The xNode lightweight, half-rack, high-performance IP-Audio interface from Telos Alliance is loaded with advanced features and capabilities. One-button configuration takes a new xNode from out-of-the-box to on-the-air in under one minute. They’re fanless, which means they’re noiseless too. Versatile mounting options let you deploy two xNodes in just 1RU of rack space, or on ceilings, walls, and under counters with an available wall-mount kit. xNodes have studio-grade audio performance specs. Redundant power options (using AC mains and Power-over-Ethernet) and dual-redundant network interfaces are included, both with automatic switching. And xNodes are fully AES67-compliant, so they work with all AES67 audio gear—now, and in the future. In fact, they are the first and only AoIP I/O devices that are Livewire+™, RAVENNA, and AES67 compliant. Every xNode not only supports RAVENNA audio stream interoperability, but also enables advertising/discovery of those streams natively, above and beyond AES67.
xNodes are available in Analog, AES/EBU, Microphone-level, Mixed-Signal, and GPIO versions to handle virtually any signal encountered in today’s broadcast studio.
Compact 9.5” x 11” second-generation AoIP interface. AES67-
compliant, noiseless and fan-free; can be conveniently placed adjacent
to your audio devices, rack-mounted, or wall-mounted (using one of
the accessory kits listed below). 16-channel xNode provides 8 mono or
4 stereo balanced line-level inputs and 8 mono or 4 stereo balanced
line-level outputs, accessible via easy-to-install RJ-45 connectors or
high-density DB-25 ports. Inputs are switchable to accommodate
consumer level -10dBv or professional level +4dBu. The short-circuit
protected outputs are capable of delivering up to +24 dBu before
clipping. Superior performance specs include switchable 48 kHz / 96
kHz sampling rate, 108dB of dynamic range, <0.005% THD. With 2.0
software, the xNode introduces a matrix mixer, which allows for
mixing, stream conversion, and a multitude of unique solutions. Dual
Ethernet ports allow connection to fully-redundant networks.
Redundant power plan auto-switches from internal supply to PoE
backup power when needed. Can also draw primary power directly
over Ethernet from switches compatible with the IEEE 802.1af PoE
standard (such as Telos Alliance xSwitch, p/n 2001-00357); perfect for
single-cable deployment in tight locations. Requires one unused
100Base-T Ethernet port for connection to an Axia network. Autosensing
power supply, 90VAC to 240VAC, 50 Hz to 60 Hz. 14 Watts.
Occupies 1RU when rack-mounted. Now with a fully configurable
mixing matrix, some user interface improvements, and AES67
compatibility enhancements. Rack-mounting kit included with each
