The Newest IP Audio Codec From Comrex Arrives


Comrex is now shipping ​ACCESS NX​, the latest in its IP audio codec line.

Introduced at NAB 2017, ACCESS NX is designed for a wide range of applications, including ENG, sports announcing, talk show hosting, and community outreach.

​New features include​ an added audio channel and a 5-inch capacitive touch screen.

ACCESS NX features CrossLock, Comrex’s custom reliability layer that enables both powerful error correction and network bonding.

“Rather than simply splitting data between two networks, CrossLock monitors each network in real time and dynamically adjusts network usage based on performance,” Comrex says. “Combine that with a suite of network enhancement tools, and CrossLock can turn unreliable wireless service into a rock solid broadcast-ready link.

ACCESS NX features include:
● Two USB jacks for 3G/4G and Wi-Fi connectivity, Ethernet port, and POTS modem compatibility (POTS modem sold separately)
● Two stereo headphone outputs (¼” jacks) with individual controls
● Digital mixing and headphone busses
● Digital peak limiting
● Field-changeable internal lithium battery with built-in charger (5 hours of power)
● Serial data & four contact closures
● Optional mixer (adds 4 channels)

ACCESS NX is compatible with ​ACCESS Rackmount​ and ​BRIC-Link II​.

The MSRP is set at $4,000 for an ACCESS NX remote unit, and $1,000 for an optional 4-channel ACCESS NX mixer.
