AXIA INTRODUCES iQ
Axia will introduce a cheaper networked radio console on the upcoming NAB show, aimed at the smaller control rooms. Based on the established Livewire audio-over-IP technology, iQ features the same flexibility, configurability, ease of use and reduced cabling installation. Basic control surface comes with 8 faders and a silent, convection cooled iQ core with 4 mic inputs, 16 analog inputs, 2 AES/EBU inputs, 8 analog outputs, 2 AES/EBU outputs, 8 GPIO machine-control ports, integrated switch with 6 Livewire ports and 2 Gigabit ports to connect multiple system together. iQ can be easily expanded with standard Axia nodes for additional I/O and the control surface can be expanded with up to 24 faders. As with any Axia system, you do not need a sound card in your automation PC, just an Axia Audio driver to play digital audio directly into the Livewire network.
