Powersoft, a world-leading manufacturer of professional power amplifiers, was honored at the 10th edition of the prestigious InAVation Awards, when its installed-dedicated Ottocanali DSP+D Series walked away with the most innovative audio product of the year in the Technology Audio Product (non-loudspeaker) category.

The gala presentation event was held on the first day of Integrated Systems Europe 2016 in Amsterdam, at the Gashouder event venue in the Westergasfabriek gasworks complex, where the Ottocanali DSP+D emerged as the choice for leading audiovisual system integrators, consultants and technology managers.

"We are delighted to have received this prestigious award, and grateful to the integrators and AV professionals for recognising the innovation in this product following what has been a very successful launch in the global marketplace," commented Francesco Fanicchi, Head of Brand and Communications at Powersoft.

Ottocanali DSP+D: massive power and DSP control

The Dante-supporting Ottocanali series of multi-channel amplifiers (12K4, 8K4, 4K4) is a platform to help give the additional boost that will enable installers and integrators to operate at the highest level possible.

The Ottocanali DSP+D Series power amplifiers offer a wide range of system control and monitoring functions as well as sound shaping options, a total of up to 12,000W output power at 4 ohms over 8 channels for lo-Z or distributed line systems — all neatly packed into a double rack unit.

As with former versions of Ottocanali, the new DSP+D versions feature switchable main and aux signal inputs per channel, adequate GPIO, alarms, Lo-Z and Hi-Z output connections as well as mono-bridgeable channel pairs. These 2RU models implement two redundant universal switch mode power supplies with PFC (Power Factor Correction) and patented SRM (Smart Rails Management) technology that maximise the efficiency of the system, while drastically reducing power consumption.

“This has been a spectacular year for Powersoft in each of our markets, and we are very proud to have received our first InAVation Award," continues Francesco Fanicchi. "I would like to express my gratitude to event organisers, InAVate Magazine and everyone within Powersoft who has helped make Ottocanali DSP+D Series such a success."
