Las Vegas, NV (April 28, 2006)–Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. brings more power and system design flexibility to its DME series processor line with the NAB introduction of the DME Satellite Series. Engineered for designs and facilities requiring a distributed DSP system, the Yamaha DME Satellite Series includes the DME8i-C (8 analog inputs), DME8o-C (8 analog outputs) and DME4io-C (4 analog inputs/4 analog outputs), all available Q3 of 2006.
Each processor is housed in a low profile, single rack space unit, and is capable of producing 80 percent of the DSP power of the fully featured Yamaha DME24N. Each unit has been designed for maximum flexibility, and includes Ethernet connections, USB and RS422 control ports, an 8 in/4 out GPI port, plus primary and redundant CobraNet ports.
“Our research has shown that many of today’s installed systems require distributed processing, due to remote equipment locations, and as a means of preventing single points of failure,” stated Marc Lopez, product manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “The DME Satellite Series will provide more than adequate processing power for those systems, and give integrators even more options to create powerful, cost-effective system solutions.”
DME Designer V2.0, a software upgrade based specifically on the needs of contractors, will also be available with the release of the DME Satellite Series. The upgrade-compatible with current DME products, DME Satellite and Yamaha SP2060 processors-will provide programming and control for all units, and feedback suppression for models DME24N and DME64N.
