Allen & Heath has developed the PL Designer and PL Client software for its new iDR DSP audio system, allowing the user to design and operate virtual "wall plates."

The software runs on Windows operating systems and provides the user with PC remote control of the iDR system over an Ethernet link, which can be used in place of, or in combination with, the hardware PL range of wall plates.

The PL Designer application allows the installer to configure virtual wall plates to control all of the functions of the iDR system, including input and output levels, zoning facilities and paging systems, as well as triggering external systems interfacing with the iDR such as curtains, lighting, alarms, a jukebox or CD player. The installer can set the functions to be controlled by the end-user and also limit certain functions that may harm the system. The saved configuration can be opened in PL Client, the access package that provides the end-user with control of the iDR system, through a single PC or multiple-networked computers.

PL Designer and PL Client are bundled with a new release of the iDR System Manager software (Version 3.2) and accessed through a link in the Toolbar menu.

Further information and a free trial download of V. 3.2 is available at PL Client runs free of charge for 10 days. Thereafter, a key to enable the software to be used permanently is available to buy online.
