AxelTech Falcon X6/X7 - All-in-one 5 Bands Audio Processor with MPX Generator

The Falcon X Series

Different users have different needs. This is the reason why AxelTech feature a whole processors family with various models suitable for specific workflows. FALCON X7 is the full option version while FALCON X6 is the same model but without the controls on the front panel, suitable to be remotely installed anytime we need to manage remotely the appliance via WEB interface.

Features


The new FALCON audio processors integrate, as usual for AxelTech, many accessory features mandatory in the radio workflow - such as the RDS coding and Stereo Generation - but also looking at the innovative technologies - such as DAB and audio over IP.FALCON series equipment ensures top quality performances and exclusive audio. It features powerful DPSs, 5-bands architecture, dual bands AGCs, 3-bands equalizer, stereo enhancer, speech detector and 5 limiters. The comprehensive and accurate control of each audio parameter allows to shape perfectly the audio to broadcast unique and exceptional branded sound.

Advanced features

PROCESSING DELAY

A configurable delay (from 0 to 10”) can be applied to the FM process in order to synch with those distribution channels having a significant latency like the DAB. 

DUAL PROCESSING

15 KHz processing allows to use it as FM Audio Processor.20 KHz processing for digital broadcasting, allows to use it as DAB Audio Processor, HD Radio Audio Processor, Sirius XM Audio Processor, Web Radio Audio Processor. 

LOUDNESS PROCESSING

EBU R 128 and ITU-R BS.1770-4 Loudness Recommendations available for digital and analog radio processing chains compliant with every country loudness rules. 

MPX LOUDNESS PROCESSING

ITU BS.412 MPX Power Loudness Recommendations available for MPX processing chains compliant with every country loudness rules. 

DANTE AUDIO-OVER-IP CONNECTIVITY (Optional)

DanteTM option (compliant with AES67) provides an Ethernet connection for 1 Stereo Input and 1 Stereo Output, with independent and dedicated Level Control and Sample Rate Conversion. MPX over AES 192 (AES3)This is the standard for exchange the digital MPX+RDS signals between professional audio devices.192 kHz standard is supported by several transmitter manufacturers.

RDS/RBDS ENCODER

The RDS encoder is compliant with the major international standards:UECP EBU SPB490 v7.05 and Cenelec in Europe and NRSC in the United States.The new "dynamic" features allow to manage many kinds of services:PS, RT, RT+, PTY, PTYN. Connecting the Falcon with the radio automation software it can manage many additional information such as song title, song artist, on-air program, speaker's name, etc. The native interface with RSS feed format allows receiving directly news feeds and it is RDS 2.0 ready. 

ADVANCED CHANGEOVER

The Advanced Audio Changeover/Silence Detector is able to switch between any available input source:Analog, Digital, MPX, FM, IP, DanteTM, Internal Audio Player. 

REAL TIME AUDIO MONITOR

Processing delay is quite non audible and depends on the processing complexity.
