iQ6: Six lines of crystal-clear caller audio. One easy RJ-45 connection.
A multi-line phone system that connects to your console with just one cable? Smooth, detailed caller audio — even from cellular callers? Meet iQ6, the Telco gateway for Axia's new iQ console. iQ6 plugs right into your Livewire AoIP network, saving you money and time by eliminating the cost and labor of old-fashioned discrete I/O, cabling and soldered connectors.
iQ6 puts audio, hybrid control and backfeed for six phone lines onto a single skinny CAT-5 cable. Setup is simple: plug it into your Axia network, do some fast web-based configuration, and your talent can control iQ6 right from your Axia iQ console.
You’re looking at a complete iQ console system, with QOR.32 console engine, iQ6 Talkshow system, and iQ control surface with onboard phone controller. Check AxiaAudio.com/iq for details.
The iQ Telco expansion frame shown above puts dual-hybrid control and Status Symbols information icons right on the mixer’s surface, so talent never has to take their eyes off the board to take a call. Seamless, on-console control of incoming lines and callers: take calls, dial out, step through pre-screened callers. Familiar Telos Status Symbols icons let board ops know what’s what with just a glance.
Want off-console control? You can also pair iQ6 with Telos VSet phones and their full-color, high-contrast display screens (shown above). iQ6 is extremely flexible: you can connect up to 12 control devices at once — phones, PCs or console controllers — to take charge from nearly anywhere. Separate Send and Receive level meters for each hybrid are conveniently located right on the front panel for extra monitoring confidence. And the included XScreen Lite software from Broadcast Bionics provides a full-featured software screening environment.
How does iQ6 sound? Like a Telos, of course! Inside, two of our most advanced hybrids handle up to six phone lines (POTS or ISDN — let us know which when you order). Those hybrids are equipped with Digital Dynamic EQ and adjustable smart-level, symmetrical wide-range AGC by Omnia to keep callers sounding clean, clear and spectrally consistent call after call. An adjustable caller override lets you dial-in just the right amount of call ducking. Our subtle, inaudible pitch-shifter helps prevent open-speaker feedback. And conference linking lets you set up high-quality conferencing between callers at the touch of a button — no external equipment needed.
iQ6 realizes the Livewire dream: one connector for all your studio audio and control — and brings it to telephony.
iQ6 comes complete with XScreen from Broadcast Bionics. When they asked if they could use these products as a platform for their new XScreen product, it took us about a millisecond to say "yes!" Partly because we believe in open standards and the benefits of partnerships, but also because we think XScreen is very cool. XScreen’s interface gives screeners and hosts tons of information and control using sophisticated visual talkback, including a drag and drop database of all calls for your show as well as a phonebook and visual warnings for persistent or nuisance callers. A fully-functional copy of XScreen Lite is provided to all VX customers, but an upgrade to the full XScreen client software adds even more features, including extended call history, an enhanced phonebook, prize management, powerful GPIO functionality plus more. XScreen, deployed as part of a Livewire network, also enables call recording, editing and console integration directly over the network.
