Music Page Interface - 6 (MPI-6)

Lencore’s Emerald Technology Music Page Interface - 6 (MPI-6), similar to the Music Page Interface (MPI), replaces all the bulky head-end equipment that is associated with music and paging systems. However, Emerald Technology adds significant benefits to the system. The MPI-6 allows for more (up to six) audio input sources, eliminates the need for relays, adds more equalizer capacity for audio channels and more.

With the MPI-6 there is no need for additional cable home-runs, amplifiers, separate equalizers, special switching equipment or matching vendors for compatible product interfaces. The MPI-6’s technology is so sophisticated that it can allow zone additions, modifications, deletions and other changes to the Mass Notification and Emergency Communication (MNEC) solution or paging system on the fly, without rewiring. This eliminates the need for running multiple home runs back to the electrical closet or through building risers to create separate or additional zones.

The Emerald Music Page Interface - 6 has all of the same benefits of the MPI with the addition of:

  • More audio input sources (6)
  • Contains an additional 11 relay inputs/outputs
  • Controls strobes
  • Inputs for controls
  • Monitors and displays information on input source feeds
  • Additional equalizer capacity for audio channels

The MPI allows the ability to use up to 99 individual zones for paging using standard DTMF tones through a POTS telephone line. The system is also programmed for all-call and emergency broadcast paging. The system’s easy to use full one octave band equalizer can be adjusted to either individual zones or all zones and provides exceptional fine tuning capabilities.

The creation, modification, addition and deletion of zones or groups for mass notification and emergency communications and paging can be easily controlled through the i.LON’s® web browser using the included Lencore Sound Manager. No proprietary software needs to be installed on the client’s side, eliminating security and migration issues. The Lencore n.Form System is an open platform system. In addition, volume and equalizer settings for paging and music can be programmed through the Sound Manager or Spectra i.Net® Reports offering tremendous adjustment and control capabilities with unprecedented flexibility. 

Adaptive Equalization: The unmatched capabilities and superior paging quality of Lencore’s system automatically compensates and readjusts for frequency line loss while ensuring a quality signal that is continuously and uniformly broadcast and distributed throughout the entire system.  Essentially this means that throughout the miles of audio wire, line loss will be virtually negligible. This results in a crystal clear page whenever you need it, wherever you are in your facility.

The MPI unit typically installs in the Telephone or IT closet. The MPI accepts a POTS line for all-call and zoned telephone paging. In addition, there are left and right audio inputs for music, all-call page, microphone input and testing input.

Local/Global Music Page Interface (MPI)


MPI Local / Global

Lencore’s Local Music Page Interface (MPI) allows for priority paging and replaces all the bulky head end equipment that is typically associated with music and paging systems.  When connected to Lencore’s Spectra i.Net® System, programming can be set for up to 1.5 million square feet.  The MPI allows the ability to use up to 99 individual zones for paging, using standard DTMF tones.  The system is also programmed for all-call emergency broadcast paging. 

Utilizing a client’s existing telephone system (with open ports across multiple buildings), the Global MPI allows a user to send an all-call page to every connected building at once.  This allows real time communication for company or campus wide announcements. 

However, in the case of a localized emergency the system’s tiered paging provides for a top priority, emergency microphone page override per station.

The unmatched capabilities of the Global/Local MPI combination allows for crystal clear broadcasts and emergency communications, regardless of whether the facilities are located across the street from each other, across the country or around the world.  

When used with Lencore’s Spectra i.Net® System, the user friendly web interface allows for secure 24/7 access to the system and the ability to view system settings, set timed events, and run system diagnostics from virtually anywhere.

The Spectra i.Net® MPI incorporates Point Z™ technology allowing each individual speaker channel to carry up to 10 programmable zones. Paging has never been so versatile & clean.

The creation, modification, addition and deletion of zones or groups for paging and masking can be easily controlled through the i.LON’s® web browser using the included Lencore Sound Manager. No proprietary software needs to be installed on the client’s side, eliminating security and migration issues. The Lencore Spectra i.Net® System is an open platform system. In addition, volume and equalizer settings for paging and music can be programmed through the Sound Manager or Spectra i.Net® Reports offering tremendous adjustment and control capabilities with unprecedented flexibility.
