Intelligent Linking

With PiCo-Link, intelligently link audio between co-located Eclipse HX-PiCo frames to expand resources and create a 72-port non-blocking system. Additionally, link to other Eclipse HX matrices using dedicated trunk lines between ports for a networked system.

Fail-Safe Redundancy

Two internal power supplies and built-in sensors offer redundancy and warnings to ensure that there is no system failure at any point during critical use, providing a backup in case of failure or damage to the first power supply.
