SHS is Best of Show at ISE 2019

Phoenix, AZ (February, 2019) – AtlasIED announced today that it has won an ISE 2019 Best of Show Award from Installation magazine (a Future publication) for its SHS Series, Strategically Hidden Speaker—a first-of-its-kind ceiling speaker designed to blend into virtually any environment. A global electronics manufacturer providing comprehensive audio solutions for commercial business environments, AtlasIED introduced the SHS line for installations where wide coverage is crucial and high-definition audio must be heard, not seen. Future’s Best of Show Awards recognize and reward the achievements and innovations in product and service development at ISE 2019. 

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award from the judges at Future and Installation magazine,” says AtlasIED President and CEO John Ivey. “It shows that the industry is putting ever-increasing importance on the merging of technology and design. That spirit is embodied in the SHS line, while retaining optimal sound performance for business, retail, corporate, education, and other design-forward environments.” 

ISE 2019 Best of Show - SHS

The concealed design of the SHS is achieved by Adaptive Dispersion Lens Technology, a new, patented waveguide form unique to AtlasIED. Only a 3-inch diameter lens and a micro trim ring are visible on the ceiling. The dispersion lens can be easily painted or replaced with material to match the ceiling, allowing the SHS to blend in without compromising the architectural aesthetic of the room. For hard-to-match spaces, AtlasIED’s optional DesignLab™ color match process uses high-resolution printing technology to transfer any color or design onto the micro-diffuser, for visual continuity. 

Designed to deliver highly intelligible audio, the speaker has a 2-way driver providing high-definition sound. Sound exits the two-way transducer and passes through the patented adaptive dispersion lens for a smooth and uniform frequency response with no “hot spots” common to some loudspeakers. The speaker uses an integrated 32-watt 70V/100V transformer and 4 Ohm bypass with a sealed enclosure above the ceiling for optimal bass response. The speaker offers ultra-wide, 180-degree dispersion for full coverage in any environment.

Easy to install, the self-contained SHS comes with a speaker, enclosure, and adjustable tile rails. Drill a three-inch hole in the ceiling tile, set the speaker through the hole, and snap on the micro diffuser. Pull to retract the expandable tile rail alarms, and installation is complete. No rail screws are required for drop-tile ceiling installations.

The SHS Series speakers include three dispersive lens configurations for flexibility in any installation. The standard lens comes in 4mm and 8mm sizes, ideal for applications with low- to medium-height ceilings. The direct fire lens measures 4mm and includes a direct fire grille for improved intelligibility and greater sound dispersion for use in projects with high ceilings or applications where extreme intelligibility is required, such as public address systems and conference rooms.
