MediaMatrix (NSCA booth 1533), a division of Peavey Electronics Corporation, will introduce the new NION (pronounced nee-on), a programmable digital audio processing node designed for professional and commercial audio and communications applications that is coupled with a SHARC Hammerhead DSP engine and extremely efficient audio algorithms.

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; four module bays, which support up to 32 simultaneous analog audio channels; and the integrated CobraNet port, which provides another 64 channels, for a total of 96 simultaneous configurable audio channels.

NION is built on a new embedded Linux architecture designed for stable, efficient and robust performance. A new 512-channel digital audio bus allows for seamless stacking and redundant, self-healing configurations, and NION also offers low-latency audio across all I/O ports. Software support includes new 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, soft buttons and rotary encoder to enable access to common system functions. Additional control interfacing is provided by both RS-232 and RS-485 ports, while a new configurable GPIO system makes interface with hard contacts and logic systems easier.

NION products are currently available in two configurations: The NION n6 provides a total of six Analog Devices SHARC DSPs while the NION n3 provides three.
