A SUCCESSFUL TRIP TO ISE FOR AMBER INTERNATIONAL

There was a constant buzz on both stands, with visitors interested in the demonstration we had set up, as well as the other solutions on display.

As the dust settles from a hugely successful ISE 2013, EMEA Master Distributor, Amber International is encouraged by the response received from visitors to its stands. A year on from its launch and Amber returned to the show with an exciting range of products from URC, TruAudio, Kinetik Labs, Forge and Terra Speakers.


"It was great to be back at ISE and see the progress we have made within the first year of trading" says Stuart Tickle, Managing Director of Amber International. "Once again, the show was fantastic for us. We had an array of new products to introduce to visitors and also several brand announcements. There was a constant buzz on both stands, with visitors interested in the demonstration we had set up, as well as the other solutions on display. We are delighted to announce that we have rebooked for ISE 2014, and look forward to seeing everyone at the show again next year."

Amber International set up its URC Total Control demo on the stand to provide an interactive demo which illustrates the capabilities of the multi-room audio solution. With a number of different control devices, visitors were able to get hands-on with the technology. A new announcement at the show was the partnership between URC and Extra Vegetables, which provides full Sonos feedback on iOS devices, remotes and in-wall keypads. This on-going partnership will see a wealth of two-way modules produced for Total Control in the coming months

Elsewhere on the stand was the DMS-AV amplifier which delivers crystal clear audio and video to any home theatre or entertainment room. In stock and now shipping through Amber's territorial distributors, the system is designed to perfectly integrate with a URC Total Control system. A new addition to the line-up and also on display was the THZ-100, an easy-to-integrate digital thermostat which allows homeowners and commercial property owners to manage their energy consumption. Visitors were particularly interested in the new 7" TKP7000 capacitive-touch panel which provides dedicated control capabilities such as lighting control, cameras, multizone audio and energy management from a slim wall mount unit which works alongside all the other user interface options.

Also on display was TruAudio's THIN-CEILING speakers which encompass a sleek, attractive design, with a frameless Ghost style grill, these affordable speakers deliver top quality sound and are available in numerous sizes and specifications to suit most applications. Amber introduced the brand new SAT3 two way satellite speaker series at ISE which offers 360˚ sound positioning via a unique magnetic mounting system. The SAT3 is versatile enough for mounting to walls, ceilings, on shelves or within a single gang box. Completing the array of TruAudio products was the SLIM300 LCR soundbar, a thin home cinema speaker solution at a mere 56mm depth. The solid, one-piece aluminium enclosure allows for close to wall mouthing as the brackets do not add to the thickness.

Kinetik Labs displayed its KISP-E160-LP and KISP-E200-LP speakers which feature discreet, low profile grilles and boast two way array designs with 200mm/160mm Polypropylene bass and mid driver and pivotable 25mm silk dome tweeter, which can be angled 30 degrees in any direction from the centre thanks to its ball and socket design. To allow for different installation circumstances the speaker impedance can be switched to 4 or 8 Ohms.

The Thin Line Series from Forge provide a quality yet affordable racking solution for those installations where space is limited. As the name suggests, these floor standing and wall mounted racks are ultra-thin at only 485mm (19.125") wide. The new Stealth series is of heavy duty thicker gauge steel and will support the heaviest loads, yet both ranges are flat packed! Forge has recently introduced the rack configurator tool which allows installers to electronically construct rack setups and present it to the customer before ordering any products, making the specifying stage a lot simpler.

Completing Amber's portfolio was a demo that highlighted the water resistance of the 'All Climate' outdoor speakers from Terra. Remaining in a cylinder of water for the duration of the show, this range are ideal for outdoor use around patios, gardens and pools as they blend into the outdoor surroundings and will withstand all weathering conditions.
