Lectrosonics Launches Conferencing Processor

Lectrosonics is expanding its Aspen Series of DSP matrix audio processors this week at InfoComm 2010. The Aspen Series features TCP/IP control over Ethernet, unlimited input expandability, a real-time clock, 48-channel matrix bus, 1 Gbps expansion port, and true 48V phantom power for all inputs.

Lectrosonics is expanding its Aspen Series of DSP matrix audio processors this week at InfoComm 2010. The Aspen Series features TCP/IP control over Ethernet, unlimited input expandability, a real-time clock, 48-channel matrix bus, 1 Gbps expansion port, and true 48V phantom power for all inputs.

New models debuting this week include the SPN2412, SPN1612, and SPN812 matrix processors, as well as the SPNTrio teleconferencing processor. All units are RoHS-compliant, according to the company, and employ the Aspen port with 1 Gbps throughput capability for audio and control data on a single Cat-6 line.

Lectrosonics' new SPNTrio combines a matrix mixer with a telephone hybrid and a two-channel power amp for an all-in-one conferencing solution. With two codecs and one line input, eight mic/line inputs, eight line outputs, and four mic/line outputs, the SPNTrio offers a wide range of connection possibilities. The 1 Gbps Aspen port facilitates unlimited input expansion, and control via Ethernet, RS-232, or programmable inputs makes designing around the Trio easy, the company says.

"These four new devices in the ASPEN line round out the series and provide exceptional tools for designers and installers of conferencing sound systems," says Karl Winkler, Lectrosonics' director of business development, in a statement. "The Trio, in particular, will be an ideal single-box solution for smaller installations such as conference rooms in a law office or smaller courtroom."

At the heart of the Aspen system is Lectrosonics' proprietary Proportional Gain Algorithm (PGA) for auto-mixing without the use of noise gates, resulting in transparent audio and increased gain before feedback. Five mixing modes are individually selectable for every matrix cross point.

According to Lectrosonics, the new Aspen Series processors will sell for $4,000 SPN812), $6,500 (SPN1612), $7,085 (SPN2412), and $6,500 (SPNTrio). They will be available in the third quarter.
