Some, but not all Axia audio consoles offer built-in audio inputs and outputs. Mic level, analog line level, AES/EBU, and even GPIO are available on some Axia platforms. The iQs software audio console is similar to our Quasar and iQx consoles with complete flexibility for broadcasters to provide the right mix of networked I/O. As more and more audio sources and destinations are natively Livewire or AES67, the Axia iQs simply connects via Ethernet to your AoIP network, able to subscribe to any AES67 stream on your network, up to 30 simultaneously. Similarly, Axia iQs outputs are all on the AoIP network, too. PGM outputs, mix-minus, headphones, monitor speakers—everything—becomes available on your AoIP network. If an Axia iQs is your first AoIP console, you’ll need a qualified Ethernet switch and at least one Axia xNode to provide either Livewire clock and PTPv2 clock to synchronize any other devices. Telos Alliance xNodes are available, ready to connect with microphones, analog audio devices, and/or AES/EBU digital devices.
