Axia Shows Widest Range of IP Consoles at IBC 2013

From “network central” to “mobile mixer”, there’s an Axia board for every studio

22 August 2013, Cleveland, OH USA

Axia Audio, the IP-Audio division of Telos, is displaying the industry’s most complete line of networked mixing consoles at IBC 2013 in Amsterdam — five different models in 16 different sizes, with features to match the needs of virtually any studio:

  • Element, the best-selling IP-Audio console in the world, comes in sizes from 4 to 40 faders in 9 different frame sizes, with a variety of module types offered in both silver and bronze colors. Element has 4 stereo mix buses, Aux sends and returns for sub-mixes and effect loops, onboard voice dynamics and EQ, automatic mix-minus and 40 Virtual Mixer channels that allow pre-mixing of multiple input sources for presentation on a single fader.
  • iQ, available in sizes from 8 to 24 faders, with its own custom-matched six-line Telos telephone system, the iQ6. iQ has 4 stereo mixing buses, talkback and automatic per-fader mix-minus, EQ for voice and codec inputs, OLED meter, clock, timer and channel displays, and separate monitor sections for CR and Studio monitor feeds.
  • Radius, an 8-fader mixer perfect for medium or downsize on-air studios, with four stereo mixing buses, automatic mix-minus, onboard voice EQ, custom-designed LED meters, OLED channel displays and Show Profiles that allow engineers to save frequently-used console configurations for fast recall.
  • DESQ, a 6-fader console that fits into just 18” of desktop space. DESQ has two stereo mixing buses, and features the same automatic per-fader mix-minus as its bigger brothers, along with OLED meter, clock and channel displays, voice EQ and more; perfectly suited to personal studios, dubbing stations, or anywhere big-console features are required in a small space.
  • RAQ, the 6-fader networked console that mounts into 4RU of rack space. RAQ has two stereo mixing channels, OLED meters and channel displays, automatic mix-minus, and Show Profiles. It’s perfect for TOCs, news and VO booths, OB vans, shipboard broadcasting, or any application that requires a full-powered rackmount mixer.

Axia Audio is the world’s most popular IP-Audio networking system for broadcast. Over 4,500 studios are on-air using Axia Livewire technology; more than 50,000 connected devices, such as codecs, audio processors, phone systems, and digital delivery systems, are in the field. Axia networks have a total system capacity of more than 10,000 audio streams, and can carry hundreds of digital stereo channels (plus machine logic and PAD) over a single CAT-6 cable, eliminating much of the cost normally associated with wiring labor and infrastructure.

Visitors to IBC can see the entire family of Axia networked broadcast consoles at the Telos Alliance display in Hall 8, Stand 8.D30, in the RAI Center. For more in-depth information about Axia products, and for media information, contact Clark Novak at Axia via email at, or call +1 216-241-7225.
