InfoComm 2017: Powersoft to host DSP-focused training

Powersoft has announced that it will provide an on-site training session on its booth 5871 at this year’s InfoComm show.

Attendees will be given the opportunity to earn certification renewal credits while learning how to easily design and specify fixed install systems using DSP integrated Class D power amplifiers.

The session, which will also grant 1.5 Renewal Units (RUs) and a Certificate of Completion, is to be hosted by Powersoft’s fixed install manager Marc Kocks.

The session is entitled ‘How to Optimise Fixed Install Design Using DSP in Class D Amplifiers,’ and will occur during the trade show on 15 June from 1pm to 2.30pm.

Powersoft has been named an official InfoComm International RU Provider, allowing more than 10,000 professionals holding InfoComm International’s Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) credential to earn renewal units towards their certification by completing Powersoft education programs.

Kocks will begin the session by guiding attendees through the process of calculating crest factor and a discussion of its relevance in system performance. From there he will delve into the technological capabilities of Powersoft’s Class D amplifiers, including their pulse width modulation output stage, Power Factor Correction, Smart Rails Management, and damping factor and damping control.

A synopsis of the DSP processing featured on Powersoft’s X series and DSP+D amplifiers will follow, touching on internal routing capabilities, filters and equalisation, limiters, and live impedance monitoring. The session will culminate in a walk-through of the system design process with the aid of powerful tools designed to optimise system performance.

“This session is a fantastic opportunity for InfoComm attendees to renew their CTS certification while gaining valuable insight on how best to leverage our products’ DSP functionality,” Kocks explained. “It will be a highly engaging and informative 90-minute crash course that will surely help integrators deliver optimal results for their clients in both sound quality and efficiency.”

Session registration is required and is now open on a first-come, first-served basis for trade show registrants. To sign up, please visit this link and navigate to course MT61.
