Allen & Heath has announced additions to its installation portfolio, including compact Dante breakout boxes, touchscreen control panels, and an echo cancelling module.

The AHM-64 audio matrix processor can now benefit from hardware based echo cancellation via the AEC processing expansion module, providing 12 channels of AEC with a 150ms adaptive FIR filter, nonlinear processing for residual echo and background noise reduction, plus AGC (Automatic Gain Control) for the far-end signal.

New A&H Dante breakout boxes, touchscreen panels and echo cancelling moduleOffering multiple benefits over cloud-based echo cancellation, including the ability to handle multi-microphone set-ups and dedicated Sound Reinforcement outputs, the AEC module offers a step-up in audio quality for teleconferencing and videoconferencing applications in meeting rooms and conference centres.

Three new Dante interfaces join Allen & Heath’s Everything I/O range of audio expanders – the DT20 with two mic/line inputs on combi connectors; DT02 with two line outputs on XLR; and the DT22 with 2x2 I/O on Phoenix connectors. The compact form-factor, in conjunction with rugged aluminium casing, makes these suitable for portable A/V hire, while surfacemount and rackmount kits enable integration into permanent installs.

Rounding out the new install offerings, the CC-7 (7-inch) and CC-10 (10-inch) touchpanels augment the existing range of remote-control options for AHM-64, dLive and Avantis mixers. PoE powered and pre-configured to run the Allen & Heath Custom Control app in kiosk mode, they offer an alternative to BYOD in houses of worship, corporate and educational facilities. Multiple user interfaces can be designed by the installer or system integrator, uploaded to the mixing system, and instantly deployed to all connected Custom Control devices.

‘We are responding to a changing paradigm where every room is a potential videoconferencing facility, audio needs to reach new spaces over complex networks, and A/V control gets more distributed and user specific’ says Allen & Heath Head of Product, Nic Beretta. ‘The ecosystem approach, scalability and flexibility are what makes our products a top choice for many integrators, and these latest additions are a perfect example.’
