Imagine - a True Wireless 8x24 Matrix
With Summit’s wireless network technology you can create a virtual matrix transmitting 8 channels of high resolution audio to up to 24 receivers across distances up to 70 meters unobstructed line-of-sight, with 48 kHz sample rate audio.
No Compression & No Compromise
Our wireless technology is uniquely suited to demanding pro applications. Every channel we transmit is a full 24 bit audio stream at sample rates of either 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz or 96 kHz – system selectable on the fly.
Audio latency is typically the Achilles heel for Pro audio systems – but not Summit’s. Our network provides fixed latencies of just 2.6 ms and 5.1 ms at 96 kHz and 48 kHz, respectively. And when we say fixed – it is! Latency does not vary with distance, number of channels. What’s more, our channel to channel skew is a mere ±1 μs; measured from any receiving channel to another.
High Quality of Service
Summit Wireless operates across the uncongested U-NII
5 GHz spectrum with up to 24 RF channels available. Compare that to only 3 non-overlapping channels in
2.4 GHz and 5 channels in 5.8 GHz. More is always better.
RF interference can destroy wireless audio. The Summit system is constantly monitoring for clear channels. When RF interference is detected, the system seamlessly switches to a clear channel before you experience audio disruptions. The transmitter coordinates with all the speakers to simultaneously jump in between audio samples without the listener hearing a thing.
Easy to Integrate
Our transmitter modules and our receiver modules take I2S audio in and out. The system MCU can setup and control the network via an I2C bus. A back-channel is available for data transfer between receivers and the transmitter to facilitate status indications and alerts.
1 to 8 discrete audio streams may be transmitted on a single network. Receiver modules can be configured to accept and output either 1 or 2 audio channels. Any of the 8 transmitted channels can be selected by any receiver, up to 24 receivers in total.
Summit's API provides full support for setup, configuration, control, diagnostics, status, and firmware update at the transmitter. Some aspects of configuration and control can occur at the receiver for ease of setup.
Our XD modules are designed with high power RF amplifier to boost the network’s operating range to up to 70 meters unobstructed line-of-sight, 48 kHz sample rate.
