Peavey Commercial Audio, one of the World’s largest manufacturers of professional audio equipment, have announced shipping their latest nWare 2.0 software control suite ahead of InfoComm Orlando 2017, as well as a preview of what is possible with the latest video compatibility.

nWare is the revolutionary drag and drop audio systems configuration, management, monitoring and control software platform behind the MediaMatrix and Crest Audio series of network controllable and configurable products – used in 1,000s of premium commercial installations around the world, including Harrods, Heathrow, Universal Studios, Wynn Macau and Bellagio Las Vegas casino and resort hotels.

With more than 42 major feature sets and functionality upgrades since its introduction back in 2005, the configuration and control platform for Peavey's network audio products nWare 2.0 delivers a fresh updated wizard user interface, ‘quick keys’ and 22 new built-in project templates. Users are now given a more intuitive experience allowing them to select, modify and deploy a working project in less time than it takes to make a cup of coffee.

nWare 2.0 is the most extensive update yet to one of the World's most trusted platforms for mission critical applications, seamlessly working with the Crest Audio network amplifiers, as well as the new MediaMatrix nTouch-180HD and Kiosk-180HD touch screen controllers, the H-DCM & F-DCM (Dante/CobraNet IO modules) and fully integrated with the award winning 'Kiosk2Go' HTML-5 browser based control interface platform.

Joe Kurta, Chief Technical Officer for Peavey Commercial Audio said: “We’ve made some exciting improvements to nWare, the award winning software which already provides audio, control and monitoring of Nion based systems.  Our focus has been to increase the usability in an effort to help authors/designers accomplish tasks with fewer clicks. In a first for InfoComm 2017, we will also be demonstrating the exciting future of video capability using the MediaMatrix platform.”

nWare 2.0 boasts a range of improvements that benefit system designers, integrators and end users alike, including:

Device Tree

nWare’s device tree has been reorganized, hiding advanced and arcane devices to non-advanced users and slimming down iterations of devices that were cluttering the tree.  Devices can now be assigned to quick keys for more rapid placement and with the new filter option, time spent navigating the tree to find a specific device has been eliminated.

Control Interface

Several new products have been added to the control interface; nTouch 180HD, Kiosk 180HD as well as new and improved Crest Amplifier control devices.  Kiosk2Go has improved security and loading speeds and has also been hardened to better maintain and restore sessions over intermittent WIFI.

User Interface

nWare’s integrated design environment (IDE) has undergone a facelift for a far more user-friendly interface.  In addition to updated graphics and toolbars, a template chooser with 22 project templates has been added - offering a starting point for new files in various categories.  Handling of media assets, grid and snap settings usability have also been greatly improved. 

InfoComm Orlando runs at the Orlando Conference Centre from June 14-16.
