AudioControl has introduced the BLX-1K bi-directional signal extender that sends and receives a fully balanced, analog audio signal up to 1,000 feet over standard Ethernet cable.
According to AudioControl, professional AV installers often encounter projects that require long cable runs, and the BLX-1K has been engineered as a premium solution to efficiently address these challenges.
“AV professionals look to AudioControl for innovative solutions that enhance system performance while improving overall efficiency on the jobsite,” says Chris Kane, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at AudioControl. “The BLX-1K delivers superb audio quality over long runs, overcoming a critical challenge for installers while retaining the exceptional clarity and detail customers demand.”
Designed to be used in pairs at both ends of the signal path, each BLX-1K contains a two-channel receive stage as well as a two-channel transmit stage, enabling content to travel in both directions across a span of Ethernet cable. The BLX-1K comes equipped with an external power supply for easy connection and ultra-quiet performance.
Delivering an output of nearly 8-Volts RMS, the BLX-1K rejects noise, providing clear audio signal over long Ethernet runs.
The AudioControl BLX-1K has a suggested selling price of US$180 and is now shipping to dealers.
