DSP core with 64x64 Dante on a dual NIC, 16 user-configured card slots, Lua scripting engine, optional software-licensed HearClear AEC.

However you choose to deploy processing, Solaro provides a right-size for your room.

Locate processing in-room, or centralize in an IT datacenter to cost-optimize the implementation of multiple rooms. Solaro offers footprints that handle both with ease, incorporating the industry’s smallest-form-factor processor1 and a rack-mounted enterprise core. Mount under a table, behind a display, or in a drop-ceiling with the PoE-powered Solaro QR1. Or cater to high-channel-count and distributed applications with the Solaro FR1.

Built for unified communications.

Built to outperform in the most demanding web-based collaboration environments, Solaro easily handles Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Google Hangouts with class-leading performance. Interoperability with select platforms allows for driverless USB volume and mute sync with peripherals in your system, such as ceiling microphones.

Always hear clearly.

Realistic, natural-sounding audio is delivered by class-leading HearClear™ acoustic echo cancellation. Utilizing knowledge from thousands of runtime hours, HearClear eliminates far-end echo with sophisticated algorithms to give collaborators a seamless and noise-free experience.

Keeping things under control.

Powerful integrated control engine functionality within every Solaro processor helps run a full AVC system with fewer components. Connect touchscreens and wall-pads to Solaro over Ethernet and eliminate costly third-party control systems, leveraging built-in Lua scripting cores and native modules for Technology Vendor Partners. And when you do want to use a third-party controller, Solaro connects to Crestron® and AMX® systems in a few clicks.

Deliver a streamlined network experience.

Leverage standard network infrastructure to route audio and control across a facility with Solaro’s in-built Layer 3 Dante™ functionality, or benefit from Ethernet-to-Ethernet AV systems without proprietary cable and connectors. Safeguard bandwidth and ring fence security with an onboard dual NIC² to achieve physical separation of data and audio networks. And with both primary and secondary Dante networks, Solaro can deliver for mission-critical use cases where redundancy is key.

Breakthrough performance with the Xilica X8™ chip.

Harnessing two decades of processor innovation, the Xilica X8 System-on-a-Chip (SoC) delivers astonishing power for enterprise-grade applications with a lightning-fast CPU, best-in-class MIPS/mW performance, and minimal power consumption. It also provides exceptional audio quality, with 40-bit floating point processing and class-leading 32-bit signal conversion, backed by sampling rates of up-to 96kHz. Hearing the difference is easy.
