ISE 2017: Symetrix announces new products and AES67 support30 January 2017
Symetrix will debut a number of products and updates at ISE next week including the latest Composer software developments for Symetrix Radius, Prism, Edge, and Solus NX series DSPs and accessories.
Adding to Composer’s support for an existing array of third-party products from Clock Audio, Powersoft, Ashly, Attero Tech, and Stewart Audio, recent releases have included integration of the Shure MXA910 and MXA310 microphones and the Audio-Technica ATND8734 Dante mic module. In an upcoming Composer release, Symetrix Dante-enabled DSPs will support AES67, providing enhanced network audio interoperability.
In addition, Symetrix is adding a USB Interface card for Radius and Edge DSPs. The optional card supports up to eight input and eight output channels for courtroom, meeting archival, and other multi-channel recording applications. Also of note are driverless ‘plug and play’ profiles for the 2×2 line I/O and 1×1 speakerphone, coupled with the ability to disable soft codec AECs in favour of Symetrix hardware AECs.
Trent Wagner, Symetrix senior product manager, said: “Our native software support of select Dante-enabled third party products reinforces our position as the pre-eminent DSP provider for Dante-based systems. Our upcoming support for AES67 adds an unparalleled level of network audio interoperability, enabling Symetrix customers to design systems with greater flexibility and fewer restrictions than ever. In particular, we’re very pleased with the pairing of our Radius AEC and Shure MXA910, having already deployed the duo in hundreds of installations since last August.”
Symetrix has also announced that its two Line VoIP Interface Card, as of Composer version 5.41, is compliant with key teleconferencing solutions from Avaya. The VoIP card natively integrates with both narrow and wide-band audio codecs, providing a full range of telephony functionality. The two Line VoIP Card has been compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Aura Session Manager 7.0.1 and Avaya Aura Communication Manager 188.8.131.52 FP1 SP1.
