The Media Technology Systems AMX 8.8 is a CobraNet® full rack width1U rack mount configuration with 8 analog mic/line inputs and 8 analog outputs and DSP controlled automixer function built in.

Overview       Specifications

The MTSI AMX 8.8CN is a 1U rack mount Automatic Microphone Mixer with 8 analog mic/line inputs, 8 analog line level outputs, 16 CobraNet® input streams and 16 CobraNet® output streams. The internal DSP processing provides a 16 channel AutoMixer with signal processing for AGC, EQ, High Pass, Low Pass, Compressor and Delay on analog input and output channels, including remote triggering of camera positioning presets. In addition, 3 AMX 8.8CN's can be combined to make a 42x24 matrix. The unique benefit of the AMX 8.8CN is to combine the price point of a simple Automixer product with the networking capability of a CobraNet® port. The cost savings of the MX 8.8CN were generated by stripping out all the ancillary contact closures, digital I/O ports, serial ports, relays, VCA's and wall controller ports found on other CobraNet® products.

In a typical system, one or more AMX 8.8CN's provides the mixing and processing needs of an individual meeting room, while the CobraNet® port offers integration with the DSP in the control room for large Hotel Banqueting or Convention Center events. The AMX 8.8CN saves budget by replacing the costly CobraNet® interfaces in each meeting room, as well as reducing the load on the control room DSP. This benefits the Installer (sells more network solutions), Consultant (meets budget) and Customer (better value).
