MSE Audio, parent company of SoundTube Entertainment, Soundsphere, dARTS, Phase Technology, Induction Dynamics, SolidDrive and Rockustics, has created the OS-440 smart amplifier for outdoor audio applications.
Debuting at InfoComm 2018, the OS-440 from MSE Audio features IP55 certification; it is entirely weatherproof, allowing it to remain outside. With on-board Bluetooth functionality and Wi-Fi direct mode, the OS-440 can wirelessly connect to an existing network and function as a Google Chromecast device, interface with DLNA servers and provide multi-zone control. In addition, users have the option to hard-wire a source for analog and digital outputs, allowing it to interface with any existing source or system.
The OS-440 boasts multi-zone control, as well as voice-controlled audio control by pairing with an Amazon Alexa-enabled device.
“Creating a hub for an outdoor audio experience, the OS-440 is easily controlled through a sophisticated smart-device app” said Laura Waldon, president of MSE Audio. “Designed for flexible outdoor audio design, the OS-440 is ideal for any outdoor residential or commercial space. With all mounting hardware included, the OS-440 installs easily.”
