Cleveland, OH (May 24, 2016)—The Telos Alliance announced that the latest Axia xNode software update, version 2.0, transforms any Axia AES/EBU, analog, mixed-signal, or microphone xNode into a Matrix Mixer, opening up a variety of new applications.
In one use case, the output of the Matrix Mixer could send on-air program content from multiple channels of an automation system directly to the transmission chain, bypassing a studio mixing desk to allow better studio utilization during certain dayparts.
The tool gives broadcast engineers the capability to create the mix they need by integrating both physical inputs and digital network inputs into the Matrix Mixer, making the xNode a gateway device that allows for mixing or converting inputs to outputs.
For example, three Axia Livewire streams can be converted into a different one, like an AES67 stream. Or if a user has four AES3 physical inputs converted into four AoIP streams they could be summed into a fifth AoIP stream.
