Meridian, MS (October 30, 2008)–Peavey has released version 1.4.2 of its NWare software, as well as memory upgrades and new I/O hardware, for the NION programmable digital audio processing node.
NION NWare version 1.4.2 is fully compatible with the Windows Vista operating system and adds support for network time protocols that allow NION to sync with network time-servers or an internet-based atomic clock.
In addition, NION nX, n6 and n3 nodes now ship with upgrades in flash memory up to two GB to enable additional storage of audio, project files and background music loops, plus enhanced efficiency for messaging, audio playback, recording and multi-tasking within the NION system.
MediaMatrix also is releasing the new NIO 4×4 card, which enables greater flexibility than ever for all NION processing nodes. Featuring a 4-input to 4-output architecture–with mic- and line-level jacks on the inputs and line-level jacks on the outputs–the NIO 4×4 card enables system installers to maximize the NION’s processing power to create streamlined systems based on a single NION node.
NION is built on an embedded Linux operating system architecture. Low-latency audio across all I/O ports, broad scalability and DSP-enhanced versatility make NION ideal for high-performance audio projects where a wide range of audio distribution and processing is required. NWare is a Windows-based interface that works with multiple NION nodes across an Ethernet network, as well as third-party control and SNMP management tools.
