• Two new matrix processors from Allen & Heath

    Allen & Heath has announced two new Audio Matrix Processors, AHM-32 and AHM-16, supported by an ecosystem of scalable I/O, control and Dante solutions.

    Scaled-down versions of the existing AHM-64 (2U device on the image), AHM-32 and AHM-16 open up the spectrum of installed audio environments - from a single boardroom to a complete campus - with emphasis on simplicity of programming and control, plus expandable audio networking and I/O capabilities.

    “We are thrilled to see AHM-64 at the heart of so many installations, from global media networks to theme parks” says Nic Beretta, Head of Product at Allen & Heath. “Many integrators we spoke to were eager to see the same approach and technology deployed in a smaller package to suit a wider customer base, and we have delivered on those requests with the AHM-32 and AHM-16.”

    The AHM-32 is built on a 32x32 processing matrix with 12 local analogue inputs and outputs, making it a adequate for multi-room installations in hospitality, corporate and education environments. The optional Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) module is available for teleconferencing and videoconferencing applications.

    The AHM-16 features a 16x16 processing matrix with 8 local analogue inputs and outputs. Out of the box, the AHM-16 is suited to single room applications and smaller multi-room environments including bars, restaurants, shops and school halls.

    Both units benefit from a 96kHz I/O port for audio expansion and networking, enabling the use of a 64x64 Dante card for integration into Dante networks and connection to Allen & Heath’s range of Dante equipped expanders. Alternatively, a SLink card can be fitted for Plug-and-Play connection to Allen & Heath’s Everything I/O ecosystem of remote expanders.

    A range of remote-control options are supported, including an array of PoE remote controllers and the BYOD-friendly Custom Control app, enabling tailored user interfaces for multiple user and device types.

    Both models feature a powerful suite of processing tools derived from the AHM-64, including Automatic Microphone Mixing (AMM), Ambient Noise Compensation (ANC), Priority Ducking, an 8-band parametric EQ on every input and zone, plus speaker processing options.
