Bose’s new ControlSpace EX system includes the ControlSpace EX-1280C conferencing signal processor and three ControlSpace EX Dante-based under-table endpoints (EX-4ML, EX-8ML and EX-UH). Designed with input from leading integrators and consultants, the system streamlines audio conferencing design and implementation with purpose-built hardware to deliver seamless microphone integration, comprehensive connectivity, and time-saving software algorithms.
The three low-profile under-table boxes (UTB) with integrated Dante and PoE allow multiple microphones and codec connections from the table to the rack with a single Cat5 cable. The EX-8ML and EX-4ML analogue microphone endpoints support eight- and four-channel microphone inputs respectively, with 48V phantom power, built-in Dante audio conversion, daisy-chainable PoE, and onboard 12V power and multiple GPIO per-channel. The EX-UH adds USB and handset audio for expanded codec options and convenient plug-and-play connectivity at the table for BYOD applications.
The EX-1280C processor includes USB, VoIP, analogue telephone, and Dante connectivity, eliminating the need to choose from different DSP models for different applications. The 1RU design features 12×8 balanced analogue I/O, 12 routable acoustic echo cancellers, 64×64 Dante audio networking, two-line VoIP, a USB port for PC soft codecs, PSTN for analogue telephone connections, eight-channel Bose AmpLink output, serial control via RS-232 and UDP, and a convenient front-panel interface with OLED display.
ControlSpace EX components are configured and controlled with Bose ControlSpace Designer 5.0 software. ControlSpace Remote 2.1 has been upgraded to support the new EX and includes a dialler for creating a complete tablet-based user interface for conference rooms.
