Ashly offers user-friendly NE Series DSP for networked audio

Ashly Audio’s new ne4400, ne4800 and ne8800 digital signal processors (DSPs) bring user-friendly setup and control to networked audio systems using Ashly’s PC-hosted Protea NE software. These latest additions to the NE (network-enabled) Series offer a multichannel routing matrix with microphone input, network audio and digital audio hardware options, plus an extensive menu of 32-bit/96kHz SHARC-based DSP that supports hot-plug software control. All three units are now shipping.

The three standard units offer 4 x 4 (4400), 4 x 8 (4800) and 8 x 8 (8800) analog line I/O formats with 24-bit A-to-D and D-to-A converters and a high-performance analog audio path that provides a dynamic range of better than 114dB. Hardware options include four-channel mic/line inputs with software controllable gain and phantom power, plus CobraNet, EtherSound or AES/EBU I/O.

The Ashly NE Series offers a comprehensive DSP library of processing blocks that include an 8 x 8 matrix mixer; a full array of variable Q graphic and parametric equalization; crossover filters with up to 48dB/octave slopes; an advanced automatic feedback suppressor; auto-levelers; compressors; matrix duckers; limiters; and frequency-keyed noise gates. Up to 1365 ms of delay is available on every channel. Ashly’s Protea NE software, running on the PC platform, permits hot-plugging of any function into any channel block while running live audio with no latency or recompiling necessary. Computer or supported third-party device interface is via 10/100 Ethernet and RS-232 protocol. Automatic DHCP network IP configuration ensures quick and easy setup.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
