EXP7x Device

The EXP7x is an 8-channel AEC DSP Expansion Unit for the HAL1x expansion bus. The device consists of eight, full-featured AEC blocks that include level control, Ambient Noise Reduction (ANR), AGC and 5-Band Parametric EQ. Each connected EXP7x device provides eight full-featured, high-performance AEC blocks. Blocks appear in the DSP TAB under the Conferencing heading. The eight AEC blocks are fully drag-and-drop and may be freely used in a configuration as required.

An AEC block and its child blocks appear as follows in the Halogen processing map:

The EXP7x is powered via a universal AC Mains switching power supply. It is packaged in a 1U chassis approximately eight inches deep. As with all the HAL1x Expansion Units, the EXP7x connects to a HAL1x via a shielded CAT 5e cable with a maximum length of 100 meters (300 feet).
