Bose Professional Systems is making it easier to connect its ControlSpace processors and PowerMatch amplifiers using Dante digital audio networking, with new version 4.1 ControlSpace Designer software allowing users to discover, route and control Dante channels from within the application.
In addition to integrating the core functionality found in Dante Controller software, ControlSpace Designer 4.1 also allows pre-programmed Dante audio routing to be recalled from any of the Bose user controls, or via a connected third-party control system, so that everything from basic source selection to the remapping of entire systems can be activated by end-users.
Dante accessory expansion cards are available for the ControlSpace ESP-00 II engineered sound processor, ControlSpace ESP-880/1240/4120 engineered sound processors, and for the line of PowerMatch configurable professional power amplifiers; in total, 12 devices are Dante-capable. The cards all foster 48 kHz/24-bit digital audio with 16 x 16 channels for ControlSpace processors and 8 x 8 channels for PowerMatch amplifiers.
“With Designer software version 4.1, we continue to expand the capabilities of our processors and amplifiers without sacrificing ease of use,” says Darryl Bryans, Bose DSP product line manager. “By integrating Dante’s automatic device discovery and configuration tools into our ControlSpace Designer software, Bose has taken yet another step toward making it easier for system integrators to create and configure distributed audio systems quickly.”
ControlSpace Designer software version 4.1 will be available September 2, 2014, as a free download at http://pro.Bose.com.
