ALWAYS IN CONTROL
In addition to remote controllers, GPIO and 3rd party integration, AHM-16 has a front panel screen and 4x programmable SoftKeys for intuitive volume control, source select, preset recall and more.

SOUND MANAGEMENT

  • Automatic Mic Mixer
  • ANC (Ambient Noise Compensation)
  • Priority Ducking
  • 8-band PEQ, dynamics and delay on every input and zone
  • Speaker processing with x-over filter, delay, limiter and PEQ

SIMPLY SCALABLE
AHM is a family of powerful Audio Matrix Processors supported by a comprehensive ecosystem of scalable I/O, control and Dante solutions. Designed to excel in corporate, retail, hospitality and education environments, AHM matrix processors allow integrators to quickly create systems that build from a single boardroom to a complete campus.

UNCOMPROMISED POWER AND FLEXIBILITY
AHM processors deploy next-generation FPGA technology and 96kHz sample rate, bringing acclaimed Allen and Heath sound quality and sub-millisecond latency to installation. The audio engines have the power to deliver far more processing than the usual open architecture platforms, including 8-band PEQ, gate, compressor and delay on all input channels, and 8-band PEQ, 30-band GEQ, compressor, ANC, source selector, limiter and delay on all zone outputs.

SLink* allows plug 'n play connection to up to 8 remote expanders from Allen and Heath’s extensive Everything I/O range, which includes wall mount, rack and portable options. With hundreds of routable system inputs and outputs, AHM can cater for projects ranging from a single room to large, distributed spaces.

*SLink port built-in on AHM-64, SLink option card for AHM-32 and AHM-16

A WORLD OF CONTROL
An AHM system can be controlled using our range of remote controllers, GPIO and 3rd party devices. With up to 96 IP remote controllers over a standard TCP/IP network, every room can enjoy local volume control, source select and preset recall.

CUSTOM CONTROL APP
Designing the perfect user interface for each type of user has never been so easy. Custom Control is a customizable, cross-platform control app, providing elegant, bespoke control over an AHM system.

AHM SYSTEM MANAGER
The intuitive AHM System Manager software and AHM’s flexible architecture allow rapid configuration, with no certified programming training required. AHM matrix processors strike a balance between the simplicity and set latency of fixed architecture, and the flexibility normally reserved for open architecture platforms, allowing them to handle sound management, paging, audio distribution, conferencing and speaker processing roles.

Channels view
Horizontal signal-flow and processing diagram, with clear visibility of what is available, what is / isn’t active, and mouse-over real time audio monitoring.

Assign view
Zoomable matrix view for I/O and routing, with optional level and mute indication, and including Tieline patching and Zone to Zone routing for unparalleled flexibility.
