DSA-1 Manager Software Launched
Prism Sound’s DSA-1 hand-held AES/EBU Signal Analyzer and Generator is now available with a brand new “DSA-1 Manager” suite of software designed for Windows XP.
The new software combines several functions previously handled by separate applications, including:
· Download of firmware updates
· Uploading of test results logged by the instrument
· Editing, compiling and downloading of customized Go/No-go Test Sequences
· Real-time remote control from the host PC with “virtual DSA-1” GUI
The DSA-1 is a mature and well established solution for testing AES devices and systems and yet remains unique in the marketplace.
The DSA-1 leads the field of AES test devices because it provides a customizable Go/No-go test capability that includes comprehensive coverage of both carrier (bearer signal), data and meta-data tests.
The ability to specify a level of standards conformance and implementation is important because of the complexity of the interface and the wide range of implementation and conformance levels found in practice.
Since its launch in the mid 1990’s, the DSA-1 has gained a strong reputation throughout the pro audio and broadcast industries for its versatility and ease of use. The product was subsequently updated to include a signal generator capability and it is now widely regarded as an invaluable trouble-shooting tool for digital audio equipment and installations.
Being both hand-portable and battery powered makes the DSA-1 ideal for use in installation design, commissioning and support and it provides essential capabilities that help to establish reliable interconnection operating margins.
The latest version 2.20 software features a signal generator in addition to analysis functions, plus a host of extended analysis and logging functions. DSA-1 software upgrades are easily user-installed by a simple serial-download to flash memory.
The new DSA-1 manager software, as well as the DSA-1 V2.20 software and operation manual are available for download from the Prism Sound test and measurement downloads page.
