Third Generation MediaMatrix SCION DSP Launches at InfoComm 2022 Las Vegas
MERIDIAN, MS — MediaMatrix®, a Peavey Commercial Audio® (PCA) brand introduces SCION®, the all-new and powerful Media and Control processor. Shaping the third generation MediaMatrix offering, SCION calls upon 30 years of engineering prowess and market expertise in DSP and networked audio to deliver the most powerful media and control system available today.SCION, a descendant of the legendary MediaMatrix NION® platform, transcends its predecessor leveraging ADi’s cutting-edge SHARC® DSP architecture providing a fully scalable, configurable and flexible media and control processing system. At the heart of the new Peavey MediaMatrix ‘S’ series ecosystem – PCA announces MediaMatrix sNET™ the native AES67 media transport protocol capable of delivering up to 512×512 networked audio channels from a single device. Designed as a ‘Build it Your Way’ system, the SCION frame can be configured from an entry-level device to a fully-featured powerhouse or something in-between with optional hardware modules giving the consultant, integrator, and end-user unrivaled fit for purpose flexibility.Sharing in some strong elements of DNA with NION paves the way for backwards compatibility and convergence, allowing consultants to design system upgrades and fresh projects with the confidence of a simplified and seamless migration path thanks to NWare™ 3.0’s new dual-compiler tool enabling SCION and NION nodes to coexist in the same project. NIO™ Card-based I/O is also compatible with SCION providing welcomed continuity, quality and flexibility.SCION represents the evolution of MediaMatrix and as the meaning of its name suggests a ‘shoot’ that has taken root and continues to grow organically symbolized as a tree with branches and offshoots growing as companion control and I/O products forming to shape a rich ecosystem known as the ‘S’ series.As the world’s first digitally configured and controlled distributed audio system, MediaMatrix has grown from roots of wisdom, through decades of understanding. The launch of SCION signifies innovation in full bloom – a technology and ideal that has been nurtured over time and is ready to flex its branches to accommodate the world’s most demanding commercial audio needs.
