Simplification of VC, AV and other cabling is something that we strongly recommend to clients in all our projects, because of the cost and management benefits they achieve in projects. But to do this requires a change in the way we approach our cabling infrastructure.

Extron has introduced the new AXP 64 CAT to eliminate the need to pull multiple cables (and reduce  associated expenses like man power), from microphones to digital signal processors in the equipment rack for larger installations.

The system routes signals from the meeting spaces, such as board room/conference room to one or more DMP 128 AT digital matrix processors on the Dante audio network, and also receives and processes signals back to the room from the network all using a simple Ethernet link. It is used to place six mic/line sources onto a network and route any four channels from the network to an amplifier or other destination. It also features an Extron ProDSP with gain, filtering, and dynamics processing for all inputs and outputs.

The flexible input selection enables the AXP 64 C AT to process audio from remote wireless microphones, wall plates, and other sources from anywhere on the Dante network. You can incorporate several AXP 64 C AT or Extron AXP 50 C AT audio expansion processors to create a large mixing matrix with up to 56 remote inputs and 24 outputs per DMP 128 AT using the built-in four-port Gigabit switch.


Input and Output Expansion Using Dante

Key features are as follows :

    Six mic/line level inputs for transmitting audio to a Dante network

    Four inputs with 48 volt phantom power

    4 line outputs receive audio from a Dante network and 4 independent channels of AEC – acoustic echo cancellation

    Four inputs with FlexInput capability to select between analog or Dante inputs

    A wide range of expansion capabilities including a built-in four-port Gigabit switch

    One digital input and dual digital outputs at first four mic/line inputs for control

    Compact 1U, half rack width metal enclosure

    ProDSP 32/64-bit floating point signal processing and low latency DSP processing

    Intuitive Graphical User Environment
