Headquartered in Toronto, Xilica has been a prominent name in the development of class-leading configurable DSP systems since it was founded in 2002. Having garnered experience in various areas of pro-audio, including loudspeaker development, Xilica’s founders were convinced that optimized, high-end audio processors would be essential to realizing the potential of the next-generation of audio systems for both live and install.
In particular, it was evident that there were tremendous opportunities in developing the market for floating-point DSPs thanks to their increased economies of scale and general ease-of-use. The need to support high bit-rates also informed the R&D process at Xilica, as early product ranges such as the X Series began to put the company on the global map.
In 2017, Xilica’s flagship offering includes: the Neutrino DSP family, whose products focus on time-efficient configuration; the Uno Series of pre-configured processors for fixed installation; the NeuPanel Series of intuitive remote control devices; and the Rio Series of Dante I/O interface devices. SolaroConsole, Xilica’s programming software, is taking the spotlight too as it continues to develop into a universal control platform for third-party products – emphasizing the role Xilica plays in making integrators’ lives easier.
