NEW DIGITAL AUDIO CONSOLE FOR ON AIR AND PRODUCTION APPLICATIONS ON RADIO AND TELEVISION
ATRIUM is the new digital audio mixer shown for the first time at the IBC 2019. It 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.
