New at Winter NAMM 2009: Electro-Voice NetMax N8000-1500

n8000_front.jpgThe N8000-1500 represents the ultimate in state-of-the-art pro audio signal processing. Based on the technology inside the Electro-Voice NetMax N8000, this technology has proven itself time and again in the most demanding installations and live performances. Ranging from the World Cup to LIVE8, from the Houston Rodeo to Kenny Chesney’s ground-breaking tours, NetMax has established itself as a roadworthy tool that can take even the most sophisticated PA systems to the next level.

Now, NetMax itself advances to the next level with the N8000-1500. At the heart of the N8000-1500 is the new DSP-2 engine. Composed of three dual-core processors, the DSP-2 expands the total processing power of the N8000-1500 to 1500 MIPS. But it doesn’t stop there. The unique modular nature of NetMax means that each input or output card added to a chassis provides an additional DSP engine and another 100 MIPS of processing power. This means that a fully loaded chassis provides 1900 MIPS of processing — almost double the power of the original N8000. Combined with the optional CobraNet interface, NetMax’s unique monitoring and supervision options, FIR-Drive, and the multitude of control options provided by IRIS-Net, the N8000-1500 represents the most powerful pro audio processor on the market!

Superior Audio Performance
The highest level of audio applications demand the highest audio performance, and NetMax delivers. High quality audio converters deliver a stunning dynamic range of 114 dB from analog input to analog output, including all signal processing. The pristine signal path ensures that audio remains pure and uncolored for the most accurate signal processing and reproduction. However, NetMax addresses other considerations for live audio applications, such as latency. The N8000-1500’s auto-compiling DSP engine provides a fixed latency of 2.19 ms from analog input to analog outputs – far less than many competitive products.

FIR-Drive
IRIS-Net™ control and supervision software has always provided new and unique solutions for the pro sound market, providing tools, customization, and control that no other systems can touch. EV’s latest innovation is FIR-Drive technology for the line array control platform within IRIS-Net. The FIR-Drive Line Array Controller provides a comprehensive system drive preconfigured with all the tools needed for the most demanding applications, including individual processing elements for main, array, and zone EQ, multiple subwoofer configurations, flexible auxiliary processing, and full routing options. Best of all, the control interface is laid out in a single high density interface, allowing easy control of all array parameters from a single page. The N8000-1500 has the FIR processing power required to handle today’s sophisticated, highly detailed line array systems, providing the ultimate in performance, sound quality, and pattern control.

Full System Monitoring and Supervision
Arguably, the most important aspect of live sound is ensuring that the PA is healthy and performing properly. IRIS-Net and NetMax provide a unique set of tools for monitoring and supervising all aspects of a system, including temperature, network status, fault conditions, and even cable integrity. When used with Tour Grade series amplifiers equipped with RCM-26 cards, an operator is able to monitor the health of the system down to a transducer level, using tools such as the One Button System check to show the status of all amplifiers, cables, and drivers in a matter of minutes, not hours. NetMax provides the supervision and control to ensure that the PA system is always operating at its best.
