Telos Alliance and Jünger Audio announced a new flagship Jünger audio processor.
“AIXpressor combines a reliable hardware basis for real-time operation with the flexibility of software-defined applications to deliver a whole new concept of audio processing,” the companies said in a press release.
They have been working together since 2019, when U.S.-based Telos entered into an agreement to market, sell and support Jünger Audio-branded products globally. Jünger is based in Germany.
Telos and Jünger highlight the AIXpressor’s processing architecture. “The flexAI system can scale the processing power to an almost unfathomable level by using a new interface format, tieLight, to transport up to 1,024 channels of audio virtually latency-free to an additional processing unit such as the flexAIserver.”
Tools and applications can be created like plug-ins in a traditional DAW. “This concept of software-defined products enables us to create user-specific audio solutions without considering the hardware as a primary factor.”
FlexAI applications can run on the AIXpressor and Jünger Audio’s range of flexAIserver audio processing servers, or on an array of multiple units.
The 1RU box is driven by an x86 CPU-based processor board. The core performs audio processing, encoding and decoding without the need for additional DSP cards or codec boards.
For AoIP conversion the AIXpressor has Livewire+, AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110-30 formats built in, along with support for analog, MADI, AES3 and SDI. Audinate’s Dante AoIP protocol can also be supported.
Other features include a touch-sensitive glass front panel, headphone amplifier for signal monitoring and a USB host connector for backups, configuration or export of system data.
