Appearances can be deceiving, because this product looks like a traditional console, but its actually a surface and mix engine rolled into one. Normally surfaces need to be connected to a separate mix engine, the so-called 'brains' of the system. Axia iQx combines the mix engine and surface into one unit. That's one less component and connection you need to worry about when building your studio, allowing you to get up and running quickly and easily. Besides that, iQx is AES67- and SMPTE 2110-10 compliant and stands fully capable of supporting emerging standards!iQx is great for nontraditional studio setups too, for example if you need a temporary studio for a special event! Control is not just a local thing either; an iQx can be controlled from the remote site, so no in-studio operator is required. New to AoIP? In addition to its own unique advantages, iQx is an AoIP console at its heart, giving you all the benefits that come with an AoIP network. More flexibility, easier and faster installs, cost efficiency and a decentralized system without a single point of failure.Triple Audio offers the iQx at a surprsingly affordable price! Needless to say, you will get the all the craftsmanship, build quality, and innovation that Axia is known for.
