Yamaha Launches New Products and Updates at ISE 2019
Launched in response to customer demand, Yamaha’s multi-award winning VXC and VXS loudspeaker range is being expanded with the VXC2F 2.5” full-range, low profile ceiling speaker and VXC8S 8” bandpass ceiling subwoofer. The VXC2F is the shallowest model in the VXC series, with a back can less than 76.2mm/3” deep, while VXC8S is the first ceiling subwoofer in the range and includes unique VXC features like anti-drop tab and carrying band for safe, straightforward installation. The PK-C4 pendant mount option for the VXC2F will also be launched, with all VXC models available in black or white (paintable) finish.
Also being launched at ISE is the SWP2 series of network switches, which include 10Gbps fiber uplinks, making them ideal for high capacity Dante networking, including 96kHz. Both multi and single-mode models allow for longer distance transmission. With straightforward setup, rugged connectivity and Yamaha’s legendary reliability, the SWP2 series is designed to provide the optimum environment for mobile audio networks.
Yamaha's RIVAGE digital mixing systems are also receiving another significant upgrade, with ISE 2019 seeing the debut of RIVAGE V3.0.This firmware update adds the new DaNSe dynamic noise suppressor plug-in, developed by Dr K’s lab at the Yamaha Corporation in Japan to bring improvements in speech clarity for theatrical and broadcast applications. The update also adds Mix to Input routing, and workflows for global paste, DCA assignment and Custom Faders. All the improvements of RIVAGE V2.5 will also be on display, including Theatre Mode, which offers significant advantages for all types of theatrical production and support for Audinate’s Dante Domain Manager.
The SWP2 series network switch with 10G uplink ports allows a Dante optimized setup and VLAN presets to be recalled by flipping DIP switches.
The RIVAGE PM10 is a new generation of Yamaha PM digital mixing system. In terms of sound quality, operation, functionality, reliability, expandability, and more, the RIVAGE PM10 is a thoroughly refined flagship that defines the direction for future generations.
The RIVAGE PM7 is a digital mixing system consisting of the CSD-R7 Digital Mixing Console, one or more I/O racks for input and output, and dedicated interface cards for network connectivity. The CSD-R7 is the same size as the our flagship RIVAGE PM10 system CS-R10 Control Surface and has the same control layout. With built-in DSP it offers similarly high standards of operation and workflow efficiency in a relatively compact, portable system.
