Extron Ships Fiber Optic Audio Extractor

Extron has started to ship the FOX AEX 108, an eight-port fiber optic audio extractor for independent processing and routing of audio signals in a fiber optic AV distribution system. Each fiber optic input port extracts the two-channel audio signal to provide analog balanced or unbalanced stereo audio. Available in multimode and singlemode models, the FOX AEX 108 is ideal for use in FOX Matrix system applications that require extraction of audio signals for local processing and independent distribution.

After extracting the two-channel audio signal, the FOX AEX 108 re-transmits the original fiber optic signal to maximize the optical budget for long distance transmission. Additionally, the buffered loop-throughs feature output reclocking to reshape and restore the timing of the digital signal.

The FOX AEX 108 is compatible with FOX Series matrix switchers, switchers, distribution amplifiers, and HDMI, DVI Plus, DVI, VGA, VGA/YUV and AV transmitters and receivers. It’s housed in a compact 1U, half-rack width metal enclosure.
