BERLIN�Stagetec, a Berlin-based specialist in digital mixing consoles and audio routers, has added the On Air flex to its line of mixing consoles.
The mixing console can be controlled both by using conventional hardware elements and the remote user interface RUI, which runs on any end device with a current browser. RUI will be shown at the IBC with additional modules, new rotaries and clearer function grouping. This gives the user direct access to the standard operations of the broadcast mixing console. It also provides extensive configuration options, which are available for customizing the functions and user interface.
A new library feature enables storage of presets, which include routing, dynamics and EQ settings. At the press of a button the console restores these individual settings. The EQ and dynamics unit is controlled from the virtual interface RUI as well as directly via the mixing console hardware.
On Air flex is an individual broadcast mixing console. The three components of On Air flex; audio processing, control elements and control intelligence, communicate with each other. Stagetec selected the standard IP protocol as the communication medium, streamlining cabling and increasing the freedom of physical location of the individual elements.
Remote User Interface is configurable and it emphasizes the flexibility of the mixer. RUI runs on any end device that has a current Web browser.
With the help of custom configuration software, the mixing console configuration can be defined. This enables the user to adapt the mixing console to suit the workflow of their radio or TV station.
Like On Air 24, the On Air flex is a modular mixing console system with processing power provided by a Nexus XCMC board. It can process up to 40 input channels when configured with 8 groups, 8 sums, 8 auxes and 8 mix-minus buses. A further configuration with up to 54 input channels without groups is also possible. The input and output connections are available through the Nexus network, which can range from a single, locally installed Base Device to a campus-wide audio network.
