Modern installed audio applications require a flexible digital audio processor with user-friendly features, such as user-configurable DSP and routing options, multiple inputs and outputs – and built in audio networking. Designed for installed use in corporate environments, hospitality venues and more, the DM8500 provides 128 channels of Dante digital audio networking for easy integration with other equipment. The highly versatile DM8500 seamlessly integrates with computer based conferencing systems using embedded USB, and can control and monitor external devices using built-in Ethernet and RS232 ports.
At the heart of the DM8500 is an advanced digital audio processor, with the power and versatility to handle even the most challenging application. Designed around an open architecture format, system integrators can easily configure the DM8500 to meet the requirements of any customer – and create systems that are eminently expandable, and virtually future-proof.
Acoustic Echo Cancellation
Office spaces, boardrooms and conference centers are often constructed with only a passing consideration regarding acoustics. Surfaces are typically hard, such as glass, painted walls, and even steel and stone, all of which can trigger reverberation and echoes that can make a teleconference less than optimal. The DM8500 uses its wide band AEC module to detect and eliminate secondary room reflections from the signal path, so all participants enjoy the highest quality sound – whether the content is speech, music, or multimedia.
Applications such as meetings, conference calls and courtrooms require the use of multiple open microphones, which means special attention must be given to input gain setting and feedback elimination. Or, you can let the DM8500 Auto Mixer and Feedback Suppressor modules do the heavy lifting for you. Easy to set up and use, DM8500 Auto Mixer modules automatically adjust and balance levels for multiple inputs and combine them into a single output. The onboard Feedback Suppressor behaves much like a highly-surgical parametric equaliser, detecting and removing feedback frequencies before they can become an issue.
