Bosch Communications Systems announces IRIS-Net V2.0
Bosch Communications Systems is pleased to announce the release of IRIS-Net V2.0. Since its debut in 2002, IRIS-Net has set new standards as a unified software package supporting DSP design, device control, custom user interface creation, and system integration spanning multiple Bosch Communications Systems brands.
Used in thousands of the most high-profile and cutting-edge live, touring, and installed applications around the world, IRIS-Net has received rave reviews from users about its ease of use, flexibility and power. IRIS-Net V2.0 continues to expand IRIS-Net’s impressive array of features by adding new devices such as EV REV Wireless Microphones.
IRIS-Net V2.0 also brings FIR-Drive technology front and center. EV’s FIR-Drive combines transducer development, state-of-the-art FIR processing, and optimized DSP protection algorithms to create a holistic approach to system development. Electro-Voice has created the most revolutionary technology platform on the market by combining in-house expertise from every area of R&D into its system solutions.
IRIS-Net V2.0 provides additional FIR-Drive controllers, a new Peak Anticipation limiter, and brand-new speaker settings for EV concert sound products to take sound and performance to a whole new level.
The latest version of IRIS-Net also includes the following features and additions:
