From a straightforward system design with one speaker through to configurations involving many speakers, digital PA provides an easy to use audio system with leading edge technology that is effortlessly customised and completely networkable.
Basic digital PA systems can be configured for many different settings and are suitable for corporate offices, retail outlets, pubs, clubs, churches, schools and more.
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.
Suitable for larger areas and across multiple sites. These systems include; audio prioritisation, DSP and the ability to incorporate paging stations. With other features such as ambient noise control, these systems are designed to handle any challenge with ease.
Matrix and Paging digital PA systems work at their best for large public areas (such as Sydney’s Darling Harbour precinct), transport hubs (train stations, airports, bus terminals etc), casinos and other large public venues. These systems also work for multi-site applications across any IT network near or far.
The Compact Frame allows for smaller scale systems with a set input/output. They offer a fully summing audio matrix with broadcast quality audio. These frames allow remote configuration over the network, have redundant power supplies and are expandable by up to 64 Dante channels.
The MF4 series is a modular system with each frame having the capacity to run up to 256 zones. The MF4 includes redundant power supplies and supports analogue, AES, Dante and MADI as well as GPI/O and an API.
The multi-purpose digitalPA Paging Panels are used for making announcements, listening to audio as well as logic control and offer a fully functional intercom system. Desktop panels and rackmount panels are available.
