Signal Routing and Changeover

The new Falcon processor includes a technologically advanced Audio Changeover/Silence Detector able to switch between any available source: Analog, Digital, IP, AoIP…In case of missing audio from any external sources, the processor can play the playlist stored in the microSD.

 

An embedded Test Signals Generator allows to output an audio signal suitable for testing the equipment or the whole audio system.

I/O Connections

Falcon Audio Processor new series features a complete set of input and outputs connections. Analog and AES/EBU digital audio connections are standard with hardware bypass: Analog Input > Analog Output | Digital1 Input > Digital1 Output | Digital2 Input > Digital2 Output 

 

Three USB ports (one on the front, one on the rear panel and one installed on the internal circuit board), are available.

microSD allows to clone the whole setup from one Falcon to another one.

 

DanteTM connection, available as an option, allows to manage AoIP DanteTM or AE67 signals: 2 Stereo inputs and 2 Stereo outputs.

 

Front Panel

Falcon D7 features a wide Color TFT Technology display (480×128) that shows the input and output processing, including the corrections for each band featured from the compressor, the limiters and the multiband AGC.

Obviously, it also shows the input and output of all signal levels.

Moreover trough the display it’s possible to check the system status: operating parameters, GPI/O port status, etc..

 

A TRS (stereo Jack 6,3 mm) connector allows monitoring both original and processed signal, checking in the faster way the differences between the available presets.

Communications & Alarms

Falcon audio processors can exchange information with other equipment through some communication ports: One LAN/WAN port, two RS-232 serial ports, two USB ports, one GPIO port with optical coupler and relays.

Information will be sent (status, alarms) or received (commands). A panel with 40 LEDs and the LCD display show status information.

Alarm messages can be sent via GPO, SNMP (Trap), and http.

Web Server

Users can manage Falcon equipment via LAN, no need to install any client software. The internal Web Server can be managed with any browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Explorer, Opera…). The GUI on the web page is clear, easy to use and responsive, suitable to be managed from any device: Personal Computers, tablets, smartphones.

SNMP (v 2.0c) programming protocol allows to manage the whole command set. Falcon firmware also implements HTTP, FTP, SNMP, SMTP, UDP, TCP and is PV4 – IPV6 addressing compliant. RDS services need a precise synchronization: the system tries to connect to a primary NTP, backup NTP and to an external GPS receiver (not supplied).

Moreover, connecting an external GPS allows to geo-localize the Falcon. The WEB server supplies a page with a map that shows the appliance position. Standard Ethernet interface can manage up to 4 independent TCP ports, up to 4 separate UDP ports and 1 SNMP port. Obviously, it also shows the input and output of all signal levels

DanteTM AUDIO-OVER-IP CONNECTIVITY

DanteTM option (also supporting AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110-30 transport protocols) provides an Ethernet connection for 2 Stereo Input and 2 Stereo Output, with independent and dedicated Level Control and Sample Rate Conversion.

    Telephone Hybrid and Telco

    The built-in telephone hybrid allows direct connection of a telephone line POTS/PSTN on RJ-11C. The audio is processed via DSP that delivers a state-of-the-art audio processing. It’s also available a Telco N-1 in/out, to connect Oxygen 1000 to an external telephone hybrid. The Telco N-1 is always available on RJ45. TLC commands are available on the same RJ45 with Hook and Ring interface.

    TLC commands for Telco-2-5 are available and configurable on GPIO-DB9 connector with Hook and Ring.


    HDMI output

    The HDMI output allows to connect a HD display monitor to the console, suitable to be used in two flavors:

      • Monitor, that displays the following information:
          • Audio input source levels
          • 4+1 BUS output levels
          • A/B source names assigned of 10 channels
          • Display On-Air sources
          • Microphone On timer (control room & studio)
          • Large Clock
          • Audio output level (Loudspeakers & Headphones)
          • On-Air microphone
          • Telephone active
        • Configure, for configuring all of the device features.
          • HDMI output combined with 4 rotary knobs allow the fast and intuitive programming of all the mixer parameters.
          • The programming GUI has been designed in order to be very easy and intuitive.
          • Selectable home page layouts are available, with many theme icons.

    HDMI output can be personalized with the customer logo. Selectable display layouts are available.

    Bluetooth

    Oxygen 1000 can be equipped with a Bluetooth module. This allows airing the calls made via GSM, Skype, Viber and WhatsApp with a Smartphone, a Tablet or a PC. Oxygen 1000 has two Bluetooth connection modes: bidirectional to support phone calls; monodirectional to put on air high quality stereo audio (A2DP) streamed by Bluetooth sources.

    With Bluetooth calls, PFL enables PRIVATE conversation mode.

    Bluetooth interface is installed at the factory and must be requested at ordering stage.


    Talk Box

    It is a device dedicated to the presenter and guests. Talk Box is very simple to connect to the On Air Console: its take 2 RJ45 cables of the length that is needed to connect it to the mixer. It is possible to connect up to 2 Talk Boxes to the Oxygen 1000. The Talk Box offers a direct connection of the microphone and relative On-Air light, it is also possible to directly connect the studio’s On-Air Light. The Talk Box has a headphone amplifier with two 6.3mm outputs. Through the two large backlit buttons it is possible to activate and deactivate your own microphone (On / Off / Cough) or enable Talk back to the console.


    Dante AoIP Interface

    Oxygen 1000 can be equipped with a Dante (compliant with AES67) interface which provides 8 Stereo Input and 8 Stereo Output on a dedicated Ethernet port, with independent Level Control and Sample Rate Conversion.
    On Oxygen 1000 Dante versions the USB I/O ports are disabled.
    Dante AoIP interface is installed at the factory and must be requested at ordering stage.
