[NAMM] ElectroVoice DC-One
Electro-Voice introduces its DC-One digital loudspeaker system controller at NAMM 2009, Booth 6569.
The Electro-Voice DC-One digital loudspeaker based on a two-in-six topology, and designed primarily for users of small- to medium-sized sound systems in both mobile and installed applications. While the unit is a development based on aSHARC processor, it is compatible with all settings from other Electro-Voice signal processors, including the Dx38—the best choice for achieving maximum performance with an EV loudspeaker system.
Though free PC-Editor software is available, the DC-One can be operated via the front panel. Direct access buttons, six predefined configuration modes (one being free configuration), straightforward output delay settings, and true professional metering all allow for safe operation.
DC-One’s “front-panel-access-control” allows the user to select a personal library of accessible presets (out of 60 factory and 20 user presets). In addition, the user can determine which individual parameters in each preset are locked (e.g. factory predefined output parameters) or editable (e.g. master EQ or delay settings).
The DC-One has a 1U 19-inch chassis that is deep enough to match typical amplifier depths, a front panel USB connector for the PC-Editor, and accepts either analogue or digital (AES-EBU) input signals; a 6-dB input pad is available. The RS232 on the rear also provides eight contact closures for preset changes, or allows two units to be linked for larger systems. The PC-Editor software, as well as firmware updates allowing additional functions, will be available on www.electrovoice.com
