Sabine Releases Network Versions of Navigator
Mar 16, 2006 8:00 AM
New network versions of the Navigator system processors from Sabine offer fast and easy sound system control over Ethernet networks. Three new models—the NAV3600-EN, NAV4800-EN, and NAV8800-EN—can be mixed in any way on a Navigator Network.
These new versions share all the features of the standard versions, but they can be controlled from virtually anywhere in the world. Password security prevents unauthorized access, and network information including IP addresses can be saved in dedicated setup files.
Sabine’s new Navigators are complete multi-input/output digital system processors with very flexible control options. Equally at home in integration and touring applications, Navigators function as matrix mixers, loudspeaker processors, and signal routers.
All Navigator versions offer intuitive input/output configurations and fast front-panel control. Navigator Remote software provides access to powerful equalization, crossover, gain management, and delay tools, as well as Sabine’s patented FBX Feedback Exterminator. Multi-room signal routing, intuitive presets, or speaker EQ and alignment—whatever your system needs—the Navigator can provide the precise processing and routing.
There are no DSP meters to monitor when adding DSP functions to the signal path. Users can engage the FBX Feedback Exterminator on all inputs and choose the maximum delay times (450ms) and still have plenty of DSP power for all other signal processing.
Superior audio quality is achieved in the hardware and the firmware of the Navigators. The 24-bit digital converters and the 32-bit (40-bit extended) floating-point processors eliminate the noise and distortion of conventional 24-bit fixed-point devices. The FBX Feedback Exterminators combine precise filtering with the sophisticated gain management of Sabine’s Q-Series products.
