Falcon XT is the top class digital audio processor that also features Stereo Generator and RDS Encoder.
It is the full optional and most prestigious equipment designed for those broadcasters that really want to get the best with no compromise.
Falcon XT assures the top quality performance and exclusive audio.
It features powerful DPSs, 5-band architecture, the dual band AGCs, 3-band equalizer, stereo enhancer, speech detector and 4 limiters.
The comprehensive and accurate control of each audio parameter allows to shape perfectly the audio to broadcast unique and exceptional branded sound.
The LAN port and the built-in Web Server allows to take the control of the processor and tune the audio from anywhere.
The built-in digital Stereo Generator assures an extremely precise MPX Signal.
The RDS Encoder (optional) is compliant to UECP SPB490, provides 2 DataSet with a wide range of static services, including Radio Text.
Falcon XT features a full connectivity with analogue and digital I/O (over XLR connectors) and 2 independent MPX outputs, USB, GPI and serial ports.
The hardware bypass circuit is always included to guarantee the presence of audio and continuity of audio programs.
Falcon XT provides the broadcaster even more demanding, extremely sophisticated audio features and high-level standard: 5-band control compression, dual-band power AGC, three-band EQ and Brightness control.
The Stereo Enhancer parameterized command provide to the radio station sound, the spacing effect and large stereo horizon openings.
The control of the phases of mono audio signals, makes the voice sound more natural, the Expander control allows to minimize the background or unwanted noise, while the Overdrive and the SuperBass dealing to make the sound more important on low and very low frequencies, creating an impressive effect of loudness.
In addition, the SuperBass Harmonizer controls the distortion of the bass sound/low frequency, compared to their clipping, creating a sound impact unmistakable, increasing the energy transmitted by the low frequency and making listening much more pleasant than other audio processors.
The two distinct Final Limiter drives, one broadband and one dedicated only to low frequencies, maximize the presence of the sound, always maintaining a pleasant audio listening.
Falcon XT makes the sound of any single broadcaster unique without creating an artificial sound.
The soundprint of each broadcaster can be created from one of ten preset audio files already on Falcon XT, from rock to classical, country, talk show, or preset audio while preserving the original sound, enhance the character and the unique details.
It is possible to recall a preset using ASCII protocol serial / ethernet port or via GPIn logic state.
The internal RDS encoder available as an option, provides two DataSet, each with a wide range of services including static programmable PS 60 messages, 16 RadioText messages, Alternative Frequency (AF) to receive the best frequency as a function of ‘coverage area’, the Traffic Program (TP) / Traffic Announcement (TA) to listen to traffic information and functions such as EON, M/S, DI, CT, PI, PTY, PIN.
The switching between the DataSet can occur by serial commands, GPIO or TCP/IP from a radio automation system.
The RDS encoder complies with UECP SPB490.
The connectivity of Falcon XT is complete and manifold.
The rear panel contains XLR connectors for connection of the inputs and outputs in analog and digital AES/EBU.
As regards the part MPX are available two outputs individually buffered and independent for the signal MPX+RDS, plus two additional inputs AUX (SCA) with different functionality.
An AUX input (SCA) expressly intended use of external RDS encoder, while a second input is able to switch the audio from another processor MPX to create a subnet managed by the automation system.
All outputs are equipped with hardware bypass in case of fault of the apparatus.
For remote connections are available an Ethernet TCP/IP port, a RS232 serial port, a USB port and a connection port GPIO with optocouplers and open collector representing the operating states and alarms.
Falcon XT can be controlled remotely via Windows-based client software or through a common http pages thanks to the web server. Universal power supply 90-264Vac 47-63Hz to operate in any region of the world Falcon XT occupies 1 19″ rack unit.
