ISE 2017: Symetrix introducing AES67 support, USB interface

Symetrix will debut several new products and updates at ISE 2017 (booth 3-A122), including the latest Composer software developments for Symetrix Radius, Prism, Edge, and Solus NX series DSPs and accessories.

Adding to Composer’s support for an existing array of third-party products from Clock Audio, Powersoft, Ashly, Attero Tech, and Stewart Audio, recent releases have offered integration of the Shure MXA910 and MXA310 beam-forming array microphones and Audio-Technica ATND8734 Dante mic module. In an upcoming Composer release, Symetrix Dante-enabled DSPs will support AES67, providing enhanced network audio interoperability.

In addition, Symetrix is announcing a USB interface card for the Radius and Edge DSPs. The optional card supports up to eight input and 8 output channels for courtroom, meeting archival, and other multi-channel recording applications.

According to Trent Wagner, Symetrix senior product manager, "Our native software support of select Dante-enabled third-party products reinforces our position as the pre-eminent DSP provider for Dante-based systems. Our upcoming support for AES67 adds an unparalleled level of network audio interoperability, enabling Symetrix customers to design systems with greater flexibility and fewer restrictions than ever. In particular, we’re very pleased with the pairing of our Radius AEC and Shure MXA910, having already deployed the duo in hundreds of installations since last August."

ISE attendees will be able to review the entire line of Symetrix products including the recently released "stand-alone" Solus NX series as well as the new Prism 0x0, a processing, mixing, and routing engine for Dante-enabled end points.
