Modular power

You can equip your 52/XD2 DSP Core with up to four 52-7460 DSP modules to achive maximum processing power.

Each of these DSP modules provide 40-bit floating-point processing for fader channels, channel processing, fixed processing and summing operations. Also additional memory for channel delay and program delay are also added with each DSP module.

Redundancy options

In redundancy mode two identical 52/XD2 Cores work in sync. While the main DSP core controls the broadcast system, the standby DSP core is always ready to take over if necessary.

Beside this DSP and controller redundancy, redundant power supply inputs are built in to provide seamless switching between power sources.

Stay in control

Advanced logic computing for control signals enables you to use the 52/XD2 Core as a real control center for your studio. Transmitting fader starts and red light signals or managing centralised resources like codecs are just a few examples.

Third-party systems, too, can interface with DHD products via Ethernet by using Ember+ or the open DHD External Control Protocol. Or just use GPIOs or a serial connection.
