Powersoft Unveils its Ottocanali Series Amplifiers, with Unprecedented DSP Control, Massive Output, and Sound Shaping Options
Audio manufacturer Powersoft (InfoComm booth 115) announces the expansion of the successful Ottocanali Series, with the addition of three new high-performance 8-channel power amplifiers — under the series Ottocanali DSP+D. The Ottocanali Series DSP+D offers a wide range of system control and monitoring functions as well as sound shaping options, a total of up to 12,000 W output power at 4 ohms over 8 channels for lo-Z or distributed line systems — all neatly packed into a double rack unit.
As with former versions of Ottocanali, the new DSP+D versions feature switchable main and aux signal inputs per channel, adequate GPIO, alarms, Lo-Z and Hi-Z output connections as well as mono-bridgeable channel pairs. These 2 RU models implement two redundant universal switch mode power supplies with PFC (Power Factor Correction) and patented SRM (Smart Rails Management) technology that maximize the efficiency of the system, while drastically reducing power consumption.
With two redundant Dante™ by Audinate® digital streams, the Ottocanali 4K4 DSP+D, Ottocanali 8K4 DSP+D and Ottocanali 12K4 DSP+D will fit any venue as ‘stand-alone’ unit, making it ideal for multi-zone applications in mid to large-scale installs.
Excellent sound quality and ample output power stem from Powersoft’s unique approach to Class D amplification and DSP technology, making the Ottocanali Series DSP+D the ideal main system in any venue where performance is priority.
Powersoft’s legendary efficiency saves valuable energy, keeping both operational cost and ‘carbon footprint’ at a minimum: the new Ottocanali Series shines with outstandingly low power consumption and heat dissipation; this dramatically reduces costs from the AC mains supply and air conditioning/cooling systems – not to mention the benefits to the environment for a greener planet.
Seamless DSP amplifier integration
The DSP features of the Ottocanali DSP+D make these amplifiers ideal to seamlessly integrate into any installed sound or touring environment. In just two rack unit spaces, the design features a fully configurable input / output non-boolean matrix, with state of the art DSP. Also, since the Ottocanali DSP+D features dual redundant power supplies — an industry first — the system is able to offer greater reliability once installed. This provides reassurance in the event of a power failure or service interruption.
The new Ottocanali DSP+D system is fully compatible with Powersoft’s innovative Armonia Pro Audio Suite™, making it easy to facilitate online or offline system set up and tuning. The Armonia platform also enables users to quickly and conveniently manipulate advanced DSP features of the system, such matrix / speaker routing and redundancy priorities, while managing and monitoring all vital functions in real-time from a remote PC via a single intuitive GUI.
