digital PA provides an easy to use audio system with leading edge technology that is effortlessly customised and completely networkable.
The ‘digital’ part of thisPA paging and intercom system uses IP networks to distribute the audio signal to paging locations across buildings or campuses, or anywhere else in the reach of the IP network. digital PA systems can be configured to have any number of watts of amplifier power and are often used in schools and other education campuses. A major benefit of these systemsis that they can be used for selective paging to a specific classroom or to full premises. The system is intelligent and programmable to many different configurations.
The digital PA uses existing standard network infrastructure to allow a campus wide system with full integration between buildings and other areas without the need for additional campus wide cabling.
Each speaker is individually addressable with multiple priority configurations that can include the Period Bell, Warning and Evacuation Systems, Localised and / or campus wide announcements and even background music systems.
Additional microphones, paging panels and other audio sources can be connected seamlessly to the system.
With the latest in mobile technology multiple zones and source selectors can be configured and maintained from a single website.
Network Amplifier Modules (NAM)
Network Amplifier Modules (NAM) can be installed in the field near the location of the speakers. Each NAM has 4 x 12 Watt RMS class D amplifier channels, an Ethernet switch and built in DSP (EQ, FIR, delay and gain). Indoor and outdoor (IP66) versions are available. Each amplifier has an individual Dante input allowing for simple zoning and future changes.
Dante Input / Output (DIO)
The DIO offers an impressive range of tools and converters. It boasts a 2 port Ethernet switch (1x 1Gb Copper and 1x SFP cage), Dante audio, AES Input and Output, Mic Input, Line Input, Line Output, Headphone Output with external volume control and 2 x GPIO. The DIO is powered by PoE (Power over Ethernet) or runs via an external PSU. Redundancy is provided between both power sources.
Zone Controller – The Dante™ Source Selector
Zone Controller can integrate into any digital PA system and control all NAMs and DIOs via a simple GUI on mobiles, tablets and desktops. Additionally, it can be installed to work with all existing analogue PA systems giving them the same easy-to-use interface as the newest digital PA. Users can adjust volumes, select sources, mute and maintain the offsets between multiple speakers and zones. It is possible to have unlimited controllers and sources, up to 20 zones and up to 100 devices per controller.
