Lectrosonics is introducing the DM84, the latest product in the DM Series of digital audio processors with LecNet2™ control software, at InfoComm 2006. The Lectrosonics DM Series provides easily configurable processing, mixing, and routing capabilities for sound reinforcement and conferencing applications often requiring multiple microphones and loudspeakers.

The new DM84 unit features the capability to route any combination of inputs to any combination of outputs, in addition to auto mixing via a proportional gain algorithm, sophisticated filtering on each input and output, built-in delay on each input and output and low throughput latency. The DM84 runs on the latest-generation DSP architecture and can be integrated as part of a larger system by connecting other DM units (like the DMTH4) via the Digital Audio Network Interface (DANI) bus.

The DM84 offers eight mic/line inputs with four outputs; switchable phantom power to handle condenser microphones; programmable front-panel control knobs for easy adjustment; and auto mic mixing with Proportional Gain and AutoSkew. The unit is AMX® and CRESTRON® compatible with USB and RS-232 interfaces for setup, control and daisy-chaining to additional LecNet2 devices.

LecNet2, the DM Series' control software, operates on Windows 2000 or XP PC platforms and offers full command of the system via USB or RS-232 compatible interfaces. This included software yields off-line system configuration, quick configuration downloading, and robust macro tools. Once LecNet2 is used for system setup, the configuration is saved in a file and within the DM unit's memory for operation. Upon configuration, no host computer is needed.
