RTS will be launching the
Cronus 32-port digital matrix intercom
at this year’s NAB, Booth #C-9106.
RTS Cronus is a 32-port digital matrix intercom in 2RU. Based upon an advanced DSP architecture, Cronus has the ability to link up to a maximum of four units to form a single 128 port matrix system. Through the use of standard video coaxial cable, the individual Cronus units can be located hundreds of meters apart, and still appear as a single matrix. When connected as a single matrix, the individual Cronus control remains autonomous and independent at each matrix for the highest reliability.
RTS Cronus "Seamless Sizing" allows 2, 3, or 4 matrices to be combined by the simple addition of coaxial cable. Seamless sizing means that upon interconnection, each matrix and all panels learn about the new configuration without operator intervention or reprogramming. The USB ports for programming are available on both front and rear panels. The front panel display and shaft encoders permit extensive control without the need for a PC.
Cronus is FULLY compatible with all existing RTS matrix products. Also, Cronus has the ability to connect, via an interface card, to existing ADAM matrices. This allows Cronus to be a “satellite” matrix to any existing ADAM intercom system from a 128 port single frame system to a frame of over 800 ports - a single, large matrix - no trunking, no blocking.
