A winning combination of audio performance, ease of use and cost-efficiency is offered by Neutrino processors. Neutrino comprises a DHCP-enabled processor series available in four primary I/O model sizes – 8×8, 8×16, 16×8 and 16×16 with Mic/Line and 48V phantom power selection per input and premium grade mic pre-amps.
Neutrino is founded upon the dual-notion of drag-and-drop simplicity and the ability to configure the precise DSP design required by the customer. Accordingly, Neutrino’s drag-and-drop Xilica Designer software can be used to accommodate each project need, and incorporates a GUI that is designed to reduce DSP design time.
Neutrino products can be controlled in a number of ways: via Ethernet using the included Xilica Designer software GUI; with the GPIO ports; the optional NeuPanel Mini wall controls; iOS and Android devices via the free XTouch App; and any third-party controller.
The connectivity capability of the Neutrino models is customizable through a number of different variants. The Neutrino-N model versions provide Audinate Dante-enabled network audio capability.
This makes it possible to digitally transport 16×16 I/O channels of Dante network audio bi-directionally over Ethernet. Dante and analogue audio streams can be converted back to analogue or to Dante network audio using another Neutrino-N DSP, Rio Series interface, or other Dante-enabled device brands.
Examining other models in the series, the Neutrino-D model versions provide digital I/O capability of 8×8 AES/EBU channels, while Neutrino-ND combo model versions deliver a combination of Dante network audio I/O (16×16) and digital I/O (8×8 AES/EBU).
The Neutrino A1608-AEC model (Acoustic Echo Cancellation) provides up to eight AEC mic inputs – configured as four 2ch AEC modules in Xilica Designer. Finally, the Neutrino A1608-AEC-N combo model adds Dante enabled network audio to the AEC model.
Designed to suit a wealth of applications in the commercial integration market, the Neutrino series offers optimum ease of use and entry level drag & drop configured cost-efficiency for integrators and consultants.
