LAS VEGAS(June 6, 2018)—Yamaha Professional Audio will introduce the new VXL1-16PSpeaker and SWR2311P-10 PoE Switch at InfoComm 2018 in Booth #C1346. The new products target the installed commercial audio market.
The VXL1-16P is a PoE-powered, Dante-enabled line-source speaker, well suited for conference rooms. Its slim shape is half the size of a general column speaker, allowing the VXL1-16P to blend with the aesthetics of a room and is available in black or white.
No power amp is required for the VXL1-16P. By deriving power and network communication over the same cable, the VXL1-16P simplifies wiring and can be remotely monitored for uptime.
The VXL1-16P comes with wall brackets for flush mounting, and uses the same accessories as the similarly designed VXL1 passive speaker line for angle adjustments or pole mounting.
The Yamaha SWR2311P-10G L2 is a half-rack 10-port, 1Gbit enterprise-grade network switch. Addressing the PoE-hungry needs of installed sound today, the switch offers a massive 240W PoE budget, supplying the maximum possible 30W PoE on all 8 PoE-driven ports simultaneously.
The SWR2311P-10G powers from a standard IEC port. Network ports 1-8 capably drive PoE-powered speakers like the new Yamaha VXL1-16P speaker as well as touch panel controls, conference mics, cameras, Dante computer audio interfaces, and WiFi access points. Ports 9-10 are traditional combo ports, using more RJ45s or SFP slots for fiber connection.
The SWR2311P-10G is built for speed and offers configuration presets for Dante optimization. It can also be manually configured for changes to VLANs, LAGs, ACLs, and more. Network health can be managed using Yamaha LAN Monitor software or using SNMP for links to existing IT monitor systems.
Yamaha’s RK-SWR rack tray allows multiple Yamaha network devices to be mounted together. Ventilation slots in the switches and tray line up for continuous airflow, maximizing the life of the product.
Product availability is expected late summer 2018.
