AEQ will show the Arena control surface, suitable for radio broadcasting applications such as on-air control. It interfaces with the BC2000D System and can operate as an audio console or as a digital audio router.
The company says the most important feature is its routing capability, which allows all the system outputs to be summed and re-routable to other outputs. It enables as many N-1 busses or clean feeds to be created as there are outputs.
The Arena control surface consists of two units: the Arena DM with five faders, plus the control and monitoring section for the studio, and the Arena D10 with 10 faders. Seven Arena D10s can link via Ethernet to the Arena DM. The system includes features such as intercom, automatic monitor cut-off, cough muting, fader start, control signaling and control signals for the automation of external equipment.
Additionally, the Arena adapts to configurations including control room, control room/studio, control associated with several studios, mixed configurations and integration into large facilities.
