Farmingdale, NY (June 1, 2015)—Blue Sky has launched its new Audio Management Controller (AMC), designed to work with all studio monitor systems.
Building on Blue Sky’s previous-generation Bass Management Controller, the AMC adds many new capabilities, including centralized control over levels, balance, mute, selection of house curves, and various other system configuration settings. The new product is an eight-channel DSP-based system, and each channel features 1/3-octave EQ, eight bands of filters and parametric EQ (ten bands of parametric EQ on the bass channel), and variable delay for time alignment.
Integrating with Blue Sky’s Speaker Room Optimization (SRO) auto-alignment system in conjunction with bundled Windows software, AMC’s other features include eight system presets (EQ curves, etc.), lip-sync delay, 7.1 bass management with variable cutoff frequency per channel, and an externally-accessible mute input.
Blue Sky’s AMC is physically comprised of two components: a single-rack-space DSP module, and a 7.75-inch square remote panel equipped with a big, weighted “old-school” rotary control for primary adjustments, backlit function and preset buttons, and a large display screen.
Any input on the AMC can be routed to any output, and multiple inputs can be mixed and routed to any outputs. Digital inputs have a built-in sample rate converter, which can be bypassed in pure-digital mode for 48kHz/96kHz operation. The digital I/O is AES/EBU 110-ohm balanced transformer coupled, while analog I/O is balanced and nominal input levels are selectable between +4dBu and -6dBu.
