In many cases the need for an audio receiver can be eliminated by using the audio features of the ProAudio™ Series.

Audio and tone control are adjustable in 0.5dB steps, and all allow direct or relative adjustments (Ex: Set the volume to an absolute -12.5dB, or increase it by 3.0dB). The tone controls have a range of +/-20dB.

Zektor’s renowned ProAudio™ DSP preamp audio matrices offer more models than any other brand. That’s why the ProAudio™ is the top recommended DSP preamp in the custom channel. More features with unmatched capabilities and ranges.

Designed exclusively by Zektor’s own engineering team here in the USA, the ProAudio™ range are a versatile and cost effective multi-zone audio system.

5 BAND GRAPHIC EQUALIZER ON EACH ZONE

The ProAudio™ series provides maximum sound control including bas, treble and a 5 band graphic equalizer available for each zone. Audio and tone control are adjustable in 0.5dB steps, and all allow direct or relative adjustments (Ex: Set the volume to an absolute -12.5dB, or increase it by 3.0dB). The tone controls have a range of +/-20dB.

ADJUSTABLE GAIN SETTINGS ON EACH INPUT

To balance the different levels of audio coming from different pieces of equipment, each audio input has a full range gain adjustment. The adjustment range is: +24dB to -99.5dB, or full mute, in 0.5dB increments.

SUBWOOFER CONTROL

With low pass and high pass filter settings adjustable from 50Hz to 300Hz, selectable 12db/24db per octave slope with Butterworth or Linkwitz-Riley filters and selectable polarity for each zone, the ProAudio provides easily adaptable subwoofer control.

DOORBELL/PAGING FEATURES

The doorbell connections on the reverse of the system provides the ability to connect doorbell/pager inputs to any output zone and to automatically lower the current volume and push through the doorbell/pager signal. This can also be adapted for fire/evacuation messages.

VOLUME AND TONE CONTROLS WORK ON THE DIGITAL INPUTS AND OUTPUTS.

For the extreme in ultra-quiet audio and lowest possible distortion, by mirroring the analog outputs to the digital outputs, you can input and output digital audio, completely bypassing the analog sections. No extra conversions are required and you still have volume, balance, bass, treble and 5 band equalizer controls.

AUTOMATIC AUDIO CONVERSION

It makes no difference whether your audio comes in through the analog inputs, digital coax inputs or digital optical inputs, all inputs can be converted to analog to provide full flexiblity.

Note: The ProAudio™ does not down convert DTS or 5.1 Dolby audio. When DTS or 5.1 Dolby audio is detected, it is passed straight through from the digital coax input to the digital coax outputs. Analog inputs cannot be directly converted to digital outputs. To convert analog to digital, a digital output can mirror an analog output.

KEEP IT SIMPLE SERIAL™

Available through the TCP/IP port or the RS-232 port, Zektor’s K.I.S.S.™ is one of the easiest to use, serial port protocols, on the market. Yet the extensive bi-directional command set allows total control over the ProAudio.

FRONT PANEL WITH REMOVABLE RACK EARS

How frustrating is it when your product arrives from a manufacturer with no rack ears? Zektor ships all professional products with the rack ears integrated into the product or with removable ears. Unpack and install directly into the rack.

LIP SYNC DELAY

When moving audio around, lip sync can often be an issue. Within each ProAudio system we provide up to 170ms of lip sync delay so that your audio/video matchup doesn’t look like a 1950’s Godzilla movie.

ZONE LOCKING

Lock as many output zones as you wish to create a group of outputs that all automatically switch simultaneously to the same input source.

STEREO TO MONO DOWNMIX FOR EACH ZONE

For hallways, and outdoor speakers, where stereo is not particularly useful, each zone can be mixed from stereo to mono using a variety of different methods.

Control from TV

Control your devices from your TV remote

WITH HDMI-CEC CONTROL

Imagine being able to control all of your devices (Sky, Blu-Ray Player, Apple TV etc) all from your original TV remote control... CEC control does just that. Gone are the days of 5 remote controls in one room and no need to buy any additional hardware such as universale remotes - you can do it all from your TV remote! Most TVs now support CEC and using our very own libCEC, we've baked that technology into the system. Now you can just use your normal TV remote and press the "Source" key, each of your input devices will be listed and just select the one you want and the matrix will route the video automatically, even if the source does not support CEC itself.

Contextual IR

4 in, 4 out, that's 16 possible combinations of your video. Historically matrixes have offered remotes with 8 or 16 buttons, requiring multiple presses to get video to the TV your watching. We thought this was an odd solution, given you already known which room you are in, so should the matrix! Our designers did away with this old concept and instead created Contextual IR, this reduces the number of buttons to just 4, one for each possible input. Whatever room your in, select 1, 2, 3, 4 and watch that source instantly.

Remote control on your phone

WITH OUR RESPONSIVE WEB INTERFACE

We want to give you the best experience possible, to do this, we think it's important you can access the matrix from any device, be it mobile, tablet or desktop PC and in any browser. We've done this with our responsive design, so it works with you and not the other way round. Our web interface is built directly on top of our REST/API, this means that whatever you can do on your phone, you can get your control system to do also and vice versa. There are no hidden tricks or special codes that require a magic moon dance to work. All of our documentation is free and available on our monitoring site.

Just Ask...

With the neo Alexa skill enabled on your Amazon Echo or Dot you can use commands to turn a certain TV on or off or to switch source devices. Imagine walking out of the lounge at night to continue watching TV in bed, you can simply say 'Alexa, turn off lounge' then 'Alexa, turn on Sky Q in bedroom' and without having to lift a finger the matrix will make your requests happen, including turning on the bedroom TV and switching to the input source with one command.

Install From Laptop

Check your install from anywhere at any time

WITH THE REMOTE MONITORING PORTAL

It's important that you get video all the time, to help us do that your system keeps in contact with our cloud management service. You can tell if this is working with the Monitored LED on the front of the matrix. If you get stuck, your installer or yourself can log into our cloud portal and see helpful diagnosis information (if you let them), fix problems remotely or tell you where you may have gone wrong in the installation. All of this is free of charge. If the matrix has a problem, we get alerted too and we can get in contact to arrange a hardware replacement or give you a step by step guide to get you up and running again.
