From the beginning, BlueLine Digital support paging commands which makes possible this function and therefore makes the system compatible with programmable external controllers.
The new SPS 8 (Smart Paging Station) is the result of the hardware evolution of BlueLine Digital, creating a multifunction device capable of working as a paging micro as well as an audio server, thanks to its RCA analogue stereo input which is converted into digital and is sent to the network so that any BLR receiver can tune in that channel.
The new Smart Paging Station SPS 8 is a device that allows, at the same time:
- to send warning messages through streaming to different zones previously selected (Paging).
- to act as an audio server thanks to its RCA analogue inputs. The device is able to simultaneously stream input audio and send the messages recorded by the micro connected to the front XLR input.
SPS 8 is a unique device since this is the first paging micro and audio server available on the market. Thanks to its audio server function, it is not necessary to use a device that works as a server, such as BLM or BLS, for a simple installation. It is enough to install a SPS 8 device along with the BLR receivers required (as many as paging zones). For instance, a small company with 6 different meeting rooms or offices can have ambient sound and paging service with one SPS 8, six BLR 2 A and one PoE switch, without any additional amplifiers or power supplies.
The new SPS 8 station is also a PoE device, thus this can be powered through the same Ethernet cable. This provide users with a tidy console since the microphone signal, analogue audio information, power supply and signal data travel via just one Ethernet cable.
