Extron Electronics recently introduced the AXI 02 AT, a compact audio interface that extracts two channels from a Dante audio network.
This 1/8 rack width Dante audio interface provides two channels of output to devices without Dante connectivity. It features two line level analog outputs and a mirrored two-channel S/PDIF output.
The AXI 02 AT “interfaces with any Dante-equipped audio device, such as an Extron DMP 128 Plus C AT, over a standard local area network, and is powered through PoE,” according to an Extron press release.
The AXI 02 AT is also compatible with Extron Rack Shelves and ZipClip mounting solutions.
“Dante is the preferred audio networking solution deployed by AV integrators across all professional AV environments,” says Casey Hall, VP of worldwide sales and marketing for Extron, in the company announcement.
“The AXI 02 AT provides a compact, cost-effective solution for taking two channels from the Dante network and providing the signal to local devices.”
Dante “enables audio system scalability over a local area network using standard Internet protocols,” according to the press release.
The family of Dante-enabled products from Extron work together as part of a complete networked audio system solution and integrate with other Dante-enabled products to create efficient, scalable system designs.
They accommodate a wide range of audio routing needs in a variety of applications.
Extron began shipping its AXI 016 audio expansion interface earlier this month.
The AXI 016 “connects to the EXP expansion port on the DMP 128 Plus, transforming the matrix from an 8 output device into a 24 output device,” according to the press release in August.
The compact audio interface also “supports audio DSP systems that integrate a DMP 128 Plus and a DTP CrossPoint matrix switcher,” the press release says.
The AXI 016 audio expansion interface “provides a powerful tool for AV system designers to create DMP 128 Plus systems that support larger distributed audio applications that were previously not possible using a single DMP 128 Plus DSP processor,” according to the announcement.
