Alcorn McBride Brings New Products and Manufacturer Training to InfoComm 2011

Leading manufacturer of show control and A/V equipment for themed entertainment to introduce new solutions for audio and video.

Orlando, Florida – Alcorn McBride will introduce two new products at the InfoComm show in June. New items include a workflow solution for Alcorn McBride video players and an enhanced version of the 8TraXX multi-channel audio player. The company will also hold a show control training session.

8-TraXX – This updated version of Alcorn McBride’s popular audio playback unit now offers Ethernet control and remote update along with contact closure, voltage, RS-232 or MIDI control. With the 8TraXX, users can access eight independent stereo tracks from a single, economical rack-mount unit. Tracks are individually triggered for maximum flexibility in attraction designs.

MediaFlow – Alcorn McBride will introduce a complete video workflow solution. MediaFlow software encodes your source material and transfers it to Alcorn McBride video players. MediaFlow software is preconfigured to produce video 100% compatible with Alcorn McBride products. It steps through the process and quickly readies content for use. After your material is encoded, MediaFlow’s built-in FTP capability can automatically transfer files to Ethernet enabled devices. It accepts all the major video formats and outputs H.264 or MPEG2 video (MPEG or AAC audio). MediaFlow supports PAL and NTSC.

CTS Certified Training – Alcorn McBride Inc. will provide a CTS certified manufacturer training on Thursday, June 16th from 2:30pm until 4:00pm. The class, entitled Show Control Design and Programming, will introduce installers, consultants, and VAR’s to the concepts of show control. Attendees will learn how to integrate control with audio, video, lighting and user interfaces to provide a complete experience in any venue. This is a private session and interested parties should contact the company to attend. Registration is required for this limited-seating session. Those who complete the course earn 1 CTS RU.

Also on display at InfoComm 2011 will be Alcorn McBride’s current suite of audio, video, lighting and control products for themed entertainment. Products at the show will include the V16 Pro Show Controller, ShowTouch, Touch for iPad, the Digital Binloop HD, LightCue Pro, and the DMX OverRide.

“We have a lot to be excited about this year,” said Jeremy Scheinberg, Alcorn McBride COO. “We just celebrated our 25th anniversary and products we made two decades ago are still in operation. We’re adding new features to offer flexibility but our core product design has been proven solid.”
