The new multifunctional P1 AVB processor and measurement platform from L-Acoustics shipping now, is one of the first products developed to be fully compliant with Avnu’s Milan protocol requirements, which were announced June 5 at InfoComm 2018. Milan compliancy has also been added into L-Acoustics Avnu-certified LA4X and LA12X amplified controllers.
The P1 processor is a three-in-one unit that serves as a front-end processor, an audio matrix and bridge, as well as a system measurement and tuning platform, all in one convenient, robust package. The P1 takes the complex and hardware-intensive task of system optimization and streamlines it to a single piece of hardware, fully integrated with the industry-leading LA Network Manager software platform.
As a signal processor with equalization, delay and dynamics, its four analog line inputs with premium A/D conversion assure the utmost sound quality. Integrating 20 inputs and 16 outputs in one rack space, the P1 can matrix, bridge and distribute AVB, AES/EBU and analog audio. Time-aligned redundant signal distribution guarantees artifact-free sound with the click of a button. Exceptional demand shown by early orders indicates that the marketplace recognizes the current and future value that P1 will add to the L-Acoustics toolkit.
Updates to LA Network Manager will leverage P1’s four microphone preamps to create an analyzer that is aware of all system parameters. This technology enables system tuning without additional noise.
Here are the details.
