The Peavey 3510460 NION n6 is a programmable digital audio processing node designed for professional and commercial audio and communications applications. Coupled with 6 floating-point DSPs and the industry's most efficient audio algorithms, the NION n6 extends the world-class power of MediaMatrix to levels never seen before. The internal processing core is supported by a wide range of features including MediaMatrix's Scalable I/O Architecture, a modular I/O scheme that supports a variety of optional plug-in cards for maximum versatility. The four module bays support up to 64 simultaneous analog audio channels using NIO-AES cards (or up to 32 channels using 8 channel Nio cards). The integrated CobraNet or Dante port provides another 64 channels, for a total of 128 simultaneous configurable audio channels.
The NION n6 is built on an embedded Linux architecture designed for stable, efficient and robust performance. A 448-channel digital audio bus allows for seamless stacking and redundant, self-healing configurations. Low-latency audio across all I/O ports makes NION perfect for performance audio projects, in addition to applications where a large amount of audio processing is required. Software support includes a Windows-based interface that works with multiple nodes across an Ethernet network. Additional support for third party control and SNMP management tools is included.
An intuitive front panel interface features an LCD display, soft buttons and rotary encoder to enable access to common system functions. Additional control interfacing is provided by both RS-232 and EIA-422/485 ports, while a configurable GPIO system makes interfacing with hard-contacts and logic systems easier than ever
