As part of optimising its dLive system for installed applications, Allen & Heath released a new dLive MixRack, the DM0, targeted at distributed audio scenarios. DM0 is a 4U 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 just <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 ½ 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 mount expander, the 16-in/4-out DX164-W, joins the recently released DX168 stage box 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 more.

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.
