The E44 from Lynx Studio Technology is a PCI Express card that deliverers 4 channels of mastering-quality analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion, as well as 4 channels digital I/O with wordclock. The card is ideal for capturing and archiving historic and classic material, broadcast applications, audio measurement, and audio production, as well as military, medical, and industrial applications that require full audio spectrum capabilities with extreme accuracy and reliability.
The E44 PCIe provides high bandwidth, low latency, and minimal interference from operating system processes. The field-programmable hardware can be updated via online firmware updates, ensuring the card's longevity as newer features and technologies are released. Up to four cards can be installed into a single computer and with the included Lynx mixer application, the E44 can turn a computer into a powerful digital router or patchbay with zero-latency monitoring, accurate metering, extensive flexibility, and minimal cabling.
Offering a solution for jitter problems in AES signals, the card incorporates SynchroLock technology that provides extreme jitter tolerance at all inputs. By coupling statistical analysis with low-noise clock generation techniques, SynchroLock is able to extract a very clean clock from AES signals affected by long cable lengths and other noise sources.
