The RC-W100’s display provides information about the selected audio source and the current volume setting
The RC-W100 is a wall-mountable, programmable remote control for the TASCAM MX-8A matrix mixer or other compatible products. Four switch buttons and one encoder with push-button function allow users to select between four or eight audio sources, adjust volume levels and mute sound in a permanently installed audio system. The illuminated display provides information about the selected audio source and the current volume setting. Up to eight controllers can be used with one mixer by daisy-chaining the units via an RS-485 connection with a cable length of up to 200m. Using TASCAM MX Connect, mistakes can be avoided by assigning only necessary functions to the encoder and switches.
MX Connect is a software application designed for SIs and systems managers which allows configuration of the MX-8A. For spaces where switching routes or changing audio levels is a regular occurrence, the software allows for configuration changes as well as status monitoring of input and output signals via a wired connection with a LAN cable or the MX-8A and MX Connect can share the same network for a wireless connection.
Staying with software, EZ Connect is an application for computers and mobile devices which allows users to control TASCAM’s Dante Compact Processor Series models (MM-2D, MM-4D/IN, ML-4D/OUT and AE-4D) and the MX-8A matrix mixer. Users can control the volume and input source of an area while being actually in that environment. It is also possible to collectively manage multiple areas at the same time by operating multiple EZ Connect instances on one computer. Faders and buttons are allocated on the interface, while control functions can be customised via DCP Connect or MX Connect control software.
MX Connect and EZ Connect are available for Windows and macOS computers as well as iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded from the TASCAM website.
