AMX-1901
3G/HD/SD 8 Channel Analog Audio Embedder

The AMX-1901 is an advanced, high-quality 24-bit 48 kHz analog audio embedder designed to insert up to eight analog audio signals into a 3G/HD/SD video signal. The AMX-1901 can process the eight audio input channels with functions including level, channel shuffling and mixing. Options include Automatic Loudness Control and dynamic processing (limiter, compressor and expander).
