• Waves announces CA1000 and CA2000 Commercial Audio DSP Engines

    Waves Audio, developer of audio signal processing technologies, has announced the first products of its new Waves Commercial Audio line: the CA1000 and CA2000 Commercial Audio DSP Engines. Waves Commercial Audio DSP engines reportedly improve audio playback quality and speech intelligibility in any Dante-based A/V installation. Each product is a single-box software-plus-hardware turnkey solution, featuring over two dozen premium Waves processors, with professionally pre-configured, integrator-ready audio processing presets. Waves CA products are targeted for corporate, commercial, government, educational, entertainment, sports and house-of-worship installations.

    The Waves CA1000 and CA2000 Professional DSP Engine units include 19 curated audio processing presets that address challenges with playback quality such as speech intelligibility, feedback elimination, volume normalization from AV playback sources and background noise. These presets are based on over two-dozen low-latency Waves plugins, which can be further customized and stored by integrators based on their requirements. They are designed to tame and control common problems that can occur at installations with media playback, wireless mics, meeting room/table mics, lectern/pulpit mics and broadcast/streaming.

    Each of the presets can be customized and locked-in by the installer for individual channels, groups or zones, to deliver optimal results based on the IO, PA and room.

    A/V installers and integrators can configure the CA1000 to process up to 16x16 bidirectional audio channels, and the CA2000 can be configured to process up to 64x64 bidirectional audio channels over the Dante network. The CA1000 and CA2000 units are either surface or rack-mountable.

    Loudspeaker impedance

    Measured in ohms (symbol, Ω, upper case Greek letter omega), electrical impedance is defined as the opposition to the flow of alternating current by means of presenting an electrical load. In a loudspeaker, impedance varies with frequency, so manufacturers often publish "impedance curves" showing impedance with frequency for passive units. These curves give us... Read more

    Balanced and unbalanced connections

    There are two basic ways to carry an electrical audio signal.

    • The first one is unbalanced. The signal is carried on a two-conductor cable. Unbalanced signal connectors have two pins, such as the RCA (also called Phono and Cinch, commonly used by home hi-fi equipment) and the unbalanced 1/4" (used in musical instruments and semi-professional audio). Multi-pin connectors can also carry
