Ashly 24 24M Digital Matrix Processor
Ashly-24-24M
The Protea 24.24M Matrix Processor uses modular expansion cards to provide up to twenty-four channels of audio matrixing and processing. The base unit offers a four-input/four-output configuration. Each input and output expansion card has an individual DSP processor allowing you to expand the base unitís total inputs or outputs four channels at a time. These cards are easily installed in the field without the need to reprogram the device. Matrixing allows you to route any input to any output and control individual levels once they have been assigned. Fixed path architecture and extensive processing power per channel will reduce the amount of time it takes to set up your system.

All programming is accomplished using Ashlyís Protea System Software on a PC platform. No front panel controls and multi-level software security assures you a tamperproof audio system. Whether you are designing or installing a system for corporate boardrooms, restaurants, courtrooms, houses of worship, left/center/right theatres, auditoriums or conference centers, the Protea 24.24M will more than satisfy your requirements for any zoned system requiring input/output matrixing with signal processing. The 24.24M Matrix Processor's firmware is supported by flash making the device capable of field upgrades using Ashly Audioís Protea System Software. Reprogramming is simple and takes only minutes.

Input channel processing blocks include Mic Preamp with Phantom Power, Gain, Delay, fifteen EQ Filters, Gate, Autoleveler and Ducker. Inputs may be configured as either mic or line level.

Output channel processing blocks consist of a Cross Point Mixer, HPF/LPF, Delay, fifteen EQ Filters, Gain and Limiter. The cross point mixer in the output section allows you to route any input to any output at any level and mute any input at any output without affecting the true input configuration. The HPF/LPF block offers Bessel, Butterworth and Linkwitz-Riley filters with 12, 18, 24 and 48dB/ octave slopes.

You may use the WR-1, WR-2, WR-3 and WR-4 to control levels and presets from a remote location. These accessories mount in a standard wall box.

Euroblock connectors for audio, preset recall, dc remote level control and data in/out connections are on the rear panel. Standard 9-pin RS-232 data connectors are located on the front and rear panel to allow all functions to be controlled either by a PC or a dedicated control system.

Thirty-five presets are available to set and store your own system requirements. When using Protea System Software, full system setup and control is quick and easy with the capability of storing multiple system configurations as backups or for future reference.

Protea System II 24.24M The base unit digital matrix processor shall consist of four inputs and four outputs with a dedicated DSP processor and A/D, D/A circuitry. All programming shall be accomplished using Protea System Software to be supplied with each device and a PC using a WindowsTM 95, 98, 2000/ XP, ME or NT platform. The installer shall have the ability expand the processorís input or output configuration by installing input or output module cards for a total of twenty-four audio channels with fifteen specific configurations. Each input or output card shall have its own DSP processor for all digital signal processing blocks and shall have their own A/D or D/A circuitry. The installer shall be allowed to expand the base unitís total inputs or outputs four channels at a time. The input and output cards shall be field installable without the need to replace or reprogram the deviceís firmware and shall automatically recognize the base unitís new configuration and display the new configuration upon power up. The 24.24M Matrix Processorís firmware shall be supported by flash making the device capable of field upgrades using Ashly Audioís Protea System Software. Each input channel shall include fixed architecture processing blocks of Mic Preamp with +48V Phantom Power, Gain, Delay, fifteen EQ Filters, Gate, Autoleveler and Ducker. Inputs shall have the option to be configured to accommodate either mic or line levels. Each output channel processing block shall include fixed architecture processing blocks of a Cross Point Mixer, HPF/LPF, Delay, fifteen EQ Filters, Gain and Limiter. The cross point mixer in the output section shall allow for routing any input to any output at any level and mute any input at any output without affecting the true input configuration. Each input and output shall have individual mute capability.
