Powersoft Now Offers Dynamic Routing Embedded Within Fixed Install Amplifier Platforms
Powersoft is now able to offer system integrators the ability to scale inputs and zones with the dynamic routing capabilities embedded on its fixed install amplifier platforms. According to the company, this ability makes it easier to share variable music sources locally and/or between different zones in small- / medium-sized venues, independently from the source location; all without the need of a centralized DSP. With dynamic routing, all inputs can be shared over the network as Dante signal. And, new user interfaces (UI) will allow integrators to control the system in background and foreground dynamic music distribution applications; an ability that is particularly useful in verticals such as bar and restaurant, hospitality, retail and fitness.
Powersoft’s suite of hardware, software, and additional tools, such as the soon-to-be-launched WM Touch, can all be targeted at specific applications, providing an intuitive system and low learning curve.
Powersoft amplifier platforms allow SIs to replace most of the outboard required to manage, shape and share audio sources throughout the various zones in a variety of dynamic music distribution applications by merging a routing matrix, networking capabilities and digital signal processing between multiple amplifiers in different locations.
The dynamic routing capability on Powersoft amplifiers enables routing options of audio signals — whether mono, stereo or multichannel between devices — and controls signals in an automated fashion, with less cable runs.
SIs using Powersoft systems can handle signal routing, volume control and mute, zoning and scene selection through a series of dedicated UIs: the Wall Mount Passive and the brand-new Wall Mount Touch, a web-based UI and the SYS control App.
Powersoft’s ArmoníaPlus system design tool relies on an object-based approach that enables integrators to configure the routing of sources and zones. It also enables the creation of different system configurations to be recalled, as well as to configure UI system controls with a pre-defined layout that doesn’t require any programming, or to create custom ones.
The software can be used as a configuration tool allowing the users to operate the system by using local control devices only.
Small- / medium-sized, multi-zone dynamic music distribution systems that don’t specifically require paging or ducking features can benefit greatly from a combination of a WM Touch UI and Powersoft’s install amps, such as the ultra-compact Mezzo.
