Bose® Professional expands its range of Dante™- enabled ControlSpace® offerings with several new Dante endpoints and a new fixed-I/O DSP, providing integrators more options for creating cost-effective installed audio solutions using Dante, a digital audio network technology from Audinate. The new ControlSpace products – ESP-1600 engineered sound processor; EP22-D and EP40-D endpoints; and WP22B-D and WP22BU-D wall plates – were designed for a wide range of installations that benefit from Dante connectivity, including worship facilities, education, conference centers, hotel meeting and ballrooms, sporting and live performance venues and others.
ControlSpace ESP-1600 engineered sound processor
The ControlSpace ESP-1600 extends the line of Bose fixed-I/O engineered sound processors with a new model designed for up to 16 analog inputs. The ESP-1600 features a built-in ESPLink output for sending eight digital audio channels to one or more PowerMatch® amplifiers and when combined with a Dante card, the ESP-1600 becomes a powerful, high-quality and cost effective input processor (e.g. stage box) for Dante network distribution.
ControlSpace Dante Endpoints
ControlSpace Dante endpoints, including the EP22-D 2-in/2-out Dante endpoint, EP40-D 4-input Dante endpoint, WP22B-D 2-in/2-out Dante wall plate and WP22BU-D 2-in/2-out Dante wall plate, complement Bose ControlSpace ESP products and PowerMatch lines and share configuration and control using ControlSpace Designer™ software. ControlSpace Dante endpoints, combined with ControlSpace ESP products and PowerMatch amplifiers, allow installers to create Dante-enabled systems of nearly any size, in either new installations or when retrofitting existing systems. Available in wall-box and rack/wall-mount versions enabling installation in various locations (surface, table, shelf, rack), Bose ControlSpace Dante endpoints are convenient and cost-effective for connecting analog devices like microphones and mixer amps.
With ControlSpace ESP engineered sound processors and ControlSpace Dante endpoints, system integrators can:
• More easily create Dante solutions for new and retrofit installed audio applications
• Configure complete Dante networks from within ControlSpace Designer software including control, monitoring and audio routing
• Utilize ControlSpace Dante endpoints with PoE anywhere analog devices need to be converted to Dante – minimizing analog cabling and taking advantage of existing network cable
• Provide control over small or large systems via recallable Dante subscriptions using ControlSpace Designer software
To complement these new products, ControlSpace Designer software has been updated to version 4.2 to support the ControlSpace Dante endpoints and the ESP-1600 processor.
Darryl Bryans, Bose Professional Product Line Manager, DSP, stated, “With the introduction of the ControlSpace ESP-1600 and the four ControlSpace Dante endpoints, we have greatly expanded our line of Dante products, providing integrators more options for creating cost-effective installed audio solutions using Dante. The ESP-1600’s integrated 8-channel ESPLink digital audio link connects directly to our PowerMatch amplifiers and with, or without the optional Dante card, is perfect for cost-sensitive applications with many input sources where two DSPs are often needed. And our new ControlSpace Dante endpoints, with control and routing integrated in ControlSpace Designer, are perfect for all those locations where is it much more cost-effective and efficient to install an endpoint near the audio source and simply run a CAT-5 cable back to the equipment closet, or tap into the venue’s existing network.”
