MediaMatrix hosted its inaugural NION Technology & Applications seminar on April 18-22, 2005, to a group of commercial audio and communications system designers. NION is the next-generation MediaMatrix digital processing technology and the successor to the original MediaMatrix.
"We are establishing a foundation for what we see as a pivotal technology, just as we did with the first Fundamentals of MediaMatrix seminar in 1994," says Will Roland, operations manager at MediaMatrix. "Since this is a completely new technology, its evolution will continually enhance the seminar curriculum just as the original MediaMatrix did. We will continue to support this groundbreaking technology through intensive educational seminars."
The NION Technology & Applications seminar, held at Peavey International Headquarters, introduced NION technology through a balanced mix of lectures, presentations and hands-on exercises that provided an in-depth look at the products, technology and applications in which these systems can be used.
"Because NION creates system possibilities well beyond traditional or alternative solutions," Roland adds, "there is an inherent challenge to ensure that system designers are able to get a solid base of fundamentals under their belt. Many of today's designers are not fully aware that this product can, in a very fundamental way, change the entire design process. We fully expect the NION Technology & Applications seminar to grow significantly as we continue to develop the NION product line."
NION couples an advanced DSP engine with efficient audio algorithms to redefine the possibilities in audio and communications installations. NION features MediaMatrix’s Scalable I/O Architecture, a modular I/O scheme that supports a variety of plug-in cards for maximum versatility, plus multiple module bays that support up to 64 simultaneous audio channels each; an integrated CobraNet port that provides another 64 channels; and a 512-channel digital audio bus for seamless stacking and redundant, self-healing configurations.
