Apps-based monitor management and DSP system with zero learning curve.
Symetrix Jupiter packages powerful DSP into a zero learning curve, turn-key audio processing solution drawing its inspiration from the ‘apps’ paradigm of smartphones such as the iPhone. Standing on the shoulders of the world-class SymNet DSP platform, Jupiter upholds Synetrix’ commitment to pristine sound.
Hardware: Choice Made Simple
There are three Jupiter hardware offerings (4-input, 8-input, and 12-input) that differ only in their audio input and output counts. All three use the same software and DSP processes, making your choice of hardware quick and simple.
Software: Easy from the Start
Just like using productivity apps on your smart phone, you use Jupiter apps to do specific audio jobs with a simple download to Jupiter hardware. Tap into one of the multiple personalities of Jupiter – no design time, zero learning curve. Jupiter handles every task, from automixing to loudspeaker management. The ever-growing library of downloadable Jupiter apps future-proofs your hardware investment.
Multiple external control options provide greater end user accessibility. You can use Symetrix RS-485 ARC wall panels for volume control, source and preset selection. Third-party control over IP is quick to implement because Jupiters’ ASCII control protocol is humanly readable with short and simple commands. Logic inputs and outputs integrate with external control hardware like custom indicator panels, life safety systems and remote camera switchers.
Jupiter comes with amazing apps. Apps give Jupiter hardware the ability to take on multiple personalities (only one at a time, thankfully!). Apps are pre-designed, ready to deploy…and they’re free.
Loudspeaker management is the crucial last step in the signal processing chain. A properly tuned system directs the exclusive frequency ranges required by each driver type to the proper drivers, and accounts for driver time alignment, driver/cabinet design anomalies, and room acoustics. Jupiter speaker management apps are built from an extensive pallet of filters, EQ, crossovers, delay, and dynamics modules, pre-configured into common signal chains and ready for deployment in endless venues including houses of worship, night clubs, and theaters.
Special Purpose Signal Processing
Recording studios, broadcast facilities and production environments rely on extreme processing. Jupiter has a surplus of DSP horsepower for demanding processes such as EQ, feedback fighters, FIR filters, multi-dynamics, and crossovers. Problem solving processes include surgical EQ and multi-mode dynamics to tame your most unruly mic or line signals.
Your time is money
Symetrix has made your learning curve zip. For example, with a simple download to hardware Jupiter morphs to become an automixer for houses of worship, courtrooms, and government chambers. Jupiter manages paging and background music distribution for transit centers, shopping malls, commercial buildings, and fitness centers. Jupiter handles sound reinforcement duties for nightclubs, sporting events and theaters and effortlessly functions as a special purpose signal processor for mic or line sources in a broadcast or recording environment
There’s an app for that
Using Jupiter predesigned apps for audio processing is like using productivity apps on a smartphone. With a simple download, tap into one of the multiple personalities of Jupiter – no design time, no learning curve.
Symetrix has organized the Jupiter app library (found in the dowloads section of the website) into four categories:
•Mixing and routing
•Public address and distribution
•Special purpose signal processing
Mixing and Routing
Mixing and Routing are essential functions. From straight mono or stereo mixing for lecture halls and banquet rooms to advanced gating or gain-sharing automixing for courtrooms and town hall meeting rooms, Jupiters’ elegant interface makes complex signal management effortless.
Public Address and Distribution
In bustling transit stations, busy retail outlets and noisy restaurants, paging announcements and distributed background music must be intelligible and always at the right volume. Jupiters’ priority mixer and ambient noise compensation modules ensure the message is always heard.
