|Acutron supplies 30 Worlcast Equinox audio codecs to Portuguese Telecom operator PT Comunicações|
Acutron supplied to Portuguese Telecom operator PT Comunicações 30 Worldcast Equinox low-latency audio codecs aimed to transmit over X.21/V.35 leased lines, but able to work and automatically backup-switch to ISDN ir IP when needed. This supply is the corollary of a process started due to demands of professional broadcasters requiring full duplex communication between studios with no echo involved. The requirement was to ensure transparent coding with a high-spped compression algorithm ensuring a round delay within the 10mS range, in order that the boadcasters may work in a no-concern enviroment.

|Acutron supplies audio public information and entertainment systems using IP, featuring integration with the nurse call system supplied by Redislogar/Ascom, to the HPA in Faro and Hospital Internacional do Algarve in Albufeira Private Hospitals.|
|The aim was to provide decentralized systems that could coexist with an installed IP network used for other purposes. For example an operator can take his/her microphone when changing location, and simply plugging it in the next IP socket. Any extension of a central SIP dispatch (e.g. Asterisk) can send messages to the system. All equipment is monitored remotely via a browser. Acutron further developed an interface (shown in photo above) called PSA2, which allows the patient through the same bed pear used to call the nurse or turn on the light, to control sound speakers built into the furniture and also shared with the nurse call system or headphones, the TV, and access a large number of channels available from both the NetPA central server system or from outside. The system makes extensive use of Barix modules (represented by Acutron in Portugal) with firmware modules as well developed by Acutron. A single control does it all, avoiding patient fatigue.|
|Acutron supplies audio lynx surveillance system for the National Iberian Lynx breeding Centre|
|Always ready for off-the-track customer needs, Acutron developed a system that captures sound from the differen enclosures at the National Iberian Lynx breeding Centre. Different sounds are carried over IP to a control center, where they are analyzed. System provides programmed alarms to the central operator if sound pressure level in some zone is over a programmed threshold. The operator may access any of the enclosures using the NetPA software graphical user interface.|
In site the Centre uses surveillance cameras, the Lynx is known for having an almost-perfect camouflage, which makes them difficult to spot. Acutron's system is in fact the more adequate for first-line surveillance in order to detect stressed animals.

|A new 26-zone IP-base sound system for Colombo shopping mall in Lisbon|
|Acutron developed a new IP distributed public address systen, in which any source, any operator microphone or any zone to be covered may be at any physical distance from the virtual central, even many miles away.|
Based on hardware from both Acutron and our represented company Barix and featuring Acutron-developed software, the system uses any installed Ethernet network, not needing any dedicated network or fiber inftastructure. It is capable of total or partial compliance with EN60849 (emergency evacuation sound systems) or BS5839-8 (practices for sound-alarm systems), depending on the level of the equipment used in the setup.
We recall that compliance to these standards is not a pure equipment compliance, a piece of equipment is not "compatible", the system itself may be considered compatible, and it is a combination of equipment, installation (namely cabling) and the way the system was designed and implemented in terms of available capabilities.
The system is adaptable to any number of zones and is ideal for shopping malls, congress centers, railway ststions, airports and other installations where a public information system in which at any time operators and zones can be added without cabling inerventions is needed. It is now possible, by means of the Acutron® NetPA© software, for multiple operators to control the system from several different locations, as well as for those to become aware of the hardware used for message diffusion. The system is implemented as a prioritized structure built on security levels and its central software runs on a robust Unix/Linux server. Its terminals rely on browsers, so there is no need to do multiple software upgrades each time the system is changed, and the terminals may run on any platform and operating system, even on a cell phone.
The system server has the built-in capability to deliver multiple background music program contents, avoiding the usial CD players
