Bosch’s Communications Systems Division Announces IRIS-Net V2.1.1

August 7th, 2009

Bosch’s Communications Systems Division is pleased to announce the release of IRIS-Net V2.1.1 software. IRIS-Net V2.1.1 continues to expand the rich feature set already available to users by offering new features developed for both live audio and installation markets alike.

Additions such as two-, three-, four-, and five-way FIR-Drive DSP blocks for NetMax make it easier than ever to take full advantage of the superior performance that EV’s FIR-Drive processing and hardware technology offer, while the newly added Scene Manager provides a new level of customization for control and recall of DSP parameters within NetMax. Additional User Controls and DSP Object Template Dialogs bring a new dimension to what is already one of the industry’s most customizable and flexible GUI applications for setting up and controlling audio systems. Additionally, IRIS-Net V2.1.1 now provides up to 64 Control Layers to allow users to create even deeper and richer interfaces than ever before.
