The AC-AXION-8 is a high bandwidth audio/video matrix switcher. What really makes this product special is the ability to downmix bitstream audio beyond 7.1 channel into a 2 channel audio signal via all 8 inputs, that includes Dolby Atmos and DTS-X.
In a multizoned distribution system every zone is not set to handle full Dolby Atmos sound. Most zones are going to need 2 channel audio. This AC-AXION-8 Matrix Switcher allows you to deliver 24+ channels to your Dolby Atmos home theater, at the same time it delivers 2 channel to the rest of the zones. We do this by allowing the downmixing to only affecting the de-embedded audio outputs, the HDBaseT and HDMI ports leave the audio unimpeded, allowing you to distribute full Dolby Atmos and DTS HD through them.
