The DS20 audio network bridge interfaces between Milan networks and AES3 digital audio signals

d&b audiotechnik has released its first product for connecting its loudspeaker systems to the Milan protocol. The DS20 audio network bridge interfaces between Milan networks and AES3 digital audio signals and provides distribution of Ethernet control data. Metadata including Milan channel labels and cabling information is sent via the AES3 channel stream to the four-channel d&b amplifiers.

Positioned in front of the amplifiers within the signal chain, the 1U device is suited to both mobile and installation environments and provides four digital AES3 input channels for applications such as a break-in from an FOH console. It incorporates a fully AVB-enabled, integrated, five-port switch, offering a primary and redundant network. This is said to provide extended connectivity for a laptop to control the d&b amplifiers using the R1 Remote control software via the OCA (Open Control Architecture) protocol.


d&b has also introduced the R90 touchscreen remote control. The 7-inch panel simplifies the general operation of a d&b system and grants users one-touch control of predefined functions such as power, mute, level, grouping and recall of up to nine AmpPresets. All control functions in the R90 work independently of the d&b R1 Remote control software, eliminating the possibility of accidentally altering any of the carefully balanced system settings. Running AES70/OCA, the R90 can be integrated into any d&b system (using up to 15 amplifiers) without the need for additional programming. It incorporates a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and provides a steel housing with aluminium front. All connectors are accessible from the lower rear panel.

In other news, d&b has made available Revit files that allow consultants, architects and systems integrators to include d&b loudspeakers in a Revit-based BIM process at any stage of a project. Revit files provide photorealistic, detailed, 3D data for each loudspeaker, including texture, non-branded renderings to support a neutral tender process and the option to visualise Special colour versions. Where applicable, loudspeakers can be pitched, rotated and panned according to the specified installation.
