This system provides basic presentation audio for one large room that can be divided into two smaller rooms. This system is applicable to a boardroom, classroom, or any multipurpose room in a school, college or church. The room has two zones with these requirements:
This can be accomplished with:
All of the inputs have their own 4-band parametric equalizer. The Room Combine processor in Halogen maps each input to one or both zones. The room speakers have their own parametric EQ and a limiter. Powered speakers are shown in the drawing below, or replaced with amplifiers with distributed ceiling speakers.
There is an easy level mixer for all audio sources in both rooms, easily selected and adjusted with the DR3 Remotes. There are a more unused inputs on the HAL2 for future devices. These inputs can easily be added and named with Halogen software, and the names will appear in the lists on the DR3 remotes.
The wall between the two rooms can be collapsed. The IR2 detector automatically senses when the wall is open or closed, providing separate settings for the DR3s when the wall is closed, and common settings when the wall is open. Room equalization can be automatically switched as well.
