As the Resimercial space within AV gains considerable momentum, LEA Professional, a manufacturer of pro-audio amplifiers with cloud- and IoT-based technologies, is taking actions to try and pioneer technologies that can help integrators navigate this new space.
“The past year unleashed great opportunity in the Resimercial market, which was largely driven by the huge uptick in work-from-home trends,” says Blake Augsburger, founder and CEO LEA Professional. “Integrators need powerful solutions that cater specifically to this sector not to mention robust cloud technology to provide continued support for customers and partners, our Connect Series amplifiers tick those boxes and then some.”
For integrators navigating the world of Resimerical installations, there are features available in today’s leading audio amplifiers that can make their job considerably easier. Here are just a few ways LEA Professional is hoping its amplifiers can help integrators break into this burgeoning market:
3 Features in Next-Gen Amps That Might Make Resimerical Installs Easier
#1: Remote Monitoring
In this cautious environment, system integrators may not easily be able to travel to adjust systems or troubleshoot issues, so a cloud platform makes it possible for integrators to remotely access critical operational data points to maintaining system health.
According to the company, LEA Professional is one of the first in the industry to create a cloud platform that allows complete control and monitoring functionality. LEA Professional says this provides integrators with powerful, reliable and secure remote monitoring and control capabilities across its entire lineup of IoT-enabled Connect Series amplifiers. The cloud platform has supported integrators in the resimercial sector not only by allowing them to work remotely, but also helping ensure they are provided a steady, stable income in the form of recurring service revenue.
70V/100V amplifiers are important for resimercial audio systems as they can send output signals across typically longer wire runs with smaller gauge wire connecting several speakers. This results in a reduced signal loss for applications such as background music, public address, or voice reinforcements. In the case of LEA Professional’s lineup, its Connect Series amplifiers have both network and Dante connect options for 70V/100V amplifiers.
#3: Single Rack Unit
Resimercial audio applications can range from office spaces, schools, universities, factories, restaurants, whole-home audio, and more. These are places where there may not be a dedicated rack room, so integrators will likely tuck the amps in closets or above a drop ceiling. In those circumstances, size becomes an important factor. LEA Professional’s slim design 1RU amplifiers take up very little space, which the company says helps ensure that integrators are provided with a lightweight, seamless installation experience, no matter what the size of the project.
