Audio Expansion Interfaces with Dante
The Extron AXI 22 AT and AXI 44 AT are quarter rack width audio interfaces for integrating mic/line sources onto a Dante™-enabled audio system, and for distributing line level audio from a Dante-enabled audio system. They feature two or four mic/line inputs with selectable input gain and switchable 48 volt phantom power, controllable from the front panel. Input gain, output attenuation and phantom power can also be remotely controlled via DSP Configurator Software, or by SIS command. Both models interface with any Dante-equipped audio product, such as an Extron DMP 128 Plus C V AT, over a standard local area network, and can be powered through PoE. This allows a single network cable connection for bidirectional audio and power from a central equipment rack. The AXI 22 AT features two mic/line inputs and two line level outputs, and the AXI 44 AT features four mic/line inputs and four line level outputs.
Easily Provide Local or Remote Connectivity into Audio Systems
The AXI 22 AT and AXI 44 AT accept analog mic/line sources, which are digitized at 24-bit for output via Dante. The interfaces are connected into a Dante network over Ethernet using standard IP networking protocols. This avoids the effort and expense of pulling long analog cables back to the AV rack. With their small, quarter rack form factor, the AXI 22 AT and AXI 44 AT can be easily mounted under a desk, in a lectern, or in millwork, as well as in a rack.
For additional integration convenience, AXI 22 AT and AXI 44 AT can be remotely powered via Power over Ethernet - PoE, using Extron XTP PI 100 or XTP PI 400 power injectors, network switches equipped with PoE, or midspan PoE injectors.
Dante Audio Networking
Dante enables audio system scalability over a local area network using standard Internet protocols. 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.
