        Audio needs in commercial settings can be overwhelming: From presenting in large conference rooms to streaming music in a common area (such as a hotel lobby, for example), the connectivity needed for each application can vary wildly. Whatever the source, Crestron has the solution — four flexible devices that can get audio from a wide range of sources to your DM NAX® audio-over-IP network.

        Our new comprehensive lineup of AoIP audio accessories, the Crestron DM NAX Edge Devices, can provide the solution you need in any enterprise, educational, hospitality, and retail installation.

        Introducing the Crestron DM NAX Audio Edge Devices

        Designed with simplicity and customers' needs in mind, these cutting-edge products offer a seamless and interoperable solution for any audio-over-IP solution. Compatible across DM NVX® AV-over-IP, DM NAX Audio-over-IP, AES67, and Dante® audio networking platforms, we’ve designed these devices for profoundly simple and hassle-free installations. They’re all powered via PoE, so local AC isn’t needed. Available in two flexible form factors — wall plate and surface mount — the Crestron DM NAX Audio Edge Devices are a perfect fit for any AV environment.

        Four Devices, a World of Applications: At a Glance

        The DM NAX Wall Plate with Bluetooth® Communication and Unbalanced Analog Audio Input and Output: The DM-NAX-BTIO-1G — This device is perfect for commercial environments that need to give guests easy access to personal audio playback. Think of a dance class where the instructor pairs their device for playing their audio over the room system, along with their microphone signal, for example. It’s also a terrific presentation solution for conference rooms where meeting attendees need the ability to share audio over the system.

        The DM NAX Wall Plate with XLR Input and Balanced Analog Audio Output: The DM-NAX-2XLRI-1G — Here’s a great way to connect professional mic or line-level signals on XLR cables to a DM NAX® technology network. XLR connectivity means condenser or phantom-powered mics, mixing boards, and other audio sources have a line right into an AoIP network, making it a perfect option for conference rooms, meeting halls, and classrooms.

        The DM NAX Converter with Balanced Analog Audio Input and Output: DM-NAX-AUD-IO — Simply put, this solution is fundamentally an analog to DM NAX and DM NAX to analog bridge, making it possible to send an audio stream to a traditional analog amplifier. Instead of upgrading expensive amplifiers to a network-connected version, they can simply add this small box to their network solution. Additionally, if a client has legacy audio equipment (cassette decks, CD players, turntables, and so on), this device is the perfect way to get that audio into a truly modern and flexible ecosystem.

        The DM NAX Converter with USB and Unbalanced Analog Audio Input and Output: DM-NAX-AUD-USB — Need to bring PC or mobile device audio onto a DM NAX® technology network? The solution is right in the name: here’s an edge device that offers all the convenience and flexibility of USB connectivity. It’s an excellent option for conference rooms, training facilities, lecture halls, classrooms, and many other settings.

        The Details on Each Device

        DM-NAX-BTIO-1G

        The DM NAX Wall Plate with Bluetooth® communication and Unbalanced Analog Audio Input and Output

The device has been described as something of a “wildcard” — simply put, it supports any audio source to bridge to DM NAX technology. As you’re likely aware, Android™ OS users don’t have the benefit of solutions such as AirPlay® software, so Bluetooth connectivity is a fantastic option to source audio to this wall plate.

        The DM-NAX-BTIO-1G’s flexible form factor can be either put in a wall plate or surface mounted and hidden away — just a single network connection allows you to control and manage the device.
