Allen & Heath has extended the integration of its dLive digital mixing systems, with multi-purpose venues as its target. New releases, control options and expanders allow the dLive ecosystem to provide distributed, integrated, scalable and accessible solution, handling every aspect of a venue’s audio from simple boardroom tasks to a full scale live show.

Allen & Heath dLive MixRack DM0A new dLive MixRack targeted at distributed audio scenarios, the DM0, has been added to the family. DM0 is a 4U-high mix engine, housing Allen & Heath’s XCVI FPGA Core and providing enough processing power for 128 channels and 64 buses at 96kHz with a latency of <0.7ms, in keeping with the existing dLive MixRacks. Interfacing to audio networks for access to hundreds of sources and destinations is provided by DM0’s three 128ch I/O ports, accepting cards for all major audio networking protocols, including Dante and AES67.

Other new products include a new DX Link I/O card and DX Hub half-rack unit, which now enable a dLive system to connect up to 48 audio IO devices, located up to 100m apart to meet the needs of the largest venues. A new wall-mounted expander, the 16-in/4-out DX164-W, joins the recently released DX168 stagebox and the modular DX32 in the DX expander range. Integration with third-party equipment has also been enhanced with the unveiling of a new GPIO unit, allowing dLive to control lighting, curtains and other systems.

Remote control options have been extended with the introduction of the programmable IP1 wall plate remote control, giving non-technical users control over functions such as music source selection, level control, or preset recall. Up to 96 IP1, IP6 and IP8 remote controllers can now be added to a dLive system via standard TCP/IP networks, in addition to console style mixing surfaces, tablet and laptop control, offering a multi-user, multi-point control architecture over wired or wireless networks.

‘What we’re doing with dLive is bringing together the best aspects of audio management systems and live mixing consoles to create a 360° solution for today’s multi-purpose facilities,’ says Allen & Heath Head of Product Marketing, Nic Beretta. ‘If you look at environments like schools and colleges, houses of worship or arts centres, they need to handle everything from background music and meetings right through to large-scale live performances: until now there really hasn’t been one system that can excel in all situations. With this extension of dLive and forthcoming software features focused on installation, we’re allowing our customers to create incredibly powerful systems, and yet make these accessible for all levels of users, from the fitness instructor to the A/V professional.’
