The AC-MAX-24 multi-room two-channel audio matrix is designed to deliver easily configurable high-fidelity audio routing via third-party amplification, across any residential or commercial space.
Sioux Falls, SD – Multi-room video matrixing specialist AVPro Edge announces release of the separately specialized AC-MAX-24, an audio-only, rack-mountable, full-chassis two-channel audio matrix switcher. Designed to be partnered with any multi-channel power amplifier and featuring a comprehensive API fronted by an AVPro Edge engineered GUI for complete signal routing customization, the IP-controllable AC-MAX-24 may be perfectly integrated into most third-party automation systems such as Crestron, Control4, Elan, Savant or URC.
Twenty analog input pairs join dual digital inputs (Coaxial or Toslink), with two AEX inputs which function to harvest analog or uncompressed digital signals from de-centralized devices at distances as great as 130M (over Shielded Twisted Pair). Not included but required to facilitate AEX use are AC-AEX-T transmitting units, available individually. All inputs may be routed to any output or output grouping (digital signals, however, are not downmixed). Audio configuration options include independent channel volume, balance, tone adjustment and equalization. Four 12V output triggers enable amp turn-on or event control.
The AC-MAX-24 intrigues with small details and is perfect for high-resolution audio distribution in any residential or commercial environment. Highlight your next system design with the fresh thinking and distinguished audio performance of the AVPro Edge AC-MAX-24.

AVPro Edge’s Evolution II AC-MXNET-1G-EV2 encoder and AC-MXNET-1G-DV2 decoder arrive amidst a flurry of qualitative improvements targeting video performance.
Selecting a newly designed application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) featuring native support for 4K/60fps 4:4:4 signals (RGB and YCbCr @10- and 12-bit), AVPro Edge engineers made customized refinements to the software-based encoding/decoding video engines, resulting in greatly enhanced image fidelity for motion-related and static-based content.
AVPro Edge algorithm advancements enable the Evolution II duo to collaborate on eliminating intraframe smear, which materializes as a tendency for detail to blur when lossy compression advances into higher compensatory ratios. With motion-related content, edge transitions remain tight and free from “bloating”, with overall image definition crisp, void of the appearance of focus hunt, the sensation of having large background areas begin to lose clarity as motion heightens, then snap back into focus as motion quells, similar to an auto-focus lens unable to lock onto a subject and continuing to slightly alter the size of objects as it attempts to settle in.
The residential integration market will not only appreciate a more cinematic feel to movies but especially will embrace the precision look to live sports telecasts.
AVPro engineers also placed an intense degree of emphasis on ensuring static content would equally benefit from the new ASIC and are immensely pleased with their results, as will be the commercial integration market.
Discrete cosine transform (DCT) artifacts like ringing, which looks like echoed outlines to text, smudging, similar in appearance to the out of focus look described above and macroblocking, where subtle details end up pixelating and a solid color or a white background behind text appears to have areas where block-like arrays accentuate themselves within the background, were the subject of intense engineering resources to dramatically reduce if not completely usher their ouster. Occurrences of posterization, an anomaly where finely detailed color transitions lose their gradient boundaries and “melt” together (also referred to as banding), have been substantially diminished to the point of elimination when content is correctly delivered.
The painstaking ministrations optimizing the IC to precisely render data has paid off handsomely, benefiting educational, medical, governmental and industrial applications that command meticulous image fidelity. Information-disseminating public displays, particularly airport arrival and departure screens, sports book and off-track betting facilities, plus restaurant/retail environments where clouded information is unacceptable, overwhelmingly will welcome the elevation of clarity plus detail retention found in these next-level AVPro Edge products. Commercial integrators will soon find the new MXNet Evolution II encoder and decoder to be assets their product portfolios cannot afford to be without.
MXNet products are fully backed by the AVPro Edge 10-year, no hassle warranty, while our state-of-the-art Tech Support team guarantees you are never on site alone.
