Extron releases mic/line to Dante audio interface

Extron AXI 22 AT D

Extron has announced the release of AXI 22 AT D, a single-gang Decora-style audio interface for integrating two mic/line sources onto Dante systems.

The product features two XLR audio inputs and switchable 48 V phantom power for connecting and powering condenser microphones, and gain controls for each input. Its outputs route any two channels from the network to an amplifier, or connecting into a secondary wallplate with two XLR outputs of RCA outputs.

It interfaces with audio processors 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 D digitizes two incoming analog mic/line audio channels at 24-bit/48 kHz for output via Dante, and converts two audio channels for its analog line level outputs. It is connected into a Dante network over Ethernet using standard IP networking protocols. 

It can be remotely powered through Power over Ethernet (PoE), using Extron XTP PI 100 and XTP PI 400 power injectors, a network switch equipped with PoE, or a midspan PoE injector.
