Dynacord has introduced the MXE5 matrix mix engine – the first member of new performance audio matrix series.

Following the launch of the IPX and TGX amplifiers and SoniCue sound system software, the MXE matrix mix engine series is being introduced with the MXE5, offering a 24x24 crosspoint audio matrix for both routing and mixing, 12 analogue mic/line inputs, eight line outputs and 24 Dante audio channels. The MXE5 can be used as a communications hub for all IP-based peripherals, and provides comprehensive supervision of all system-wide commands.

Dynacord MXE5 matrix mix engineThe MXE5 is designed for consultants, production companies, specifiers and system integrators for high-quality BGM and live performance applications, including stadia and sports facilities; congress, conference and performing arts centres; contemporary churches; and large educational facilities. Production companies can also use the MXE5 in live-sound environments in a system drive rack.

The MXE5 benefits from advanced DSP, a sampling rate of 96kHz and claims the industry’s lowest audio latency at <0.22ms, extremely low distortion (<0.002dB THD) and a signal-to-noise ratio of >118dB.

The MXE5 offers a variety of functions beyond being a crosspoint matrix; it also works as both a system manager and an OCA controller with complete monitoring and supervision abilities. In addition, it also serves as an FIR-Drive speaker controller. Third-party integration is enabled via plug-ins to upgrade existing systems for enhanced performance, starting with a plug-in for Q-Sys. The MXE5 also incorporates the entire network infrastructure, with Dante audio transport, AES70-compliant control and no requirement for retrofitted external cards.

Onboard are 24 channels of input and output processing features, such as zone mixing, dynamic EQ, delay, compression, limiting, ducking and de-essing. Future additions will include free DSP configuration, auto mixing, a task engine, Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC), Automatic Gain Control (AGC) and Ambient Noise Control (ANC).

Mission-critical reliability and failure-safe operation are at the core of the MXE5’s design, with primary and secondary Omneo ports allowing full flexibility and integration into various network designs, such as transparent, RSTP or glitch-free. The eight GPIO control ports comprise a built-in multicast filter that makes the MXE5 ideal for control over Wi-Fi networks.

The MXE5 integrates completely with Dynacord’s SoniCue sound system software, one of the most powerful software interfaces in the industry, offering comprehensive control and easy, intuitive operation. Thanks to SoniCue, the MXE5 can be assigned with personalisation features, rights management and GPIO configuration.

The optional TPC-1 touchpanel controller has a low-profile form factor and features a 5.7-inch HD display. With the universal mounting socket (EU, UK, US) and Power over Ethernet (PoE), it can be easily mounted and installed. The TPC-1 is controlled and freely configurable via SoniCue.

The MXE5 will be available in Q2 2020.
