Bogen Announces C4000 IP-based Commercial Paging and Audio Distribution System
Software-centric system leverages company's Nyquist technology platform

May 7, 2018, Mahwah, NJ -- InfoComm booth C1162 – Today, Bogen Communications, Inc., announced the introduction of its first IP-based, software-centric communications system optimized for commercial paging and audio distribution applications. The C4000 solution follows on the heels of Bogen’s award-winning education-focused E7000 system that debuted at InfoComm 2017. Both products leverage Bogen’s Nyquist software platform that provides users with unparalleled flexibility and scalability in whatever their application. The C4000 system addresses the unique communication needs of a variety of users: industrial facilities, transportation hubs, retailers, offices, restaurants, and bars — anywhere easy and effective communication and audio distribution are required.

The heart of the C4000 solution is a robust, state-of-the-art system controller with an easy to use web-based graphical user interface (GUI) that is accessible through any PC, tablet, or mobile device from any location in the connected world. The solution features a built-in, streaming Internet radio service, airable by Tune In. Business users can also access commercially licensed, customizable music stations from SoundMachine, the premier music subscription service for business. Both services are perfect for a wide variety of background music applications. SoundMachine gives large and small retailers, restaurants, bars, or any other company looking to enhance their customer experience the ability to craft a seamless, engaging, and on-brand music experience.

Available feature-rich IP phones and purpose-built networked appliances provide convenient communication, control, and interoperability with third-party devices and systems such as access control, fire alarm, clock, and PBX systems. Available networked appliances include seven new audio power amplifiers, ranging from 1-channel x 20 Watts to 4-channel x 300 Watts, as well as a 4-channel matrix mixer/pre-amp. A versatile new 10 Watt plenum-rated intercom module with optional HDMI video output allows users to turn any speaker into an IP speaker for even greater site design flexibility.

The C4000 solution is extremely easy to install and use. Its web-based GUI allows people with a broad spectrum of technical proficiency to use the system. The C4000 solution can be scaled to support multiple, geographically dispersed facilities, encompassing a virtually unlimited number of paging and audio zones. Talkback capability is available for any areas requiring two-way communications. The solution can be easily upgraded with new features over time to address ever-changing customer environments and technology.

“The E7000 IP-based school intercom system we introduced last year has been a big success. Dealers and end users have been delighted with the system's scalability, ease of use, web-based accessibility, and design flexibility,” explained Bogen’s product manager Ken Venuti. “We believe that commercial users will value the same attributes that our Nyquist platform brings to this new C4000 solution. The built-in SoundMachine customizable music offering, which is facilitated through airable’s API, is the best streaming service for commercial settings we've seen, and we are excited that they chose Bogen as a partner.”

Bogen expects the C4000 system will start shipping to commercial contractors and distributors in the third quarter of 2018.

Bogen will be conducting live demonstrations of the Nyquist C4000 system in booth # C1162 at InfoComm 2018.
