Meet HAL, an expert in room combining, paging and distributed audio systems. This groundbreaking architecture is dimensions beyond any other solution. HAL easily guides even novice users through what used to be complex tasks in just minutes. No intricate matrix mixing or presets are required for room combining and paging. No virtual wiring required to distribute pages and background music to multiple zones.
Seamlessly interface HAL to your application with a broad variety of peripheral devices including smart Digital Remotes, Remote Audio Devices (RADs), portable and in-rack automixers, audio I/O and control logic expansion devices, ambient sensing mics, small remote amplifiers, and an advanced Paging Station.
In addition, the HAL Multiprocessor and Halogen software check the status, location, CAT 5 wiring integrity, and that audio is flowing in all peripheral devices, so you know your system is properly connected and ready to go.
HAL is more than just another DSP drag-and-drop system. It has revolutionized system design and installation.
NEWS! Halogen version 3.0 software supporting the HAL1x hardware will ship in April 2013. The new HAL1x Expansion Bus supports 32 daisy-chained Expanders in any combination. The RAD27 USB Audio Sound Card will be released at the same time.
Three HAL Multiprocessors provide various audio I/O and control options for both large and small installations.
|HAL1 supports 16 in x 16 out audio, which may be increased up to 80 in x 48 out by adding EXP1 Expanders. More mic inputs can be added with AM1 and AM2 Automixers.
|The HAL1x replaces the HAL1 in April 2013. The HAL1x has a new Expansion Bus that supports up to 32 Expanders, creating a potential 512 in x 512 outputs by adding a combination of up to 32 Expanders in 3 different EXP models.
|HAL2 supports 18 in x 18 out audio, of which 2 x 2 come from AES3 on XLR connections.
|HAL3 supports 4 in x 8 out audio, of which 2 “Line-Plus” Inputs accept balanced line, or sum stereo unbalanced lines.
Halogen software includes Ethernet control support for third-party control systems. Standard TCP/IP set and get ASCII text messages control levels, selectors, presets and toggle actions within Halogen. Since the same Halogen software code runs on both Windows® and within HAL hardware, third-party control developers can test all their code using only the Halogen Windows software. Use only software to test your control systems software code and buy the hardware only when the install date arrives. Well-documented example programs for AMX, Crestron and Stardraw Control ease programming headaches.
