System management processor

Intell-X²

A proven solution for system management and speaker processing

Intelli-X² is a multi-purpose system management processor with a powerful array of DSP features. The Intelli-X² has proven its reliability and versatility on countless tours and in many high-profile venues worldwide. Featuring internal processing up to 192 kHz, high-end studio-grade analogue circuit designs and mastering-grade compressors, the Intelli-Series sets the benchmark in system management and speaker processing design.

Applications

The Intelli-Series is designed for roles including signal routing and distribution, room equalisation, speaker and driver time alignment and crossover implementation. In addition to serving at FoH and Monitors on tours and festivals and in fixed installations, Intelli-X² is also eminently suitable as a room equaliser, active crossover and /or audio DA in a studio or cinema.

Key features

IR AND FIR

The Intelli-series is packed with all the system management tools necessary for comprehensive system alignment and EQ, through to the provision of IIR and custom FIR based crossovers.

AUTO IP

Intelli-X² is designed to interface easily into any Ethernet network via internal 3-way Ethernet switches. Both automatic IP (DHCP) and static IP configuration is provided as standard for plug ‘n play connectivity.

SYNCHRONISATION

Four sync options are available: Wordclock, AES A/B, AES C/D and internal. Intelli-X² manages synchronisation through a three-tiered redundancy approach, ensuring that if any sync source is lost, the unit will automatically revert to another (as defined by the user) ensuring no loss in audio.

AES

Intelli-X² I/O is selectable in pairs as analogue, AES/EBU or Dante audio network, allowing a mix of audio formats to be accommodated simultaneously.

192 KHZ

Featuring internal processing selectable from 44.1kHz to 192 kHz, Intelli-X² provides full compatibility with both standard and high-end sample rate formats. Switchable convertors are provided on the inputs, making it easy to work with equipment operating at different sample rates.

TWO WAYS TO CONTROL

Intelli-X² can be configured and adjusted on the fly via its front panel controls and LCD screen, with straightforward, icon-driven menus helping you to get straight to the parameter you need. Alternatively, APEX’s acclaimed Intelli-Ware software provides fast, intuitive control from your PC.

Intelli-Ware

Intelli-Ware provides fast, intuitive control for Intelli-Series hardware from touch, tablet and tethered PCs. The interface uses simplified menus and icons for rapid access to all parameters. Intelli-Ware also offers comprehensive system-wide ganging, copy/paste and data management facilities, allowing complex configurations to be configured, presented and stored efficiently and intuitively. The software is accessible from multiple devices simultaneously – a feature welcomed by engineers needing to optimise audio from various locations throughout a venue or festival site.
