Norcross, GA (August 10, 2006)–Klotz Digital has announced the upgrade of its flagship product line, Vadis, by unveiling Vadis 212, the new compact audio router and DSP engine. The Vadis 212 is the direct successor of the Vadis 210 and handles up to 256×256 I/O channels.
Vadis 212 offers improved aesthetics, an enhanced front panel display and the integration of a fanless PSU, allowing the frame size to be reduced to three rack units without loss of performance. The Vadis 212 still provides all features of the product line with its flexible architecture for getting any signal anywhere, reducing wiring cost by using fiber cabling, as well as a combination of modular design and freely assignable slots enabling the system to grow with the user’s needs.
The fanless PSU is now installed at the front of the Vadis 212 frame offering easy accessibility and totally silent operation, allowing the user to install the engine directly in studios or other noise-sensitive areas. A redundant PSU is optionally available. All essential components, such as redundant PSUs and all audio or data interface cards can be replaced during operation according to Klotz Digital’s hot swap technology.
The Vadis 212 consists of a 19-inch fanless main frame with 10 freely assignable slots for proven interface plug-in cards covering the most established analog and digital audio formats. Decentralized signal processing, routing and fiber optic audio networking, offering shared access to inputs and outputs, as well as DSP functions are only some of the features provided by the Vadis 212.
The router comes along with easy-to-use control software, including a clearly structured GUI, for configuration and control. To extend the operation and enable control from different locations, RCPs (Router Control Panel) can be attached. The system status is monitored regularly and the last system status is stored automatically on a non-volatile memory to make it easily available after power off.
