Jünger Audio AIXpressor : software-defined hardware

Posted on: Tuesday 13th of March 2018

junger_aixAIXpressor is a 19” 1RU device based on x86 processors, equipped with a comprehensive range of built-in interfaces – including redundant audio-over-IP with full compatibility for AES67 and SMPTE ST2110, USB host and client interfaces – as well as MADI, AES/EBU and analogue I/Os. The idea is that AIXpressor will act as a base for software-defined products, created using Jünger’s new Flexible Audio Infrastructure “flexAI.”

This new concept gives broadcasters the flexibility to choose exactly the right audio processing products for their facilities and projects. As the name implies, software products created using flexAI will be licensed flexibly, meaning users can incorporate additional functionality, increase their channel count or even shift licenses between devices. The unit also has four slots for optional interfaces, all of which are compatible with Jünger Audio’s existing D*AP series of audio processors. These include 3G/HD/SD SDI, MADI, Audinate Dante and many more.

In conjunction with the new AIXpressor hardware, Jünger Audio has also developed a new optical connection called tieLight that can transmit up to 1152 audio channels in each direction. TieLight, which has very low delay and compensated latency, is utilised for cascading multiple devices and for setting up larger systems that require several processors. It is an inherent part of the AIXpressor and will be available as a PCIexpress interface card to be used in Jünger Audio’s upcoming line of servers.
