As more and more audio travels as AES67 over IP networks monitoring that audio becomes problematic as traditional analog monitors are incapable of keeping up.
Sonifex has seen an opportunity with its new AVN-PXH12. The AVN-PXH12 is a 12 x 2 mix monitor that decodes up to 24 AES67 audio sources natively.
The 24 audio sources can be selected from any Ravenna, AES67 or AES67-enabled Dante AoIP connected streams or four discrete stereo analog audio inputs (one front-panel 3.5 mm jack, two rear-panel 3.5mm jacks and a rear-panel stereo XLR input pair).
Each channel features three buttons and an encoder knob. The translucent rotary encoder shows the input level in the knob itself and output mix level in the LEDs around the encoder. The buttons can be used to select the main/secondary input, to mute the channel and to send the audio of that channel to left, right or stereo mix of the output. Pressing the encoder knob lets users solo the channel.
Additionally, Ember+ is used for the control communication allowing remote control of the product using the open Ember+ standard.
A built-in web server provides configuration control of the unit including source assignment to each channel and also allows for firmware updates and configuration backup. The unit can be controlled by suitable Ember+ commands.
A rear panel GPIO connector provides 10 local ports, which can be user configured as inputs or outputs and provide software controlled functionality.
