Audio Operating Modes (modes determine how the audio signal is processed by the XMC-2):
Reference Stereo Mode: Purist stereo mode with no bass management; analog signals remain pure analog.
Direct Mode: Minimal processing with bass management.
Surround Mode: Full surround sound processing, with bass management and room correction.
Stereo Mode: Full bass management and room correction for stereo input signals.

Cutting Edge Operating System and Processors Main System Processor:
The XMC-2 is controlled by our own proprietary Linux-based operating system, and by several powerful DSP engines, each running custom software code.
The main control functions on the XMC-2 are handled by a Texas Instruments AM-1808 Sitara Arm9 32 bit 375MHz processor.
The XMC-2 is a pure video switch; video inputs are switched directly to the appropriate output without any unnecessary processing. Video switching on theXMC-2 is handled by three Panasonic MN864788 High Speed LSI 4k UHD Video Switches.
All audio decoding and post processing is handled by twin Analog Devices, dual-core, 450 MHz DSP engines.
Audio digital-to-analog conversion is performed by AKM AK4490 Verita DACs (operating in fully balanced Mono mode on the front three channels; fully balanced stereo mode for the remaining channels).
