Collaborate in the cloud with Powersoft ArmonaPlus 2.2

Collaborate in the cloud with Powersoft Armon aPlus 2.2 posted: 13/10/2021

Cloud integration lets users work together in perfect harmony in the new, system-focused update to Powersoft's Armon aPlus software.

Powersoft today announced that version 2.2 of Armon aPlus - a major update which enables integrators to share projects and work collaboratively in the cloud - is now available to download from its website.

The update transforms the already industry adopted system design software by freeing systems integrators, designers and installers from the constraints of local storage, making it possible to access and collaborate on projects remotely from anywhere in the world.

Primarily designed for systems engineers, but available in both Armon aPlus skins (Install and Live Sound), the new feature allows users to save projects in a Microsoft-based cloud, in addition to on a local drive. Project owners are then able to access and work on files remotely from any internet-connected PC, as well as invite their colleagues to collaborate on the project via a simple email link.

A better way to work

When used to share projects, Armon aPlus 2.2 offers an intuitive, user-friendly platform tailor-made for collaboration.

After joining the project and being assigned a specific role (either an editor or full project owner), all collaborators can see the full version history of a cloud project, listed in chronological order. This means installers will always have access to the latest version of the project, even when last-minute changes are needed, while system designers can provide remote support in-application.

The remote storage, which is free for all registered MyPowersoft users, also provides an ideal place to archive projects after completion.

Cloud storage has changed the way people work and has allowed the creation of new ways for us to interact with each other, says Leonardo Weber, Powersoft's product management leader. We wanted to bring this advantage to Powersoft users as well.

Storing and sharing Armon aPlus designs in the cloud will not only allow teams to collaborate during the design and install phases of a project, but will also make remote support much more simple and effective. No more need to be exchanging files by email when support is needed or to be searching for the latest version of a project.

Simple network management

Also introduced with version 2.2 of Armon aPlus is the ability to monitor the status of Powersoft amplifiers via the SNMP protocol.

Ideal for fixed installations with a central monitoring platform, SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) provides systems integrators with information on network devices such as printers, switches and amplifiers. Armon aPlus's implementation of SNMP relays essential data on the status of amplifiers and their operating conditions, including device faults and availability.

Powersoft amplifiers supporting SNMP include Mezzo Series, X Series, T Series, Quattrocanali DSP+D Series, Duecanali DSP+D Series and Ottocanali DSP+D Series.

A Plus-size update

Other innovations introduced with the feature-packed v2.2 upgrade include:

Four zones on four-channel Mezzo: Users of Dynamic Music Distribution (DMD) systems are now able to drive up to four independent zones with a single 324A/AD or 604A/AD amplifier

Mono-mix Dante sharing: distribution of stereo sources as mono mixes in Dante is now available in all Mezzo amplifiers. SIs using DMD can now have more global music sources available for selection in the system reducing the number of channels and flows used

WM Touch network recovery: Users can configure the IP address of a WM Touch, Powersofts wall-mounted touch-screen control solution, from Armon aPlus, even if the device is set in a different subnet

Dante configurations warnings: Armon aPlus will warn users when their system design could exceed the maximum number of Dante flows available. Similarly, the software will display a warning when Armon aPlus users design a system that potentially generates Dante fanout conditions
