By PSW Staff • July 3, 2009 Two views of the new EAW DX1208 matrix mixer (Be sure to visit PSW's 2009 InfoComm New Product Gallery.) The new EAW DX1208 DSP matrix mixer, introduced at 2009 InfoComm in Orlando, is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of commercial and installation applications, incorporating features that are the direct result of end-user feedback. The DX1208 is a 12-input, 8-output 1U rack-space DSP matrix mixer, with eight inputs mic/line capable and selectable 48-volt phantom power provided when the user selects mic level. Four additional inputs on unbalanced RCA connectors allow the users to “stack” inputs, increasing the number of audio sources that can be connected. An additional four digital inputs are available on S/PDIF with sample rate conversion to 48 kHz. All 12 inputs are included in the audio matrix and can be assigned DSP functions prior to distributing signal at line level. The DX1208 can also receive up to six logic inputs and send up to three logic outputs, combined on a single 18-pin connector and programmable via the included EAW DX Navigator software. The DX1208 has serial RS-232 remote capabilities via a DB9 connector on the rear panel, for control by AMX/Crestron and other third party integrated control systems. Two RJ-45 connections are provided as well, for linking multiple (up to eight) DX Link-enabled products together in a ring network topology. A remote control port (RJ-25 connector) is included on the rear panel, facilitating the linking of two different types of remotes, all mounted on wall panels. Up to 10 remotes can be attached to the DX1208, and each is individually addressable. The DX1208 is supplied with EAW DX Navigator software that allows access to all of the system’s settings and configurations. The expected range of user-adjustable processing such as EQ filters, gates, compressors/limiters, priority assignment, delay, gain and crossovers are included. In addition, up to 24 programmable presets are available per DX1208; the programming interface is flexible, with connection via the USB port on the front panel or the Ethernet jack or DB9 connector on the rear panel. The DX1208 employs a universal power supply, 100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz. DX1208 Features: • 32-bit DSP and 24-bit analog-digital conversion • Eight balanced mic/line inputs and four unbalanced line inputs • Four digital input channels via S/PDIF • Six programmable logic inputs, three programmable logic outputs • 16-channel DX Link expansion bus • USB, Ethernet and RS-232 connectivity EAW Website Comments Have something to say about this PSW content?
