 AXI 016 16 Output Audio Expansion Interface 60-1690-01

The Extron AXI 016 is a half rack width, 16 output audio expansion interface for DMP Plus Series audio DSP systems. The AXI 016 connects to EXP expansion port of the DMP Plus Series, adding 16 outputs to the matrix. Since all of the high performance, low-latency DSP occurs within the attached DMP Plus model, no separate configuration is needed for the AXI 016. The AXI 016 audio expansion interface also supports audio DSP systems that integrate a DTP CrossPoint® matrix switcher.

Offering 16 analog outputs, in a compact 1U, half-rack width enclosure, the AXI 016 provides a powerful tool for AV system designers to create DMP Plus systems that support larger distributed audio applications that were previously not possible using a single DMP Plus Series DSP processor.

Expanded Routing Across a Single ProDSP Processor

The DMP EXP expansion port allows the AXI 016 to be linked together with a DMP Plus Series unit via a single shielded CAT 6 cable. This expands the matrix output by 16 channels, allowing larger distributed audio applications to be configured with less hardware. Designers can create flexible, advanced output signal management scenarios expanding the capabilities of a single DMP Plus Series processor. The DMP EXP expansion port on Extron DTP CrossPoint® matrix switchers allows an integrator to greatly expand the number of available audio outputs for a new or existing DTP System.

Flexible Routing Within the DMP Plus Series

The DMP Plus Series features an extensive mix matrix allowing all outputs, including the 16 expansion bus outputs used by the AXI 016, to be discretely sourced and routed from any input. When used with a DMP Plus Series AT model, Dante audio sources can also be processed and routed to the outputs of the AXI 016.

Easy-to-Use DSP Configurator Software

The power of ProDSP is easily harnessed with the DSP Configurator Software. The flexible on‑screen layout offers fast access to all of the digital audio signal processing tools. Designers can quickly get a snapshot view of the entire audio system, including processing blocks and routing assignments, all at once.
