Axon Series Network Audio Interfaces
The Axon D2i is a single-gang Dante/AES67 network audio I/O wallplate, allowing for easy integration of analog devices into network audio applications. It features two XLR+quarter-inch TRS combo inputs for on-ramp of microphones, instruments or mixer outputs in applications where conveniently located audio connectivity is a must. It also includes an Axiom port for integration of Attero Tech by QSC Axiom wallplates (USB, Bluetooth or XLR) for additional I/O customization.
The Axon DBU is a surface-mount Dante/AES67 network audio interface offering bi-directional USB and stereo Bluetooth audio I/O for the Q-SYS Ecosystem. It allows users to connect their personal devices to integrate the room’s audio into their web conferencing applications (such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Google Meet) via USB or Bluetooth. Its compact form factor allows maximizing system design flexibility with capabilities to mount under a table or in a rack.
Axiom Series Analog Audio I/O Extenders
The Axiom AXPio audio expander includes two Flex I/O channels, allowing integrators to pair the AXPio with up to two Axiom wallplates (Axiom ML1, USB1, BT1) to simply and cost-effectively integrate analog audio devices into a room’s audio system, including QSC Business Music mixers and amplifiers. In addition, the AXPio provides RS-232 connectivity for control integration into Q-SYS.
The Axiom USB1 provides bi-directional USB audio connectivity for education, corporate or hospitality applications. With the USB1, users can interface a device’s USB audio with the room’s audio system. It also offers BYOD support, allowing users to connect their laptops and integrate the room’s audio into web conferencing applications.
