Creston begins shipping its line of Avia DSPs
Crestron has begun shipping its complete line of new Avia DSPs. Consisting of five models, Avia DSPs streamline audio programming, commissioning, and expansion in meeting rooms and video conference rooms.
The top of the line Avia DSP-1283 (shipping January 2017) is engineered for use in state-of-the-art meeting spaces and collaboration environments. It provides high-performance AEC that meets professional standards on all 12 channels.
DSP-1283 supports audio conferencing via VoIP and POTS, and USB connectivity for video conferencing via a Crestron RL®2 Skype® for Business solution, or BYOD presentation using Crestron AirMedia® wireless gateway. I/O expansion with amplifiers and DigitalMedia™ blade-based switchers is supported via the Dante™ audio network.
Additional models include DSP-1282, DSP-1281, DSP-1280, and DSP-860. All models leverage the Avia Audio Tool for audio design and programming.
“The Avia platform delivers a new level of performance and simplicity for audio professionals”, has said Dennis Fink, Audio Technology Manager at Crestron. “Programming, tuning, and expanding meeting room audio is actually easy with the Avia Audio Tool, which is loaded with powerful built-in tools, including channel strips with microphone and speaker profile presets, a real-time analyser and an exceptional echo canceller. Plus, audio controls and even VUs can be exported to touch screens in a small fraction of the time it used to take”.
The unique channel-strip architecture simplifies configuration, with a library of preconfigured strips for the most popular microphones and Crestron speakers. Built-in tools include a real-time analyser (RTA), virtual mixer, EQ editor, and state-of-the-art AEC processor.
Avia DSPs connect directly to Crestron touch screens without a central control system. There’s no code to write or GUIs to design. Just drag and drop channel strip objects for control and to generate a touch screen UI, including VU meters for visual confirmation that audio is passing through the system without needing special test equipment.
The new DSPs are a part of the new Crestron suite of Avia Audio Solutions, which also includes a companion line of network-controlled and monitored multichannel amplifiers.
