AudiaFusion brings together open-architecture DSP, multichannel amplifier technology and device-monitoring and load-monitoring capabilities
Biamp Systems is shipping the newest member of the Audia family, AudiaFusion, which is CobraNet-enabled to allow decentralised system configuration and ‘freedom from the rack’. AudiaFusion brings together open-architecture DSP, multichannel amplifier technology and device-monitoring and load-monitoring capabilities. It features an eight-channel modular amplifier, 16x16 I/O via CobraNet and DSP with optional amplifier channel-to-amplifier channel and device-to-device failover. The new device can support up to eight amplifier cards that are individually software configurable from 100W to 600W for up to 2.4kW of power, with software-selectable 70V, 100V and low-impedance outputs per card.
PC software allows the selection, viewing and calibration of mixers, combiners, matrixes, equalisers, filters, crossovers, dynamics, routers, delays, meters, generators and diagnostic tools. Once a system design is compiled, it is downloaded into AudiaFusion, where it can be controlled via AMX, Crestron or other third-party control systems, or via a computer running daVinci control software. Integrated monitoring capabilities can locate device or channel faults, while providing support for channel-to-channel failures. When AudiaFusion is installed into an AudiaFlex system, the processors allocate resources as needed, making the entire system more efficient and flexible. Additionally, when components are placed close to speakers, labour costs and the need to run long speaker wires or cables are reduced.
