Audio System Requirements

  1. 4 zones, each with stereo BGM (background music) and wall panel controllers for source selection/volume control.
  2. Support for mobile device control of source selection/volume control in each zone.
  3. 2 remotely located page microphones connected to a single DSP processor via a Dante™ network.
  4. Page zone selection using a 4-button wall panel at each page station location.
  5. Programmable automatic page over music “ducking” of BGM in all zones.
  6. Ambient noise controlled automatic music volume adjustment in each zone.
  7. Secure super-user Windows® control screen located in the managers office.
  8. Audio system MUTE ALL function triggered from a fire/emergency alarm system.
  9. Comprehensive loudspeaker management in all four zones to include parametric EQ, high and low pass 48dB/octave filter, comp/liming, delay and mute.
