MTSi ION 2.0 Specifications


The ION 2.0 and ION 0.2 interfaces are designed to install in standard electrical installation ‘J-box’ hardware, a perfect solution for Classrooms, Corporate Meeting rooms and Hotel Banquet rooms.

Overview       Specifications

ION 2.0 converts two channels of analog Mic/Line audio input into a CobraNet® audio stream. The XL connectos accept a +4dBu balanced audio signal and has three input sensitivities. The -26 and -56db settings automatically apply phantom power to the microphone. The RCA inputs accept a -8dBu signal and are summed to mono in that input channel.

The interfaces are designed to fit commonly available decorative wall plates and backboxes from Leviton, MK, etc, allowing the installer to meet the Interior Designer or Architects requirements for color and finish. Applications would include Hotels/Hospitality suites, Convention Centers, Corporate Meeting rooms and Classrooms.

The ION 2.0 (below) has 2 analog inputs each with a processing side chain of 2x2 Mixer, AGC, HP, LP High Shelf and Low shelf filters, an 8 bandparametric EQ and a ‘Look Ahead’ Compressor. The 2 analog channels can be transmitted on any of 1-4 outgoing network bundles. Inaddition, the 2 analog channels can be combined with the incoming network channels from other ION2.0’s to make a single 8 channel bundle for those CobraNet® DSP processors that can only accept 8 channel bundles.The ION2.0 and ION0.2 both have 100MIPS of internal DSP processing, DSP schematics as shown below.
