Since ACCESS was introduced over a decade ago, it has become the world’s leading IP audio codec. And in that time, IP transmission technology has developed significantly. We’ve taken our world-class platform, along with the last decade of technical growth, and built a brand new platform for the future – ACCESS NX. ACCESS NX is the ultimate tool to take advantage of these advances. Designed from the ground up as a platform for CrossLock, our sophisticated custom reliability layer, ACCESS NX is the next step in innovative portable broadcasting.
IP infrastructure is growing rapidly, and networks are available virtually everywhere. ACCESS NX offers several ways to get connected. ACCESS NX comes with a Wi-Fi modem, along with an integrated Ethernet port for connecting to wired DSL or broadband cable. ACCESS NX can also accommodate connections to 3G/4G cellular data networks using Comrex supported USB devices. For those who need to use public Wi-Fi, ACCESS NX can log in to IP networks through the integrated web browser. This allows users to type credentials into login screens and agree to usage terms, which expands networking options. Still need to use POTS, ACCESS NX is compatible with a USB POTS/PSTN modem for use on legacy analog phone lines.
ACCESS NX has been designed from the ground up to support CrossLock technology. The most advanced network management tool on the market today, CrossLock gives users the ability to use multiple IP networks together simultaneously. When a new network is introduced, Crosslock will immediately evaluate how much bandwidth is available, while factoring in latency and jitter information, and combine the two connections to take advantage of all available bandwidth. More than just combining networks, CrossLock can also monitor and dynamically adjust how much of your stream is being placed on each network, in real time. When necessary, CrossLock can apply appropriate error correction, recovery, or concealment techniques. And when a network becomes unusable, CrossLock can isolate it, without any user intervention.
Equipped with a 5-inch capacitive touch screen, it’s simple to operate ACCESS NX in the field. Plus, with an improved user interface, ACCESS NX is designed to be even more user friendly than its predecessor.
