BEAVERTON, Ore.— Jan. 30, 2024 — Biamp, a leading supplier of professional audiovisual solutions, today at ISE 2024 in Barcelona, Spain, introduced the Voltera™ D series of networked amplified loudspeaker controllers (ALCs), which offer powerful onboard digital signal processors, sophisticated tools for tuning rooms, and a host of other one-of-a-kind features.
Voltera D ALCs are available in 1200-watt or 2400-watt configurations across four or eight channels. The Voltera D line is easy to use and configurable by either Tesira™ or the new Biamp VenueTune™ software, depending on user preference and audio network protocols.
Voltera D is one of the very few lines of amplified loudspeaker controllers in the market to feature redundant network audio, support of failover between mains power and backup generators without a reboot, and group-controlled raised cosine EQ—making it attractive for large systems.
Voltera D is also the only line of ALCs in the market to provide support of both AVB and Dante and accurate raised cosine EQ below 160 Hz, which results in more precise elimination of room modes and optimization of the low-frequency performance of a system. It is also the only 8 x 150-watt ALC on the market, with competitors starting at 250 to 500 watts per channel, which may be expensive overkill for many applications.
“The Voltera D series is designed to provide extraordinary audio experiences for the most demanding applications where the audio must stay on and a protective mute isn’t acceptable,” said Joe Andrulis, Executive Vice President of Corporate Development at Biamp. “Through our new VenueTune software, installers and designers enjoy a simplified design process and deployment of Voltera D ALCs, including the ability to select what amplifiers to drive the speakers with and the ability to predict the current draw and heat dissipation. They also get powerful system tuning and comprehensive system performance monitoring.”
The new VenueTune software offers in-depth control through an intuitive graphical interface, which uses simple 2D floorplans and a staged workflow to guide system designers and installers. The software also provides extensive performance and usage logging over time, enabling IT personnel, AV pros, and venue managers the ability to optimize performance after installation.
All Voltera D models provide high power and channel density in a compact 1 RU enclosure for space savings while maintaining high efficiency and low idle power. They are capable of high peak voltage output and using power sharing they can deliver up to 75% of the total amplifier power on any single channel. They also offer the option of either Lo-Z or Hi-Z per channel to support hybrid systems—including the ability to manage redundant media interfaces such as AVB, Dante, and AES67. The Voltera D series is ideal for a wide variety of applications, from houses of worship, to transportation and government buildings, to entertainment and sports venues.
