The Axia® iQ console system can be used to build custom consoles of sizes from 8 to 24 faders. A basic system consists of one iQ 8-Fader Main Frame and one QOR.32 integrated console engine, a DSP- based mixing engine which also incorporates analog and digital audio I/O, GPIO and a custom, zero- configuration Ethernet switch. Faders and control capabilities can be expanded by adding one or more iQ Expansion Frames (up to a maximum of 3 frames per console installation). iQ console frames may be placed on top of desk surface, or mounted drop-in style. Multiple frames may be physically joined if desired.
iQ operates as a standalone console, but can also connect to Axia networks. The iQ mixing surface plugs into the QOR.32 engine using a single cable. Setup couldn’t be simpler: connect the iQ control surface to the QOR.32, add audio inputs using CAT-5, perform some fast Web-based configuration, and your iQ system is ready to broadcast. It really is that simple!
iQ features 3 dedicated stereo Program buses, plus a stereo Utility bus that can be used for phone calls, off-air recording, or as a fourth Program bus. Automatic mix-minus is provided on each fader, plus talkback functions, one-button off-air Record Mode, Show Profile functions for instant recall of up to 4 pre-defined console “snapshots”, high-resolution OLED program meters switchable between VU and PPM metering styles, OLED option and source name displays on each fader strip, Studio and Control Room monitor controls. Add redundant power to your iQ system with the Axia Console Power Supply. This single-cable connection to the QOR.32 console engine provides backup power with automatic switching.
Put machine control and GPIO-triggered routing commands at your operators’ fingertips with this iQ expansion frame. In addition to the six additional faders, 10 User Keys can be software-mapped to control audio delivery systems, send contact closures or route GPIO commands to studio devices.
