Las Vegas, NV (March 9, 2018)—At NAB 2018, Jünger Audio will launch AIXpressor, an audio processing platform that will first be embodied in the AIXpressor hardware unit. Rather than being a single product, the unit acts as a base for software-defined products that are created using Jünger’s new Flexible Audio Infrastructure flexAI.
As a result, broadcasters and post production facilities can customize the audio processing system to meet their needs for processing capabilities and channel count by buying additional software licenses. The system scales in terms of processing power; the system is equipped to cascade additional AIXpressors or servers, whenever more processing power or media interfaces become necessary.
All software products created using flexAI will be licensed flexibly, which means that users can incorporate additional functionality, increase channel count or shift licenses between devices. Users who buy a software product license are free to decide how many audio programs they want to process and what type of processing they want to be installed.

Debuting at NAB 2018, AIXpressor will be released; the 19” 1RU device is based on x86 processors and equipped with a range of built-in interfaces, including redundant Audio-over-IP with full compatibility to AES67 and SMPTE ST2110, USB host and client interfaces as well as MADI, AES/EBU and analog I/Os. The unit also has four slots for optional interfaces, all of which are compatible with Junger Audio’s existing D*AP series of audio processors. These include 3G/HD/SD SDI, MADI, Audinate DanteTM and many more. Additional interfaces will be available soon.
Jünger Audio has also developed a new optical connection called tieLight that can reportedly transmit up to 1,152 audio channels in each direction. TieLight is utilized for cascading multiple devices and for setting up larger systems that require several processors. It is an inherent part of the AIXpressor and will be available as a PCIexpress interface card to be used in Jünger Audio’s upcoming line of servers.
