RidePlayerX has been carefully designed to be the perfect solution for the unique challenges of on-board (vehicle-based) audio and show control systems within themed attractions. 

The requirement to precisely synchronize on-board audio with wayside audio, video, lighting, animatronics, etc. is critical for most ride applications. RidePlayerX accomplishes this by implementing our state-of-the-art SyncCore system that can use one of several industry-standard methods such as PTP, NTP, GPS, and SMPTE LTC to maintain lock between on-board and wayside devices.

The ability to integrate with common on-board sub-systems is also easily achievable thanks to power and flexibility of the integrated Alcorn McBride X-Series Show Control engine. This means seamless integration with devices like on-board PLCs, animation controllers, sensors, lighting systems, video servers, and ShowTouch panels.

The primary purpose of this device is to provide high-quality audio playback so it has a wide-range of features to suit that purpose well. It provides 16 outputs of 24-bit 48kHz uncompressed audio playback with the ability to route, mix, and crossfade up to 64 source tracks simultaneously. These outputs can be cleanly distributed to our RideAmp family of on-board amplifiers using all-digital Dante or AES67 network audio. To ease production workflow, support gaming engines, and integrate with paging systems, this same network audio interface can also accept up to 16 external audio inputs and elegantly mix them into the on-board audio system.
