Announcing New 9000M2 Firmware/GUI Software

New-sync-pagingTOA is proud to announce the immediate release of v3.0 GUI Software & Firmware for the 9000M2 Digital Matrix/Mixer. The new software includes many refinements to the existing 9000M2 functionality, making it more flexible and easy-to-use. Most importantly, it includes an expanded SYNC feature in the paging event matrix, allowing it to work along with the new Q-RM9012 Multi-Zone Paging Mic and the Q-SS9012 Speaker Selector. Used with these accessories, this new feature provides multi-zone paging function (up to 12 zones) even with a one or two channel amplifier configuration, offering a more cost-effective paging solution.  In addition, this expanded SYNC function may also be used to synchronize paging events with control of other external equipment.

TOA Tech Tip: How to Configure Your PC with a Static IP Address
  By: Josh Srago, CTS

IP solutions are everywhere in the A/V world today and without a firm understanding of how to communicate with those products; the benefits go completely out the window.  It might seem like a basic principle of A/V integration anymore, but at some point we all had to learn the fundamental step involved: setting up your PC for a static IP address.
So here's a step by step guide on how to make sure your PC network connection is ready to speak to TOA network devices. (This may vary slightly depending on the version of Windows you are running.)

  1. Click on your Start button and open the Control Panel
  2. Double Click on the Network and Internet
  3. Click on Change adapter settings (Windows 7) or Manage network Connections (Vista)
  4. Right Click on Local Area Connection or, if you are using a USB to Network adapter, right click on that connection
  5. Select Properties.A pop up window will appear, highlight the text
  6. "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" by clicking it and then click Properties
  7. Change the bullet point from "Obtain an IP address automatically" to "Use the Following IP address"
  8. Type in 192.168.1.X (with X being the sum all of your IP devices +1) into the IP address line
  9. Type in into the Subnet Mask
  10. Click OK
IPLittering the TOA family of products there are several different devices that connect to a network.  The D-2000 Matrix/Mixer and its control surface the D-2012C, the N-8000 IP Intercom System, the DP-K1 with ARC Processor are some of the first that come to mind.  The NX-100 Network Audio device is one that should draw a great deal of attention for its ability to broadcast point to point or multi-cast to several locations simultaneously over a network.  With so many systems today requiring paging solutions and network devices, the NX-100 should not be forgotten.  For more information on how the NX-100 can be used in a Mass Notification system, make sure to sign up for our webinar on May 11th.

For more information on any of the TOA products you see above, please visit our product pages on our website by clicking the links, or call our Product Support Group at 800-733-4748 from 8 am to 8 pm EST.
