Polar Audio showed off Attero Tech’s GearBox 18/6 CobraNetNetworked Automixer at the PLASA show in London.

The Gearbox 18/6is an integrated 18 input, 6 output digital automixer with DSP and includes a fully managed 8-port PoE enabled Fast Ethernet switch with a Gigabit Ethernet expansion port. In addition, a WAN port is included for both third party system control and remote system access.

It accepts up to 16 networked digital inputs from any CobraNet input source (e.g. Attero Tech InBoxunits), and has two legacy mic/line analogue inputs, two legacy analogue outputs and four networked digital outputs, with a full 18x6 matrix mixer between inputs and outputs.

In-room remote control is provided by the RV-1 Remote VolumeControl and the RC-4 Room Combining Controller. Both the RV-1and RC-4 are single gang Decora style wall plate controls powered by the GearBox.
