Imagine a broadcast console with a built-in six-line phone system.
Imagine talent running a call-in show seamlessly, smoothly, never having
to reach across a countertop to fiddle with a phone — looking instead at
an integrated phone hybrid section built right into the board, with all
the controls falling naturally under their hands.
You don’t have to imagine — it’s real, thanks to the Telos iQ6 Telco
Gateway that adds a complete multi-line broadcast phone system to Axia’s
new iQ broadcast console with just one cable connection. Telos iQ6 isn’t
a standalone hybrid; it’s a professional phone interface that saves
money and time by plugging right into a Livewire network. This
eliminates the cost of discrete I/O, cabling and soldered connectors,
and slashes installation time.
iQ6 works directly with any Axia iQ console equipped with the Telco
Expansion Frame, which adds six faders plus two hybrid controls with
Status Symbols™ to the iQ Main Frame. Once connected to the iQ Core, iQ6
sends its six lines of caller audio, hybrid control and mix-minus audio
to the network on a single CAT-5 cable. A built-in webserver enables
easy administration via Web browser from anywhere in the plant.
iQ6 can handle up to six phone lines, either analog (POTS) or digital
(ISDN PRI) phone lines, and contains two 3rd-generation Telos hybrids
with Digital Dynamic EQ; the same advanced hybrids found in Telos Nx12
and Nx6 Talkshow Systems. iQ6 also has exclusive new AEC Advanced Echo
Cancellation from Frauhnhofer Labs, revolutionary technology that
literally eliminates open-speaker feedback to allow natural,
free-flowing on-air conversations while using regular studio monitors.
iQ6 features and benefits include:
- Adjustable DDEQ to keep sound signatures uniform from caller to
- Symmetrical Smart AGC by Omnia automatically keeps levels
- “Long-tail” echo suppression helps tame echo on satellite,
cellular, and VoIP calls
- Status Symbols Visual Call Management icons gives talent and
producers line and caller status at a glance
- Built-in remote control capabilities for recording devices and
profanity delay units
- Fraunhofer AEC technology eliminates feedback in open-speaker
- Single-wire Livewire™ connection to Axia IP-Audio networks
- Easy Web-based configuration and remote administration
In addition to the controls built into the iQ Telco Expansion Frame,
iQ6 owners can control their Telco Gateway using the new VoIP-based
Telox Vx Phone, or the Vx Producer software with built-in Soft Phone, to
make, take and screen calls directly via the producer's PC.
