iXO FAQ

iXO FAQ

How do you pronounce iXO?
That's up to you, but here at the factory, we tend to pronounce the letters separately: eye eks oh.
How is the iXO different from other audio manufacturers DSP platforms?
The iXO differentiates itself from the competition in several significant ways. It is based upon our Wheatstone Bridge router cage which is used in mission critical broadcast applications. It utilizes front loading, hot swappable input, output, LIO, and DSP cards which allow for easy system expansion and servicing. Our method of linking multiple cages together allows us to easily create truly large audio system networks; over 3000 inputs and outputs. The signal processing and mixing of the iXO is a semi-fixed architecture which completely eliminates any DSP “gas gauge”. All the processing and mixing is available at all times. Our software interface, iXOverture is extremely intuitive and will enable you to create sophisticated audio systems in a minimal amount of time.
What is “router based mixing and signal processing”?
Being based on the Wheatstone Bridge broadcast router, we can route any input source to any input channel in the system. We can also route any input source, processed input channel, mix output, and processed output to any physical output, system wide.
How does an “input source” differ from an “input channel”?
When any input signal (analog or digital) is connected to an input channel card, that signal becomes an input source and is available to be used on any input channel on any iXO system on the network.
Can any input source be assigned to any input channel?
Yes. You can choose to limit which input sources can be assigned to an input channel by setting the “visibilities” of each input channel.
What is “dual input channel processing” and when would I typically use it?
It is an option where you can have two processing paths (A and B) on each input channel. For example: You can have specific filter and dynamics settings for your speech reinforcement system (A processing), while having different settings for your conference or recording system (B channel). You can choose to assign the A or B process channel to any crosspoint in the iXO matrix.
