USA - Symetrix has announced the release of the latest version of its free Composer programming software for Edge, Radius NX, Prism, and Solus NX DSPs. Composer 8.0 for Windows expands the power of the Symetrix ecosystem with multiple new features including Lua Scripting, Radius NX AEC Enhancement, Audio Playback, and Media Manager.
Composer 8.0 has been enhanced with Lua scripting which allows users to create custom Intelligent modules for Composer. These Intelligent Modules allow the software to control and monitor any device that can be controlled by a third-party control system or provide system logic functionality which previously required large and complex logic programming.
For example, a council chamber audio system could be programmed so that as each person presses their mic button to speak, they're placed in a queue. When each person is finished speaking, the mic of the next person in the queue is automatically unmuted and their indicator LED illuminated. This can be accomplished with logic programming, but it requires large, very complex combinations of objects. Implementing the same functionality with Lua scripting is a simple task that can be programmed and tested in a few hours.
Intelligent Modules created using Lua Scripting in Composer 8.0 are identical to the native Intelligent Modules delivered with Composer and work with both new and existing Symetrix devices compatible with Composer. There is no activation or licensing fee for creating or using Lua scripted Intelligent Modules in Composer.
The Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) cards for the Radius NX have a new configuration option that increases the total number of AEC channels when using discrete AEC references. When processing AEC, the AEC channels in each room need to receive an AEC reference signal specific to that room which presents an increased processing load for the DSP chip.
With Composer 8.0 the Radius NX with AEC-2 card is now capable of up to 12 channels of simultaneous AEC. This enables a single Radius NX to powerfully manage as many as 12 different rooms. The increase in AEC capability may also be realised in existing installations where Radius NX DSPs with AEC cards have been installed, requiring only a firmware update. The Radius NX with AEC-1 card is now capable of processing 6 discreet AEC references.
Audio recording functionality in the Radius NX is now joined by audio playback. Audio systems often include a message playback device for audio cues such as classroom bells, airport parking messages, retail store closing announcements, or background music. The Radius NX can play up to eight audio tracks simultaneously from a local USB drive.
The Radius NX Media Manager is a browser-based feature providing upload, download, playlist, and organization functions for recordings on the USB drive of the Radius NX. Whether a Radius NX is playing background music, announcement messages, or timing chimes, audio files need to be uploaded to the Radius NX before they can be played and organized on the drive.
