Integration

A media control system can manage audio, video and lighting from one control unit and typically consists of a control unit and at least one user interface such as a touch panel. Media control modules are comparable to templates. Designed to reduce the programming effort, the integrator can concentrate on the needs of the user. d&b audiotechnik has collaborated with media control manufacturers and other solution providers to offer control modules. The modules can be downloaded below.

QSC Q-SYS™

QSC Q-SYS™

The d&b plug-in module for QSC Q-SYS enables the full integration of d&b amplifiers into the control domain of a Q-SYS DSP network. Amongst others the d&b Q-SYS plug-in module provides control of d&b amplifier parameters such as Gain, Mute, Preset Recall and Power On/Off. It also reads several types of status information from the amplifiers like Input and Output Signal Monitoring, Metering, Power Ok, Amplifier Status and others. Within the Q-SYS Designer software environment these controls can be connected to Q-SYS control components and indicators enabling full system control and status monitoring on any QSC control device or through any Q-SYS control interface.

The d&b amplifier plug-in for MediaMatrix provides control parameters to adjust the mute status, levels, power On/Off, and alter the AmpPreset. This enables the complete system to be configured as a highly intelligible system for speech reproduction, and, via a simple button, reconfigured for full program material. Critical status information can be monitored, ensuring the same is suitable as a PA-VA system in an emergency situation. MediaMatrix logs all audio connections to amplifiers, and the operating state of connected loudspeakers.

MediaMatrix is a networked DSP and control system that is scalable, efficient and exactly tailored to the needs of the user. Integration with MediaMatrix allows system designers to achieve high performance d&b sound quality in installation applications that require detailed, customized remote control features. The complete system is designed and managed via PC with the MediaMatrix NWare software, and then accessed and controlled wirelessly with any smart device supporting HTML5 via the Kiosk2Go remote control platform. The system can also be controlled using wall panels, touch screen devices and GPIOs.

IEC 60849 'Sound Systems for Emergency Purposes' applications

IEC 60849 'Sound Systems for Emergency Purposes' applications

For incorporation within applications specified to the requirements stated in the International Standard IEC 60849 Sound Systems for Emergency Purposes, a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) can be integrated into the d&b Remote network. It can report faults and set the d&b system into a defined alarm status. Input channel, equalization, volume, delay and filters are adjusted. For this purpose the respective AmpPresets of the d&b D6 and D12 amplifiers are used. When the alarm ceases the original settings for the d&b system can be recalled. A PLC can run as the primary master and the R1 remote control can be configured as the secondary master. In this configuration the PLC commands will override the R1 remote control software.
