The SoundServer

Request Brochure

The coachsound ® SoundServer consists of a central head-unit to which dual microphones can be connected. Along with the SoundServers' integrated storage for thousands of music tracks you can optionally connect other external audio systems such as DVD and CD-shuttles. The integrated music and any connected audio sources are then converted to a high quality digital audio signal. This digital signal is then transmitted to each seat-based passenger controller via the PCU42 network.

Using the integrated USB2.0 connection and a personal computer, upload and sort all music into genre 'zones' on the SoundServer. Each zone will play on a separate passenger controller channel in random play order. With the optional output adapter fitted to the SoundServer, up to 5 stereo music zones can be sent to external audio systems. This can replace up to 5 separate CD-shuttles!

Dual microphones with individual PCU channels are provided as standard. One channel offers a selectable VOX voice override function that allows the driver to interrupt all audio channels for important journey information. If the VOX option is turned off, this microphone is still be available on its own PCU channel.

A simple control panel built into the SoundServer head-unit allows microphone volume levels, VOX sensitivity and other connected audio systems' volume levels to be equalized across all PCU audio channels. It also allows the VOX option to be turned on or off.
