Yamaha DME Satellite Series Digital Mixing Engine

This major upgrade significantly enhances the functionality and versatility of the DME series product line the DME64N and DME24N and the DME Satellite models: DME8i-C, DME8o-C, DME4io-C, DME8o-ES, DME8i-ES, and DME4io - which allows advanced audio systems to be designed and implemented via a comprehensive computer interface. The DME Designer software application that provides the programming interface is also being upgraded to Version 3.

Enhanced Automatic Adjustment for Meeting and Conference Rooms
An Auto Gain Control component that automatically compensates for variations in the level of a speakers voice, and an Auto Mixer II component that provides an over-ride function and automatic output level control make it possible to create intelligent systems that provide automated control for applications that dont require the presence of an experienced operator.

Improved Zoning Capabilities
Version 3 includes a Room Combiner component that greatly facilitates the combining and dividing of rooms in conference venues for example, as well as the control of zoning in undivided spaces at shopping centers or theme restaurants. Additional Router and Matrix component variations have also been provided for increasing further the capability and efficiency of system design.

Ambient Noise Compensation
The new Ambient Noise Compensator component can be used to measure ambient noise levels and automatically and dynamically adjust the program level for optimum balance and intelligibility. This function can be useful, for example, to optimize the level of announcements at shopping malls at which the ambient noise level may vary greatly depending on the time of day or day of the week.

Automatic Audio Input Detection
The Audio Detector component generates GPI output based on whether or not an input audio signal is detected. This capability could be used, for example, to automatically pan a camera to the current speaker during a conference, control lighting, or perform other advanced functions. Conversely, it could be used to detect when an audio input has stopped and change scenes accordingly.

Simple Mixer
A simple but very useful stereo mixer available in 16-input and 24-input variations, both with dual auxiliary sends. This component can significantly enhance system design flexibility in a wide range of applications.

Features for Smoother Delivery, Setup and Maintenance
All File export and import capability makes it easy to transfer user modules, image files, and all other relevant DME data from computer to computer, and a Device Information display lists the status of all DME devices on a network. These are just two of many features that make setting up and maintaining a commercial audio system easier and more efficient than ever.
