Booth C2330 Comrex is introducing ACCESS NX Rack, a rackmount IP audio codec. An update of the Comrex ACCESS Rackmount, it features completely new hardware, allowing for AES67, AES3 or analog audio I/O. ACCESS NX Rack can connect to Wi-Fi and 4G modems, and supports a range of connection protocols and audio encoders. It’s driven via a new HTML5-based web user interface. ACCESS NX Rack is compatible with all Comrex IP audio codecs as well as the Comrex FieldTap smartphone app.
ACCESS NX Rack includes Comrex CrossLock technology, a proprietary suite of tools that solidifies connections over IP networks; and HotSwap, a new function included with the latest version of ACCESS firmware. HotSwap allows users to designate one network as a backup that will only engage when the primary network has failed. Fall-over to backup happens in a matter of seconds, and fallback is seamless.
