New server allows you to create IP audio systems with up to 100 different zones

With the Audio Manager C7050 from THE Swedish company Axis Communications, each of the 100 zones can have hundreds of boxes, which opens new opportunities for digital audio in large installations.

Axis Communications developed a "brain" to manage network audio infrastructure in retail chains, supermarkets, schools, universities, hospitals and other commercial environments.


The new technology is the AXIS Audio Manager C7050 server, which creates a single audio management point for larger and more advanced systems.

The AXIS C7050 server allows you to manage and control all network audio devices from a single interface, including network speakers, audio bridges, microphones and Axis megaphones.

Users can control their entire network audio system using a computer, program the transmission of pre-recorded tracks, control the volume of audio and monitor the operation of the device: The system offers a status update for each connected device 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to instantly identify faults.

Easy to install and operate, AXIS Audio Manager allows a retail chain with multiple branches, for example, to define different zones for each geographic location and its specific areas.

With zones management, users can transmit music announcements and pre-recorded and / or live public announcements to some or all areas, according to their needs.

This allows users to program a great combination of ads, commercials and background music during the day, week, month and/or year, as well as making live announcements in response to specific situations according to each scenario.

The content can be managed centrally, from a single point or from different individual points of sale.

"The benefits of audio in improving security and creating a better experience for the customer now became a reality for a number of businesses", explains Paulo Santos, Axis' solutions manager. "The AXIS Audio Manager offers uninterrupted control for our entire audio portfolio, becoming the 'brain' of the network audio infrastructure".
