Kramer unveils new audio matrix, powered by Xilica

Kramer Electronics unveils the industry first ever 20-port audio matrix with DSP and interchangeable inputs & outputs at ISE 2019. AFM‑20DSP provides configuration flexibility and eliminates I/O limitations with its 20 interchangeable analog audio ports, letting AV professionals get more functionality for less real estate.

Powered by Xilica, AFM-20DSP also packs 8 AEC channels, auto feedback suppression, Dante™ support, built-in Hi-Z and Lo-Z 120W power amplification, and complete DSP functionality. Not overlooking video requirements, AFM-20DSP provides HDMI™ embedding and de-embedding at 4K60 4:2:0. AFM‑20DSP even boasts both fixed and open architecture, enabling AV professionals to use predefined sound configurations or configure a system from scratch.  

“When designing the AFM-20DSP, my top priority was to ensure that it would be easy to install and use”, said Yuval Kramer, Director of Audio at Kramer. “We decided to include various critical and unique capabilities into this one box to not only remove technical constraints but also to rule out interoperability issues. Our audio line continues to revolutionize the market and I’m certain that AFM-20DSP will become an industry benchmark in the coming years”, added Kramer.
