ATRIUM, a new AEQ digital audio mixer and XPLORER is the new intercom wireless belt-pack for broadcast and multimedia production centers

IBC 2019 Stand. 8C55 Amsterdam September 13 to 17. 

"VIP code for IBC 2019 - 4798"


ATRIUM is a digital audio mixer specially designed for on-air audio production for Radio and Television with high demand operational requirements and workflows.

ATRIUM can manage up to 1000 audio channels of local content or AoIP controllable through one or several control surfaces, each with up to more than 90 motorized faders with pages for snapshots or memories

Developed with the user in mind, it has a great simplicity of operation through a powerful set of touch screens, encoders, indicators and keys, which can be pre-configured, and dynamically adapt their function to the context, avoiding unnecessary steps, and maintaining the precise information always visible, so the operation is simple and safe.

AEQ ATRIUM has been designed taking advantage of the possibilities that technology provides at this day and age:

AoIP systems allow the signal inputs and outputs, and the process or control elements, to be distributed in different equipment, sometimes physically very distant. This new mixer incorporates tools with the capacity to develop redundancy at all levels, the storage and instant recovery of snapshots, the convergence of physical and virtual control elements, the automatic mixing and level adjustments, the transport of control inputs and outputs to the different equipment in a system, etc. All these possibilities that the ATRIUM state-of-the-art technology offers, generate a new concept in which the sum of the different components develops a combined functionality far superior to that of each component separately.

Each ATRIUM control surface and its individual controls can be customized for any operation. Thus, classic workflows can be implemented, for example: each fader can have A / B configuration, or each channel has direct access to sending to pre-defined buses, or the two-way multiplex channels can be defined so that each user is allocated a mix-minus or N-1 channel. User can also configure mixed or very special workflows with flexible programming of keys to act on the routing of the console, maybe controlling external equipment such as routers, audiocodecs, telephony broadcasting systems, broadcast automation, or perhaps intercom systems; in definitive, adapting the console to each possible operational scenario.

Finally ATRIUM’s great simplicity of configuration and integration within a system as already covered, is not only restricted to the local production center, but reaches outside. It allows connecting with external events and remote production centers, enabling the creation of a multi-channel audio network as extensive as the user application may require.




XPLORER is a wireless intercom terminal based on 5GHz WiFi technology. It can be part of a system based upon an intercom matrix, or as a terminal for a Party-Line system without the need for a central matrix.


5GHz WiFi connectivity simplifies installation, start-up and maintenance of the XPLORER system as the wireless technology following the worldwide standards for implementation. It even allows the use of existing wireless networks to be used to service these terminals. 5 GHz WiFi systems with managed access points, can support many hundreds of simultaneous conversations, and develop the “roaming” function that prevents communication cuts when user moves inside a complex network of access points.

XPLORER is equipped with a user interface with 4 operation keys (and 4 pages associated, so in total can communicate up to 16 different destinations), in addition to the mute and menu keys. This new belt-pack includes a big color TFT multifunction screen where for example the keys are labelled and each partner's level is displayed, user also can check the charge level for the battery and the WiFi signal are represented.

XPLORER can be supplied with open or closed, mono or binaural headset.

XPLORER has a recording playback function for the last 30 seconds corresponding to the last call or communication to the terminal.

The belt-pack can work as a client for AEQ Crossnet and Conexia Intercom matrices. XPLORER can also work in Party-Line mode, as a terminal for the Kroma E@synet system, with 4 channels and up to 28 devices.

The belt-pack has dual volume control to give direct access to the level adjustment of the main interlocutor, differentiating it from the rest. XPLORER dimensions and weight are reduced, it is bump and splash protected, it can be attached to a belt, or to a shoulder strap. Its antenna is internal, of great gain. The internal battery of this new AEQ belt-pack provides more than 20 hours of uninterrupted operation in normal use. This is more than enough for an intense working day, and the terminal is recharged in a multi-charge base with quick docking charge connection.

New XPLORER is a reliable, flexible, comfortable and robust wireless belt-pack system to complement all types of intercom systems both in television production and in other professional and industrial environments.
