RTI today announced the availability of the all-new AD-16x 16×16 audio matrix switcher as part of its line-up of audio distribution solutions.
The AD-16x is ideal for large, multi-zone audio installations, providing routing for 16 audio sources across 16 zones, while RTI Cool Power amplifiers (CP-450/CP-1650) drive crystal-clear audio to every speaker. It features eight remote source inputs, which allow devices located in other rooms to be used as global sources, and when the system grows past 16 zones, up to four AD-16x units can be cascaded for up to 64 output zones. It also delivers complete audio management, including parametric equalising, zone grouping, and balance control that are all configurable via a web interface.
“From the latest digital streamers to older iPod docks, the AD-16x can accommodate all of today’s audio sources, as well as tomorrow’s. This, combined with 16 output zones and the power of the RTI ecosystem, allows every room to be filled with personalised entertainment,” said RTI vice president of global sales Mike Everett.
The AD-16x features engineering that enables it to become an extension of the RTI ecosystem, with the AD64 two-way driver running on an RTI XP processor at the heart of this integration.
The driver delivers flexibility and programming efficiency, and features custom project labelling to allow integrators to name all zones and sources and eliminate tedious programming by ID number. It also allows dynamic audio source management, which tracks active sources, allowing users to determine if a source is already in use and select a different one to avoid an inadvertent music change.
RTI is available through Avation.
