PCC Technology

PCC Technology is the future in the evolution of the concept of sound reinforcement, based on the application of computer digital management advantages to professional audio reinforcements.

Since 2002 we have been designing and developing Self-Powered sound systems by DSP, namely a PCC Speaker and controlled by laptop via software.

After many years of experience, we are happy to introduce the new PCC-3 Technology, a network platform that include both software (PCC-Net) and hardware DSP for the control, diagnostic and monitoring of TECNARE’s Loudspeaker

A standard PCC-3 speaker houses one or more efficient and reliable switched mode power supply Class D module amps and a high quality 96kHz audio DSP processor. All these PCC speakers are linked by a network via CAT-5 cable and Rj45 connection through a USB interface to the laptop.

The PCC-3 package comprise of  Podware Software, PCC-Net protocol, PCC-NET Interface drivers and of course, the TECNARE loudspeakers.

Once connected, we can control in real time the parameters of each speaker individually or grouped as we decide, factors such as volume, graphic equalization, parametric equalization, box delay, save and recall of presets, polarity, real-time diagnostics and more!

Cant you imagine, when working with a line array system, adjusting differently the array elements used for downfil to the ones used on top of the line, ONLY with the help of a small laptop?

And what about also controlling your monitors using ONLY a small laptop… while on the same screen a very powerful audio tool is monitoring the audio response? Using this technology, you can forget about racks, eqs, crossovers, patches, etc.

PCC│NET - Podware Software

CONTROL & MONITORING SOFTWARE

All lTecnare digital system controllers can be controlled by the PodWare® Loudspeaker System Control Software Package, which will allow remote access to all controller functions. Controllers fitted with network cards can also be networked via Cat 5 connections and controlled from the one screen. Grouping of controllers is also possible.

Podware is an all-new software package running under PC Windows™ for setting up and controlling device that are compatible with Obcom Protocol.

It is a clean Object Oriented package using the latest development technologies yielding intuitive ease of use and all the features you have come to expect and more. Podware may be used for programming factory settings or configuring installations as well as the live control and monitoring of devices during use. Podware uses the ObCom standard throughout; it speaks ObCom natively with connected devices. These devices may be connected individually using RS232 or USB. When participating in a networked system, Podware can control many devices via Ethernet and RS485.

Podware can be used as a plug-in with AFMG SysTune audio analysis software.
