BSS Audio® BLU-100 Provides Upgraded Signal Processing To Soundwebâ„¢ London Series

BSS Audio®, a Harman International Company (NYSE-HAR), today added a cost-effective signal processor to its acclaimed Soundwebâ„¢ London family of digital signal processors. The new Soundweb London BLU-100 represents a premium, open-architecture solution in the form of a highly flexible, cost-effective and scalable package.

The BLU-100 offers a fixed configuration of 12 inputs and eight outputs, configurable signal processing, logic processing and a fault tolerant digital audio bus. The configurable signal processing capability offered by the BLU-100 is roughly twice that of the Soundweb London BLU-80 and BLU-16 devices.

The analog inputs of the BLU-100 provide software configurable gain in 6dB steps up to +48dB per channel and software selectable Phantom Power per channel. Phantom Power, Signal Present and Clip information per channel is easily accessible, without the requirement for a PC, from clear front panel LED indication.

The BLU-100 features a low latency, fault tolerant digital audio bus of 48 channels which uses standard Category 5e cabling giving a distance of 100m between compatible devices. Fiber media converters can be used to increase the distance between devices to over 10km (6.2 miles) using single mode fiber.

The BLU-100 is configured, controlled and monitored from HiQnetâ„¢ London Architect and is compatible with other members of the Soundweb London family. Its 48 channel digital audio bus represents channels 1-48 of the larger 256 channel digital audio bus when integrated with the BLU-800, BLU-320, BLU-160, BLU-120 and BLU-BOB devices. Up to 60 digital audio bus compatible devices can share channels on a single bus.

As with other Soundweb London devices, 12 Control Inputs and six Logic Outputs allow the BLU-100 to be integrated with GPIO compatible devices.

Iain Gregory, market manager for installed sound at Harman Music Group stated, “The BLU-100 is an example of where user feedback, combined with the leveraging of Soundweb London's technology, functionality and flexibility has resulted in the development of a truly game-changing product. The BLU-100 broadens the reach of Soundweb London and makes a solution strongly associated with high-profile projects available to many more applications.”

The BLU-100 and the other members of the Soundweb London family provide the building blocks of the perfectly tailored system solution.
