Norcross/Las Vegas (May 17, 2006)–Klotz Digital has introduced its new Xenon stand alone digital radio console for the first time at NAB 2006 in Las Vegas. Xenon has been designed as a perfect mixing solution for small radio stations, small studios, which are part of large radio facilities and for outside broadcasting.
Klotz Digital XenonThe Zenon has a good price-performance ratio for radio broadcasters who expect high performance for their money and would like to convert their studio from analog to digital technology or start up a new station. Relying on a classical design, DJs will find the comfort of an analog console in Xenon while enjoying all advantages of digital broadcasting, as Xenon is providing integrated microphone pre amplifiers, DSP such as EQ and voice processing, signal routing and free configurable GPIs. Training time, even for unskilled staff, is reduced significantly.
Xenon, the all-in-one fully digital broadcast console offers audio inputs and outputs in analog and digital format, routing capabilities and free assignment to faders, DSP functions for audio treatment and processing and a pool of free configurable GPIs for best integration capabilities. Xenon is available as a 6 or 12 fader console. Each 6-fader module is in its own housing enabling the Xenon to be either a compact or split console. Each channel strip is equipped with a professional 104mm fader assignable with any kind of signal through the GUI configurable input router. Large ON/OFF buttons, a CUE button for pre-fade listening, alternate source selection and an individual BUS assignment to the three main busses PGM, REC and UTL completes the fader modules.
The Monitor-DSP-Master Control Module offers 2 console snapshots and free access to 7 DSP presets including EQ and DYN, which are available in any MIC and TEL channel. It comprises a high resolution 40-LED stereo level meter (VU or PPM) as well as full Control Room and Studio monitoring including check of all busses and predefined external monitoring sources. It is also equipped with a reporter input for quick connection of portable or temporary audio devices, and headphone sockets, powering even low impedance headphones.
