Bogen Communications CORE 8X8 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for small to medium installations, The CORE 8X8 from Bogen Communications is a versatile drag-and-drop DSP processor. The processor consists of a configurable hardware main frame, along with dedicated DSP software. The hardware system configuration is highly flexible, with front panel knobs that can be programmed to map to any functions within the DSP library and can be scaled to match the requirements of the project.

The software system design is PC based and once connected, allows for design, downloading, reversal of in-box designs, and live monitoring, calibration, and routing. Third-party control systems such as Crestron, AMX, Vity and others can also control unit either via RS-232 or IP commands. Up to fifty-three minutes of audio storage is available and audio files can be activated via a built-in scheduler, any of sixteen TTL inputs, or via an end user GUI interface custom built for each application.

Up to twelve CORE units can be networked together for expandability. A variety of accessories, including low cost analog controllers (RAC), digital controllers (URC), and various paging and control microphones (PPM, PPM Touch) are available for use with the system.
