Praesensa is the latest Public Address and Voice Alarm System from Bosch – IP-connected and fully-featured. All components of the system are networked, thereby ensuring the highest flexibility and scalability from small centralised to large decentralised systems. The Bosch Omneo IP architecture supports Dante audio networking, AES67 and AES70 protocol.
The innovative multi-channel amplifier architecture with intelligent power allocation across the amplifier outputs and integrated spare channel significantly improves the effective utilisation of available power, regardless of the loudspeaker load in each zone. As a result, fewer amplifiers are needed, saving up to 50 percent on space, energy and backup battery power and leading to a very competitive cost of ownership.
Praesensa offers special features for the highest level of data security and full network link redundancy with smart integration of functions and backup facilities. No single point of failure is core to the system concept and only a few different devices are needed to fulfil all system and user needs.
The intuitive interface of the call station provides an optimised user experience through an effective combination of touch screen and selection buttons. Clear progress guidance and status feedback ensure comfort and ease of use for operators.
Praesensa is a comprehensive system that is compliant to the evacuation standard EN 54-16 and adapts easily to changing needs. It offers full sound control per zone to create the right atmosphere with background music and to meet speech intelligibility requirements for business and emergency operations, making it a fit-for-purpose solution for consultants, installers and building owners alike.
Bosch is a trusted partner with more than 90 years of experience in Public Address Systems. As a true market leader, Bosch introduced the first networked digital Public Address and Voice Alarm System 15 years ago and continues to develop innovative technology and solutions. Now Bosch is presenting the full IP-based Praesensa, a solution that connects all the dots and sets again new industry standards.
The Praesensa Public Address and Voice Alarm System will be available from July 2018 onwards.
