High-End Dante™ Format Converter

NIO xcel meets all requirements. High-quality converters, digital splits, an integrated DSP mixer, EQ's and delay on all inputs and outputs, compact design, redundant power supply, various I/O options, remote controllable via any web browser. NIO xcel leaves nothing to be desired for the demanding user: a format converter that flexibly and conveniently meets every requirement, whether for live productions, in recording applications or stand-alone operation. All units are available in a rugged 9 1/2" form factor for mobile use or as 19" or double 19" units for rack mounting.

CONFIGURATION VIA WEB SERVICE

The SALZBRENNER NIO xcel series units are equipped with a web interface for easy and intuitive configuration on any device, whether mobile or desktop. All units in the network can be individually addressed and set up conveniently, from name assignments to configuration of application-specific functions and operation of the internal mixer. Individual unit configurations can also be saved, imported and exported, significantly reducing set-up time for larger installations.

Integration with POLARIS evolution

NIO xcel is fully integrated into the proprietary evolution control platform and can therefore also be operated and controlled by the POLARIS evolution mixing console system. NIO xcel is the ultimate I/O unit for Dante-based POLARIS evolution systems.

SIMPLE NETWORKING

Dante™ Network and power supply redundancy is a given, as is perfect synchronisation, even across multiple switches

EXCELLENT QUALITY & SAFETY

Made in Germany for the most demanding audio

RELIABLE

Highest reliability through redundancy

Built-in 16x16 Mixer

Integrated, freely configurable 16x16 mixer
