(Press Release | Posted 2008-06-13)
MediaMatrix by Peavey has
released version 1.4.2 of its NWare™ software, as well as memory upgrades and new I/O hardware,
for the NION® programmable digital audio processing node.
NION NWare version 1.4.2 is fully compatible with the Windows® Vista® operating system and
adds support for network time protocols that allow NION to sync with network time servers or an
Internet-based atomic clock. In addition, NION nX, n6 and n3 nodes now ship with upgrades in
flash memory up to 2 GB to enable additional storage of audio, project files and background music
loops, plus enhanced efficiency for messaging, audio playback, recording and multi-tasking within
the NION system.
MediaMatrix has also released the new NIO 4x4 card, which enables greater flexibility than ever for
all NION processing nodes. Featuring a four-input to four-output architecture—with mic- and linelevel
jacks on the inputs and line-level jacks on the outputs—the NIO 4x4 card enables system
installers to maximize the NION’s robust processing power to create streamlined systems based on
a single NION node.
NION is built on an embedded Linux operating system architecture designed for stable, efficient
and robust performance. Low-latency audio across all I/O ports, broad scalability and DSPenhanced
versatility make NION ideal for high-performance audio projects where a wide range of
audio distribution and processing is required. NWare is a Windows-based interface that works with
multiple NION nodes across an Ethernet network, as well as third-party control and SNMP
