Product Description

USB Audio DSP by Phoenix Audio

The Octopus is an Audio Conferencing Mixer that gives you crystal clear audio. Using the Octopus allows you the freedom to mount microphones and speakers anywhere in the room (ceiling, walls, and table tops) for professional sound and a sleek look. The Octopus has a high powered DSP and technology that automatically monitors and mixes the audio. Although this may sound complicated we designed it for simple set-up & use, giving you a “set it and forget it” solution.

Each Octopus has four microphone inputs (each input can also be designated as a unique auxiliary or sound reinforcement channel), however, the Octopus provides unlimited daisy chain capability, and allows for multiple connectivity options. It comes standard with USB and RCA connectors for VoIP and Video Codec connectivity, with the option of adding a PSTN (analog telephone) interface or a digital telephone interface. The Phoenix Octopus can be ordered with an optional 40 watt, 4-output amplifier for powering speakers.

The Octopus MT454 is an ideal USB solution for:

  • Small to very large conference rooms
  • Classrooms and training rooms
  • Courtrooms and depositions

The Octopus is compatible with PC (Windows and Linux) and Macintosh (MAC OS).


  • Echo Cancellation
  • Noise Suppression
  • Full Duplex Communication
  • De-reverb Filtering
  • Automatic Gain Control

(The Octopus will assess the signals picked up by all the microphones, and decide, instantaneously, which one(s) will take part in the mixing and with what level of emphasis)

  • Bridging

(Bridging allows for 3-way communication between multiple connection sources, such as telephone, VoIP and Video Codec)
