At NAB, Telex/RTS introduced the RTS Cronus Digital Matrix Intercom, a 32-port system occupying two rack units. Cronus is based upon an advanced DSP architecture and its standard configuration offers the ability to link up to four units into a single 128-port matrix, over distances of hundreds of meters.
The RTS Cronus Digital Matrix Intercom includes a proprietary active feedback elimination circuit to allow high-volume operation in confined spaces without feedback.
The Cronus features LAN and USB connectivity for programming, the USB ports being available on both front and rear panels, and front-panel shaft encoders and displays permit extensive control without the need for a PC in many applications.
Cronus is compatible with all existing RTS matrix products, including all keypanels, telephone interfaces, level panels, Telex Intelligent Trunking, GPI and system adapters for ADAM, ADAM-CS and Zeus.
Cronus also has the ability to link, via an interface card, to existing ADAM matrices, allowing Cronus to function as a “satellite” matrix to any existing ADAM from a 128-port single frame to a frame of more than 800 ports. This combined system appears as a single large matrix, without the need for trunking. Cronus will be available initially with high-quality analog inputs and outputs. Other interfaces including AES digital audio, VOIP and digital via coax will follow later this year.
Cronus features advanced DSP processing with frequency shaping and vox, and also includes a proprietary active feedback elimination circuit to allow high-volume operation in confined spaces without worrisome feedback problems.
