Question:
MXA910 External LED Control for Mute Status using Command Strings
Answer:

The MXA910 receives logic commands over the network. Many parameters controlled through the web application can be controlled through a third party control system, using the appropriate command string. A complete list of command strings is available in the device help or the User Guide.

When using the MXA910 with a DSP, the microphone’s LED status can be changed independent of the audio. Dante / AES67 audio will still flow to your DSP when using the following command strings.

Note: This is useful when audio must always flow to the DSP, especially when AEC or other signal dependent processing is applied.

First, connect to the MXA910 from your third party control system (or telnet) using the MXA910’s control IP address and port 2202. Next, use the SET DEV_LED_IN_STATE command to toggle between the UNMUTE and MUTE colors defined in the Light Bar section of the microphone.

< SET DEV_LED_IN_STATE OFF > to toggle LED to mute color.
< SET DEV_LED_IN_STATE ON > to toggle LED to unmute color.

All brackets, spaces, and underscores must be used when sending command strings. Otherwise a < REP ERR > will be reported back from the device.
