Overview
The Soundweb Contrio EC-4BV is an Ethernet wall controller
for use in HARMAN HiQnet systems. The EC-4BV can control and monitor parameters within BSS Audio Soundweb London and other HiQnet devices, including Crown DriveCore Install Series amplifiers. The EC-4BV is available in black or white, and in single-gang US decora or single-gang EU form factor. The EC-4BV contains a single Ethernet port for configuration, control, monitoring, and power via PoE. The EC-4BV is configured via simple drag-and-drop operations within the software application HiQnet Audio Architect.

The EC-4BV contains one push/rotary encoder, one encoder ring, four buttons, and one LCD screen. The buttons, encoder ring, and LCD screen are multicolor backlit, capable of eight different colors with adjustable intensity.

The push/rotary encoder can be rotated for continuous parameter control (e.g. volume). The push/rotary encoder can also be pressed for binary parameter control (e.g. mute) or preset recall. The encoder ring can display a bouncing audio meter. When the push/rotary encoder is rotated, the encoder ring can temporarily display a volume setting. When the push/rotary encoder is pressed, the encoder ring can temporarily display a binary parameter setting (e.g. red/green for muted/unmuted status).

The four buttons can be pressed for binary parameter control (e.g. mute), preset recall, or source selection.

The LCD screen has a screen resolution of 64 x 128 pixels, and can display custom text and graphics.

The EC-4BV supports ‘sleep’ functionality. After a specified amount of time with no user input, the EC-4BV can turn off all LEDs. This is useful to avoid distraction in a dimly lit environment. Any user interaction will ‘wake up’ the controller.

The EC-4BV can be remotely locked and unlocked via other control systems. The EC-4BV can be locally unlocked via a four-digit PIN entry on the buttons.

The EC-4BV supports multiple modes of operation. This allows the push/rotary encoder and encoder ring to be reassigned dynamically to different parameters based on which buttons are selected.

Simple & Affordable Cabling
The EC-4BV is an Ethernet device, powered via PoE
(Power over Ethernet). This means that power and control is passed over a single connected Cat 5e cable.

HiQnet Compatibility
In addition to being able to control Soundweb London parameters, the EC-4BV is able to control other HiQnet devices, including the Crown DriveCore Install Series amplifiers.

Sleep Function
After a specified amount of time with no user input, the EC-4BV can turn off all LEDs. This is useful to avoid distraction in a dimly lit environment. Any user interaction will ‘wake up’ the controller.

Multicolored Feedback
The EC-4BV has 4 multicolored buttons, 4 corresponding multicolored screen positions and a multicolored encoder ring. 8 unique colors (red, yellow, green, cyan, blue, magenta, white and amber) can be used to signify different zones and their associated parameters. The maximum intensity of the LEDs can be adjusted to suit ambient light levels.

Lockout Function
The EC-4BV can be locked during the Sleep Function or at any other time. A 4-digit PIN must be entered in order to unlock the controller.

Encoder and Encoder Ring
Normally, the encoder ring will show a bouncing meter for the currently selected zone. When a volume adjustment is made, the encoder ring will show the volume level in the appropriate zone color. After a timeout, the encoder ring returns to showing the bouncing meter. On/off color states can be assigned to the push function. The first push of the encoder will show the current state of the assigned parameter on the whole encoder ring and any subsequent push will toggle the state of the parameter.

Buttons
A dimly illuminated button indicates an available
source, preset or parameter. A brightly illuminated button indicates a currently selected source, preset
or parameter. Sources, presets and parameters are represented in the appropriate zone color.

Color Options
The EC-4BV is available in black or white to fit elegantly within its surroundings.

Shape Options
The EC-4BV is available in single-gang decora or single-gang EU shapes.
