Beamforming ceiling microphone with advanced speech reinforcement technology—enabling truly hands-free lectures and presentations
The MAS-A100 is a state-of-the-art speech reinforcement* and recording solution. Attaching and positioning lavalier microphones is time-consuming, and handheld microphones restrict movement. However, the Beamforming Microphone is simply affixed to the ceiling, then ready to use—leaving the orator location-free, hassle-free and hands-free to focus on presenting.
Our comprehensive solution employs audio volume stabilization and clear audio processing to produce sharp recordings. The MAS-A100 has two channel outputs. The dual-output channel enables speech reinforcement and recording simultaneously. The dedicated rec channel records with a wider capture range and optimal intelligibility—perfect for lecture capture.
Supporting Dante and PoE, MAS-A100 links with third-party systems via a single cable connection. Auto-calibration streamlines system configuration, and settings can easily be adjusted via the network using free MASM-1 management software. With simple settings, central management and no need to monitor battery use, MAS-A100 is a convenient classroom audio solution.
*A loudspeaker system is required for speech reinforcement.

Let ClarkPowell & NEC Support Your Educational Institution with the Right Technology
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law to support education institutions affected by the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic.
Schools and Universities can purchase educational technology (including hardware, software, and connectivity) to support teaching and learning. Schools are using this funding to improve preparedness of classrooms, planning for the return of students, coordinating remote learning and purchasing educational technology that aids in interaction between students and teachers.
Utilize Cares Act Funding to support hybrid and remote learning environments and improve student connectivity. These digital technologies can include interactive projectors and displays, collaboration tools, desktops and more. Use your funds soon and secure the right technology to engage students and support staff whether they are working in the classroom or working remotely.
Implementing the right technology, procedures and training improves preparedness and response efforts for school institutions.

Sony's first AI-based video analytics solution is transforming communication for lectures and corporate presentations.
Edge Analytics Appliance (REA-C1000) brings an exciting new dimension of audience engagement to lectures and corporate presentations. Advanced built-in AI-based video technology analyses feeds from connected cameras, without the expense and complexity of dedicated production teams and specialized additional equipment. Related text, written notes or images can be cleverly extracted and overlaid, to create compelling live presentations or recorded video content.
Due to the size and scope of this project, having ClarkPowell’s experienced designers and installers was integral to delivering this stunning 90-foot-wide LED video wall display.
This video wall has a huge WOW factor and you might imagine it would be up-front and center for all to view but…..
Surprisingly, it is not located in a space where many people actually have access. It is hidden away in the depths of a highly secure building in an undisclosed location where only the analysts get to see it.
This worldwide financial services client required centralized command centers to allow their internal IT teams to monitor their internal network operations 24/7. ClarkPowell designed and built identical command centers on the east and west coast of the United States that can house over 100 network analysts and collaborate remotely.
Each video wall is 8 ft. 9 in. tall by 90 ft. wide to allow viewing of multiple web-based dashboards in the expansive space. Multiple teams can view and manage network events across the organization, while management teams confer with each other in the center’s many conference rooms. These centers can also share window views with the organization’s cyber security command rooms and executive leadership to provide the highest level of security for their customers.
Major system components for each include:
Planar direct view LED video wall
Planar touch screens
T1V interactive collaboration tools
Extron Quantum video wall processing engine
Crestron Digital Media routing and signal processing
Crestron touch screen control
Cisco video teleconferencing
Video walls transform a space into a digital canvas that captures everyone’s attention. Not every company needs a video wall of this size and ClarkPowell can build a video wall for any application and environment. As the technology has matured there has been a significant drop in the cost so there has never been a better time to contact an expert to discuss your video wall project. 800 532 1099 email@example.com
ClarkPowell is pleased to announce the appointment of Jacob Meadows into our newly created position of National Project Coordinator.
We have seen a consistent rise in client requests to install facilities nationwide and, although we have been providing this service for many years for our customers based in the Carolinas with national branches, we have decided that many other clients could also benefit from this service.
Asked about how he feels about his new role, Jacob says “I’m delighted and being tasked with growing ClarkPowell’s presence nationally is really exciting. The position lends to what I have been doing for the past two decades and I think I’ve got the experience to grow the business outside of the region”.
“I’ve delivered successful live events for over twenty years, starting out as a technician pulling cables and working my way through sales, project management, then team leadership and then executive roles. I have traveled all over the United States as well as internationally, planning the logistics for live events from concerts and private parties to corporate events and fundraisers.
Jacob will be working extensively with our PSNI partners in the US and beyond to deliver the same value and high-quality projects that ClarkPowell is known for in the Carolinas. He will also be tasked with building relationships in other markets where there is not a strong PSNI presence to provide a truly national reach.
“A quote I read a while back - I think as far as working in a team, I believe that respect is the currency of consistency and that is one of my core values that I still hold strong and helps me grow. I’m excited - it’s a slightly parallel universe to what I am used to, but my strength in planning and global logistics will help me grow the role into a big success for ClarkPowell”.

I have a camera. I have a network switch (connected to a LAN or WAN). I have a computer.
I can take all three of these, link them together, and have them talking to one another like old friends. With a Ethernet cable, I can take the output of a camera, plug it into a switch, and have the camera’s output become a video and audio source on my network.
But this isn’t your typical streaming video. This is Network Device Interface video. It’s broadcast quality video, perfect for live production and recording.
Let’s say you have four cameras. Or maybe a bunch of cameras. And let’s say you want all of the cameras visible on different computers throughout your facility. Safe. Secure. Password protected. Plug all of the cameras into your local network switch, with the blessing of your IT department, and depending on user permissions, each computer can monitor, record, and control (i.e. a PTZ camera) the video. The beauty, in this case, is there’s very little bandwidth needed on the switch. No expensive video routing, no expensive HDMI or video cable runs. Plug in the camera, and it’s available to everyone with the proper permissions.
Recorded video can be sent to production or further encoding. Monitored video can be used for quality control. And the PTZ cameras can be controlled remotely- every pan, tilt, and zoom.
Whether you work in a post-production facility or with a government PEG channel, or any points in between or outside the norm, NDI is a technology you should be looking at now. It will revolutionize how your facility produces, records, monitors, and all-around wrangles your video.
Network Device Interface (NDI) is a royalty-free software standard developed by NewTek to enable video-compatible products to communicate, deliver, and receive broadcast-quality video in a high-quality, low-latency manner that is frame-accurate and suitable for switching in a live production environment.
