State-of-the-art technology and innovative features

X_CORE Engine

It is an audio matrix, mixer, processor and distributor for broadcast. It works as the engine of a console or set of ATRIUM consoles. It can also work as a general purpose audio matrix, as an intercom matrix, or with combined functionalities.

Each matrix, X_CORE for Atrium, depending on configuration, can handle up to 1,024 audio inputs and outputs.

It is fully modular and redundant: redundancy options in controller, DSP cards and power supply.

Its inputs and outputs are through cards: AES/EBU, analog line, microphone and headphones, MADI and proprietary links of more than 1000 channels, among others.

Using AoIP Dante/AES67 cards with 64 inputs and outputs, we can include IP audio inputs and outputs from other consoles or specific interfaces.

It can include IP audio inputs and outputs from equipment with RAVENNA, SMPTE ST 2110-30 and SMPTE ST 2110-31 protocols.

By means of dual SDI cards, we can include in the matrix, inputs and outputs to extract and reintroduce SDI embedded audio.
