Digigram has the PCX1222HR multichannel sound card,
an extension of its HR series of PCX sound cards. Featuring one stereo
input and six stereo outputs in both balanced analog and AES/EBU
formats in a short-length PCI card, the PCX1222HR is targeted at
mission-critical live-assist systems in radio.
The card benefits from all the key features of Digigram’s recently
introduced HR (High Resolution) series of PCX sound cards, which is set
to become the new industry standard: state-of-the-art sound quality
with 24-bit/192 kHz converters, a comprehensive set of drivers
(Digigram np Runtime, WDM DirectSound, Wave, ASIO), hardware sample
rate converters, a 66MHz/64-bit PCI interface, a more powerful on-board
DSP, and greater flexibility for custom developments. The design of the
HR series addresses current and future market needs as expressed by
Digigram’s 100+ OEM development partners.
Philippe Delacroix, Digigram Managing Director, comments: “Since the
launch of the PCX range in 1989, our sound cards have been instrumental
in the digitalization of broadcast audio and have become the de facto
industry standard. The HR Series is a major step forward for the PCX
range and the industry, and will certainly set new benchmarks. We are
confident that our development partners will find creative ways to
enhance their existing applications and to open new markets thanks to
this new generation of products.”
The PCX1222HR follows the launch at NAB 2004 of the PCX882HR and
PCX881HR multichannel sound cards as the first models of the new
series. I/O connections are available on a breakout cable or a rack
mountable external breakout box.
