Digital audio vendor Euphonix unveiled its new DF66 DSP SuperCore processing engine for the Euphonix range of broadcast and audio post mixing systems at IBC 2006, Amsterdam. (September 8-12).
The new digital processing engine works with both Max Air and System 5-B/BP broadcast consoles and is also available for the Euphonix System 5-F/P audio post models.
Euphonix says the new DSP SuperCore is an extremely powerful and modular DSP system, which supports dual-redundant power supplies, and an optional 100% redundant DSP SuperCore system.
This failover redundancy system allows for a completely redundant, backup DF66 DSP core to run in parallel with a primary DSP core. In the event of a failure, the entire DF66 audio path, including all I/O devices and router, is switched over to the backup system.
The DF66 DSP Core is a 4U chassis, and provides the primary signal- processing engine for the System 5 and Max Air digital-audio mixing consoles. It is comprised of a system board and up to six plug-in SP662 DSP cards. Although the DF66 design is optimized for typical audio mixing applications, the hardware itself is actually a highly flexible platform for real-time DSP, signal I/O, and routing between these functions. This technology will enable a wide variety of potential future applications. Key aspects of the design are scalability, modularity, serviceability, reliability, and outstanding audio performance.
The DF66 DSP Core is just one of a number of new innovative products in the Euphonix digital audio stable.
Privately-owned, Euphonix was founded in 1988 in Silicon Valley, California.
Euphonix has built a reputation for supplying innovative equipment to the large format digital audio console users in broadcast, production and post production activities.
