Architect and Engineer Specifications
The device shall provide four inputs that are selectable as line or mic level with phantom power and four line level outputs. All signal processing, mixing and routing functions (including input gains) shall be controllable via software. Audio inputs and outputs shall be accessed via rear panel 3.81 mm terminal block connectors.
The Graphical User Interface (GUI) software shall be installer programmable using the Windows® XP or higher operating system. Computer connection and control shall be via the device’s rear panel Ethernet connector. The GUI shall provide the management of apps, device files and display and control of all signal processing and configuration functions including, but not limited to: Input and Output Gain • Highpass Filtering • Lowpass Filtering • FIR Filters • Crossovers • Parametric Equalization • Graphic Equalization • Expansion • De-Essing • Compression • Limiting • Automatic Gain Control • Ambient Noise Compensation • Feedback Elimination • Automatic Mixing • Priority Mixing • Signal Routing • Delay • Polarity.
The front panel shall include input and output signal level indicators as well as indicators for POWER, NETWORK, and ARC.
External control shall include preset selection as well as I/O level control and muting, and shall be via industry-standard CAT5 cable with RJ45 connectors using the optional ARC wall panel remote controls. All program memory shall be non-volatile and provide program security should power fail. The device shall provide an on board real time clock to facilitate automatic, timed changing of presets. Third-party control systems may interface over IP using a published ASCII control protocol.
Audio conversion shall be 24-bit, 48 kHz. The dynamic range of the processor shall not be lower than 110 dB A-weighted.
The device shall have a captive power input socket for an external 24 VDC supply. The device shall meet UL/CSA and CE safety requirements and comply with CE and FCC Part 15 emissions limits. The device shall be RoHS compliant. The chassis shall be constructed of cold rolled steel and moulded plastic, and mount into a standard 19” 1U EIA rack. The device shall be a Symetrix Jupiter model 4.
