Among these are offline manipulation of settings such as Gain, Polarity, Delay, Sum, Average, Merge and many others.
In the realm of training and development, Powersoft will also offer a Renewal Unit (RU)-granting course entitled “How to Optimize Fixed Install Design Using DSP in Class D Amplifiers,” which is available for pre-registration now by visiting this registration link.
The Powersoft InfoComm booth provides a valuable opportunity for industry professionals to gain insight on the forward-thinking features of Powersoft products. This year, four dedicated zones, dedicated to Amplifier Modules, M-Force, Installation, and Deva, will surround a hospitality and bar area.
Powersoft will conduct face-to-face sessions at two demo areas at the booth: one of which will be designated for OEM products and the other for installation lines. Staff-led demonstrations will offer training in some of the remote control capabilities of Armonía Pro Audio Suite in installation settings, including Quattrocanali remote GPI/VCA with small speakers, the X series web app, and 3rd party remote control with QSC, Crestron, and Xilica speakers. OEM-directed demos will delve into the Armonia ProManager software, touching upon installation processes, creation of custom models, and integration with Armonía.
Quattrocanali, MiniMod 4, and LiteMod 4HC Hit the US
Powersoft’s Quattrocanali 4-channel Class D amplifiers will be making their U.S. debut at this year’s InfoComm booth. Delivering the crystal-clear sound and remarkable efficiency that Powersoft is known for in a single rack space unit, the Quattrocanali provides installation designers with an exciting new option for any install where space comes at a premium but top-notch performance is a requirement. Three models will be available ranging from 300-1200 watts per channel and rounding out Powersoft’s 2-channel Duecanali and 8-channel Ottocanali offerings.
The MiniMod 4 and LiteMod 4HC modules will also be making their US debut. MiniMod 4 is an integrated module offering universal mains switching mode power supply with Power Factor Correction and a total of 600W of audio amplification. Configurable as four, three, two channels, or a single high power output channel, it is a versatile and compact solution for low power applications.
Like the MiniMod 4, LiteMod 4HC is a versatile module packing an impressive 2400 watts of power across four output stages while remaining incredibly compact. It can be configured for four, three, two, or single-channel output and both 2Ω as well as 8Ω operation and is perfect for high channel count applications, three- and two-way systems, subwoofers and satellite systems.
New Deva App
Powersoft will also introduce the new DEVA App, which allows unprecedented control of Deva multimedia units. Through an iPad, attendees can interact with units programmed for Infotainment, Entertainment and Safety services. Attendees will be guided through using the app to monitor individual DEVA units in a zone, access zone details, and perform actions such as playback, all remotely.
“We are excited to have the US debut of some of our latest offerings for the Installation and OEM sectors take place at InfoComm 2017 this year,” says Francesco Fannichi, Brand and Communication Director, Powersoft. “Quattrocanali completes our oft-specified series of efficient, powerful, and great-sounding amplifiers for install applications in an elegantly compact package, while our new MiniMod 4 and LiteMod 4HC OEM modules enable exciting possibilities for powered speaker design. We are also excited to continue our tradition of providing high-value training opportunities for InfoComm attendees with both our credited training session and booth demonstration programs.”
