Mandozzi Updates Range of Mixers, Switchers
Swiss firm offers Serix and CiMix mixers, more
Mandozzi says its new digital audio routing switcher,
Idea can be interfaced with most audio input and output standards, including
analog, AES/EBU, 2 Mbps, IP, MADI, ATM and Gigabit.
Internal digital signal processors manage all
processing functions, while the switcher carries out programmable automatic
time/date-controlled connections and disconnections (scheduling) of single
lines or line groups. In addition, users can remotely pre-program connections via
GPIO, serial or IP signals.
Also from Mandozzi is the stand-alone Serix mixer,
which can operate autonomously with its own DSP and switching elements and can
also be integrated into larger systems, where it remotely controls a central
matrix. In the latter configuration, Serix is able to select input and output
lines of the matrix, establish intercom connections between the mixers and
mixbox units, remotely control mic preamps, mute and GPIO of other mixers. It
can also control a central pool of telephone hybrids, ISDN codecs and
Mandozzi's IP codecs.
Finally, the CiMix console features a mixer surface
with 12 or 16 faders. It is available in both tabletop and flush-mount versions
and offers a core unit called “concentrator,” which hosts switching and DSP
processors as well as the audio and GPIO interfaces in 1RU. It connects to the
control surface via a standard Cat-5 cable.
