TiMax2 Soundhub is a multichannel mix matrix and playback server for numerous applications including theatrical productions, events and AV installations. Some of the facilities featured in this modular system include routing, mixing, equalisation, delay-matrix, multi-track sound effects playback and editing, audio localisation, spatialisation, audio networking and remote control. Connectivity interfaces include Dante-64 and MADI-64. TiMax2 Soundhub is presented in an elegant and robust 2U chassis that accommodates either an analogue or AES Input/Output format, scalable from 16 in, 16 out, 16 tracks up to 64 in, 64 out, 64 tracks. This technology is equally at home in either permanent or portable mode.
TiMax Tracker is a radar showcontrol system using Ultra-Wideband (UWB) radar signals to track performers such as actors and presenters for seamless vocal localisation or other effects automation in 3D space. This advanced technology can also be linked to other media such as lights, video, scenography and animatronics for example.
