Powersoft to debut amplifiers, a DSP-board and a new control software release

At InfoComm 2012, Las Vegas, Booth #C10431, Powersoft is to debut products for installed and touring sound applications. The booth at InfoComm will be the stage for the american debut of Ottocanali 1204 DSP+ETH, a new version with onboard DSP plus Ethernet-based networking of the eight-channel amplifier; DigiMod 2004PFC, a two-channel amplifier module; and DSP-4, a 1-in/4-out board for use with DigiMod Series amp modules. Powersoft will also demonstrate the improved usability and increased integration with the company's product portfolio using the Armonía Pro Audio Suite version 2.3.0 monitoring and control software release.
The Powersoft Ottocanali 1204 DSP+ETH offers DSP functionality on each of its eight amplifier channels plus Ethernet connectivity managed via Armonía Pro Audio Suite PC software. Generating up to 1,200 W output power across eight channels, each selectable for lo-/hi-Z or constant voltage operation, it supports up to 55 different output configurations. DSP functionality includes dual 24-bit conversion stages with equalizer, limiting and time alignment operations, as well as 24/7 tone supervision capabilities for speaker loads. Ethernet connectivity allows system setup, monitoring and control directly from a PC or over a network connection. Ottocanali meets EnergyStar requirements and is under the final approval process.
Powersoft DigiMod 2004PFC
DigiMod 2004PFC (pictured above) is a two-channel amplifier module representing a solution for powered speakers. Delivering up to 1000W on 4 ohms per channel (2000 W on a single 8-ohm load), the DigiMod 2004PFC reaches new levels of excellence in terms of power consumption, efficiency and sonic performances thanks to a new power supply design, equipped with PFC and featuring Smart Rails Management.
The one-input/four-output DSP-4 board is designed for use in high-end multi-way and line array systems in combination with DigiMod Series amplifier modules. It offers the advanced processing and Ethernet-based digital audio networking capabilities currently available on the company's flagship KDSP Series rack amplifiers. Based on the Analog Devices SHARC chip, the DSP-4 board can also be used with Armonìa Pro Audio Suite software, which provides access to functionality such as Active DampingControl, TruePower limiting and LiveImpedance measurement, and additionally enables networking and remote control via the company's proprietary AESOP protocol. Input processing functionality includes delay, multi-layer EQ, custom dynamic FIR filters, and a complete set of limiters. The four fully processed outputs offer crossovers, extensive multi-layer parametric and custom FIR filter options, and delay.
The feature set of the recent Armonía Pro Audio Suite 2.3.0 release improves both usability and increases integration with the Powersoft product portfolio. This release improves the user experience through an improved single-window GUI. New features include LivingWorkspace, which offers a quick overview of the status of the entire system; a Remote Entities window that provides identification of the networked amplifiers at a glance; integration with the complete range of Powersoft rack amplifiers with the addition of the DSP versions of the M Series and Ottocanali, as well as all Powersoft power modules; and quicker and easier handling of a multi-network interface.
