According to Comrex, the new Access NX codec is the result of a decade of IP audio transmission advancements and is refined for the remote experience. It is designed for a wide range of applications – including ENG, sports announcing, talk show hosting, community outreach and more.

Access NX runs on CrossLock, Comrex’s custom reliability layer that enables both error correction and network bonding. Rather than simply splitting data between two networks, CrossLock monitors each network in real time and dynamically adjusts network usage based on performance.

When combined with a suite of network enhancement tools, CrossLock can turn an unreliable wireless service into a rock solid broadcast-ready link, claimed the company.

Notable features include two mic/line switchable XLR inputs; dedicated stereo line input; two stereo headphone outputs (quarter-inch jacks) with individual controls; digital mixing and headphone busses; field-changeable internal lithium battery with built-in charger for five hours of power; and serial data and four contact closures.
