STUDIO CONTROL OVERVIEW

Axia Studio Control Panels are a family of options panels designed for flush-mounting in desktop or turret cabinetry. They allow you to place control of headphone source selection, mic off/on control and even GPIO machine control at talent and guest desk positions, where they’re most convenient.

STUDIO CONTROL FEATURES

  • Six accessory control panels for convenient talent / guest control of frequently-changed options, including headphone and mic control, GPIO closures, routing scene changes tied to Axia PathfinderPC software, Talkback to CR board op or Guest postions.

  • Easy RJ-45 connection to console CANBus control network.

  • May be flush-mounted in any flat or vertical solid surface.

  • All panels measure 6” x 2”; require 2” mounting depth.

STUDIO CONTROL IN DEPTH

Options are just a touch away.

Axia consoles are nearly synonymous with “flexibility.” You can save show settings and recall them in an instant… customize backfeeds and routing salvos… share audio sources and control throughout your facility… and that’s just the beginning. Axia helps you customize your studio too, with accessory control panels that work seamlessly with your consoles to give talent fast access to headphone, mic and select switching controls.

 

Mic Control Panel 

The Mic Control panel gives talent or guests remote control of their mic channel. Press the Talkback key, and you open a comm channel to the board operator. There’s a handy Mute key for those “frog-in-the-throat” moments, too. Works with all Axia consoles.


Producer's Mic Control Panel

Designed especially to suit the needs of busy talk show producers, the Producer's Mic Control panel provides control of microphone On/Off/Mute functions, and includes two special Talkback keys so producers can easily converse with studio remote talent. Works with all Axia consoles. 

Headphone Selector Panel

The Headphone Selector panel lets talent control their own headphone feeds. Turn the knob and control the volume. Push the knob, scroll through the list of available sources, and push again to "take." Preset buttons are provided for instant access to two programmed sources. Works with Element consoles. 

Mic Control / Headphone Selector Panel

Why choose when you can have it all? Combination Mic Control/Headphone Selector panel gives talent remote control of headphone source and volume, mic channel on/off, and includes Mute and Talkback functions. Works with Axia Fusion and Element Consoles.

Five-Key Filmcap Button Panel

The Five-Key Button Panel can be placed wherever remote control of contact closures or routing commands is desired. Film-legendable keys contain LED backlights with individual color settings, and work with Pathfinder routing control software to put fingertip control right where it's needed. Works with Axia Fusion and Element Consoles.

Four-Key SmartSwitch Button Panel

Four-Key SmartSwitch has illuminated, dynamic LCD keys that can change text and backlight color based on conditional logic macros you contruct in Pathfinder routing control software, using simple drop-down tools. Works with Axia Fusion and Element Consoles. 

STUDIO CONTROL SPECIFICATIONS 

  • Desktop panels require access to Axia control network via CAT-5 connection.

  • Flush-desktop mounting style requires routed 6” x 2” cutout in countertop or work surface. 2” of space required behind each panel for adequate connector/cable clearance.

  • Not all panels work with all Axia consoles. Consult Axia or your Axia representative for specific applications.
