Comrex ACCESS NX Portable
A sleek portable IP audio codec designed with the user in mind
ACCESS NX is an IP audio codec that’s made to go anywhere. Designed from the ground up as a platform for CrossLock, our sophisticated custom reliability layer, we’ve optimized ACCESS NX to send and receive high-quality audio over even the most marginal networks.
Whether you want to go live from the sidelines, do your talk show from the road, or find a codec that’s versatile enough to handle anything, ACCESS NX is designed with you in mind.
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. Plus, you can connect to 4G/5G networks using USB cellular or Comrex Connect modems. ACCESS NX also features an integrated web browser, to make it easy to log into public IP Wi-Fi.
Mix and match your networks! ACCESS NX can support simultaneous connections to Wi-Fi, wired internet, or cellular modems, so you can make use of every bit of connectivity available to you.
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. No need for a stylus! Plus, colorful LED VU meters provide a clear visual indicator of clipping.
Switchboard for NAT Traversal
Switchboard is a feature that allows users to bypass common IP networking snags (like private LANs and firewalls) by routing data through a private server maintained by Comrex, making connections between your IP codecs even easier.
Reduce the strain on your IT department and worry less on remote day. Switchboard makes it easier to log on to unfamiliar Wi-Fi networks, like those you might encounter in hotels, schools, and wherever else you do a remote.
Switchboard is included in the purchase of any ACCESS codec.
HotSwap is an enhancement to our CrossLock VPN Technology. It allows you to designate one network as a “backup” that will only be engaged when the primary fails. The system will warn of this status with a contact closure, and automatically fallback to the primary once it’s restored.
Backup STLs, dedicated links, and other mission-critical codec connections with this free feature that now ships included with all new ACCESS and BRIC-Link purchases. Older IP audio codec models can take advantage of HotSwap by updating to firmware 4.3 or higher.
For the ACCESS line, any supported network or modem can be a backup.
