AES67, FIR Filters and Q-Sys Plugins...Oh My!
Hello development team,,
While in Nashville this week, I had a amp training with one of the larger integrators that we are trying to get to use more of our products. My rep and I asked about possible roadblocks to them specifying our products more often and they came up with three. You might note that this is not the first time any of these three have come up in recent requests but the fact that they found all three to be important was somewhat telling in what we need to provide to be competitive in the marketplace.
First was AES67 compatibility to be able to interface with other digital audio devices not using Dante as their native digital audio format.
Second was FIR filters for fine tuning our RoomMatch, ShowMatch and ArenaMatch products. This has been a hot button for many contractors who point out that almost all of our competitors use it to help tame the lobing of the Low Frequencies in arrays. This was one of the topics that we spent time on at our recent Field Engineer Summit in Framingham.
Third was a plugin for use with our amplifiers in systems where Q-Sys is used as the Control System. For many integrators, they like the flexibility of the PowerMatch amplification but like the monitoring ability of Q-Sys. Not having a plugin sometimes will eliminate the use of our amplifier in their system designs.
As we move forward in developing new products that will allow us to be the leading choice of audio equipment, I hope that we take the requests for these frequently requested features seriously and implement them into our products.
Many Thanks for your consideration,
