The New CVM Series Mixers Incorporate Both SKAA/SKAA Pro® Technologies, Providing the Wireless Reliability and Lightning Fast Latency Desired by Today’s Top DJs
EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada, Aug. 18, 2022 – Eleven Engineering, Inc. (elevenengineering.com), a market leader in semiconductor products for wireless audio for professional, home theater, multi-room, portable, 12 Volt (car, truck, motorcycle, power sports, marine) and gaming applications, is proud to announce that Cerwin-Vega’s new CVM Series mixers incorporate SKAA/SKAA Pro® technology. The series is scheduled to ship Q1 2023.
“Cerwin-Vega’s recently released VEGA Series studio monitors with SKAA/SKAA Pro® technology are already a hit, and so we are proud to once again incorporate these technologies in the new CVM Series mixers,” said Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering Executive Vice President – Sales and Marketing. “Today’s Pro DJ’s require fast and fixed very low latencies when going wireless, making SKAA the ideal solution for Cerwin-Vega’s new mixers that will satisfy these needs.”
Cerwin-Vega’s CVM Series mixers communicate wirelessly via SKAA Pro Mode (super low latency) to their SKAA-compatible speakers or SKAA-compatible power amplifiers.
“We are proud to present our new generation of high-technology mixers,” said Bob Chanthavongsa, Cerwin-Vega V.P. of Sales & Marketing. “These versatile mixers can operate either in a standard wired mode or in a wireless mode, including Bluetooth and SKAA and SKAA Pro Modes, making them perfect for those DJ’s who enjoy the ease of connections in a great compact size with a rugged design. The embedded SKAA/SKAA Pro technology allows them the reliability and lighting fast latency required by today’s DJs, as well.”
Additional prominent features include:
- 8, 10, 12 & 16 channels input models
- 3 -band EQ on all microphone channels
- High-pass filters and adjustable compressors on all microphone channels
- USB/SD card recording/playback
- High-quality DSP effects
- Ultra -compact and lightweight design
- USB interface can connect to computer for playback and recording
- Ruggedized metal case
- High gain antenna for error free SKAA transmissions
“One of the principal disadvantages of using traditional wireless audio solutions in a pro audio setting is inherent latency issues and navigating through an abundance of wireless traffic,” added Whitehead. “SKAA’s low latency ability is something that Bluetooth and WiFi audio-based solutions cannot accomplish for many reasons. However, there are even more demanding applications, such as critical studio and live performance (DJ) that require even lower latency. This is where SKAA Pro takes over.”
SKAA is the new wireless HiFi audio standard developed by Eleven Engineering, Inc. SKAA transmitters work with iOS & Android mobile devices, Mac & Windows computers, televisions, and just about any product with a line output or a headphone jack. SKAA is also available as a built-in technology not requiring an external transmitter in purpose-designed partner products, which are featured at SKAA.com. In environments laden with heavy Wi-Fi and Bluetooth traffic, SKAA navigates through these hostile environments with best-in-class reliability. SKAA also allows for uninterrupted audio signals which are delivered with the highest sound quality to all speakers without the latency that is inherent in other wireless solutions.
