In an effort to help custom installers break into the light commercial market, BlackWire Designs, a distributor, recently announced that the company is offering Yamaha’s CIS line of audio products for small- to medium-sized commercial installs. For Yamaha installations with mixed AV control, BlackWire is also offering an exclusive, newly released driver that integrates MTX series units with Control4 automation systems.
BlackWire’s new MTX series driver for the Yamaha CIS line will allow for matrix audio control of the MTX3 and MTX5-D audio mixers. In addition, BlackWire is working on developing a driver to integrate with the URC automation platform. Backed by BlackWire’s unmatched technical support, the speakers, mixer amplifiers, audio mixers and power amplifiers allow dealers to provide complete audio systems that are reliable, cost-effective and simple to deploy in restaurants, bars, offices and more.
BlackWire’s line of Yamaha’s CIS audio solutions include:
- VXC ceiling and VXS surface-mount series speakers, which combine premium sound quality with features for fast and safe installation.
- MA series mixer amplifiers, 1-RU solutions that combine two stereo inputs and up to six microphone inputs with DSP functions, such as feedback suppression and a priority ducker.
- MTX series of audio mixers that support up to 16 zones and combine DSP functionality with built-in mixing capabilities. For simple system expansion, the mixers feature Yamaha’s YDIF digital audio transfer protocol, which allows for eight additional channels over a single Cat 6 cable, while Dante-equipped models add an additional 16 channels.
