Exclusive Features that Distinguish VoiceStar
1. 6-by-11’ changeable message sign that can be raised over 13’ high. The 3-line, 8-character display employs lens-enhanced LEDs with 30-degree angularity and 4-LEDs/pixel for full brightness with auto dimming keyed to ambient lighting. Up to 199 user-controlled sign messages created and stored, in addition to 199 pre-programmed standard messages. Up to 50 message sequences created and stored. Sign displays programmed for automatic, scheduled changes.
2. Only our transmitter (TR.6000 HQ5.0) features full 5000 Hz audio bandwidth to comply with new FCC rules that allow for high quality broadcasting. The transmitter employs a modern synthesized frequency system, so that if a frequency change ever is necessary, it can be easily done without component changes or board-level work. This transmitter also utilizes an efficient Class D amplifier, comprised of only two driver devices for highest reliability and is the only such unit manufactured and type-accepted for TIS applications in the United States. Moreover, it is approved for military use on 510-530 kHz, 1610-1700 kHz (Certification: J/F 12/07677). We also provide he HQ5.1 Broadcast Quality Audio Processor to take advantage of new FCC audio-filtering standards for expanded bandwidth TISs (certified by the FCC on February 18, 2016, for exclusive use with the TR.6000 Transmitter). The processor increases broadcast quality, intelligibility and loudness.
