Bose Professional will use InfoComm 2016 to introduce its new ControlCenter zone controllers. The ControlCenter series is a set of remote controls for use with Bose FreeSpace amplifiers, PowerShare amplifiers and ControlSpace processors.
The three models are: ControlCenter CC-1, providing volume control; ControlCenter CC-2, offering volume plus A/B source selection; and ControlCenter CC-3, offering volume plus A/B/C/D source selection.
The interface has been designed to be intuitive and easy-to-use, making it simple to configure all ControlCenter units with FreeSpace, PowerShare or ControlSpace products. Three ControlCenter models are available in either black or white and all models fit in 1-gang electrical box sizes in Europe, North America and Japan and and can be daisy-chained to reduce wiring.
Also being introduced is the Bose ControlCenter CV41 4-to-1 converter, which simplifies wiring when using multiple ControlCenter CC-1 zone controllers with a PS602 or PS604 PowerShare amplifier. The CV41 converter supports up to four CC-1 controllers, allowing each CC-1 to homerun to the amplifier.
The European model is supplied as a finished wall plate in an 86×86 mm size commonly used throughout Europe, UK and Asia, while the North American and Japanese models are designed for use with Decora-style wall plates.
The new products are expected to ship in July 2016.
