Universal Amplifier AC-CX100-RAMP

This multi-purpose device serves several functions in today’s classroom, conference room and boardroom and includes an IP controllable 2 channel 25W Amplifier with microphone, line, HDMI and HDBaseT inputs, Full 18Gbps throughout (100M HDBaseT 10.2 Gbps). Outputs are scalable from 2K to 4K and 4K to 2K and there are additional audio outputs for recorders, additional amplifiers, audio matrices or other devices. Full EDID management makes setup a breeze and the on-screen display (OSD) provides critical information for the system operator and installer. The CX100-RAMP supports both ARC and eARC so all high bitrate audio codecs are supported. A built-in circuit for eARC automatically detects delay information from the display and corrects time delay up to 170 msec. All of these functions support collaboration for large and small groups!

Product Applications

Conference Rooms

​In this application, the presenter can connect their laptop to a ConferX wall plate. This will distribute the audio and video from the laptop into the Universal Amplifier and on to the display or projector. The audio is routed to the in-wall speakers in the room, plus you can utilize the additional audio inputs for an intercom or music system. The microphone input is used to mic the presenter if necessary. With auto-ducking technology, when the microphone input picks up sound it will automatically override other audio inputs so you can hear the presenter loud and clear.

18Gbps Home Theatres

​With the Universal Amplifier, you can put together a full 18Gbps home theater system with amplified audio, 4K audio, and even ARC & eARC (audio return channel) amplified to the connected speakers. This means you can switch between any of the connected sources and the native smart TV apps, and still get sound routed and amplified through the AC-CX100-RAMP and into your speakers.

Dual Zone Switcher Amplifier

​The Universal Amplifier, when paired with an AVPro Edge splitter and HDBaseT transmitter, gives you a professional installation perfect for a condo or apartment. The satellite or cable box can be tucked away in a closet; then, the video can be routed through a 4K splitter into a local bedroom/patio/kitchen display. Output two on the splitter will go into an HDBaseT transmitter, sending the signal up to 100 meters via category cable. Send this signal into the main TV room, where you can have speakers being amplified from the AC-CX100-RAMP. Its ARC and eARC functionality allows you to amplify audio from the satellite/cable box or the native streaming apps in the display.

MultiZone Applications

​Because the Universal Amplifier has an HDBaseT input, you can pair it alongside AVPro Edge’s HDBaseT Matrix Switchers. This allows you to deliver amplified audio in each zone and provides the ability to plug-in an audio or video source locally using the in-ceiling/wall speakers you professionally installed. In the diagram below, you can see how each zone is connected to each source at the bottom, but they also have their own local source that can get amplified audio using ARC or eARC. This allows end-users to plug-in video devices like gaming consoles or computers, or even audio-only sources like a smartphone for Spotify.
