|BMB Electronics announces the launch of the innovative new ebode LightSpeaker at the Integrated Systems Europe 2010, Amsterdam. The ebode stand is located in Hall 1, stand 1K31, next to the BMB Electronics stand 1K22.|
ebode LightSpeaker combines low consumption LED Lighting with wireless sound in one easy plug and play system. The system saves money on electricity costs, and can be configured to deliver a distributed audio system in up to four rooms. LightSpeaker can be installed, connected, and enjoyed within minutes.The system has a whole array of possible applications in commercial, retail and educational spaces as well as for residential use.
Fitting a standard E27 screw socket and a myriad of different light fittings - recessed fixtures, table lamps and pendants, the ebode LightSpeaker’s dimmable LED produces 40,000 hours of light; the LED Light module will only need changing roughly every 15 years. It also reduces daily lighting expenses, using just 10 watts of power to produce light that’s equivalent to a 65 watt incandescent bulb. The LED contains no mercury or halogen gasses and, unlike incandescent bulbs, produces almost no heat.
Each ebode LightSpeaker’s custom-engineered speaker module features an 80mm wide full-range driver that utilizes digital amplification and signal processing to optimize the speaker’s performance capabilities and output.
Up to two audio sources can be connected to the transmitter in the base station, which wirelessly sends the sound to the LightSpeakers. The transmitter’s robust wireless technology accommodates up to four pairs of LightSpeakers, giving the option of high-quality stereo sound in four different rooms or areas where two separate listening zones can be set up. The transmitter - base station and included RF remote control can both control the source selection, zones, lighting levels and volume.
The patented LightSpeaker technology is designed by Kadence Designs and licensed exclusively to ebode and BMB Electronics BV for sale in Europe and South Africa. Ed Haase, an experienced acoustic engineer and President of Kadence Designs led the team of engineers who pioneered and developed the LightSpeaker.
One system includes two LightSpeaker modules, base station, and remote control. Additional pairs of LightSpeakers will be optionally available.
