TOA’s IP-A1SC15 IP-Horn Speaker can be added to a DW Spectrum IPVMS system using a local network connection. The integration will offer the option to combine the speaker system with video from the DW Spectrum desktop client interface. The IP horn speaker broadcasts crystal-clear pre-recorded voice messages or live speech announcements manually and automatically triggered by IP camera video alerts, image sensing, or motion detection video systems.


“The IP-A1SC15 is capable of SIP Direct Call, Multicast streaming, VMS broadcasting, and, in addition to control by the DW Spectrum IPVMS system, an IP control protocol is available as well. TOA software tools allow you to assign IP addresses to all IP horn speakers at set up by merely setting the first speaker network and host ID. All other device IP addresses are set automatically. Each IP-A1SC15 can be individually optimized to its unique environment.”
