Peavey MediaMatrix NION nE
Jan. 19, 2011 â€” PeaveyÂ® announces the new MediaMatrixÂ® NIONÂ® nE, a powerful DSP platform designed for cost efficiency in mid-market applications. The NION nE brings the worldâ€™s most efficient high performance audio algorithms, the most powerful configurable DSP core ever built for the commercial, engineered systems marketplace, and the revolutionary MediaMatrix nWareâ„¢ control software to a broader array of designers and contractors.
"The goal for the MediaMatrix NION nE was to bring the power of NION and nWare to every level of the contracting market," said Hartley Peavey, founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics. "The new NION nE provides all of the core capabilities of the NION platform at a new, lower price point, putting the depth and flexibility of MediaMatrix into the hands of any consultant or contractor."
The NION nE will support up to 32 channels of analog audio and up to 64 channels of AES digital audio via four Nioâ„¢ card slots in the NION nE frame. It uses the same Nio cards as a standard NION frame, so users get the same selection and variety of input and output options, including the new Nio-AEC echo cancellation card. The NION nE also accepts CobraNet or Dante digital audio transport network cards, which are optional.
The NION nE is built on the same foundation as the venerable NION n6 and n3. Designers and contractors can expect the same high-quality audio performance and the same complement of DSP power and capability. The idea behind the new NION nE is simple: keep all of the horsepower of the NION engine and fully support the capabilities of nWare, but reduce the cost to make the MediaMatrix processing and distribution system available to the middle market segment.
