Crestron, the global leader in AV control and automation technology, is now
shipping its complete line of new Avia DSPs. Consisting of five models, offering a
full range of professional-grade features, Avia DSPs streamline audio programming,
commissioning, and expansion in meeting rooms and video conference rooms.
Using the powerful and flexible Avia Audio Tool software, Avia DSPs enable
technology integrators to deliver world-class audio performance with an
unprecedented level of efficiency.

The top of the line Avia DSP-1283 is engineered for use in state-of-the-art meeting
spaces and collaboration environments. It provides high-performance AEC that
meets the most stringent professional standards on all 12 channels. DSP-1283
supports audio conferencing via VoIP and POTS, and USB connectivity for video
conferencing via a Crestron RL®2 Skype® for Business solution, or BYOD
presentation using Crestron AirMedia® wireless gateway. I/O expansion with
amplifiers and DigitalMedia™ blade-based switchers is supported via the Dante™
audio network. Additional models include DSP-1282, DSP-1281, DSP-1280, and DSP-
860. All models leverage the revolutionary Avia Audio Tool for audio design and

“The Avia platform delivers a new level of performance and simplicity for audio
professionals,’ said Dennis Fink, Audio Technology Manager at Crestron.
“Programming, tuning, and expanding meeting room audio is actually easy with the
Avia Audio Tool, which is loaded with powerful built-in tools, including channel strips
with microphone and speaker profile pre-sets, a real-time analyser and an
exceptional echo canceller. Plus, audio controls and even VUs can be exported to
touch screens in a small fraction of the time it used to take.’

The Avia Audio Tool provides a powerful and intuitive workspace that streamlines
audio programming. The unique channel-strip architecture simplifies configuration,
with a library of preconfigured strips for the most popular microphones and
Crestron speakers. Built-in tools include a real-time analyser (RTA), virtual mixer,
EQ editor, and state-of-the-art AEC processor. Avia DSPs connect directly to
Crestron touch screens without a central control system. There’s no code to write or
GUIs to design. Just drag and drop channel strip objects for control and to generate
a touch screen UI, including VU meters for visual confirmation that audio is passing
through the system without needing special test equipment.

The new DSPs are a part of the new Crestron suite of Avia Audio Solutions, which
also includes a companion line of network-controlled and monitored multichannel
amplifiers. Avia Audio Solutions are engineered to work together to deliver optimal
audio experiences for better meetings in huddle spaces, presentation rooms, and
collaboration rooms.
