Matrix Switch Corporation's advanced modular, distributed Multiplexed Audio System (AMS) offers a powerful, low-latency, dedicated audio sample-synchronous platform for analog and digital audio distribution and routing. Visit our Multiplexed Audio Products page for a more detailed overview of this product family.

The MSC-AMSCTL can be used as a master controller or as a redundant backup controller. At least one controller is required in a Multiplexed Audio System. The powerful embedded Linux control system provides several interface options, including a built in web page interface and various control protocols, including our own easy to use Mascot protocol, over TCP/IP, RS-232, and RS-485 serial. Our remote LCD panels can also be used for remote routing control.

This controller also includes 8 AES input and 8 AES output connections for up to 16 input and 16 output digital audio channels. Additional integrated audio options will also be made available through software updates. Built-in monitoring is supported using the front panel 1/4" headphone jack with volume control.
