Based on the original UPMAX 2251, the 1RU UPMAX™ produces compelling 5.1-channel audio from two-channel sources in a cost- and space-efficient package. The upmixed output is completely downmix compatible, and nearly indistinguishable from the original two-channel input.
Upmixing can be controlled via the front panel, GPI inputs, or metadata from serial or VANC (SDI) sources applied to the unit. UPMAX also includes a utility encoder that accepts 5.1 channels and produces a two-channel LoRo or LtRt output. This encoder can be independent or it can be fed by the same channels applied to the upmixer.
Auto-sensing HD/SD-SDI I/O is standard, allowing access to all 16 embedded audio channels. Audio can be processed or passed without modification from any embedded input pair to any embedded output pair, allowing utility channel pair shuffling. Dual redundant auto-ranging power supplies are standard, as are bypass relays for trouble-free operation in transmission-critical environments.
