BSS Audio Blu-50BSS Audio has added a ‘cost-effective’ signal processor to its Soundweb London family of digital signal processors.

The Blu-50 is a half-rack processor that offers a fixed configuration of four inputs and four outputs, configurable signal processing, logic processing and Blu link. The device can be powered with a 12V DC power supply or 12-48V DC via a terminal block connector. It can also be powered with PoE+ via the Ethernet port, allowing it to be powered, configured, controlled and monitored using a single Cat5e cable.

The analogue inputs of the Blu-50 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 unit features Blu link, a low-latency, fault-tolerant digital audio bus of 48 channels, which uses standard Cat5e cabling giving a distance of 100m between compatible devices. Fibre media converters can be used to increase the distance between devices to over 10km (6.2 miles) using single-mode fibre.

The Blu-50 is configured, controlled and monitored from HiQnet Audio Architect or HiQnet London Architect, and is compatible with other members of the Soundweb London family. Its 48 channel Blu link bus represents Channels 1-48 of the larger 256 channel Blu link bus when integrated with the Blu-800, Blu-320, Blu-160, Blu-120, Blu-BIB or Blu-BOB devices. Up to 60 Blu link compatible devices can share channels on a single bus.

As with other Soundweb London devices, 12 Control Inputs, six Logic Outputs and an RS232 port allow the Blu-50 to be integrated with other compatible devices.

‘With so much capability packed into such a small device, combined with its powering and mounting flexibility, the Blu-50 is the most versatile and affordable open-architecture processor we’ve created to date,’ says Iain Gregory, Market Manager for Installed Sound at Harman Signal Processing. The Blu-50 further extends the scalability of the Soundweb London platform and represents a major milestone in the broader applicability of open-architecture solutions.’
