Data SheetHAL4MultiprocessorHAL System DescriptionHAL is more than just another DSP drag-and-drop system. It hasrevolutionized system design and installation.HAL is an expert in room combining, paging and distributedaudio systems. This groundbreaking architecture is dimensionsbeyond any solution in any industry. HAL easily guides evennovice users through what used to be complex tasks in just minutes. No intricate matrix mixing or presets are required for roomcombining and paging. No virtual wiring is required to distributepages and background music to multiple, even hundreds of zones.Seamlessly interface HAL to your application with web controls and/or a broad variety of peripheral devices including smartDigital Remotes, Remote Audio Devices (RADs), portable or rackautomixers, audio I/O and logic expansion devices, wall sensors,ambient sensing mics, small remote amplifiers, and an advancedPaging Station.In addition, the HAL Multiprocessor and Halogen softwarecheck the status, location, CAT 5 wiring integrity, and that audiois flowing in all peripheral devices, so you know your system isproperly connected and ready to go.Four HAL multiprocessors provide various audio I/O andcontrol options for both large and small installations. HAL1x supports 16 in x 16 out audio, which may be increased up to 528 in x 528 out by adding up to 32 daisychained Expanders to a single HAL1x. Add a few to hundredsof more mic inputs with AM Automixers. HAL2 supports 18 in x 18 out audio, of which 2 x 2 are viaAES3 on XLR connections. HAL3s supports 6 in x 10 out audio. The 2 “Mic/Line-Plus”Inputs accept balanced, or unbalanced left/right monoed. HAL4 supports 2 in x 2 out audio. The 2 “Mic/Line-Plus”Inputs accept balanced, or unbalanced left/right monoed.See the “HAL Comparison” on page 2.Since the same Halogensoftware code runs on bothWindows and within HALhardware, third-party controldevelopers can test all their codeusing only the Halogen Windows software.

It solves just aboutevery signal processing problem encountered in one and tworoom spaces. Some typical applications include: House of Worship Education / Gymnasium Theatre / Auditorium Health Clubs Basic PA / Small Meeting Room, and combining two rooms.Common device use includes combinations of: Graphic andParametric EQ Feedback Suppression Ambient NoiseCompensation AGC- Compression- Limiting Delay Paging Mixing 2-Zone remote volume control HTML web pagecontrol from tablet, smart phone or iPad.LOCATEThe HAL4 is a 2-Input, 2-Output drag-and-drop DSP devicefor Halogen software. Inputs are Line / Line-Plus / Mic withswitchable 48V phantom. In addition to supporting balancedLine and Mic inputs, this configuration allows connecting a stereopair for conversion to a single L R mono signal input. This versatile, universal audio input configuration accommodates a widevariety of applications. Standard balanced outputs are provided.A single DR port provides support for preset recall, level control and selection functions using a DR1, DR2 or DR3. Supportis also available for 3rd-party and Web Controls using any devicewith a web browser such as a tablet, smart phone or iPad. Theseflexible control options present many possible control solutions.As with other Halogen host products, the HAL4 connects to acomputer via a Gigabit Ethernet Port with Halogen software usedfor initial system setup. The full suite of processing blocks available with other Halogen host devices is available for the HAL4.No other 2-channel DSP gives this much bang for the buck!Data Sheet - 3
