The Telos Alliance Debuts Breakthrough iQx AoIP Console at the Paris Salon de la Radio Conference

Uniquely Combines a Control Surface and Mix Engine in a Single Cost-Effective Unit

Cleveland, OH (January 24, 2019) – The Telos Alliance is publicly debuting the new Axia iQx AoIP Broadcast Console at the Salon de la Radio Conference in Paris, France, at stand A12, where the company will be exhibiting with Livewire® partner ip-studio. This breakthrough console uniquely combines a control surface and mix engine into a single compact, cost-efficient unit, providing fast and easy access to every AES67-compliant networked source and device.

“Our new Axia iQx AoIP Consoles provide broadcasters with a new level of versatility and cost-efficiency, while maintaining uncompromised audio quality,” said Marty Sacks, VP of Sales, Support, & Marketing, Telos Alliance. “Axia iQx suddenly opens up the world of AoIP and Axia capabilities to more people by utilizing existing network resources and eliminating the cost of an outboard mix engine. This really is a game changer.”

By combining the mix engine and surface into a single desktop unit configuration, Axia iQx AoIP Consoles dramatically reduce equipment and installation costs and streamline studio design. The AES67-compliant consoles fully support emerging standards including SMPTE 2110-30 and can access any audio AoIP source, anywhere on the network, from anywhere in the world. By piggybacking off existing network resources, including Axia iQ Consoles, Axia QOR engines, as well as microphones, headphones, or any other audio source using Telos Alliance xNodes, broadcasters can easily add new studios with great savings. And since Axia iQx AoIP Consoles can be controlled from the remote site, they eliminate the need for an in-studio operator. This makes them ideal for a wide range of applications including permanent and temporary studios, remote operations, and more.
