The Octadrive DSP has integral 32-bit audio digital processing and a bi-directional CobraNet® or DANTE™ interface. The unit may thus act as an audio Analogue break-in function/distribution amplifier with the added advantage of highly configurable on-board signal processing, or form part of a CobraNet® or DANTE™ based audio system, with all inputs and outputs being in the digital domain. In this case, the analogue connectivity can be used as an emergency backup signal path, in the event of failure of the digital audio sources The DSP (Digital Signal Processing) allows control of gain, EQ and delay for each input and output. Control of the DSP functions are via AXYS’s WinControl software, which may use either CobraNet® or DANTE™ control data capacity for communications, or a dedicated RS-485 interface.
The Octadrive DSP is available with either CobraNet® or DANTE™ digital audio card fitted.
