Hospitality and dining applications are always guest-centred. Naturally, it’s important that an audio system reflects that, and delivers immersive, high-quality sound across hotel ballrooms, communal areas, bars and restaurants.
With Xilica’s well-honed DSP algorithms, Solaro, Neutrino and X Series products feature a wide range of processing capabilities including auto-mixing, feedback elimination, FIR and IIR filters, AGC, compression, limiting, loudspeaker management, and AEC to name just a few. Additionally, Xilica processors run on 40-bit floating point DSPs with 96kHz sampling rates, helping maintain high fidelity audio. Manufactured in the company’s internal production facility, each unit is individually quality tested prior to shipment — ensuring restaurants, ballrooms and discussion facilities enjoy outstanding audio quality with high uptime, and end-users enjoy a quick and comprehensive line of support should any surprises occur.
Moreover, for restaurants and ballrooms with vastly-spread facilities, Solaro Series and select Xilica Neutrino products feature Audinate’s patented Dante audio networking. Such technology allows audio signal to be sent over standard IT infrastructure — both minimising installation time and reducing expenditure for heavy, copper analog cable. Dante’s fluency with IT also allows a hotel’s in-house IT department to manage audio-visual networks in their entirety, limiting maintenance and service overheads and increasing availability of immediate on-premises support. With distributed venues, XIO modular I/O expansion frames or Rio series remote wall-plates, stage boxes and rack-mount I/O solutions can help carry signal from private dining rooms, bars, main restaurants, performance areas and ballrooms to the central rack, helping increase end-user flexibility about what and where they can connect to the system.
Perhaps most critically for applications where specially-trained staff are not common, such as in hospitality and dining venues, Xilica makes user control simple. Control interfaces are completely-programmable in the XTouch touch-screen controls, NeuPanel low-cost Mini Series wall-panels and free Android and iOS XTouchApp provide the means for any room, any authorised user, and any budget to have accessible, user-intuitive command over integrator-defined channels. Moreover, when such integrators also install third-party compatible products from brands including Audio-Technica, Powersoft and Bose, they can also enjoy reduced installation and commissioning times through native device integration with Xilica’s programming software, Xilica Designer.
Overall, Xilica products enable hospitality and dining facilities to indulge in immersive audio, flexibly delivered — on time, and on budget.
