Axis expands its network audio offering
September 2017 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Axis adds to its growing offering for smart, network based audio solutions: a new network audio bridge and a new network microphone console.
The latest additions from Axis Communications widen the possible use of audio to enhance business operations and safety and security. The network audio bridge and the network microphone console adds value to a number of different use cases, such as background music and announcements in retail chains or paging solutions in public address systems in the education sector. It is possible to combine these with Axis network speakers in one system, with no central electronic equipment needed. Axis network audio systems are based on open standards, which means they are easy to integrate with other systems.
Axis also announces 2N® SIP Mic, a compatible network microphone console from 2N, a part of the Axis Group, for use in public address systems. This smart network microphone console offers 12 configurable buttons and allows for flexible paging in multiple zones, to make live announcements and play pre-recorded messages.
AXIS C8033 Network Audio Bridge and 2N® SIP Mic will be available through Axis’ distribution channels in September 2017 with the suggested retail price of USD 199 and 899 USD.
