Flexible, easy-to-use interface integrates PC/Mac computers with HARMAN audio systems through BLU link digital audio transport
LAS VEGAS—Today at InfoComm 2016, BSS by HARMAN introduced the Soundweb London BLU-USB interface. BLU-USB is an accessory product for interfacing USB audio to BLU link-enabled audio systems. BLU-USB allows a PC or Mac to send audio to, and receive audio from, the BLU link bus.
Ideal for corporate meeting room applications that use a variety of web-based conferencing services, BLU-USB is an affordable accessory that easily integrates any computer with the local conference audio system. BLU-USB can simultaneously send and receive up to eight channels of audio.
“We designed BLU-USB to be the easiest way to integrate corporate soft-phones to local conference audio systems,” said Tom Lureman, Large Venue Electronics Solutions Manager, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “BLU-USB solves the distance limitations associated with USB transmission. By converting audio to BLU link close to the source, the processor can be located in a different location up to 100 meters away.”
As an accessory product, BLU-USB will work with any BSS Soundweb processor or any other device that includes BLU link. BLU-USB can rest on top of a table or be conveniently mounted under a table or on a wall.
BLU-USB will be available in July 2016.
