NEW BROADCAST-QUALITY BALANCED LINE DIGITAL AUDIO ADAPTERS
PROVIDE EXCEPTIONAL SOUND, EASY INTERFACE
SX-36 and SX-6 offer a lower price for balanced line I/O
in PC recording and playback
Gardena, California (April 7, 1997) -- With the introduction
today of the Antex Series 2/SX-36 and SX-6 digital audio adapters,
Antex Electronics establishes a new low price point for balanced
line flexibility in a high end, single-ISA digital audio solution.
Designed for broadcast, entertainment and multimedia applications,
the new Antex products feature dual-device operation, multiple
compression formats and balanced analog I/O for easy integration
into any audio or video production environment.
The Antex Series 2/SX-36 digital audio adapter provides multi-channel,
high fidelity, direct-to-disk, digital sound sampling and
reproduction with 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response and minimum
dynamic range of 85 dB. The SX-36 has balanced analog inputs
and outputs for seamless interfacing to professional applications
such as broadcast automation. Fully ISA-compatible, the 1/2
size add-in card also features multiple compression formats
including MPEG Layer I/II bit rate reduction technology for
compression rates of up to 16:1.
Of particular interest to broadcasters is the SX-36's dual
stereo record and play capability. Users can record on one
stereo channel while airing program material on the other.
All these features, plus a versatile on-board mixer with multiple
inputs and outputs make the SX-36 ideal for digital recording
and mastering; audio/visual multimedia presentations, kiosks
and broadcast automation.
To utilize all the SX-36's features and maximize its capabilities,
Antex Electronics offers a high level digital audio Application
Program Interface (API) for DOS. Languages supported include
C, Pascal, BASIC and Assembly. The drivers are available as
an Audio Developers Kit (ADK) in either a TSR or a linkable
version and are downward compatible with existing Antex drivers.
The SX-36 is available now at a list price of $995.00. An
Audio Developers Kit (DOS) is available for $750.00.
The Antex Series 2/SX-6 is a cost-effective companion board
to the SX-36. Designed to playback files recorded on the SX-36,
it features the same broadcast quality sound, balanced analog
outputs and multiple data compression decoding capabilities
as the SX-36.
Dual stereo MPEG playback at 32 kHz gives broadcast facilities
the ability to overlap spots or songs, and unique to the SX-6,
a feedthrough microphone input allows live voice to be mixed
with the output through the on-board mixer. There is no need
for external gear to accomplish this function.
This SX-6 also features a programmable EEPROM for OEM software
protection and is available with drivers for DOS, Windows
(3.x, 95 and NT) and OS/2. The SX-6 is available now for a
list price of $550.00. An Audio Developers Kit (DOS) is available
The Series 2/SX-36 and SX-6 are designed and manufactured
in the USA by Antex Electronics Corporation in Gardena, California.
The company offers over 25 models of superior quality digital
audio adapters that are used by thousands of audio, post-production,
multimedia and broadcast professionals worldwide.
