Kramer Unveils the Industry’s First Audio Matrix with DSP and Interchangeable I/Os

Kramer Electronics has unveiled the industry first 20-port audio matrix with DSP and interchangeable inputs and outputs at ISE 2019. AFM‑20DSP provides configuration flexibility and eliminates I/O limitations with its 20 interchangeable analog audio ports, letting AV professionals get more functionality for less real estate.

AFM-20DSP also packs eight AEC channels, auto feedback suppression, Dante support, built-in Hi-Z and Lo-Z 120W power amplification, and complete DSP functionality powered by Xilica — who has been a prominent name in the development of class-leading configurable DSP systems since its establishment in 2002. Not overlooking video requirements, AFM-20DSP provides HDMI embedding and de-embedding at 4K60 4:2:0. AFM‑20DSP even claims both fixed and open architecture, enabling AV professionals to use predefined sound configurations or configure a system from scratch.

AFM-20DSP is designed to be integrated in existing AV installations including boardrooms, multipurpose spaces, auditoriums, sports bars, houses of worship, live events, broadcast facilities and recording studios.

AFM-20DSP will be available in the second quarter of 2019. Here are all the specs.
