Today, L-Acoustics announces that the LA12X amplified controller is the first L-Acoustics product to receive Avnu certification, the LA4X will also receive certification in the coming weeks.
The Avnu-certified LA12X and LA4X amplified controllers include built-in AVB bridge functionality. Apparently, they are the first Avnu-certified amplified controllers to be launched with both Bridge and Listener technology. To accompany LA12X and LA4X, LA Network Manager software is also updated with an AVB controller, which eases connection with other systems and integrates seamlessly via an easy and natural user interface.
The amplified controllers with new AVB-enabled firmware are currently in a pilot phase with select L-Acoustics partners and will be rolled out widely this spring. All LA4X amplified controllers manufactured since June 2015 and all LA12X ship AVB-ready, which means that L-Acoustics partners will benefit from AVB via a simple firmware update. LA4X manufactured before June 2015 will require an updated DSP card, available through L-Acoustics’ service team.
