NEO EN 54-16 Voice Alarm System

The new system NEO is especially designed to fulfill the most stringent requirements of the EN 54-16 and the EN 60849 standards.

NEO is a state of the art, reliable and robust voice alarm system (VA) that ensures an outstanding performance in the most demanding situations.

Its versatility makes it as well a cost-effective and powerful Public Address (PA) and Background Music System (BGM) suitable for all types of venues regardless of its size.

Meets and exceeds the latest safety standards

NEO offers supreme performance and reliability. Created with the most rigorous scheme designs, NEO has specific functions for a complete monitoring of the system, loudspeakers lines and microphones surveillance, backup amplifier automatic switchover, direct management of pre-recorded messages and a front panel with full indicators and manual controls.

Safety above all: In case of evacuation the background music will be automatically switched off per zone to activate priority inputs such as the pre-recorded emergency messages. At the same time, the fireman microphone integrated in the system's front panel or in an outdoor panel, can be rapidly routed to the chosen zones so that authorized personnel could perform a directed evacuation.

In the USA, parents and education professionals have been working hard to ensure that classrooms are not subject to unnecessary noise that interferes with education. One of the most important steps in this effort was the establishment, in June, 2002, of a new standard for classroom acoustics. ANSI/ASA S12.60-2002, developed by the Acoustical Society of America.

LDA Audio Tech, recognizes that the acoustical environment in a classroom or other educational environment is a critical variable in the academic, psychoeducational, and psychosocial development of student. Inappropriate levels of reverberation and/or noise can deleteriously affect speech perception, reading/spelling ability, classroom behavior, attention, concentration, and educational achievement. In addition to compromising student function, poor classroom acoustics may also negatively affect teacher performance and increase vocal pathologies and absenteeism.

Easy installation, configuration and integration

NEO is made under the plug & play philosophy and works over Ethernet standard networks, using protocols such as CobraNet and TCP/IP, without the need for special wiring.

NEO can also be easily integrated with other systems (video and audio intercoms, IP telephony, digital signage systems, etc.) reducing costs, time and efforts.

A more robust distributed system

NEO can be part of a distributed network system where each element intelligently communicates with the others, making the system more robust because it will be up and running matter what happens.

Easily scalable

NEO is suitable for any installation size, whether is a small local system or a big complex multi-zone system.

Thanks to its unique modular design, limitations from outdated systems are over, because with NEO, we can have unlimited inputs and unlimited zones.

Real zone differentiation

NEO offers a real differentiation of zones, allowing audio to be distributed in a personalized and optimized way to each area. In this manner, background music, commercial messages, warnings or any other desired input will reach just the right zones, without disturbing the others.

Guaranteed professional audio quality and intelligibility NEO is at the same time, a professional audio system with an integrated DSP and 24 bits digital audio output per channel, assuring audio quality in any zone.

NEO also incorporates the LDA Dynamic Sound Adjust technology which allows a dynamic volume adjustment in order to always have an intelligible and clear sound.

Management, control and monitoring in the cloud NEO can include the user-friendly IT platform SIME, to easily manage, monitor and control the full system and its components remotely (using a tablet, smartphone, PC or Mac). With SIME, anybody with the appropriate access level can operate NEO in an intuitive way.

Among its many features, SIME offers automatic message scheduling, allowing announcements to be heard always at the right time and place.
