Anaheim, California (May 6, 2014) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the BUC 202, a two channel balanced and unbalanced audio converter, and audio line driver. It features two balanced or unbalanced inputs and outputs, both on captive screw connectors. The BUC 202 provides two independent channels of signal matching between unbalanced and balanced audio equipment. Two rotary switches provide precise trim adjustment from -21 to +21 dB in clearly-labeled 3 dB steps. In addition to serving as an interface from consumer products to professional AV systems, the BUC 202 is a high-quality line driver for sending and receiving audio signals up to 1,000 feet (300 m). The unique 1U, quarter rack width enclosure, together with the included patented ZipClip 200 mounting bracket, offers the versatility to install the BUC 202 in a discreet location, such as on a rack rail, beneath a table, or within a lectern.

"The BUC 202 demonstrates Extron's continued dedication to offering best-in-class audio 'problem-solver' products," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "It features several new design enhancements with unique installation features and refinements in audio performance, enabling high quality integration of consumer audio products with professional systems while being mounted in a hidden location."

The BUC 202 is ideal for typical applications where a laptop is connected at the lectern and the audio needs to reach a remote equipment rack. The BUC 202 can be easily hidden by mounting the ZipClip 200 to any surface inside the lectern, while the unique form factor of the audio converter allows installers to snap it securely onto the mount. For added convenience, detented level controls on the BUC 202 enable precise source input matching and gain structure. The BUC 202 also includes an Extron-engineered, energy efficient internal power supply that reduces operating costs and provides a very long operational lifespan.
