Symetrix Launches Trio of Dante I/O Devices for Easy Audio Channel Count Expansion; Updates SymNet Composer

The Symetrix xIn 4 audio input expander, xOut 4 audio output expander, and xIO 4x4 audio input/output expander deliver increased system flexibility to the integration market.

Symetrix has launched three new products allowing integrators to quickly and easily add extra inputs and outputs to their SymNet DSP systems.

The first, Symetrix xIn 4, is an audio input expander for SymNet Dante-scalable systems featuring four mic/line inputs with +48 VDC phantom power. Likewise, Symetrix xOut 4 is an audio output expander featuring four line outputs, designed to capitalize on the surplus processing power of a SymNet Edge or Radius DSP to bring overall system costs down.

The third new device, Symetrix xIO 4x4, is an audio input/output expander for SymNet systems sporting four mic/line inputs, including +48 DVC phantom power, and four line outputs.

All three devices are configured using SymNet Composer software, thereby eliminating any re-quirement for hardware DIP switches, front panel menus, or third-party software. Featuring Sym-Net Edge and Radius DSPs, the products come supplied with PoE injectors while rack mount and surface mount kits are sold separately.

To ensure seamless configuration of the newly-released devices, Symetrix has also released an update to its SymNet Composer software. Version 4.1 expands on the previously-announced inte-gration of Shure, Audio-Technica, Attero Tech, and Stewart Audio products to al-so include British microphone manufacturer Clockaudio, and its CDT100 mic-to-Dante in-terface product which has features including LED powering and microphone motor control.

"The new xIn, xOut, and xIO options increase a system's analog input and/or output channel ca-pacity, resulting in a reduction in overall price per channel," says Brooke Macomber, man-aging director, global sales and marketing at Symetrix. "Half-rack form factors help integrators conserve rack space. If preferred these devices can be surface-mounted. They bring a further di-mension of usability to the SymNet range and strengthen our goal of making integrators' lives eas-ier."
