BlueBOLT Heads for Expansion: Part II
Last month, CustomRetailer talked to Panamax/Furman director of marketing, John Benz, about the upcoming expansion of the BlueBOLT technology. We promised you that this month, you’d receive input from dealers on their thoughts regarding BlueBOLT, but we also waned to hear from Dave Keller, Panamax/Furman’s SVP of sales and marketing, about what we might expect to see at the company’s booth at EXPO.
Said Dave, “At CEDIA EXPO 2012, Booth 3130 we will be making a number of exciting product introductions for the home theater and beyond. Providing an incredible value for entry- to mid-level home theater systems, the advanced protection and filtration technologies behind our MR series of power management products demonstrate that a low cost doesn’t have to come at the expense of style or performance. In addition, we will be introducing the first BlueBOLT-enabled product in our MD family of direct plug-in devices: the MD2-ZB. When used with the BB-ZB1 gateway, the smart plug brings the power of our BlueBOLT platform down to a very affordable level while providing consumers with a true indicator of their power consumption throughout the entire home.”
Also on hand will be Level 2 Noise Filtration (MR4000) and Linear Noise Filtration (MR4300 and MR5100), part of Panamax’s MR family of home theater power management solutions that complement any A/V system, while offering advanced protection from surges/spikes and maximizing equipment performance. With auto-resetting voltage protection (AVM) and protection from catastrophic lightning strikes with Protect or Disconnect circuitry, peace of mind is never out of reach.
These components also account for signal-level surges with universal coaxial, telephone or LAN (RJ-45) protection. Performance-robbing AC noise is filtered for system performance with the MR4000, which is available now. The MR4300 and MR5100 will begin shipping in October. CR
