FrontRow networked audio devices are connect to the LAN network and either encode or decode audio onto the network. They receive audio and control signals from the DRS5000 server when used in a school wide audio-over-IP paging system. Some devices such as the CM3000 can be used stand alone in a classroom or even boardroom application as it is self contained with audio inputs, a 2 channel power amp and the option of 8 button keypad or touchpanel.
The range consists of the following:
FrontRow CM3000 Network all-in-one amplifier and device controller with 4 audio inputs, RS232, IR, GPI and built in network switch. Includes 32w (2 x 16w) into 4 Ohm amplifier. Connects to school LAN to DRS5000 server for paging and bells with priority override of local inputs. Can be used with optional CB6000 touchpanel or CB2050 8 button panel with Volume Control, for local control of 3rd party devices such as Projectors and DVD players via RS232/IR. Can also be used stand alone or as part of a school wide LAN based PA/Bell system.
FrontRow CM800 Networked audio encoder/decoder that accepts streaming audio input (raw PCM) and delivers line level audio output. The primary purpose of the CM800 is to provide connectivity between the FrontRow Conductor IP-based paging system and standard 100v amplifiers and speakers frequently used to bring audio messaging to school common and outdoor areas. Also provides serial, IR, GPI and GPO (relays) to support network-based 3rd party device control. Features 1 x mic and 1 x line level audio inputs. (no control panel option)
FrontRow CM800s Networked audio encoder/decoder that accepts streaming audio input (raw PCM) and delivers line level audio output and Includes 32w (2 x 16w) into 4 Ohm amplifier . Also provides serial, IR, GPI and GPO (relays) to support network-based 3rd party device control. Features two line level audio inputs. Normally mounted in a ceiling box option. Features 1 x mic and 1 x line level audio inputs and includes an Intercom jack for a FrontRow intercom microphone (CB75 or CB85). (no control panel option)
FrontRow PD-20W is a power over Ethernet (PoE) powered device used to extract 12vDV from a PoE network to power CM3000, CM800, CM800Si and CM800. Usually used for back up operation.
