V4-d with LCD Display and Rotary Encoder for simple front panel control
V4-i without LCD Display for remote software control
The V Series Systems Engines provide VUE loudspeakers with a highly-sophisticated, networkable DSP and amplifier solutions that enable optimal performance when combined with almost any VUE loudspeaker system. The V Series Systems Engines combine sophisticated, next-generation DSP technology, onboard SystemVUE networking, and powerful, high-efficiency class D into a compact, 2U rack mount chassis. The V Series line consists of two models, including the 2-in/4-out V4, as well as the 2-in/6-out V6. Both the V4 and V6 are available in either touring configuration (with front panel LCD interface) or installation configuration (without front panel LCD interface).
Next Generation DSP
At the heart of the V Series Systems Engines is a powerful and fully customized integrated circuit that handles all processing and system management, including speaker protection, system-optimized alignment of EQ, time and crossover functions, as well as configuration settings and SystemVUE network capabilities. This highly-sophisticated DSP circuit is used across multiple VUE product lines, including the h-Class powered loudspeakers. This consistency ensures that VUE DSP and networking functionality is identical regardless of product class, and that different VUE product classes can be easily networked together.
In addition, VUE’s powerful DSP architecture makes it easy for our engineers to expand V Series’ configuration programming so that the V4 and V6 Systems Engines can be optimized for use with an ever-expanding selection of VUE Audiotechnik loudspeakers. From the simplest i-Class configurations, to the most advanced al-Class-based flying rigs, the V Series Systems Engines are tightly integrated with all four VUE Audiotechnik product classes for optimal sonic performance and simplified setup.
V Series Systems Engines ship with SystemVUE networking capabilities already onboard. There’s no need for additional cards or retrofitting. The SystemVUE network connects any VUE DSP-enabled product to a Windows or Macintosh computer via a wired or wireless Ethernet connection. And because SystemVUE networking technology is compatible with standard IP protocols, users simply plug in, and the product will automatically recognize and connect to virtually any kind of IP configuration, including DHCP based networks, a fixed IP network, or even an ad hoc network (directly connecting to a computer via Ethernet cable). Whatever the configuration, it just works.
Once connected, the companion SystemVUE software allows user to access any single unit, or entire networks of them, through a highly intuitive user interface. Device and network specific windows make optimizing and monitoring easy, with controls for input/output levels, volume, mute, delay, input source and the ability to monitor a broad list of parameters.
Integrated Class D Amplification
V Series Systems Engines benefit from highly-efficient Class D amplifier circuitry, which allows for massive output and headroom from an extremely compact form factor while producing significantly less heat than more conventional designs. This allows the deceptively compact, 2U-sized V4 and V6 to deliver impressive amounts of pure, clean power while maintaining a “cool composure” under the most demanding conditions. From there we add a lightweight, fully protected switch mode power supply with auto voltage detection for hassle-free worldwide operation. Self-protection circuitry includes input limiter, short circuit protection, DC protection of output, under and over voltage protection, intelligent mains fuse protection, power stage overload protection, and temperature protection of both transformers and heat-sinks.
The V4 Systems Engine is a 2-in/4-out configuration that supplies an impressive two channels at 1600W for the low frequency, and an additional two channels at 550W for the high frequency. The 2-in/6-out V6 Systems Engine retains the v4’s svelte 2U chassis, but adds two more amplifier channels. V6 output includes two channels at 2500W for the low frequency, two at 800 W for the mid frequencies, and two at 800W for the high frequencies. The V6 can also be software configured to provide four channels at 2,500 watts for specialized applications.
