Advanced Monitoring Enhances System Reliability

In a theater situation where multiple monitoring function compatible devices such as digital mixers, I/O racks and power amplifiers are distributed throughout the area, a single operator can monitor and manage the entire system from one computer. Not only can faults that aren’t visible from the device’s exterior be easily and quickly detected, but the log makes it easy to identify precisely where a problem is originating from. ProVisionaire Control is an excellent tool for keeping track of device connection status as well as preventing, detecting, and solving problems. The addition of improved audio system monitoring capability will notable increase system convenience and reliability.

System Example 1:Dante network for AV presentation/BGM/Paging system(Enterprise/Education/Hotel Banquet)

- Aggregate in-house broadcasting and voice control of each area into MRX7-D system, and manage them all with Provisionaire Control.

- Utilize digital mixer when more voice input and more detailed operations are required for panel discussion, lecture, band performance etc.

- A single operator can monitor the CL5 and Rio3224-D2 from one Provisionaire Control installed computer.

- The volume of the Meeting Room is individually controlled by the control panel "MCP 1" installed in each room.

System Example 2 : More comprehensive control both audio and video content (Conference rooms, Auditrium, Multipurpose halls, Hotel Banquet)

- Microphones, a Blu-ray player, computer playback, and video switching can all be controlled from the Provisionaire Control or ProVisionaire Touch.

- Utilize MTX5-D Dugan Automatic mixing function when more voice input is required for panel discussion and lecture. It can manage the level of each microphone, achieving better clarity in sound and suppressing unwanted feedback.

Intuitive and simple approach to design flexible controllers

Microphone and CD player volume faders, ON/OFF switches and other widgets can be freely arranged on the design page with drag and drop operation. ProVisionaire Control provides an easy, intuitive way to create original controllers that are ideally configured for the target installation. Multiple design pages are available so that different control panels can be provided for different audio zones and/or users, with presets and parameter settings optimized for each.

Use ProVisionaire Control to design ProVisionaire Touch KIOSK

Controller screens for the "ProVisionaire Touch KIOSK" iPad application have until now been designed using "ProVisionaire Touch," but this update allows them to be designed using "ProVisionaire Control" PC software and sent directly via Wi-Fi. The controller design interoperability this provides is advantageous when you need to efficiently create large numbers of controllers.

Notes: ProVisionaire Touch KIOSK may crash when opening a settings file created with ProVisionaire Touch while a controller file created with ProVisionaire Control is open. In that case please re-start ProVisionaire Touch KIOSK again and open the controller file.

Editing functions that are convenient for designing controllers

ProVisionaire Control Version 3.0 provides controllers that are even more convenient and easier to use. For example, the designer can now specify a "Master style" that defines aspects such as the default color and font for each widget, and there's also a widget for interoperation with the SD card player function featured on the MTX/MRX series.

"Master Style"

This allows you to define and specify the widget design in order to efficiently create them in accordance with your own style. A style you specify can be saved as a file, and then shared with other instances of ProVisionaire Control.

User Level Access Control

ProVisionaire Control and ProVisionaire Control KIOSK have four user level management functions. By utilizing this function, it prevents controller users from accessing the operating system so that unintended control or design changes cannot occur.

Basic procedure: setup to operation

Step 1: Controller Design

Create a layout with widgets that perform the functions of faders and switches, and assign them to the required control devices.

Step 2: Check & Delivery

By using the controller function of PVC, use it as an actual controller to check the appearance and usability.

Step 3: Operation

Once the system is online, all compatible devices can be controlled. The tablet device can be mounted on a wall or other fixed surface, or used handheld for maximum remote control freedom and convenience.

ProVisionaire Control KIOSK

This software allows the Windows PC/Tablet to be set up to function as a dedicated controller, preventing users from accessing the operating system or other applications so that unintended control or design changes cannot occur. Operation widgets, such as faders and switches, and monitor functions are consolidated onto one screen with ProVisionaire Control. And, the use of ProVisionaire Control KIOSK will provide smooth and safe operation of a PA system.

NXAMPmk2

Available in 4 X 1300 Watts and 4 X 2500 Watts versions, the NXAMPmk2 combines advanced signal processing with state-of-the-art four channel Class D amplifiers to create a flexible, light-weight powering and control solution for NEXO loudspeaker systems.
