Extron Electronics has introduced the FOX AEX 108, an eight-port fiber optic audio extractor for independent processing and routing of audio signals in a fiber optic AV distribution system.
Each port accepts signals from a FOX Series transmitter to extract a two-channel analog audio signal for processing, and then re-transmits the original signal to a FOX Series receiver.
To simplify integration with mixers, DSP devices, and audio amplifiers, the FOX AEX 108 provides both balanced and unbalanced stereo.
Buffered loop-throughs feature output reclocking and full transmitter power levels to ensure signal integrity.
Available in multimode and singlemode models, the FOX AEX 108 is great for use in FOX Matrix system applications that require extraction of audio signals for local processing and independent distribution.
“System designers and integrators that rely on Extron FOX Series products for fiber optic AV signal distribution now have a new option to route audio within the equipment room,” says Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron. “The FOX AEX 108 provides an easy way to extract audio signals for independent processing while maintaining the integrity and convenience of the fiber optic link.”
The FOX AEX 108 is part of the larger, expansive FOX Series of fiber optic products from Extron. It is compatible with FOX Series matrix switchers, switchers, distribution amplifiers, and HDMI, DVI, VGA, VGA/YUV, and AV transmitters and receivers.
Housed in a compact 1U, half-rack width metal enclosure, the FOX AEX 108 is designed to provide convenient access for audio signal processing and routing from an equipment room.
