Extron announced the availability of the XMP 240 Expansion Matrix Processor, featuring a mix matrix with 24 channels of Acoustic Echo Cancellation. It also has 48×48 Dante connectivity in a half-rack space. The XMP 240 can also be used stand-alone for matrix processing in an all-network audio system. When connected to a DMP Plus Series processor via Dante or the EXP expansion port, a complete system is created that offers up to 36 channels of AEC, a USB audio interface, analog connectivity, and optional voice over IP. A system expanded with an XMP 240 is capable of supporting multiple beamforming microphone arrays alongside numerous other Dante sources, with enough outputs to support multiple zones and destination devices. Ideal for network audio systems based on Dante or AES67, the XMP 240 allows for high-channel-count audio input and output processing.
With connectivity for up to 48 sources and 48 destinations via Dante or AES67, the XMP 240 is ideal for applications that utilize many network audio devices. Dante Domain Manager support provides user authentication, role-based security, and expansion of Dante systems over any network infrastructure.
