The VX-3308WM is an all-in-one, compact voice alarm wall-mount system that also offers PA functionality

With the aim of improving PA systems at crowded airports, TOA has come up with an automated announcement system with improved voice clarity using its EN54-certified VX-3000 in combination with AviaVox’s intelligent announcement systems.

AviaVox is able to generate ‘more natural and human announcements’ in a multitude of languages and is connected to the airport’s operational database to receive constant flight status updates. In accordance with the individual airport’s policy, these updates trigger automatically generated announcements that are then distributed by the VX-3000, while addressing specific zones, prioritising announcements and offering comfort and atmosphere through background music.

The scalable, IP-based system also provides up to 320kW rated output power, making it applicable for small-to-large airports with up to 2,560 zones and 1,280 remote microphones. Meanwhile, the addition of TOA’s new VX-3308WM – an all-in-one, compact voice alarm wall-mount system that also offers PA functionality – allows its use in smaller and more remote locations. The coupling of the voice alarm and PA systems means only one system is required instead of two, to distribute the alarm. Emergency messages can be addressed to selected areas while other zones stay unaffected and normal PA continues. The VX-3308WM can also be combined with the modular VX-3000 cabinet rack system for distributed installation in high-rise or satellite buildings.

In other news, TOA has also also devised a range of conference and wireless systems. The D5000 aims to provide higher speech intelligibility, feedback suppressor (FBS), transmission encryption and an ‘ultra-light’ beltpack, designed with conferences, theatres, educational institutions and multipurpose halls in mind.

TOA has also announced that the latest SIP technology now allows its N-8000 intercom system to be integrated into existing communication systems via various SIP servers. The N-SP80 SIP intercom station, meanwhile, is now compatible with the G.722 audio codec. The device features easy unlocking to give simple access to controls and is ideal for building entrances, car park gates or other points of entry. Finally, the MA-725F digital matrix mixer is an all-in-one solution for multichannel or multi-zone applications combining a 6x4 audio matrix, DSP and four-channel Class-D amplifier into one chassis. It is equipped with four independent line inputs, two mic/line priority inputs and offers individually selectable background music for different zones as well as announcements.
