Zigen ZIG-AX-88 overview

  • 1Description

The black AX-88 8 x 8 Audio Matrix Switcher from Zigen is designed for applications that require routing of high-quality audio signals along with lip-sync and controls for audio output volume, treble, bass, and muting. It supports balanced or unbalanced mono or stereo audio signals, and ensures simultaneous distribution of any input source signal to one or more receivers or amplifiers in one-to-one or one-to-many combinations.

This audio matrix switcher features line level subwoofer outputs for each zone, offering the ability to control sub levels independently. In addition, it allows saving 8 frequently used I/O configurations as presets. The switcher can be operated via the front panel or remotely using the included remote control or RS-232, RS-485, IR, and Ethernet controls.

One of the key features of the AX-88 Audio Matrix Switcher is the ability to integrate with fire alarm and life safety systems. When the fire alarm is triggered, it mutes all the channels by switching them to standby mode until the system is reset. This feature is useful for hotels and banquet halls.
