NEO gets channel and zone boost9 February 2017
New products and updates to scale up the NEO system are being presented by LDA. The compact all-in-one PA/VA system is EN 54-16 certified and EN 60849 compliant, offers high-quality audio PA and background music, and has a web-based control option with SIME Software.
The 2U unit features eight independent power amplifier channels of 120W or four channels of 250W, a 40×1024 Digital Audio Matrix, five analogue and 32 digital external audio inputs, and seven-band parametric equalisation per inputs and outputs.
Expandable up to 1,024 zones, it offers high-quality, real-time audio over Ethernet (48kHz, 24 bit), a dual-message player with 4GB of internal memory, line supervision and back-up amplification and a touchscreen for easy direct control.
NEO also benefits from an advanced event configurator and allows phased evacuation.
On the LDA stand, visitors are able to see how easy it is to control and monitor several LDA NEO systems distributed in different sites by using SIME Control software.
New options for scaling up the NEO system include NEO-Extension 8250, which brings a zone controller and amplifier for eight more zones, providing eight channels of 250W @100V; NEO-Extension 4250 for four more zones, providing four channels of 250W@100V. There’s also NEO-
Extension 4500, which adds a zone controller and amplifier for up to four more zones, providing four channels of 500W@100V or two channels of 1,000W@100V.
NEO also is now ready for EN54 installations for VA sound reinforcement with the NEO-Extension 4500L.
