AtlasIED BB-168DT BlueBridge 16 Input x 8 Output DSP Audio Processor with Dante

AtlasIED BlueBridge networkable DSP device is a powerful and flexible tool offering mission-critical solutions to satisfy the exact needs of any installation. Engineered to strict standards with the highest quality internal components, the BlueBridge device provides pure clean audio, Ethernet connectivity for cost-effective TCP/IP control, and easy programmability.


Intended for a variety of audio applications, BlueBridge DSP platforms are cost-effective solutions for the most demanding applications including video conferencing, house of worship, presentation rooms, conference rooms, courtrooms, room combining, restaurants, multi-zone paging, background music, and many other sound reinforcement and AV applications.

Open Architecture and High-Quality Microphone

The BlueBridge family of products features open architecture, drag and drop software that makes them incredibly easy to use. Each model utilizes high-quality microphone preamps and 24 Bit converters to obtain an ultra-low noise floor while still maintaining a smooth sound that satisfies the needs of demanding clients, with the flexibility and control a system designer requires.

Floating Point DSP Engine

BlueBridge models use a 40 Bit Floating Point DSP engine to prevent digital clipping that commonly occurs in other DSP products and to obtain maximum speed and power to process advanced algorithms in complex system designs. BlueBridgeDSP unit can operate on any network while the optional control accessories require a PoE switch.

Connect to Network

BlueBridge devices need to be connected to the network during set-up and if control is required but can be applied in many instances where network control is unnecessary or unavailable like live speech applications. When connected to a network, each BlueBridge processor on the network will be auto recognized and controllable. BlueBridge model provides many valuable processing tools including standard mixers, gain sharing auto-mixers, delays, equalizers, level controls, duckers, filters, and dozens of other processing capabilities.

Inputs and Outputs

This model includes 16 inputs and 8 outputs using Phoenix-style connectors. BlueBridge additionally works with the Atlas BluePanel software which enables the designer to create custom interfaces that can be accessed via a computer connected to the network.

Wall Controllers

BluePanel can also be used to program wall controllers including the BB-TOUCH7 touch panel giving the user access to the system's functionality for volume control, source selection, room combining, or any other function the designer programs. This enables the end-user to have some control over the system without having to access the BlueBridge device directly preventing any unauthorized changes from happening within the device.

Design Templates

AtlasIED offers pre-configured design templates that can be used as starting points for a variety of DSP applications. These design templates are available as part of Atlas' BlueBridge training program which is available to active AtlasIED customers.

Dane Technology

The BB-168DT incorporates Dante technology and is capable of being integrated into new or existing systems that are using a Dante network. This device offers 16 channels of self-configuring, true plug-and-play digital audio over an Ethernet network providing the highest quality audio over existing network infrastructure.
