The Axia IP-Audio Driver lets you send and record single or multiple channels of stereo PC audio directly to and from Axia networks via Ethernet — no sound cards needed. Up to 24 channels of stereo audio can be sent simultaneously over a single CAT-5 Ethernet connection.
Sends audio sources to the Livewire® network from PC/Windows audio applications such as multichannel delivery systems and other audio players.
Receives audio from the Livewire network to destinations on the PC/Windows system, such as audio recording applications.
GPIO function conveys “button-press” data from the Livewire network to destination applications; i.e., a console fader start button can command a PC/Windows-based audio player to start playback.
The Axia IP-Audio Driver single-stream version emulates a standard sound card, with one stereo audio output device and one stereo audio input device. This version is suitable for typical two-channel (stereo) playback or recording applications.
Axia IP-Audio Multichannel OEM versions emulate 4, 8 or 24 stereo sound cards (depending upon installed version), with one stereo audio output device and one stereo audio input device per “sound card”. These versions are intended for more complex professional applications.
Supports 5.1 Surround audio streams as well as stereo, configurable on a per-stream basis.
Windows version includes WDM and ASIO versions for maximum system flexibility.
