New DHD Audio DX2 mixer, Cores & Firmware

Posted on: Tuesday 1st of February 2022

Two DHD.Audio DX2 MixersThe new DHD Audio DX2 mixer is a compact four fader audio unit designed for newsroom desks, podcast studios, voiceover suites and editing booths, providing assistive mixing functions akin to other DHD consoles – including motorised faders, automix and auto level gain. It is designed for easy integration with DHD processing cores – of which there are two new models, the XC3 and XD3 – as long as they run its new version 10 firmware.

The two new cores provide full support for intra-site as well as multi-site IP-based device control and audio-over-IP signal distribution and also support automated workflows and product virtualisation. The XC3 IP core is designed for on-air studios, with two dual-core DSP modules in 1U that jointly support up to 48 stereo faders, 72 stereo buses and 16 channels of AES67 IP audio. IPx expansion modules can be added to accommodate 128 channels of AES67/Ravenna IP audio in/out and up to 512 Dante channels. A companion module, the new XC3 Concentrator, allows easy interconnection of multiple IPx modules, control surfaces and I/O modules. The XD3, accommodates larger systems and networked operations such as DHD web apps, allows fully redundant configuration and can accommodate an optional router. Up to 96 stereo faders, 126 stereo buses and 24 Gigabit Ethernet audio ports can be supported.

DHD VERSION 10 FIRMWARE
DHD Firmware version 10 will provide enhanced security and management features, ranging from a powerful new onboarding sequence for initial setup and extending to EBU security measures for media nodes. The new IP cores can now handle Secure Sockets Layer certificates to protect the browser connection in elements such as web apps and API calls. Flexible Service Filters allow users to define which service or API is available on each Ethernet port. Firmware version 10 also enables out-of-band control for DHD AES67 Ravenna audio-over-IP interfaces. Enhanced management capabilities allow users to be added during live operation without configuration changes. An additional feature is automatic dark mode for DHD web apps.
