The XETR AES/EBU boards combine four 2-channel digital inputs and four 2-channel digital outputs on one NEXUS board. Versions with only inputs and outputs are available; versions with XLR or BNC connections offer great structural flexibility.
The XER card is the digital gateway to the NEXUS world by receiving and evaluating AES/EBU data streams. A pragmatic operating concept ensures pleasant handling.
The XER-M module is intended for connecting digital microphones.
For individual requirements the card is offered with a variety of connector types: XLR, BNC, Cinch and optical TOSLINK; versions with RJ 45 and D-Sub connectors allow all signal lines to be routed together via the respective connector in an installation-friendly manner.
With an XAF card it is possible to integrate devices with a Toslink optical port in 8-channel ADAT format into a NEXUS network. The card has an input and an output and processes a total of 16 audio channels.
The XMF MADI card provides a simple, powerful solution for connecting a NEXUS system to MADI equipment anywhere.
With the XTF card, Stage Tec provides an I/O card that supports the TASCAM multi-track format. With eight input and eight output audio channels and an optional sample rate converter, the board supports high-quality signal transfer between the NEXUS network and connected TASCAM devices.
DSPs- & Controllers Component
The XACI board is designed as a universal board for advanced interface solutions, protocol converters, intelligent interfaces and other such tasks.
With an XDSP board it is possible to use the most different signal processing functions directly within the audio matrix. This can be useful in many applications.
The XFAD card allows user-defined crossfading of crosspoints of the audio matrix. This board makes possible in the NEXUS system what would otherwise only be possible in an audio matrix via a mixing console.
The serial interfaces of the XCI card support RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, MIDI and Ethernet. The board can be used universally as a control interface between the NEXUS system and external devices, with a variety of common protocols already available on the board.
The XRI boards for NEXUS base devices offer an abundance of GPIO contacts: The board has 24 inputs each evaluated via optocouplers and 24 relay outputs.
The XTI cards offer serial interfaces in the NEXUS system, whose data is transparently transmitted independently of audio signals. Remote devices can be connected via the network and even between different ports and cards via the matrix.
XCMC cards form the compact DSP core of the AURATUS and ON AIR mixing consoles. They enable the simple, compact design of smaller systems without significant restrictions in functionality.
The XRT board is a super routing matrix for base devices that can switch and distribute signals independently. Six of the twelve SFP ports support high-speed connections, each of which can transmit 2,048 audio channels.
An XCPU card is the core of every base unit. It has an organizational and monitoring function and provides interfaces for user operation. External control systems can also access the system via the XCPU cards.
The XFOC card allows NEXUS base devices to be connected via fiber optic cables. This makes it possible to create complex networks whose topology has virtually no limits.
The XSYNC board makes it possible to synchronize a NEXUS network with external video sources. This ensures that each video frame is always assigned exactly the same number of audio samples.
NEXUS Star Components
With the RIF67 card it is possible to connect up to eight AoIP networks to a NEXUS system. AES67 and Ravenna are supported. The RIF67 cards are available in four versions: with 2, 4, 6 or 8 active ports. A total of 256 audio channels can be output in IP streams. Depending on the expansion level of the board, 8 channels (RIF67-1) down to 2 channels (RIF67-4) can be bundled per stream.
The RMD cards form the scalable DSP of the first generation for Stage Tec's large digital mixing consoles of the AURUS and CRESCENDO families. As development progressed, they were replaced by the RMDQ card generation.
The RCX card is the central unit in the NEXUS Star Router. It manages the device and provides the internal matrix with 4,096 x 4,096 crosspoints. External control systems can be connected to the NEXUS network via various interfaces. The RCX card can be redundantly equipped, which is what the safety concept of the NEXUS system is all about.
The RFOC card is the counterpart to the XFOC network cards in NEXUS base devices. Standard SFP modules allow the very flexible integration of the Star Router into NEXUS networks of any topology. Due to the high switching capacity of the Star Routers, RFOC cards can be used to form a star point in the network, via which many basic devices can be connected to each other centrally.
The RMF MADI card is the consistent scaling of the XMF MADI card for NEXUS base devices. As a router card, it allows up to four MADI universes to be integrated into a NEXUS network. The four ports, both BNC and SFP ports for LC-duplex fiber optics, are connected directly to the matrix of the Star Router and can be routed from there system-wide.
The RSYNC board supports special applications that require a larger number of different sync inputs and/or outputs. Among them is a BNC input for video genlock or blackburst, which supports both bi-level and tri-level sync.
The RMC card is the heart of every AURUS or CRESCENDO mixer. It handles every single operation, manages the mixer projects and controls the entire data exchange between the console interface, the NEXUS network and the DSP cards assigned to the console. Up to two mixing console surfaces can be connected to one RMC card. In addition, there are connections for time code, MIDI and other controls such as RAS.
The RMCQ card is the heart of the new AVATUS IP mixing consoles from Stage Tec. It handles every single operation, manages the mixer projects and controls the entire data exchange between the console interface, the NEXUS network and the DSP cards assigned to the console.
