Permanent dLive

Allen & Heath has signalled an increased focus on installed sound by deepening the integration of its dLive digital mixing systems into multi-purpose venues. A raft of new releases, control options and expanders adds to the dLive ecosystem to create a distributed, integrated, scalable and accessible solution, handling every aspect of a venue’s audio world from simple boardroom tasks to a full scale live show.

A new dLive MixRack targeted at distributed audio scenarios, the DM0, has been added to the family. DM0 is a 4U mix engine, housing Allen & Heath’s XCVI FPGA Core and providing enough processing power for 128 channels and 64 buses at 96kHz with a latency of just <0.7ms. It interfaces to audio networks via three 128ch I/O ports, accepting cards for all major audio networking protocols, including Dante and AES67.

Other new products include a new DX Link I/O card and DX Hub ½ rack unit, which now enable a dLive system to connect up to 48 audio IO devices, located up to 100m apart to meet the needs of the largest venues. The new DX168 stage box/expander facilitated local in/out.

Remote control options have been extended with the introduction of the programmable IP1 wall plate remote control, giving non-technical users control over functions such as music source selection, level control, or pre-set recall. IP1, IP6 and IP8 remote controllers can be added to a dLive system via standard TCP/IP networks for multi-user, multi-point control architecture over wired or wireless networks

DM0, DX Hub and DX168 will retail for $8,999, 1,399 and $2,999 respectively. Allen & Heath is distributed in Australia by Technical Audio Group, 43-53 Bridge Road, STANMORE NSW 2048. Ph. (02) 9519 0900.
