The SOUND4 IMPACT PCIe card...
100% autonomous in terms of resources, the card only requires power from the PC.
4 inputs: AES from 32 to 192kHz, analog, IP (Livewire or SOUND4 IP CONNECT) and PCI (audio driver).
Mixing of inputs and automatic safety function.
5 simultaneous and independent outputs: TX1, TX2, AES, Analog IP (Livewire or SOUND4 IP CONNECT) and PCI (audio driver)
Routing of signals for outputs.
Relay switch for automatic by-pass.
Digital AES/EBU synchronisation input.
DSP computing power: 4 Giga Flops (Sharc 40 bits with floating point).
GUI and driver compatible 32 & 64 bits(Windows 7, Windows 8 & 8.1, Windows 10, 2008 R2, 2012) and Linux (Debian).
Multicard driver (the quantity of PCIe slots will be the only limit to the number of cards admissible in the same PC).
Start-up time of the SOUND4 IMPACT card: 2 seconds max to be On Air!
Ready for the future: 100% upgradeable and fast. While updating the card, the sound is interrupted for only two seconds.
