AIR Wireless Companion Speaker to Debut at InfoComm 2016
Battery powered, wire-free companion speaker designed by Anchor Audio, Inc.
CARLSBAD, Calif. – InfoComm 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, marks the debut of the Liberty AIR and MegaVox AIR wireless companion speakers designed by portable sound system manufacturer, Anchor Audio, Inc. The company has offered unpowered companion speakers for many years, but now Liberty AIR and MegaVox AIR set a new industry standard, as the first battery-powered wireless companion speakers in Anchor Audio’s line.
Anchor Audio has set out to perfect the concept of a wireless companion speaker that offers dramatically expanded wireless range, increased system capacity, and instant ADA compliance. The AIRs are battery powered, perform 6-8 hours or more on a single charge, and can be placed 150+ feet from the transmitter. (Transmitters come as an optional built-in upgrade to the main sound system.) One transmitter can connect to an unlimited number of AIR wireless companion speakers. The AIR wireless technology offers 100 user-selectable channels operating within the 900 MHz frequency, which is one of the few clear channel ranges available and therefore limits interference from competing signals. Furthermore, the 900 MHz band offers expanded wireless range for an increased transmission distance. AIR companion speakers can also operate in ‘wired mode,’ which includes simply flipping a switch and plugging in a cable.
Currently, Anchor’s Liberty Platinum Portable Sound System and MegaVox Pro Portable PA System offer AIR wireless companion speakers.
The AIR companion transmitter also connects seamlessly with Anchor Audio’s Assistive Listening Devices (ALB-9000), which operate on the same 902-928 MHz, resulting in an immediate ADA-compliant sound system. Main-unit systems are available with up to two wireless microphone receivers in addition to the AIR wireless companion transmitter.
Like all of Anchor Audio’s portable sound systems, the AIR wireless companion speakers are manufactured in the USA, ship same day, and are covered by an industry-leading six-year warranty.
“Our dealer network started asking seriously for battery-powered wireless companion speakers last year, and because we work in close partnership with our dealers we went immediately into designing and engineering the AIR line after our successful 2015 launch of our Bigfoot Portable Line Array,” said Alex Jacobs, VP of sales for Anchor Audio. “Today the world is exceedingly wireless, especially in the portable sound system industry. Our customers simply expect wireless, and we are happy to continue delivering portable sound systems that meet and exceed our customers wishes.”
The Liberty AIR wireless companion speaker is priced at $1000 MSRP, and the MegaVox AIR wireless companion speaker is $550 MSRP. Both AIR wireless companion speakers will premiere at the 2016 InfoComm International Tradeshow this June at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, in Anchor Audio’s booth C9321. The Liberty AIR and MegaVox AIR will ship June 1, 2016.
