At InfoComm: Bose Professional Expands ControlSpace Line - ProSoundNetwork.com
ControlSpace line gets bulked out with a half-dozen new DSP models and more.

Las Vegas, NV (June 7, 2018)—At InfoComm, Bose Professional announced that six new DSP models and three digital wall controllers have been added to its ControlSpace line.

The new ControlSpace CSP-1248 and CSP-428 commercial sound processors offer I/O and simplified configuration for small-to-medium-scale projects. Intended to operate as standalone DSPs in commercial applications, they include balanced analog I/O, RCA inputs, eight GPIs, one GPO, a mute contact, RS-232 serial, Ethernet network (for configuration or wall control) and Bose AmpLink out.

Using an integrated webserver with browser-based control software, users can set up workflows on the new ControlSpace CSP models, using a web browser to access the CSP configuration page. This real-time interface features live metering and can be used for tasks such as setting sources, paging thresholds, adjusting EQs and tuning limiters.

The new CSP models include Bose-proprietary algorithms, configurable using the control software, like AutoVolume compensation, which continuously adapts zone output level based on the ambient noise of that room (when paired with the new Bose ANC sense microphone accessory) to maintain consistent program material. Other algorithms include SmartBass dynamic equalization, which enhances the low-frequency output of small loudspeakers; opti-voice paging, which provides a transition between the music and page signals; and opti-source level management, which monitors the input level of up to four sources.

Bose has also updated two ControlSpace ESP fixed-I/O engineered sound processors with the ESP-1240A, 1240AD, 880A and 880AD. These new variants of the Bose ESP-1240 and ESP-880 models have been upgraded to include options for Dante audio networking and Bose AmpLink connectivity.

New ESP-1240A and ESP-880A engineered sound processors have 12x4 and 8x8 analog I/O, respectively, with integrated Bose AmpLink output for digital connections over Cat 5 to Bose AmpLink-equipped Bose amplifiers. The new ESP-1240AD and ESP-880AD versions have both AmpLink and 32x32 Dante onboard. All four ESP models use ControlSpace Designer software for configuration, control and monitoring, and support scalable networked audio systems.

To complement both the new ControlSpace CSP and ESP processors, Bose has also introduced three new user-friendly digital wall controllers: the CC-1D, CC-2D and CC-3D. Each model comes in white and is available in regional variants. They feature a single rotary encoder and circular LED ring. The CC-2D and CC-3D models allow the rotary encoder to be pushed for A/B or A/B/C/D source selection with LED source indicators on the panel.
