Axia Audio is displaying its line of networked mixing consoles at IBC2013; five models in 16 sizes, with features to match the needs of virtually any studio.
For large, main studios at the busiest stations, there’s Element. With nine frame sizes hosting anywhere from four to 40 faders, four stereo mixing busses, automatic clean feeds for every fader, Omnia voice dynamics for every mic, and up to 99 Show Profiles console snapshots, Element helps operators command even complicated programs with ease, Axia says.
For medium-sized studios that demand the flexibility and power of a big console, there’s iQ, configurable from eight to 24 faders. Like Element, there’s four stereo mixing busses, automatic clean feeds, Omnia voice processing, automatic redundant backup power and its own matched, optional six-line Telos phone system.
For smaller studios Axia Radius consoles pack the features of iQ into an eight-fader frame. Like other Axia consoles, Radius can operate as a standalone console, or as part of a larger Axia studio network; its QOR Integrated Console Engine hosts mic, analog, and digital I/O with GPIO logic, plus a zero-configuration, built-for-broadcast Ethernet switch for easy networking.
Rounding out the Axia console family are DESQ, a small but powerful six-fader, two-bus stereo desktop mixer that’s suitable for personal studios or production facilities, and RAQ, a six-fader, two-bus stereo rackmount mixer designed for OB vans, TOC racks and other locations where space is at a premium.
