Anaheim, CA (January 30, 2013)—Extron Electronics has introduced three new DMP 128 Digital Matrix Processors with Dante network connectivity from Audinate. This DMP 128 is a 12x8 audio mixer featuring Extron ProDSP automixing, I/O expansion capabilities and available AEC—acoustic echo cancellation.
A built-in four-port Gigabit switch provides direct interconnection of multiple DMP 128 AT units. DMP 128 processors offer a configuration approach to DSP that simplifies mixing, routing, conferencing, and room optimization.
DMP 128 AT models provide scalable audio transport over a local area network using standard Internet protocols. Each processor sends out 24 channels of 24-bit/48 kHz digital audio and can receive 56 channels over the network. A built-in four-port Gigabit switch also provides direct interconnection of multiple DMP 128 AT units to create larger, cost-effective audio matrixes. Dante technology distributes 512x512 audio channels at 24-bit/48 kHz over a single Gigabit Ethernet link, or 48x48 audio channels at 24-bit/48 kHz over a single 100 Mbps Ethernet link, plus integrated control data with low latency. Both Dante and the DMP 128 AT processor's four-port switch are AVB - Audio Video Bridging ready.
The DMP 128 features Extron ProDSP, engineered from the ground up using a 64-bit floating point DSP engine and studio grade 24-bit converters with 48 kHz sampling. ProDSP is managed by the DSP Configurator Software, featuring a GUI that allows for audio system visualization within a single window. All DMP 128 models include an automixer with gated and gain sharing modes for managing up to eight groups of microphone signals.
