DSS MC11 D is a performance and price breakthrough in automatic ambient noise compensation. Public address (PA) sound systems today are static - they require ongoing manual adjustments in order to maintain signal audibility / intelligibility in environments where background noise fluctuates up and down. Clearly, this is impractical, most PA systems are installed, adjusted for current conditions and left. The result is that most PA signals are either too loud or not loud enough.
With Audiostat inside, your PA sound system becomes a dynamic system, adjusting itself automatically in response to fluctuating levels of background (ambient) noise as it maintains optimum signal intelligibility. Your audio signal will always be intelligible, never too loud, automatically, seamlessly and in real time.
Think of Audiostat as your audio thermostat.
WHAT MAKES IT SO GOOD
Audiostat uses advanced digital signal processing (DSP) in a psychoacoustic model of the human ear/brain system. With its remote sense microphone,
Audiostat hears what we hear and does what we ourselves do everyday to make sure that we can hear what we are listening to properly - we turn up the volume or turn it down.
Audiostat monitors the frequency spectrum and volume of the signal, in the context of the frequency spectrum, volume and rate of change of the volume of the ambient or background noise. Whenever it detects an imbalance in the signal to noise ratio that will impact on signal intelligibility (the signal becomes either too loud or not loud enough)
Audiostat makes an adjustment. Thousands of minute adjustments occur every second, automatically, seamlessly and in real time.
Audiostat operates continuously, it is self-calibrating and is completely adaptive to the audio environment. Power consumption is minimal.
The sense microphone (DSS MC11
MIC), supplied with
Audiostat, has its own integral amplifier for long distance sensing situations of 1000 ft plus. Siting and installation of the sense mic is simple and its small size and neutral colouring make it unobtrusive.
A simple yet comprehensive Installation Guide makes the installation and set-up of
Audiostat DSS MC11 D straight-forward. Power consumption is minimal and the unit is guaranteed against manufacturer's defects for 3 years.
Audiostat uses an external power supply (included) which is CSA an UL approved.
