Neutrino

Time-efficient configuration and extensive connectivity options, including Dante, are among the many features of the versatile Neutrino DSP family.

Reflecting Xilica’s enduring passion for digital audio, Neutrino comprises a DCHP-enabled processor series available in four primary I/O model sizes – 8×8, 8×16, 16×8 and 16×16 with Mic/Line, 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 system required by the customer. Accordingly, Neutrino’s drag-and- drop SolaroConsole 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 SolaroConsole software GUI; with the logic input/relay output ports; the optional NeuPanel Series Mini and Touch 7 wall controls; iOS and Android devices via the free SolaroControl apps; 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 (Neutrino A0808-N through A1616-N) 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 processor or Rio interface. In addition, it is possible to use Neutrino-N and Rio interfaces in conjunction with other Dante-enabled brands and devices – making Neutrino entirely in line with the growing global popularity of Dante technology.

Examining other products in the series, the Neutrino-D model versions (A0808-D & A1616-D) provide digital I/O capability of 8×8 AES/EBU channels on a separate connector, while Neutrino-ND combo model versions (Neutrino A0808-ND and A1616-ND) deliver a combination of Dante-enabled network audio I/O (16×16) and digital I/O (8×8 AES/EBU).

The Neutrino A1608-AEC model is essentially the A1608 model with up to 8 x AEC inputs, plus 8 x Mic/Line inputs for conference system applications or anywhere AEC (Acoustic Echo Cancellation) is required. 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 implementation for the time-pressured installer and consultant.
