Neutrik U.S.A. Adds New Features for XIRIUM PRO Wireless Cable Replacement System

Neutrik USA has released several important new features for its XIRIUM PRO Wireless Cable Replacement System. Expanding upon the full bandwidth, compression-free, low latency, FCC license-free attributes, they have already made XIRIUM PRO a favorite among live sound professionals. The new features add better functionality and security while increasing the system’s versatility.

Foremost among XIRIUM PRO’s new features is the Xirium App Version 3.0. This latest version of the control software offers an Advanced Mode that provides addition
al control and settings options. Also included in the Version 3 software is a new Temperature Monitor that displays the temperature—Low,Good, High—of the base stations utilized in a XIRIUM PRO system. The new Version 3 software also incorporates considerably expanded operation and help documentation—enabling users to get up and running faster.
XIRIUM PRO’s antenna options have also been upgraded. There are now two directional antenna options for use exclusively with XIRIUM PRO receivers. Secondly, the upgraded package also has provisions for a variety of remote mount antenna options.
Central to XIRIUM PRO’s performance attributes is what Neutrik calls DiWA (Digital Wireless Audio). Developed by Neutrik, DiWA technology provides compression-free, FCC license-free, wireless transmission of audio within the 5 GHz band. Among the new Xirium features is an App activated RF attenuator.
The new RF attenuator enables the system receivers to ‘see’ the DiWA signal in high-powered RF environments and, in the process, all but eliminates minimum distance requirements. XIRIUM PRO’s security provisions have also been upgraded. Now, the system provides users the ability to hide/unhide the SSID (Service Set Identifier) of individual base stations. This new capability removes visibility of XIRIUM PRO devices on a Wi-Fi network, eliminating unauthorized access.
“Since its introduction last year, XIRIUM PRO has enabled audio professionals to create compelling wireless setups without the all-too- common long cable runs and the inherent challenges they present.” says Mark Boyadjian, Neutrik USA’s Applications Manager, on the upgrades incorporated into the company’s XIRIUM PRO Cable Replacement System.
“With these new capabilities, XIRIUM PRO gains greater capability, enhanced security, and increased system configuration flexibility. All the system hallmarks are still there, including full range (20 Hz – 20 kHz) compression-free audio, both input and output modules available for analog, AES, and Dante, and the ability to create wireless systems with transmission distances of greater than half a mile (>1 Km line-of- sight). I’m confident XIRIUM PRO’s new capabilities will be well received by industry professionals.”
