iDR Software Manager
(Click for a close-up)

At NAMM 2004, Allen&Heath will be introducing the iDR-4 to complement the iDR family of installed and live sound systems. Based on the same technology as the iDR-8 system, iDR-4 is a four input, four output digital processor with additional two input, two output, dual-function monitor channels, ideal for smaller installations which also makes full use of the iDR accessories for expansion.

There will also be three new products in the accompanying series of PL remote controller panels. PL-7 is a stand-alone or surface mounted LCD panel, which, using the PL-Anet interface on CAT-5 cable and connectors enables remote display of status information and text messages which can be stored in the recallable memory settings. The PL-7 can be embedded with PL-3 or PL-4 wall plates, thus allowing programmable control from a single unit.

PL-8 is a four input, four output logic control panel mounted on a wall plate which can be connected to PL-Anet. It is designed to interface external systems such as alarm systems, juke boxes, screens and lights.

To provide even more flexibility for the remote control of iDRs using PL-Anet, the PL-9 hub has been introduced. It is a 1U rack- or desk-mount unit that provides up to seven individual connections to chains of PL devices, simplifying wiring, eliminating the need for complex daisy-chaining. This also provides the benefit of longer cable runs and allows easier 'plug and play' of devices such as the PL-6.

Allen&Heath has additionally launched the latest version of the Windows-based iDR Software Manager that configures iDR hardware components into an integrated audio distribution system. Version 3.3 has been developed to support the new iDR-4 signal processor and PL-9 "hub" unit, and to reflect the familiar Windows-style applications and navigation, including copy, paste and save functions between presets and DSP devices.
