The PIP-BLU offers 2 channels of audio via the Soundweb London digital audio bus informally known as BLU Link. This high bandwidth digital audio bus provides easy connectivity with fault tolerance. BLU link features a low latency, fault tolerant digital audio bus of 256 channels which uses standard Category 5e cabling giving a distance of 100m between compatible devices. The BSS Audio MC-1 fiber optic media converter can be used to increase the distance between devices to over 10km (6.2 miles) using single mode fiber.
Inputs & Outputs
The PIP-BLU allows for both BLU link and analog input and output. This allows for analog audio to be used as a backup as well as being distributed to additional amplifiers.
The audio path in the PIP-BLU is designed to match the standard Smart-Amp feature set available in the PIP-Lite module and Macro Tech i Series amplifiers. These features include input compressors, multimode output limiters, error reporting and load monitoring. These features are designed to allow for protection of your speakers while the processing is done upstream.
The PIP-BLU is a HiQnet component. This means it connects to a HiQNet system via 100 Mb Ethernet. With HiQnet, a control system of any size can be interconnected using standard 100 Mb Ethernet components (Switches, Network Interface Card, and cables). The control portion of the PIP-BLU can also be connected to a CobraNet™ network to allow for easy network creation. The PIP-BLU cannot receive or transmit CobraNet audio. Please use the PIP-USP4/CN if this function is desired.
The PIP-BLU requires HiQnet London™ Architect Software.
Five Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable Warranty completely protects your investment and guarantees its specifications.
