Yamaha showcased significant new products at ISE 2023, which highlighted the company’s move towards a single, connected solution.
Delivering efficiency, scalability, speed and control, Yamaha’s new products aim to significantly improve the workflow for systems integrators.
In recent years Yamaha has developed a comprehensive range of products for small and medium-sized installations, offering audio quality, flexibility and ease of installation with the company’s renowned reliability.
Major new products for 2023 take the company’s solutions to a new level, allowing them to cater for larger, more complex projects.
The new flagship DME7 Signal Processor delivers the DSP power and I/O needed for larger installations. Building on the success of the DME series digital mixing engines and MTX/MRX series matrix processors, the DME7 supports 96kHz audio quality and features an expandable Dante matrix capable of growing from 64 x 64 channels over a standard network.
Further blocks of 64 x 64 (up to a maximum of 256 x 256) with additional DSP can be licensed permanently or for specified periods of time, meaning users are only paying for as many channels as they need for a particular project.
The powerful DME7 features a vast array of DSP components, which can be freely selected and connected to suit your exact requirements. Its impressive processing power means it can be used for a wide variety of applications, from professional conferencing through to complex multi-space, multi-use facilities, all manageable by a wide range of remote control options.
To configure the DME7 a comprehensive new software application was launched at ISE. ProVisionaire Design is a major leap forward which brings the DME7 and many of Yamaha’s other installation products together within one configuration and control ecosystem.Previously, different Yamaha products would need their own software, like MTX Editor and ProVisionaire Amp Editor. ProVisionaire Design radically streamlines the setup and control process by allowing an extensive range of Yamaha products to be seamlessly configured from the same interface, speeding up and simplifying the workflow for systems technicians.
An important feature of ProVisionaire Design is that system designers can simulate the routing within complex audio setups before physically creating them, making the procurement and installation processes faster.
ProVisionaire Design is compatible with Yamaha’s RM series microphone solutions for collaboration and conferencing - part of the wider ADECIA system - which will also was showcased at ISE 2023. With a huge range of applications in the corporate, education, events and hospitality markets, ADECIA uses Yamaha processors, amplifiers and speakers to ensure that every word of a meeting or presentation is picked up and clearly heard by both present and remote participants. Systems can be created for every situation, from a small collaboration space or a simple boardroom, up to full bespoke solutions for auditoriums and large multi-zone areas.
Also made their ISE debuts, the new CS-500 and CS-800 video collaboration systems were on demonstration, showed advanced AI camera technology which harmonises voice and video data.
The new products showcased at ISE 2023 highlight how Yamaha can help systems designers and integrators to meet their clients’ needs, simply and effectively, for a wide range of audio applications.
Finally, Yamaha will be opening registration for a new series of AVIXA-RU accredited, pan-European training courses. Part of the Audioversity education initiative, the four courses cover Immersive Audio Systems, Speech Intelligibility In Professional Communications Systems, ADECIA product training and ProVisionaire Design product training.
