Music Page Interface (MPI)
Lencore’s Music Page Interface (MPI) replaces all the bulky head-end equipment that that is associated with music and paging systems, eliminating the need for:
- additional cable home-runs
- separate equalizers
- special switching equipment
- matching vendors for compatible product interfaces
This sophisticated technology allows for zone additions, modifications, deletions and other changes to the paging system on the fly, without rewiring, eliminating the need for running multiple home runs back to the electrical closet or through building risers to create separate or additional zones.
The MPI allows the ability to use up to 99 individual zones for paging using standard DTMF tones through a POTS telephone line. The system is also programmed for all-call and emergency broadcast paging. The system’s easy to use full one octave band equalizer can be adjusted to either individual zones or all zones and provides exceptional fine tuning capabilities.
- When the MPI is connected to the Spectra i.Net’s® web appliance (i.LON®), programming can be set for up to 1.5 million square feet of space through a single device.
- The Spectra i.Net® MPI incorporates Point Z™ technology allowing each individual speaker channel to carry up to 10 programmable zones. Paging has never been so versatile & clean.
The creation, modification, addition and deletion of zones or groups for paging and masking can be easily controlled through the i.LON’s® web browser using the included Lencore Sound Manager. No proprietary software needs to be installed on the client’s side, eliminating security and migration issues. The Lencore Spectra i.Net® System is an open platform system. In addition, volume and equalizer settings for paging and music can be programmed through the Sound Manager or Spectra i.Net® Reports offering tremendous adjustment and control capabilities with unprecedented flexibility.
Adaptive Equalization: The unmatched capabilities and superior paging quality of Lencore’s system automatically compensates and readjusts for frequency line loss while ensuring a quality signal that is continuously and uniformly broadcast and distributed throughout the entire system. Essentially this means that throughout the miles of audio wire, line loss will be virtually negligible. This results in a crystal clear page whenever you need it, wherever you are in your facility.
The MPI unit typically installs in the Telephone or IT closet. The MPI accepts a POTS line for all-call and zoned telephone paging. In addition, there are left and right audio inputs for music, all-call page, microphone input and testing input.
