APart ramps up processing possibilities with AudioControl12.8
APart’s recently launched AudioControl12.8 audio matrix offers a combination of audio and control processing in addition to ‘endless’ paging possibilities. Key to its appeal is an integrated real time task scheduler that assumes responsibility over a variety of tasks, reportedly making the AudioControl12.8 suited to a wide range of projects.
Up to 120 addressable/programmable paging microphones/extenders can be connected, each with their own functionality and individual presets, in addition to up to eight priority levels. The unit also has 12 audio inputs and eight audio outputs, plus additional SPDIF-input and output options.
DIMIC1/DIMIC12 and DIMIC12S digital paging stations can be configured via the host’s graphical installer interface. Where DIMIC1 is an all call paging station, DIMIC12 is a zone and multipurpose paging desk. All buttons can be programmed, and a user can connect up to seven DIMIC12S expansion units.
Meanwhile, the DIWAC wall mount controller has been designed to control AudioControl12.8, and is programmable via the host unit’s graphical installer interface to allocate the necessary functionalities.
Another product designed to complement the AudioControl12.8 is the GII (Graphical Installer Interface). Via the GII, a user can program the controller to trigger macros and even control third party devices. Optimised to be an installer-friendly device, the manufacturer states that it is possible for every integrator to configure their required solution.
Meanwhile, APart has also recently introduced a humidity-resistant version of its in-wall speaker named the CM5EH. Suitable for background music distribution in bathrooms, kitchens, and a range of other humid zones, the new version’s main differences can be found in its cone and plastic grille material.
Designed for easy installation due to two hidden spring loaded clamps, the loudspeaker has a 100V speaker line transformer as well as a direct 8-ohms connection, allowing a user to connect up to two speakers in parallel per 4-ohm stable amplifier channel.
