The VMX88 allows the routing of eight channels of Dante-networked inputs to any output channel
Based on the company’s latest-generation DSP designs, NST Audio’s VMX88 eight-in/eight-out matrix signal processor allows mixing of not only the eight analogue inputs – each one equipped with a compressor, high-pass filter, eight bands of parametric EQ and delay – but also routing of eight channels of Dante-networked inputs to any output channel. The eight analogue outputs also include NST’s two-stage PXL limiters.
The front panel interface is said to give clear visual indication of all inputs and outputs, as well as status of Dante and communications network activity. The VMX88 is compatible with the manufacturer’s VR1 PoE remote control panel, while control via third-party systems such as Crestron is available via NST’s Ethernet control protocol. Industry-standard Phoenix-type connectors are used throughout on the VMX88’s rear panel. In addition, the four GPI connections allow configurable actions such as fire alarm mutes and preset recalls. Up to 30 presets can be stored with recall options allowing selective recall combinations of input, matrix and output sections.
