Recent enhancements for the performance you want, including Automatic Microphone Mixing and Surround Sound Decoder Input Card.

Recent Enhancements

* Automatic Microphone Mixing: provides gating, priority, and NOM attenuation for sound reinforcement systems using multiple active microphone inputs
* Surround Sound Decoder Input Card: optional expansion card which decodes Dolby Digital, DTS, and PCM audio formats, eliminating the need for an external decoder and integrating all the audio processing within the ESP-88
* Expanded serial protocol: Allows the ESP-88 to be more easily integrated in installations requiring audio, video, lighting, and other controls using Crestron, AMX, or other third party devices

Engineered Sound Processor

The Bose® ControlSpace ESP-88 engineered sound processor is a flexible, expandable and high quality audio signal processor for engineered sound applications such as houses of worship, theaters, auditoriums and sports venues. The base model (ESP-88) includes eight inputs (microphone or line-level selectable) and eight line-level outputs. Four available audio slots allow the addition of up to 16 more analog audio channels - inputs, outputs or a combination - or up to 32 more digital audio channels (AES3) as inputs, outputs or a combination. For large applications, multiple ESP-88s can be used per system. Multiple choices of user controllers are available to provide end users with simple, easy-to-use control of their ControlSpace system.

Expansion Cards

Add any combination of 10 expansion cards to increase the number of audio inputs and outputs. Adding the ControlSpace DSP expansion card increases DSP processing fourfold.
