Bose enters the conferencing market

Bose has made its first entry into the conferencing space with the ControlSpace EX Audio Conferencing System. The solution comprises the EX-1280C conferencing signal processor alongside the EX-4ML, EX-8ML and EX-UH Dante-based under-table endpoints. 

The creation of the conferencing solution has seen the manufacturer taken input from integrators for the functionality they require. As such the 1U device offers connectivity for various types of audio conferencing, including USB, VoIP, PSTN, analogue, and phone headset audio.

Getting into the nuts and bolts of the system, the processor offers 12 routable acoustic echo cancellers (AEC) with adaptable noise cancellation, non-linear processing and comfort noise. In terms of connectivity, it offers 64 x 64 Dante audio networking as well as 12 mic/line analogue inputs, eight analogue outputs, eight Bose AmpLink digital outputs, USB (stereo in/out), VoIP (two lines) and PSTN. 

Offering open-architecture signal processing, the EX-1280C also features SIP 2.0 compliant VoIP. This includes a web-configurable interface, two independent lines with multiple call appearances, and support for codecs such G.722 HD, G.726 and G.711. Finally, the front panel display offers a 256 x 64 element OLED display and a rotary knob for metering and viewing/changing IP settings. 

Moving on to the other components of the ControlSpace solution, all three of the under-table endpoints feature PoE, daisy-chainable power and networking. The EX-4ML and EX-8ML (4 and 8 channels respectively) under-table microphone interfaces feature 48V phantom power as well as +12V LED power and three logic I/O per channel (one in, two out). The EX-UH meanwhile has been built for BYOD applications. Its built-in 3.5mm TRRS analogue jack, stereo-audio USB, and RJ-9 connector ensure it is possible to connect mobile phones, laptops and telephone headsets.

The whole system can be are configured and controlled with Bose ControlSpace Designer 5.0 software. In addition, ControlSpace Remote 2.1 has been upgraded to support the EX line and now includes a dialler for creating a tablet-based user interface for conference rooms. Drivers for popular control systems are also reportedly available.

As a final touch, and ensuring its more traditional system components are not overlooked, there are presets so Bose’s portfolio of amplifiers and loudspeakers can be integrated with the conferencing solution.
