Lab Gruppen's Smallest Lucia Amplifiers are Born
Following on the highly successful launch of Lucia 70V output models during last year’s InfoComm show, Lab Gruppen is set to continue its tradition of cutting-edge product innovation with the unveiling of its three new Lucia 60W power models at InfoComm in Las Vegas: Lucia 60/2M, Lucia 60/2 and Lucia 60/1-70. Available with either four-in, four-out matrix-mixer (Lucia 60/2M), two-in, two-out configuration (Lucia 60/2) or two-in, one-out for the 70V model (Lucia 60/1-70); all with configurable DSP features like the equivalent larger models.
“Lucia has an exceptionally small footprint and multiple mounting options and its input flexibility provides installers with an absolutely reliable and highly-cost effective solution” notes Klas Dalbjorn of Lab Gruppen. “To further increase cost efficiencies we have introduced new 60W power models which now produce a 30% cost reduction in lifetime running costs whilst delivering all the same features as the alternative models.”
Central to Lucia’s cost efficiencies is its Energy Star certification. After 20 minutes of no signal input, the amplifiers automatically enter standby mode and power up within one second when signal returns. Additionally Lucia incorporate intelligent fan control where it provides silent operation in idle and lower output levels.
Lucia’s ultra-compact form factor – a half-rack 1U chassis – allows it to be tucked away inconspicuously wherever needed. Lucia mounts behind video screens using the included wall bracket, tucks away in rack shelves or drawers, or attaches to the optional pole mount.
With the release of the Lucia 60W models, Lab Gruppen is providing a new version of its free Application Browser software which will support all nine Lucia models. Also, a new improved rack mount kit is available for the entire Lucia range as well as LAB Level; a new elegant looking table-top level control.
