LaON Technology will introduce their new product lines at KOBA 2018.
LaON Technology is a Korea based intercom manufacturer that has core technologies about wireless audio transmission. Unlike other intercom players who have long histories in the pro-audio industry, LaON's starting point was from a unique wireless technology it has. LaON has its own wireless SoC and RF module which had been developed in LaON's R&D house. And as we figured out that there are needs for the different and better wireless intercom solutions for a long time, we have designed and released wireless intercom systems based on our technologies on the market as our first bawling pin product.
LaON's digital wireless intercom systems operate in license-free and channel-rich 5GHz UNII band which was a totally different approach from the existing technologies applied on traditional intercom systems. As the wireless environments are significantly changing and getting even congested, the requirements for stable and seamless wireless intercom performance in various site environments is highly increasing by professional intercom users. Thus, what frequency the system operates in is one of the very basic key features that show the technology base of the system and capabilities for improvement and innovation. On 5GHz UNII band, there are approximately up to 29 frequency channels available to use depending on regions and there are relatively lesser wireless devices being used on the same frequency than other frequencies such as 2.4GHz. Hence, unless almost the frequency channels are occupied, users will be able to enjoy pleasant wireless communications experiences.
In the meantime, there could be a question on 5GHz for its wireless distance. LaON 5GHz intercoms offer approximately 100meters line-of-sight in average with the Base Station's antenna only and by connecting Remote Base Station(RBS), an IP based repeater, the coverage can be extended widely and stably without any data loss with the easy-to-wire LAN cables. LaON's patent-based repeater system, RBS can be connected up to ten(10) as for a standard feature and the number of connection can also be increased as per project requirements for customization or alternative solutions which enables users to integrate multiple studios or floors efficiently without a big system configuration. The system delay is less than 23msec, the industry lowest level and 7.2KHz audio bandwidth demonstrates the wired-like audio clarity.
Although LaON was a challenging newcomer and the market atmosphere is quite conservative for any new product, LaON has now been well entered into the intercom market and the advantages were proven in various applications such as broadcast, event production, performance, theatre, government, enterprise, university, house of worship, industrial and etc. It is not from our long experiences in this market but the unique technology bases that hit the needs on time. By entering into the market while there are many dependencies due to changes on frequency policies and regulations, congested wireless environment and, increased volume and complex requirements on wireless intercom, LaON has leant a lot at actual sites for what to do and where to go.
Based on LaON's wireless audio transmission and IP technologies, we are currently working on exiting new products and solutions in our own approaches which have never been introduced in the marketplace before and no more huge systems will be necessary in many scenes. We target 'Slim' system that enables to perform 'More' not just for the wireless communications in one system, and the reliable system that works even though the systems are not feasibly installed or deployed due to the site environment or limitation. Also, with the new products and solutions which will be released within this year by being applied LaON's new ideas and technologies, the number of full-duplex channels available will dramatically be increased and the system stability will be enhanced against various interference factors where many of the broadcaster, event production and theatre clients will be happy with for their big project operations. We will introduce the concepts of couple of new products and its samples to our distributors and partners during KOBA 2018 and display the prototypes.
Moving forward, LaON will always showcase the unique and interesting products as an 'INTERCOMmunication and its SOLUTION maker'.
Meanwhile, KOBA 2018 will be held a total scale of 27,997 sqm in COEX Exhibition Hall A, C, D and will be presenting the next generation's broadcasting services and the future of image, sound and lighting industry. Especially, during the KOBA exhibition period, more than 80 international broadcasting technology conferences are organized by The Korea Broadcasting Engineers & Technicians Association, and through the sound related technical expert seminar, organized by Korea Association of Sound Artists and Acoustical Society of Korea, provide an opportunity to acquire information specialized to the broadcasting system and sound.
