The Auratus is a production and on-air console for TV and radio applications made by Stagetec.
It is a 96 kHz-capable stereo and surround mixing console with up to 32 audio channels; it uses a Nexus Base Device offering a variety of audio formats and extensive signal routing. Nexus, the supplier says, provides hot-swap technology, internal error monitoring and dependable operation; it is the basis for building optical audio networks in broadcast, theater and film facilities.
The surface consists of 100 mm faders, dual encoders, dynamic multicolored arc indicators and OLED displays showing either an analog style or numerical representation of parameter values. High-resolution metering is displayed on TFT screens with extended lateral viewing angles.
The manufacturer says superior audio quality is achieved through 40-bit floating point arithmetic DSP and the high-fidelity audio interface components. The surface includes headphone, talkback microphone and monitor speaker I/O with the audio and data all carried over a single CAT-7 cable connecting the console and its Nexus processing board.
