The most important innovations compared to the former XIRIUM models first: XIRIUM PRO is constructed modularly. This means that depending on which signal shall be transmitted or received – analog, digital or DANTE – the sending or receiving base station can be equipped with the corresponding module. The repeater module offers further brilliant features: it generates a redundant audio signal, transmits it over a separate propagation path to the receiver, and thus prevents phase cancellation. In the XIRIUM PRO system every single transmitter can have an assigned repeater. Repeaters help to overcome structural barriers, offer extended diversity and increase the [...]
