PLASA 2012: Duran Audio adds Optocore interface

4 September 2012

UK - Once again Duran Audio will be exhibiting at the PLASA Show. New for PLASA 2012 will be the Optocore DM1 interface. The DM1-TP is designed to provide SANE connectivity to powered Duran Audio loudspeakers, allowing for seamless integration of the company's loudspeakers into synchronous, low latency, redundant Optocore and SANE networks. Offering a non-proprietary open standard transport platform SANE is the first fully synchronous Cat 5 network solution for streaming and transmitting data in real time.

In addition to the synchronous, low latency digital audio distribution, DM1-TP will provide the Intellivox range with all the other benefits of SANE, including 100 Mb/s Ethernet audio distribution, dual-redundant ring connections, and interfacing to Optocore FX and TP devices

The introduction of the SANE network will bring significant benefits to system designers, installers and end users. On larger Intellivox installations there will be a significant saving in both the cost of cable and labour, whilst the wealth of additional features will reduce the need for additional processing devices in the system. This once again proves that Intellivox devices not only provide great control of the array's directivity but also the functionality.

Either redundant point-to-point (star) or daisy-chain topologies are supported (point-to-point requiring an Optocore SANE capable device for a connection to each DM1-TP equipped Intellivox); redundant option offers automatic switch-over to the secondary port in case of failure of the primary port. Daisy-chain with loop-end closing offers a redundant ring topology (with no third party switching required). Other features include low-jitter word clock distribution using standard Optocore solutions and automatic master clock negotiation.

DM1 firmware and internal logic updates over Ethernet are supported, as is standard Intellivox RS-485 interface, while system control and monitoring by AXYS WinControl takes place over a SANE serial bridge, with 8 or 16 digital audio channels routable to the DSP in the Intellivox.

Other peripherals include external fan control output for connection to the Intellivox 'rain-hood', while an Ambient Noise Sensing microphone signal can be routed to the SANE network.

You can find AXYS by Duran Audio on Stand G4 in Earl's Court 1. On the booth will be AXYS products for a wide range of applications, anything from road tunnels to concert halls.

The AXYS demo room will be in the Westminster Suite which is accessible from the lifts in the lobby of Earls Court 1.In the demo room will be products from the Flex, Scope, Target and Beam Shaping Subwoofer ranges. In addition to this there will be some Intellivox 180 and V90 products available for visitors to listen to.
