IIR and FIR

The Intelli-series provides all the system management tools necessary for comprehensive system alignment and EQ, through to the provision of IIR and custom FIR based crossovers.

Auto IP

The Intelli-series is designed to interface easily into any existing (or bespoke) Ethernet network via internal 3-way Ethernet switches. Both automatic IP (DHCP) and static IP confi guration is provided as standard, enabling plug & play connectivity.

Synchronisation

Four sync options are available: Dante, AES A/B, AES C/D and internal. The Intelli-X3 series manages synchronisation by providing a three-tiered redundancy approach, ensuring that if any sync source is lost, the Intelli-X3 will automatically revert to another ensuring no loss in audio.

AES

Intelli-X3 I/O can be selected (in pairs) to be either analogue, AES/EBU or Dante audio network, enabling a mix of audio formats to be used simultaneousl

192 kHz

The new Intelli-series features a no-compromise design resulting in unmatched audio performance. The internal processing is selectable from 44.1 kHz to 192 kHz, providing full compatibility with both standard and high-end sample rate formats.

Dante

Intelli-X3 648 comes with a Fully redundant Dante Module. Enabling the device to be placed in any Dante audio over Ip network.

Dante audio over IP with full network redundancy

Intelli-X3 support full redundant Dante audio over IP, an uncompressed, multi-channel digital media networking technology, with near-zero latency and synchronization. Dante is the preferred audio networking solution that has been adopted by more pro-audio AV manufacturers than any other networking technology. Interoperability is not a dream of the future, but a reality today.

Signal routing and system configuration with Dante is fast, simple, and incredibly flexible. Dante Controller is a powerful software application that manages devices on the network. Setting up a Dante network is typically just a matter of plugging devices into an Ethernet switch and connecting a computer to the network. All Dante devices are automatically discovered and displayed in Dante Controller, so you can be up and running in seconds.
