Vanco International unveiled additions to the PulseAudio line. Audio technicians can now extend multiple audio sources up to 984 feet (300 m) over a single Cat 5e/6 cable. Vanco's two new products enable simple and affordable analog audio capture and transmission in both installed and live applications.
PA-EXMIX Mixing Microphone and Analog Audio Extender
The PA-EXMIX extends analog audio signals up to 984 feet (300m). It is comprised of two units: a transmitter and receiver. The transmitter captures up to two audio inputs (XLR and AUX) and carries them over a single Cat5e/6 cable. The receiver converts the signal to balanced XLR and 3.5 mm stereo audio outputs. Both units are powered by a single power supply on the receiver end using Power over Cable (PoC).
The PA-EXMIX supports both dynamic and condenser mics. Users can easily mix between the XLR and stereo audio inputs using a built-in dial on the transmitter unit.
PA-TXMIX Digital/Analog Audio Transmitter
The PS-TXMIX is a digital/analog audio transmitter that can be used to expand a PA-EXMIX system. Integrators can create PA-EXMIX solutions with more than two audio sources by adding PT-TXMIX transmitters and cascading them over a single Cat5e/6 cable. Each transmitter unit features both XLR and AUX inputs, a built-in dial for mixing sources, and PoC drawn from the receiver.
"Our new PulseAudio Extender and Transmitter can dramatically simplify the cable infrastructure for live events requiring a combination of voice reinforcement and program audio—no more giant cable snake tripping hazards.” say Randy Blanchard, director of audio products for Vanco. “These boxes are a skeleton key for faster, easier, safer setup.”
