The audio processing node shall be a 2RU industrial package designed for fixed installation in engineered audio and communications systems. The unit shall include an architecture based on an integrated floating-point Digital Signal Processor (DSP) engine with at least 3 DSP chips. The DSP shall be completely configurable via a Windows-based software utility with additional tools for creating user interface clients and integration with third-party control systems. Customizable I/O control and signal flow design algorithms shall be integrated within the design environment for intuitive system configuration. This software shall include an XML architecture. Support for standard Ethernet management including but not limited to SNMP shall be standard from an integrated rearpanel LAN port. The audio processing node shall include an embedded Linux operating system. The operating system shall reside on non-mechanical IDE storage media. The storage system shall include support for reading/writing data from the operating system and configuration software. Audio file support for .wav audio shall be standard and shall be completely integrated with the unit’s software tools. A non-mechanical storage device of at least 2GB shall be used as the primary storage media and operating system root. The audio processing node shall include a modular I/O card bay system for support of four expansion cards. Each expansion bay shall be capable of supporting not less than 16 inputs and 16 outputs of simultaneous audio. Cards shall be available for microphone and line-level analog audio with options for digital and proprietary audio transports. The audio node shall optionally include a CobraNet or Dante audio transport module with support for at least 64 20-bit digital audio channels. Separate software devices shall be provided for integrating the audio networking module I/O into the configuration file. The audio processing node shall include support for serial data transport via the RS-232 and EIA‑422/485 ports. All data transports including Ethernet shall be available simultaneously and shall include software devices for integration into the configuration file. The audio processing node shall include an integrated GPIO control system with at least 16 configurable low-current low voltage ports and 4 configurable high‑current ports. All GPIO ports shall include software devices for integrating their function into the configuration file. The GPIO connections shall be externally terminated with a DIN-rail breakout assembly (available separately). Status LEDs shall be included on the front panel for monitoring audio faults and power conditions. The audio processing node shall be fan-cooled with a front panel intake and shall operate with a modular universal computer-grade power supply. The audio processing node shall be the MediaMatrix NION nE or approved equal.
