Extron adds 2 interfaces to AXI Dante family

AXI 22 AT and the AXI 44 AT analog audio to Dante interfaces

Extron Electronics has extended its AXI family of Dante audio interfaces with the AXI 22 AT and AXI 44 AT analogue audio to Dante interfaces.

The units feature two inputs / two outputs, or four inputs / four outputs. The quarter rack width units integrate two or four mic or line sources on to a Dante-enabled audio system and feature switchable 48 volt phantom power. The AXI 22 AT offers two line level outputs, while the AXI 44 AT features four line level outputs for routing Dante channels from the network to an audio system. Level select, gain, and phantom power settings are controllable from the front panel, via DSP Configurator Software, or by using SIS commands via the LAN and USB ports. Both models interface with Dante-equipped audio processors over a standard local area network, and can be powered through PoE. 

AXI 22 AT and AXI 44 AT accept analogue mic and line sources, which are converted at 24-bit with selectable sampling rates from 44.1 to 96 kHz, for output via Dante. The interfaces are connected into a Dante network over Ethernet using standard IP networking protocols. The units can be mounted under desks, in lecterns, or in millwork, as well as in a rack.
