xNode, the first and only device that is Livewire+, RAVENNA, and AES67 compliant, gets an exciting new feature.
CLEVELAND, OH & AMSTERDAM, HOLLAND (Stand #8.D47)– 1 September 2016
Axia xNodes are extremely flexible devices. In fact, they are the first and only IP-Audio interfaces that are natively Livewire+, RAVENNA, and AES67 compliant. Every xNode not only supports audio stream interoperability, but also enables advertising/discovery of those streams natively, above and beyond AES67. At IBC 2016, the Telos Alliance will introduce the xNode v2.0 Matrix Mixer feature—one of the most flexible and capable virtual mixers available. The xNode Matrix Mixer lets users mix physical inputs (like mics and playback devices) with digital network sources (like stream inputs) to a single output. With the xNode Matrix Mixer feature, broadcasters can bypass the studio console during automated dayparts and send on-air mixes straight to the transmitter, thus simplifying audio workflows. This one-of-a-kind solution offers the power and flexibility of a big studio mixer switching system in a compact ½ RU device.
"At IBC 2016, we expect to see more interoperability demos than ever before—at the Telos Alliance stand where we will show all our Livewire+ gear, which is inherently fully AES67 compliant; at the Media Networking Alliance stand; at the IBC Interoperability Zone; and all over the show floor," says Marty Sacks, VP of Sales, Support, & Marketing at the Telos Alliance. "The xNode was our first AES67-compliant product, and the new Matrix Mixer feature makes it even more useful and adaptable than ever before. Our customers are raving about it."
