AUDAC IMEO1 is a 2.1 soundbar with Bluetooth and HDMI ARC designed for professional AV installations in hotels, huddle spaces and classrooms.
The IMEO1 Soundbar has been designed for professional AV installations with a number of useful features that make it stand out from the run-of-the-mill soundbars from other manufacturers.
The slim and elegant design and includes all required functions for expansion of any audiovisual system with an impressive sound, while having a minimal hassle for installation. It’s perfectly suited for installations such as classrooms, presentation rooms or meeting rooms where it can be used and installed in combination with screens, smartboards or projectors.
The acoustics feature two 1.75” high frequency drivers with an RMS rating of 15 Watt and a low frequency section composed of two 2.5” low frequency drivers with an RMS rating of 30 Watt, resulting in an overall 60 Watt RMS rating. The Class-D amplifier with integrated WaveSelect DSP processing and transmission line configuration for the low-frequency drivers offers a crystal clear sound reproduction with stunning low-frequency response. Selectable DSP presets offer optimization for applications such as presentations, music playback or video’s.
Various input possibilities such as an unbalanced line input, HDMI (ARC) input or SPDIF (optical and coaxial) allow compatibility with a variation of input sources, while Bluetooth allows wireless connections with portable devices.
In installations with multiple IMEO1’s installed throughout the building, it can be desirable to assign custom Bluetooth ID’s to distinguish them from each other. Typical applications are hotels, conference rooms, schools, etc.
The hotel mode function in the firmware offers a solution for these applications. An additional function is also implemented to define a specific wake-up source, allowing the IMEO1 to always turn-on with the same input source selected, no matter which input source was selected before power-down.
An included IR remote control allows input selection, volume control and EQ preset selection while the unique and clever wall mounting bracket allows convenient mounting to walls on any kind of surface or location with an optimal guiding and coverage for the cables. The angled front baffle with rotatable badge ensures that sound can be aimed towards the viewer when the IMEO1 is mounted either below or above the sceen.
An optional VESA mounting bracket allows the IMEO1 to be installed below or above a screen when mounted on a stand or cart.
The auto standby function ensures that the IMEO is automatically put in energy-saving mode after 15 minutes without input. This way, no unnecessary energy is lost, while the IMEO remains ready to play at any moment.
