Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce two new fiber optic products for the FOX II Series, the FOX II AEX 108eight-port and PowerCage FOX II AEX 104 four port audio extractors. They provide independent processing and routing of audio signals in a fiber optic AV distribution system. Each fiber optic input port extracts the two channel audio signal to provide analog balanced or unbalanced stereo audio. The audio extractors are available in multimode and singlemode models. The PowerCage FOX II AEX 104, designed to mount in the PowerCage 1600 enclosure, and the rack-mountable FOX II AEX 108 are ideal for use in FOX Matrix systems that require extraction of audio signals for local processing within the equipment room.
“Designers and integrators are in need of a solution that can handle audio extraction, but also support the higher resolutions of today’s installations,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “With these new audio extractors, AV professionals can now provide local, independent audio outputs for the newest generation of fiber optic distribution products while maintaining compatibility with existing extenders and matrix switchers.”
