Launching in the Americas at InfoComm 2010, the new Vari-directional Array from Bosch features digitally-controlled directivity to provide pattern control and distribution for ranges of up to 50 meters.

The system is therefore described as “ideal for counteracting the reverberant effect of hard construction materials typically used in spaces such as airports of houses of worship, while electrical beam steering optimizes coverage without wasting output energy on ceilings or empty spaces above the listening area.”

The Vari-Directional Array’s configuration software uses a database of pre-programmed room settings to fit any acoustical environment; the installer enters the room dimensions and requirements and the software does the rest. It is also possible to customize audio processing and set supervision parameters. All the amplifier and loudspeaker components (including drivers) are supervised, faults are logged and a 24 V DC backup power supply can be connected. The system is also EVAC compliant, making it a good fit for all voice-alarm applications.

The modular-designed product range consists of a base and extension units that can be connected together. The configuration software can automatically detect a connected extension unit, reducing configuration time, the company says. The base unit alone can cover up to 15 meters. The addition of one extension provides coverage of up to 30 meters, and adding two extensions provides coverage of up to 50 meters. A range of applications can be addressed with a few standard components, adding up to less inventory, less hassle and less expense.

The arrays can be wall-mounted using mounting bracket supports that can be turned up to 80° turn possibility, and have front amplifier cooling so flush-mounting in walls is also possible.
