Both DX2 modules are equipped with a user-configurable 7.8 inch multi-touch screen for viewing fader and central control parameters. Optional Assist App 52-8512 can be used to control the mixer via a 1:1 copy directly from any browser. The DX2 can be connected to all DHD XC3 and XD3 cores. It integrates easily with Series 52 I/O modules such as the Dante or AES67 AoIP interfaces, 3G/HD SDI embedder/de-embedder, MADI or DHD APC audio.
Also making their IBC debut will be the latest additions to DHD’s range of audio production processing cores. These integrate elements such as control surfaces, routing and external-device interfacing into a stand-alone or distributed system. The new XC3 and XD3 provide full support for intra-site as well as multi-site IP-based device control and audio-over-IP signal distribution. Automated workflows and product virtualisation are fully supported.
The DHD XC3 IP core is designed for use in on-air studios. It comprises two dual-core DSP modules which combine into a compact 1U. These jointly support up to 48 stereo faders, 72 stereo busses and 16 channels of AES67 IP audio. IPx expansion modules can be added to accommodate 128 channels of AES67/Ravenna IP audio in/out and up to 512 Dante channels. A companion module, the XC3 Concentrator, allows easy interconnection of multiple DHD IPx modules, control surfaces and I/O modules.
The XD3 is a high-performance IP core for use with large mixing and routing systems. It includes support for demanding networked operations such as DHD web apps. The XD3 IP core allows fully redundant configuration and can accommodate an optional router. Up to 96 stereo faders, 126 stereo busses and 24 Gigabit Ethernet audio ports are supported by the XD3 router and IP core combination.
DHD’s latest-generation Version 10 firmware gets its first IBC showing. This offers new capabilities including enhanced security, unified user management based on web apps, expanded fader and bus handling, and refinements to the DHD Toolbox configuration software. Security and management feature additions range from a powerful new onboarding sequence for initial setup plus EBU security measures for media nodes.
