Trilogy’s Gemini is a scalable matrix intercom system with 64 channels of Digital Signal Process (DSP)-based IP communications support, up to 12 camera channels and an enhanced front panel with alarm features. The Gemini system offers 8 to 32 local ports for panels, analog and digital audio interfaces and telephony, within a single 2RU matrix. Gemini can be expanded to 8 matrices with 256 ports via the dual redundant ring connectivity that provides program quality performance for hundreds of simultaneous conversations with near-zero latency a digital audio network (High Speed Link – HSL).
A range of interface boards may be selected in any combination for connection to conventional control panels over CAT5, analog 4-wire audio equipment, analog telephone lines, AES/MADI streams or IP-enabled panels. The optional IP capability allows up to 64 channels of voice to be carried over any standard IP network to other Trilogy matrices. It also carries all inter-matrix messaging and system configuration data. Gemini’s GPI capability allows external control access to an extensive array of audio routing and logic functions.
Based on a distributed architecture, rather than a single central matrix, the Gemini’s integrated IP connectivity allows the system to expand to virtually any geographical location over LAN, WAN or Internet. Gemini interfaces to IP-based systems and devices, for example, VoIP phone systems, smart phones and tablets, as well as a means to establish intelligent communication between disparate intercom suppliers.
