SymNet EDGE Brochure
Dante gigabit network audio.
Modular I/O.
Open architecture software.
The cutting edge.
SymNet Edge scalable hardware partners with SymNet Composer open architecture software for total
design synergy. Networked audio connections use Dante protocol for ultra low latency. Multiple end user
control options complete the system.
• Four configurable I/O card slots, up to 16 channels total of local I/O plus 128 (64x64) channels of Dante
network audio.
• Eight logic inputs (or four analog control inputs) and eight logic outputs.
• Redundant Dante network audio ports on an internal gigabit switch that eliminates the need for an external
switch in many systems. Systems using 10 or more Edge mainframes and/or mainframes separated by
distances over 100 meters can be implemented with off-the-shelf gigabit hardware.
• Ethernet for configuration and control, and RS-232 for third party control systems.
• User control by Symetrix ARC wall panels, ARC-WEB web app, SymNet SymVue, third-party touch
• Port for optional redundant external power supply.

Edge is designed to meet the I/O
capacity requirements of the bulk
of commercial sound installations.
Edge features four configurable I/O
card slots, up to 16 channels total of
local I/O, plus 128 (64x64) channels
of Dante network audio. Flexible I/O
and plug-and-play networking enable multiple
Edge units to scale to your projects’ demands.
End user control options for Edge include Symetrix’ ARC wall panels,
ARC-WEB browser-based remote, SymVue custom
standalone user control application, logic I/O, and thirdparty controllers such as Crestron and AMX.
SymNet Composer software manages all aspects of
the Edge hardware including audio, control and security
with an intuitive drag and drop CAD-style interface.
Composer’s fast, fluid navigation accelerates Site File
design with over 500 proven DSP modules.
Built for performance, Edge trumps the competition with DSP efficiency,
consistently providing more processing per project. An internal gigabit switch
provides the bandwidth to unleash the power of Dante to deliver ultra-low
latency networked audio. Multiple units may be connected without additional
third-party network switches, or with additional hardware, configured for
redundant operation with seamless failover.

A&E Specifications
The device shall provide four I/O card slots accepting
any combination of available cards providing up to 16
channels of local I/O. All signal processing, mixing and
routing functions (including I/O levels) shall be controllable
via software. Audio inputs and outputs shall be accessed
via rear panel 3.81 mm terminal block connectors. Some
I/O cards may utilize other connector types.
Network audio expansion shall be provided by the Dante
protocol with a capacity of 128 (64x64) channels. Primary
and Secondary Dante network audio connections shall
be provided for redundant network implementation.
Connectors shall be gigabit RJ45 utilizing CAT6 cable.
A designer software application shall be provided that
operates on a Windows computer, with network interface
installed, running Windows® XP or higher operating
system. Computer connection for configuration shall
be via the device’s rear panel Ethernet connector. All
internal processing shall be digital (DSP). Available DSP
components shall include (but not be limited to) various
forms of: mixers, equalizers, filters, crossovers, dynamics/
gain controls, routers, delays, remote controls, meters,
generators, onboard logic, and diagnostics.
The front panel shall include input and output signal level
indicators, I/O card type indicators as well as indicators
(PRIMARY and SECONDARY). Additionally, a front
panel LCD shall display certain system parameters as
well as allow editing of network parameters and may be
programmed as an ARC for custom user control via the
front panel UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT and ENTER buttons.
