ARX Systems announced the launch of the USB DI-Q USB-Analog interface; a solution for interfacing and monitoring the playback of audio evidence files in a courtroom or similar environment.
The USB DI-Q allows the user to monitor and cue audio files in a closed headphone environment and switch/enable the audio output to a public address/sound system as required. The simplicity of the setup of the USB DI-Q means that this product can be integrated easily into the existing AV infrastructure of a building. Once in place, the USB — DI-Q only requires touch button operation and the simple user interface means that it is easy to use by non-technical operators.
The USB DI-Q is ideal for interfacing any USB equipped computer (especially notebook computers) with the balanced inputs of professional sound systems. The USB DI-Q installs as a fully compatible “plug-and-play” generic USB audio device, requiring no special driver program installation on Mac OS X, Windows XP, 7/8/10 and includes a USB-A to USB-B cable.
The front panel features an overall playback volume control for both headphone and XLR outputs and an “enable audio to Court” switch and indicator LED. The rear panel has a Type B USB input socket and LED status LED, Summed (mono) Output XLR with Groundlift switch and a 6.5-millimeter/1/4″ Headphone Output socket.
