Highly versatile and easy to use

May 31st 2012


Cambridge, UK: In response to huge demand from AV installers, Imerge has introduced the S4000 - a sixth generation audio server that delivers premium multi-room entertainment with the emphasis firmly on high end audio performance.

Following its acquisition of the Imerge brand, Prism Sound has been developing new products to add to the brand's range of movie and music-focused entertainment servers. The S4000 perfectly combines Prism Sound's international reputation for high quality audio with Imerge's proven track record for innovation in the server market.

Highly versatile and easy to use, the S4000 offers the perfect solution to store, manage, automate and playback vast music collections in any residential or commercial environment. With five independent multi-room outputs as standard, the S4000 integrates seamlessly with a wide variety of control interface including AMX, Savant and Crestron, as well as with iPod and iPhone apps.

Archiving an existing CD or music file collection couldn't be simpler- and thanks to the S4000's integrated XiVA online music store customers can easily add to their audio collection by choosing from over 15 million songs and other audio content such as audio books and comedy performances from the comfort of their own couch.

The Prism Sound/Imerge pedigree is evident in every aspect of the S4000's design and feature set. Simple to use and intuitive, the S4000 incorporates the same sleek and stylish Graphical User Interface that has made the Award-winning Imerge MS1-HD and MS1-3D so popular with consumers. This significantly enhances users' enjoyment by providing a first-class browsing and control experience. There is also an extensive Cover Art service that automatically provides quality Cover Art images with new titles added all the time.

 A multi-lingual user interface that can be browsed in 12 languages including English, Russian, Spanis, German and Italian. More langues will be added in the future

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
