The Soundweb London BLU-800 offers configurable I/O, configurable signal processing, CobraNet audio and a high bandwidth, fault tolerant digital audio bus.

The BLU-800 has open architecture which is fully configurable through HiQnet™ London Architect. A rich palette of processing and logic objects and a "drag and drop" method of configuration provide a simple and familiar design environment.

This processor features CobraNet audio with primary and secondary ports for fault tolerance. Control is through a separate Ethernet port which allows CobraNet and control networks to be easily separated or mixed depending upon requirements.
