New Composer Software 2.5 now Available for HARVEY®

PLSN Staff • Product News • June 11, 2020


NORTH AMERICA – A.C. ProMedia’s business partner DSPECIALISTS GmbH is continuously working on performance improvements and developing new features for the HARVEY® product family. DSPECIALISTS emphasizes the easy way to configure HARVEY® for various applications and focusses on a convenient set up of complex tasks of a project within a few minutes. During ISE 2020 in Amsterdam DSPECIALISTS showcased “HARVEY AMP”, HYPERMATRIX® configuration software, HARVEY’s remote controls, as well as the next configuration software release for the HARVEY® product line.

More details from AC ProMedia (

The new Composer software 2.5 fully supports the new Remote Control RC12, which DSPECIALISTS presented as a prototype at the ISE 2020 in Amsterdam. The RC12 can select channels in a HARVEY device, call up presets, or trigger sending of commands, via the serial interface or the IP network, using its 12 freely programmable buttons. This feature makes it possible to control other devices in a network easily, for example, starting a projector. RC12 can be used for source selection and can indicate the active channel via its push-button colors. It is also possible to define complete color schemes for all push-buttons for different scenarios.

With a new H-Text command “store preset” it is possible to save an active parameter set into a preconfigured preset. With this new command, users can store on an external network device, light scenes, volume settings, or matrix configuration within an existing installation, which can then be recalled later.


The DSP performance of the matrix operations in HARVEY Pro devices has more than doubled with the new HARVEY Pro firmware version 2.5. The DSP load indication is always based on the latest firmware. It is recommended to upgrade older versions. HARVEY Composer will let you know of a firmware upgrade whenever it is connected to a device running outdated firmware.


The software can be installed on any PC without using a HARVEY device. In this way, the user can test or pre-program different setups easily. Find the latest software and firmware upgrades, including the control code for RC12, available to download for free on DSPECIALISTS website
