By PSW Staff • March 20, 2009 Bosch Communications Systems has just announced the release of IRIS-Net V2.0, a unified software package supporting DSP design, device control, custom user interface creation, and system integration spanning multiple Bosch Communications Systems brands. IRIS-Net V2.0 continues to expand IRIS-Net’s array of features by adding new devices such as Electro-Voice REV wireless microphones. IRIS-Net V2.0 also brings EV’s FIR-Drive technology to the fore. FIR-Drive combines transducer development, FIR processing, and optimized DSP protection algorithms to create a holistic approach to system development. IRIS-Net V2.0 provides additional FIR-Drive controllers, a new peak anticipation limiter, and brand-new loudspeaker settings for EV concert sound products. The latest version of IRIS-Net also includes the following features and additions: Software Additions and Enhancements Enhanced software installation process for improved compatibility with Windows Vista. Selection of brands and/or devices possible via new Device Options dialog (Dialog is automatically shown when IRIS-Net is started the first time). Support of .PNG and .JPEG file formats for use in Controls, User Controls and project graphics. A completely restructured Help System now formatted as a User Manual in PDF format. Modified Object List for easier use and navigation. NetMax Additions and Enhancements DSP block FIR Controller (mono and stereo version) containing complete DSP structure of an RCM-26 output channel. Use of all current RCM-26 speaker settings is possible. The Electro-Voice N8000 System Controller now also supports the following remote amplifiers when using the RCM-810 remote control module: Electro-Voice CPS series amplifiers (CPS2.4, CPS2.6, CPS2.9, CPS2.12, CPS4.5, CPS4.10 and CPS8.5) DSP block Loudspeaker Controller now uses Peak Anticipation Limiter instead of RCM Limiter. Password protection of DSP blocks possible via context menu. Non-Administrator users are no longer able to edit the DSP structure. Other Hardware Additions and Enhancements New device Electro-Voice REV (UHF wireless microphone system) is available (Currently the REV receivers can only be connected to the PC using a UCC1). Peak Anticipation limiter available for RCM-26 amplifiers (firmware update of RCM-26 to version V1.13 required), fully compatible with existing speaker settings. New Loudspeaker Settings (including FIR filter settings) and files for Electro-Voice and Dynacord loudspeakers (check directory “Speaker Settings/Electro-Voice” or “Speaker Settings/Dynacord” for details).
