AtlasIED Brings Back Award-Winning SHS Series Strategically Hidden Speaker to ISE 2020

Phoenix, AZ – Designed for inconspicuous installation in a wide variety of environments, AtlasIED's award-winning SHS Series, Strategically Hidden Speaker, will be shown at ISE 2020 in stand # 7-N190. Honored with an ISE 2019 Best of Show Award from Installation magazine (a Future publication), the SHS Series is a first-of-its-kind ceiling speaker designed for installations where wide coverage is crucial and high-definition audio must be heard, not seen.

Today’s business, retail, corporate, and educational environments put as much emphasis on interior design and aesthetics as on the quality and functionality of the integrated technology. The SHS has been carefully designed to blend into the aesthetic of any ceiling while retaining optimal sound performance. Exotically different and perfectly disguised, the AtlasIED SHS-Series is ideal for applications like background music, paging/notification, sound masking, and is easy to install in venues and facilities where technology should remain discreet.

Small But Mighty Speaker Delivers Top-Notch Audio Quality

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.

Available in a Variety of Sizes to Suit Any Project

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. 

“Our SHS Series demonstrates our commitment to the commercial AV, mass communications, and security industries through its unique design that sacrifices none of the speaker’s performance,” says Michael Peveler, VP of Sales, AtlasIED. “As an award-winning product, it’s clear that the SHS-Series offers integrators worldwide a solution that meets the needs of a variety of applications and provides real value to the customer looking for technology that marries form with function.”
