Passion Through Performance  Xilica’s mantra, but also a phrase deeply synonymous with live sound. Whether it’s concert sound, immersive club nights, or a global tour, live sound demands ultra-high-performance, and ultra-high-reliability. Only then can you truly create an incredible experience.

Well, X2 lives up to this phrase. And more.

Curated from the ground-up to meet the rigorous needs of daily production, X2 by Xilica is a 2U powerhouse based on a dual-core, Linux® backbone, paired with the exceptional performance of 96kHz sampling, high-fidelity microphone pre-amps, a 32-bit converter, and Xilica’s renowned 40-bit floating point DSP engine. Plus, add to this hardware the live audio experience gained over the past two-decades by Xilica engineers: first with the revolutionary DLP processor series, and later with the legacy XD live sound units, and you’ve got yourself a box with an awful lot of bang.

But it’s not all about the specs.

Technically, X2 is in a class of its own. But, what Xilica really loves about this new, next-generation live sound DSP is its modularity. Just like the Solaro Series, X2’s installation-centric ‘big brother’, X2 is completely card-slot. With eight slots available in the base X2 DSP Frame, you can pick-and-mix to get just the right combination for your event – no wasted I/O, no wasted budget. Choose your custom selection from a portfolio of analog in (with switchable 48V Phantom), analog out, and immersive AES/EBU digital audio. Add a 64×64 Dante™ card into the mix, and you’ve got yourself a DSP that delivers incredible connectivity between over 1,500 Dante-enabled products from more than 400 manufacturers.

Control, your way.

With a plethora of control surfaces, you can direct your DSP just how you want. No fiddling around on the front-panel against a darkened rack. Just slide out your smartphone and take advantage of the free Xilica iOS and Android app — or, reap the benefits of the PC & Mac-based Xilica Designer software: both to make real-time adjustments to your DSP schematic, and to deliver control options on the fly. Want something more physical? X2 is natively compatible with Xilica’s XTouch™ glass-to-glass touch screens, available purely in black. Utilize an XTouch50 with a 5″ display, or an XTouch80 with 8″ of control surface, and mount them either horizontally or vertically for a user-centric command solution. All-new XWP wall-panels are also available, if you need to install your X2 product for a longer amount of time. 

Future-proofing: it’s key.

What if you want more than eight (8) I/O Option Cards in your X2 product? Well, X2 is natively compatible with the Solaro XIO Series of Modular I/O Expansion Frames. Run a link to one of these, and you’ve opened yourself up to either a 1/4 rack-width, or a full-rack-width expansion module with another eight (Solaro XIO 8) or 16 (Solaro XIO 16) card-slots respectively. X2 I/O Option Cards differ to those of the Solaro Series, in that they are 2U, not 1U. X2 I/O Option Cards include: X2ML-I, a two-channel Mic/Line input card with switchable 48V Phantom power (selectable, per input); the X2L-O, a two-channel Line level output card, and the X2AES-IO, a two-channel AES/EBU digital audio input/output card (selectable, via software).

We play nice with others.

Xilica Designer®, our programming software, opens up integrators to incredible ease. Third-party Dante device programming is simple, with built-in native integration with products from Powersoft, Bose, Yamaha, Sanyo, NEC, RCF and Adamson, to name just a few. And, if your preferred Dante brand isn’t listed, you can simply drop in the Generic Dante Device module to wire everything up in moments. There’s no need for Dante Controller either, as Designer packs many of its features into the programming window.

Plus, just when you thought set-up couldn’t get any easier… Xilica offers pre-designed DSP templates from its online library. In a hurry? Need to setup your DSP for common applications fast? Well, log on to xilica.com, download your template, and get to work.

Xilica offers extensive support for the networking technology in its range. For example, the Rio Series of Dante-enabled I/O interfaces can be used to provide additional flexibility not only for Dante-enabled Neutrino-N processor models, but also as standalone interface devices with other Dante-enabled brands.

When the Rio Series is used in conjunction with Dante-enabled Xilica processors, the user has the advantage of being able to configure and manage all Dante devices from within the Xilica Designer software, removing the need to also use the Dante Controller software.

At the present time the Rio Series features six interface models. The newest Rio models include the R22-P, R44-P, R22-WP-X, and R22-WP-M models, which join the original Rio R1616-N and R1616-NX models. All models provide bi-directional Dante network audio transport – analog audio input, conversion, and transport over network cable and Dante network audio to analog audio breakout.

Available with a number of mounting options, the R22-P (2×2 I/O) and R44-P (4×4 I/O) models are 1/4 rack chassis size Dante interface devices. The front panel of both models provides Dip switch selection of Mic or Line input and 48V Phantom power on a per input basis, as well as an RJ45 Dante network audio connector with power and network status LEDs.

The rear of each model provides two or four analogue audio outputs on 3.5mm Euro connectors and a 12VDC external power supply connection. The external power supply is included, although it is also possible to power the device using PoE.

Elsewhere in the range, the R22-WP-X and R22-WP-M models are 2×2 analogue / 2×2 Dante I/O interface panels on a 2 gang sized flush or surface mount wall plate (surface mount back box included). The R22-WP-X wall plate model provides XLR analogue I/O connections only, while the R22-WP-M model provides a mix of XLR, dual RCA (L+R), and stereo 3.5mm (L+R) analogue I/O connections. Both models can be powered with a PoE switch or router, or via the included external power supply.

Finally, the R1616-N is a full size, 1RU, 19”rack-mount Dante interface providing 16×16 I/O channels of Dante network audio and 16×16 I/O channels of analogue audio on Phoenix connectors, with the R1616-NX model being 2RU in height and providing XLR I/O connections.

Taken as a whole, the Rio range makes it possible to support even the most complex Dante-based network environment with ease.

Solaro FR1 was designed from the ground-up to offer unbeatable power and performance, without costing the earth. From it’s ultra-powerful dual core processor, new-generation Linux® operating system and easy-to-configure open-architecture framework, to its 16 individual field-swappable card slots — Solaro FR1 is designed to allow integrators, specifiers and end-users unlimited creativity.

Say hello to your new best friend.

Everything about this processor is centered on removing the challenges of specifying and installing digital signal processing products. Frictionless and completely-customizable I/O counts are easy with Solaro: simply opt for any one of the available analog audio, Dante™, AES/EBU, AEC and GPIO cards, and push it into the rear card slots until it’s secure. No need for wires, screwdrivers or messy connections.

Solaro Series I/O option cards are available in 2-channel analog audio in, 2-channel analog audio out, 2-channel AES/EBU digital audio, 4-channel GPIO, and AEC available at low-latencies of 250ms (eight channel) and 100ms (16 channels), with softkey activation. A user-installable rear module is available to provide legendary Dante networked audio, opening up 64×64 Dante channels that can send audio between over 1,500 Dante-enabled products from more than 400 manufacturers.

And, if you need more than 16 card slots to complete your ideal system, add an all-new Solaro XIO expansion device, built on the same modular framework, and using the very same I/O option cards.

Breaking the mould.

Solaro Series allows integrators and specifiers to ignore manufacturer dictations about I/O combinations and instead focus on exactly what’s right for their project, without expensive over-functionality. Additionally, Solaro FR1 acts as a unique cost-saver to futureproof installations  should requirements change in the future, field-swappable cards can be changed for a different configuration, or new I/O optionality can be added  either through unused card slots, or through the addition of an XIO expansion product.

Large integrators, enterprise customers and global distributors have already voiced their support for the Solaro Series’ modular focus: eliminating the need to stock mountains of different I/O configurations and a never-ending list of SKUs, wait on backorders, and discount stock to boost cashflow. With Solaro FR1, simply buy the frame, choose your cards, and configure to your exact needs. Each and every project.

Is that sound live, or is it just Solaro?

As a proud member of the Xilica family of processors, Solaro boasts the very same studio sound quality that’s been present since our inception. Premium grade microphone pre-amps, selectable 48kHz or 96kHz sampling rates, and advanced audio tools such as FIR filters make the Solaro FR1 a supreme choice for applications requiring high-fidelity audio quality, especially when paired with its 40-bit floating-point processor.

There’s no need for Dante Controller either, as Designer packs many of its features into the programming window. Finally, Enhanced Third-Party Control allows professionals to control anything they have the control string for  from blinds, windows and doors, to HVAC and even DMX lighting. Many leading integrators use Xilica Designer as the base from which they configure an entire networked AV system  and we don’t blame them.

Solaro FR1 is not compatible with legacy NeuPanel Series controls, nor is it recommended to develop a networked system with both FR1 and Neutrino products.

A new range of high-quality touch controls that deliver simple, user-intuitive command capabilities, XTouch™  products boast low power consumption, exceptional off-axis viewing, high-definition, and high-contrast functionality.

With the reliability and ease-of-installation demanded by today’s integrators, XTouch features 5″ and 8″ touch panels which can be both vertically- and horizontally-mounted for optimal convenience. Installation is simple, with one-stop, drag-and-drop programming through Xilica Designer® giving ease-of-use and reduced design time for integration professionals — plus no need for knowledge of code and graphic design.

And, as XTouch devices reside on a standard Ethernet network alongside accompanying Solaro™ or Neutrino™ units, their displays can be readily updated by integrators at any moment, with no periods of downtime. Conveniently, PoE functionality allows for discreet positioning, with no need for external power supplies and trailing cables.

In addition, flexible mounting options open XTouch models up to a range of use cases, enabling integrators to deliver a consistent control surface experience across rooms – from the boardroom, utilising a dedicated XTouch80 with table-top stand; to corridors and lobbies, with the vertical mounting function of the XTouch50. For micro meeting rooms, such as BYOD booths, integrators can opt to mount the smaller XTouch50 horizontally – delivering ample space for room AV functionality whilst keeping surfaces clutter-free.

The XTouch50 mounts into a standard US/EU/UK 1-gang back-box or low voltage bracket using the included mounting hardware. Meanwhile, the XTouch80, being larger, suits a US 2-gang back-box, or 2-gang low voltage bracket using the included mounting hardware. XTouch80 products are complimented by an optional table-top mounting stand, available to order separately.

Both the XTouch50 and XTouch80 are available solely in black, delivering a sleek and high-quality glass-to-glass appearance.
