AXON Introduces New Synapse Audio Shufflers
AXON, a manufacturer of signal processing equipment, has added three SynLite audio shuffler modules within its Synapse modular AV signal processing system.
The three new audio shuffling modules (HAS05E, HAS05M, and HAS05S) cater to situations where repeated corrections and standard channel swapping occur in a multilingual environment. The HAS05M and HAS05S are designed to enable embedded audio processing when the audio is available on the internal Synapse bus; the HAS05M supports 8-channels of audio, and the HAS05S can handle 16. The HAS05E supports 8-channel embedded audio processing and possesses four external AES/EBU inputs.
“The Synapse product range has grown rapidly over recent years,” comments Peter Schut, AXON’s CTO. “The trend in recent developments is towards more functionality in one card. Despite the new capabilities and functionality, there will always be a class of applications where all these options and features could result in an over engineered solution. Preferably, more basic, straightforward, and easily affordable modules will meet the application’s needs. To address that need, Axon has created SynLite — a series of modules for a.o. frame syncing, embedding, de-embedding, and up- and down conversion. Based on the same robust and high quality design as the other Synapse modules, SynLite modules are appropriate for even heavy-duty use.
“Importantly, Synlite modules come at a very attractive and affordable price,” Schut continued. “They are fully compatible with all Synapse and Cortex products and can be mixed and matched with all other modules from the Synapse range preserving the single form-factor design.”
