The new RTS DBP (Digital Beltpack) joins the RTS Digital Partyline intercom family, alongside the recently launched OMS (Omneo Main Station).
DBP is a four-channel/four-button beltpack that runs on PoE (Power over Ethernet) and connects using Omneo IP technology. Its hybrid design supports both digital partyline and matrix keypanel modes: as a digital partyline device DBP connects to an OMS; as a portable keypanel it can connect to any RTS digital/IP matrix product using Omneo. DBP automatically selects the correct mode of operation.
Its PoE-driven design gives it scalability and simplifies adding new users. In and Out PoE ports allow up to six DBP devices to be daisy-chained from one PoE switch port in partyline mode. Up to 40 DBPs can be connected to an OMS, alongside devices OMS supports. Up to 64 DBPs can connect to an OMI card for Adam matrices, and up to 128 can connect to one Odin.
Angelo Piga, product manager at RTS, said: “DBP is one device that can cover it all, whether the application is simple or sophisticated. It’s ideal for new users or current partyline users looking to grow from analogue systems into the superior sound quality and flexible connectivity of digital/IP communications.”
