The AC-CX100-RAMP is a unique tool that allows an integrator to deliver a professional audio solution in a low cost, easy to manage solution. This Universal Amplifier from ConferX is an HDBaseT receiver and Audio Amplifier in one. It’s able to run as a single-room solution or work alongside a multi-zone setup.
We are going to cover just a few of the ways you can utilize ConferX’s Universal Amplifier below.
CONFERENCE ROOM SOLUTION:
In this application, the presenter can connect their laptop to a ConferX wall plate. This will distribute the audio and video from the laptop into the Universal Amplifier and on to the display or projector. The audio is routed to the in-wall speakers in the room, plus you can utilize the additional audio inputs for an intercom or music system. The microphone input is used to mic the presenter if necessary. With auto-ducking technology, when the microphone input picks up sound it will automatically override other audio inputs so you can hear the presenter loud and clear.
SIMPLE 18GBPS 4K HOME THEATER SET-UP:
With the Universal Amplifier, you can put together a full 18Gbps home theater system with amplified audio, 4K audio, and even ARC & eARC (audio return channel) amplified to the connected speakers. This means you can switch between any of the connected sources and the native smart TV apps, and still get sound routed and amplified through the AC-CX100-RAMP and into your speakers.
DUAL ZONE APARTMENT SWITCHER AND AMPLIFIER:
The Universal Amplifier, when paired with an AVPro Edge splitter and HDBaseT transmitter, gives you a professional installation perfect for a condo or apartment. The satellite or cable box can be tucked away in a closet; then, the video can be routed through a 4K splitter into a local bedroom/patio/kitchen display. Output two on the splitter will go into an HDBaseT transmitter, sending the signal up to 100 meters via category cable. Send this signal into the main TV room, where you can have speakers being amplified from the AC-CX100-RAMP. Its ARC and eARC functionality allows you to amplify audio from the satellite/cable box or the native streaming apps in the display.
MULTI-ZONED INSTALLATION WITH AMPLIFIED AUDIO IN EACH ZONE:
Because the Universal Amplifier has an HDBaseT input, you can pair it alongside AVPro Edge’s HDBaseT Matrix Switchers. This allows you to deliver amplified audio in each zone and provides the ability to plug-in an audio or video source locally using the in-ceiling/wall speakers you professionally installed.
In the diagram below, you can see how each zone is connected to each source at the bottom, but they also have their own local source that can get amplified audio using ARC or eARC. This allows end-users to plug-in video devices like gaming consoles or computers, or even audio-only sources like a smartphone for Spotify.
INTERCONNECTION - BUILT TO WORK WITH OTHER SYSTEMS:
The Universal Amplifier is entirely controllable through buttons on the front or a full web GUI system. This allows you too easily set it up to work perfectly for your next installation. More importantly, it has drivers to work alongside Control 4, Crestron, and other major control systems.
