Extron AXI 016 16-Output Audio Expansion Interface Is Now Shipping

Published: October 27, 2017
Extron AXI 016 audio expansion interface also supports audio DSP systems that integrate a DMP 128 Plus and a DTP CrossPoint matrix switcher.

Extron Electronics first introduced the Extron AXI 016 in August – a sixteen output audio expansion interface for DMP 128 Plus audio DSP systems. The Anaheim, Calif.-based manufacturer says it’s now shipping.

The AXI 016 audio expansion interface connects to the EXP expansion port on the DMP 128 Plus, transforming the matrix from an 8 output device into a 24 output device, according to the Extron press release in August.

Since all of the high performance, low-latency DSP processing occurs within the attached DMP 128 Plus, no separate configuration is needed for the new product.

The audio expansion interface also supports audio DSP systems that integrate a DMP 128 Plus and a DTP CrossPoint matrix switcher, Extron adds in the press release.

“There’s been a growing demand from our customers for the ability to expand the number of outputs on a DMP 128 Plus System,” says Casey Hall, VP of world wide sales and marketing, Extron.

“The AXI 016 addresses the growing demand from our customers for the ability to expand the number of outputs on a DMP 128 Plus System with a very cost-effective solution,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of World Wide Sales and Marketing for Extron.

“By leveraging the DMP 128 Plus system with its ProDSP and flexible mix matrix, the AXI 016 expands system capabilities with sixteen additional outputs in a small 1U, half rack width product.”

The AXI 016 audio expansion interface provides a powerful tool for AV system designers to create DMP 128 Plus systems that support larger distributed audio applications that were previously not possible using a single DMP 128 Plus DSP processor.

The DMP 128 Plus models feature 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 128 Plus AT model, Dante® audio sources can also be processed and routed to the outputs of the AXI 016.
