ProTraXX plays eight independent stereo, or 16 independent mono, tracks from a single, economical rack mount unit.  Each track can be individually triggered using serial, Ethernet or its own discrete input – contact closure orvoltage – allowing direct connection to proximity sensors or switches. All tracks can also be controlled froma single RS-232 or Ethernet port. These features are in demand for audio effects applications for dark rides, interactive museum exhibits and visitors centers.

One of the enhanced capabilities of ProTraXX is remote updating via Ethernet, which makes it ideal for retail applications requiring frequent modifications, such as audible signage.  In addition, the microphone/aux audio input permits play back of BGM with live or pre-recorded paging in each zone.

ProTraXX offers up to 100 hours of play back, and it can store many hours of audio clips on Compact Flash cards for years of reliable service.  The system sports a real time clock scheduler with battery back up for BGM playlists.

Easy to use and with no moving parts ProTraXX provesitself to be a durable platform for work horse applications as varied as audible signage, retail audio, museum exhibits, BGM and real time announcements.
