumption. PAK is small enough to be mounted behind monitors, saving rack space and reducing extended video cable runs. As VuWall's core software platform, TRx is the perfect solution for seamless multi-video wall and single-display control and visualization throughout multiple rooms, floors, and campuses. It is the only platform that distributes AV-over-IP signals and provides full-featured video wall management software. TRx features an intuitive interface with easy, drag-and-drop operation; a built-in, HTML-based control panel designer; scripting; advanced security and user rights management; and an extensive API. Thanks to its interoperable and hybrid design, it simplifies the deployment of complex AV-over-IP projects with a single centralized platform that installs easily while routing and servicing hundreds of sources without any programming.

Vaddio Launches IntelliSHOT-M ePTZ Camera Certified for Microsoft Teams
Vaddio, the global leader in robotic PTZ cameras and camera control systems, today announced its new IntelliSHOT-M ePTZ camera specifically engineered and certified for Microsoft Teams Rooms. The IntelliSHOT-M guarantees a consistent, repeatable, and high-quality Teams experience. "Vaddio has always been a trusted partner for enterprise-grade solutions," said Darrin Thurston, vice president and general manager at Vaddio. "As a certified device partner, we ensure customers have a no-compromise Teams experience. Users can confidently and easily start and conduct meetings that achieve the highest camera standards for meetings set by Microsoft right out of the box." Vaddio's IntelliSHOT-M professional camera builds upon the decades of industry leadership of Vaddio video collaboration solutions in large conference room and classroom settings with the trusted collaboration platform of Microsoft Teams Rooms. Like the IntelliSHOT ePTZ camera released last year, the IntelliSHOT-M features 30x zoom with 70.2-degree field of view and is equipped with Vaddio's advanced IntelliFrame™ technology, the only auto-framing solution that can be adjusted based on the room conditions and user's preferences. The technology is the culmination of Vaddio's years of research and engineering delivering the most precise and reliable auto-framing experience. Rather than rely on facial recognition alone, which can fail with facial coverings or falsely identify objects like posters on the wall as people, IntelliFrame uses a combination of exceptionally sensitive motion detection and complex algorithms to deliver smooth, accurate, and reliable participant framing. For AV integrators, IntelliFrame promises personalized video performance with every installation. With simple, custom features like one-touch masking, integrators can outline the camera's field of view, so it doesn't capture nearby, unintended participants, i.e., students in the front row, windows, busy hallways, projection screens, or displays in the front of the room. IntelliSHOT-M also allows fine-tuning the camera's speed for following a presenter walking and how tight the shot should be around the instructor. The integrator can adjust the wait time before framing additional people up at a whiteboard, how often the auto-framer resizes the image, and limit how much zoom is allowed. But more importantly, these options aren't an on/off toggle but on a spectrum, so professional contractors can make the most out of every installation. Sometimes projects aren't that complicated, and time is of the essence, so IntelliSHOT-M is preprogrammed with six standard configurations like "responsive lecture capture" and "default conference" to make it fast to install and configure without compromising system performance. IntelliSHOT-M is PoE+ powered, and network connectivity allows IT administrators and tech staff to manage and control the camera remotely via Vaddio's free, web-based user interface. They can select Vaddio IntelliSHOT-M cameras from the network, choose an action like rebooting the device or conducting mass firmware updates on hundreds of devices all at once, saving time and labor for corporate or educational campus staff with hundreds of rooms to oversee.

Vaddio Debuts EasyIP Audio Additions at InfoComm 2022
Vaddio, the global leader in robotic PTZ cameras and camera control systems, recently expanded its AV-over-IP EasyIP ecosystem featuring Dante® networked audio with three new audio solutions that will be on display in the Legrand | AV booth W903 at InfoComm 2022. Through its partnership with Audinate®, Vaddio has developed premium products that easily integrate into new or existing systems and deliver high-quality audio. The new offerings include EasyIP Ceiling Speaker D, EasyIP AMP D, and EasyIP CeilingMIC/AMP D. "The value of easy-to-install, high-quality conferencing solutions cannot be understated for the integrator and user experience," said Paul Cords, director of product management at Vaddio. "Whether installing a new or existing AV system, Vaddio has the networked audio products you need. Our latest EasyIP additions continue Vaddio's commitment to the Art of Easy. Integrators can add superior audio solutions into the room with just one Cat cable. It's simple for the integrator and flawless for the user." At InfoComm, integrators will see how to effortlessly incorporate rich in-room audio into an EasyIP system with the amplified EasyIP Ceiling Speaker D. The EasyIP AMP D powers passive speakers and brings the ease of Dante networked audio to any space. For even more convenience, the EasyIP CeilingMIC/AMP D features Vaddio's popular Dante ceiling microphone with a built-in amp for powering nearby analog speakers with one PoE ethernet connection. "Vaddio's lineup of AV over IP products, EasyIP, has been wildly successful over the past few years. However, we also want to ensure that our integrator community knows these new audio products are plug and play in any Dante-networked audio ecosystem — and at a price point that makes specifying additional microphones easy on the project budget," said Cords. Vaddio's newest audio offerings are featured alongside other AVoIP audio solutions like the EasyIP ceiling and table microphones, EasyIP Mixer, and AV Bridge 2x1. The EasyIP Mixer features a Dante audio matrix that allows installers to combine Dante audio sources with EasyIP cameras, making it an easy production switcher. The AV Bridge 2x1 combines Dante audio with analog video mixing functionality in a single device.
Yamaha Zooms in on Impeccable Audio Environments at InfoComm 2022
Yamaha Unified Communications will showcase its range of audio solutions that are redefining effortless and effective collaboration and communication in any meeting application — remote, hybrid, or in person — at InfoComm 2022. In booth W1151, the company will demonstrate its latest innovation, the VSP-2 Speech Privacy System, along with its comprehensive ACEDIA conferencing system, RM Series microphones, and YVC Series conference phones. "Impeccable — that's what today's meeting and learning audio environment needs to be in order for everyone to be productive," said Holger Stoltze, Senior Director of Technical Sales and Marketing, Yamaha Unified Communications. "Every one of our solutions exhibit this distinction, including our new VSP-2. It was designed to solve the noise, installation, and cost challenges plaguing traditional sound masking systems. We can't wait to see everyone at InfoComm and share more about the critical role audio is playing across all applications." - Smart, Simple Speech Privacy Yamaha's VSP-2 Speech Privacy System prevents information leakage without emitting any distracting sound-masking audio, creating an environment that makes it easy to converse in almost any office meeting space. Designed for quick retrofit, the unique system layers in three key features for optimal speech privacy: high-performance Info-Masking Technology, which is developed to mask the human voice in unwanted areas with a sound level that is 8 dB lower than conventional systems; environmental audio with four audio options that is mixed to the speech sound masker; as well as four types of sound effects that are added to unobtrusively distract others from hearing private conversations. The control unit allows users to power the system on and off, select their preferred sound effect (guitar, piano, music box, or digital device) and environmental sound (forest, brook, urban clatter, or air conditioner), and set the performance and volume level for a personalized room environment.To install, either two, four, or eight VSP-2 micro speakers are simply mounted to the ceiling or wall with the included hardware and speaker cable (non-plenum rated). - The Perfect Comprehensive Conferencing Bundle Featuring Standalone Microphone Options Yamaha's ADECIA conferencing solution is an innovative family of communication products that provides a complete and customizable audio solution, delivering the most comfortable and effortless remote conferencing experience for any meeting or learning space. The easy-install solution is comprised of four Yamaha products: a choice of microphones — RM-CG ceiling array, RM-TT tabletop, or RM-W wireless — in addition to the RM-CR processor, Yamaha's long-trusted PoE switches, and VXL Series line array speakers. The complete solution immediately detects all components of the system and optimizes their configuration for the room environment, accounting for the location of speakers and microphones, reverberation, and echo behavior. Setting up a room is done through the system's configurator in four effortless steps. With USB, Bluetooth®, Dante, and analog connections, this flexible system can fit a variety of meeting spaces. The RM Series microphones within the ADECIA solution are also available as standalone options. Designed around the Dante platform, these microphones pack all of Yamaha's powerful sound technologies, including automatic voice tracking, auto gain control, adaptive echo cancellation, noise reduction, and reverberation suppression for optimal collaboration experiences – while seamlessly integrating with the room's existing conferencing equipment or a variety of third-party components. - Conference Phones for Effortless Collaboration Anywhere The YVC series offers scalable device configurations to suit the room size, group size, and collaboration needs. The YVC-200 USB & Bluetooth® Speakerphone is perfect for small meeting rooms with up to four people. Meeting rooms with four to 10 people will benefit from the YVC-330 USB & Bluetooth Speakerphone, which features Yamaha's innovative SoundCap technology to eliminate background noise. In addition, two YVC-330s can be daisy-chained to cover up to 16 participants. Large meeting spaces, where up to 40 people can gather, will require the YVC-1000's separate microphone and speaker system. Each model features the company's innovative sound technologies, including Human Voice Activity Detection, speaker tracking, and dynamic acoustic echo cancellation that make conversation stress-free and intuitive. They are software-agnostic and fully compatible with commonly used OSs and remote conferencing services, such as Microsoft® Teams, Google Meet, Cisco Webex®, Zoom, and more. - Yamaha Shares Valuable Insight at InfoComm Learning Sessions Yamaha's Holger Stoltze will also present two sessions at InfoComm: "Room Impact on Selecting the Right Microphone Technology" on Wednesday, June 8, room W311-W313; and "The New Demands of Hybrid Education on Classroom Audio" on Thursday, June 9, room W322-W324. In the Wednesday session, Stoltze will address several of the common problems and discuss why specific microphone technology might or might not be a good solution. In the Thursday session, he will share the solutions for guaranteeing great audio in hybrid learning environments.

Yamaha and 1 Beyond Partner to Redefine the Audio and Video Speaker-Tracking Experience
Yamaha Unified Communications today announced the ADECIA Ceiling Solution, engineered with Yamaha's quality audio technology and expertise, integrates seamlessly with 1 Beyond's Automate™ VX voice-activated camera switching solution to provide a highly accurate speaker-tracking experience. The integration uses a web-based room design software, which requires zero programming, and is now available for corporate, university, and government meeting spaces. "1 Beyond is a leader in the world of intelligent camera and automated camera switching," said Phil Marechal, VP of Business Development and Product Management at Yamaha Unified Communications. "Similarly, Yamaha's ADECIA leverages our dynamic beam tracking technology to pick up and deliver conversations clearly to the far end. This combination of best-in-class voice tracking and audio processing ensure conference participants have the clearest communication possible for an all-around productive meeting." The hybrid meeting experience is at its best when in-room participants are seen and heard clearly. 1 Beyond's multi-camera Automate VX solution creates this optimal hybrid experience by showing the active speaker whenever they talk. As different participants speak, the system cuts cleanly from camera to camera, without any observable camera movement or switching. It also features an optional Conversation Mode that shows the two most recent speakers in a side-by-side view. The Automate VX solution supports up to 12 cameras placed strategically around the room and multiple ADECIA ceiling units, allowing for automatic camera switching in a wide variety of room types, including large and complex spaces. "The 1 Beyond Automate VX solution can take advantage of unique features in the ADECIA microphone to improve camera tracking such as its Human Voice Activity Detection technology that differentiates voice from noise," says Rony Sebok, CTO of 1 Beyond. "This, together with reliable audio position information from the mic, enables the Automate VX solution to aim cameras accurately for talkers in the room whether they are seated or standing and to ignore extraneous noise." ADECIA utilizes four beams to automatically track voices around the room simultaneously, enabling not only uncompromised communication with no dead spots but also endless table arrangements in multi-purpose spaces. In addition to ADECIA's dynamic, multi-beam tracking technology, the microphone innovation is designed to overcome the common challenges integrators face with implementation, configuration, and room acoustics by providing all components required for a successful installation and automatic technologies that reduce setup time, costs, and complexities. It automatically detects components, configures devices, and optimizes audio performance for the room environment — adjusting for reverberation characteristics, echo behavior, speaker/mic position, and more.
