CLEVELAND, OH – 6 December 2018 – Axia® launches its new iQx AoIP console today. It looks like a traditional console, but it’s actually a surface and mix engine rolled into one. Axia dove deep with AES67, giving users access to every source, anywhere on the network with nearly limitless connection possibilities.
Traditionally, surfaces need to be connected to a separate mix engine, the so-called “brains” of the system. Axia iQx combines the mix engine and surface into one unit. That‘s one less component and connection users need to worry about when building their studios, allowing them to get up and running quickly and easily.
Built from the ground up as an AoIP console, iQx is AES67-compliant and stands fully capable of supporting emerging standards including SMPTE 2110-30. There’s no limit to the number of sources and connections users can access on the network.
If you already have an existing AoIP network, you may not even need to add additional I/O, meaning you don’t have to pay for I/O interfaces you don’t need. You can connect your iQx and access any audio source, anywhere on the network, from anywhere in the world. If you have iQ consoles on your network, simply drop in an iQx and share resources without having to add additional equipment.
Create an instant studio by adding a Telos Alliance xNode to support local microphones, headphones, and any other sources you might want, and you’re up and running fast. Add additional xNodes or an xSwitch to expand I/O and network switching capabilities as needed.
While iQx is sophisticated inside, it’s familiar on the outside so there’s no steep learning curve. Configuration is also a no-brainer thanks to a built-in web GUI—no proprietary application required. And while some locations where consoles are installed can be tight on rack space, iQx doesn’t require any thanks to the integrated engine. The console can be placed tabletop, without the need to modify furniture. All while offering network and power redundancy expected by world-class broadcast facilities.
iQx is great for nontraditional studio setups too, such as a temporary studio for a special event. Broadcasters can add or move a studio quickly with iQx or mix sports, remote talent, or audio that isn’t located in your studio, bringing in sources from all over the world. Control is not just a local thing either; an iQx can be controlled from the remote site, so no in-studio operator is required. With iQx, you have access to everything, everywhere.
In addition to its own unique advantages, iQx is an AoIP console at its heart, giving broadcasters all the benefits that come with an AoIP network. More flexibility, easier and faster installs, cost efficiency, a decentralized system without a single point of failure, and the ability to upgrade from analog one studio at a time are all upsides of AoIP. Once a source is on an AoIP audio network, it can be made available to any device on that same network. In the analog days, this could only be accomplished with costly routing switchers or stacks of distribution amps. Now, any station with an AoIP network has this capability built in. Finally, with no analog audio physically inside an AoIP console, you reduce or even eliminate interference that can compromise sound. With AoIP, stations enjoy much cleaner audio throughout the studio facility.

Riedel’s MediorNet real-time media network and Artist digital matrix intercom are providing the decentralized and redundant signal routing and communications backbone on board two all-new, state-of-the-art OB vehicles for Ruptly, a Berlin-based international news agency. Qvest Media, a world-leading system architect and integrator for the broadcast and media industries, designed and built the new broadcast van and DSNG vehicle.
WUPPERTAL, Germany — Dec. 13, 2018 — Riedel’s MediorNet real-time media network and Artist digital matrix intercom are providing the decentralized and redundant signal routing and communications backbone on board two all-new, state-of-the-art OB vehicles for Ruptly, a Berlin-based international news agency. Qvest Media, a world-leading system architect and integrator for the broadcast and media industries, designed and built the new broadcast van and DSNG vehicle.
Ruptly’s new production vehicles feature an innovative and lightweight body design, developed by Qvest in close cooperation with partner Carrosserie Akkermans. Despite their compact dimensions, the two vans offer state-of-the-art equipment optimized for high-quality 4K and UHD productions — including live coverage of news, events, and sports, as well as cinematic-style documentaries.
“The decentralized routing approach of Riedel’s MediorNet makes it ideal for the rigors of live broadcasting, and it delivers great cost savings for 4K and UHD productions. MediorNet not only reduces single points of failure, but also creates powerful operational efficiencies by allowing us to place physical I/Os closer to where they’re needed. Then, integrated processing capabilities including embedding/de-embedding and up/down conversion reduce the need for single-purpose peripheral devices. These features result in significant weight savings that enable Qvest Media to exceed our expectations without exceeding the weight limit of 3.5 tons,” said Ahmet Cakan, Chief Technology Officer, Ruptly. “Our two new vans had their baptism by fire during a high-profile international football tournament in Russia, and the performance of MediorNet was more than satisfactory. We know we can count on MediorNet to deliver the perfect blend of high-quality output and reliability for even our most demanding live productions.”
Ruptly’s MediorNet network consists of five interconnected MicroN media distribution devices with four of them handling signal distribution and processing and one providing virtual multiviewer capabilities. With decentralized routing provided by MediorNet, all audio and video signals are distributed in real time between connected nodes in the OB truck, the DSNG van, and MediorNet Compact Pro stageboxes that can be placed wherever they are needed.
An Artist 32 digital matrix intercom mainframe enables robust and reliable crew communications for each vehicle. The Artist intercom supports four RSP-2318 SmartPanels and three Bolero wireless beltpacks, with intercom signals distributed by MediorNet. Operators, administrators, and crew now profit from enhanced workflows due to the seamless integration and perfect interplay of all panels and beltpacks.
“Versatility is a critical factor in the design of OB and DSNG vehicles. With Riedel’s MediorNet installation, we have once again shown how to achieve a high level of technical quality and versatility, with minimal space and with a competitive budget,” said Norman Tettenborn, Principal at Qvest Media. “This system required a particularly compact and efficient media and communications backbone. We knew these requirements could be met with Riedel Communications as their MediorNet offers redundancy, scalability, and a decentralized topography, making it the ideal solution for modular system design for live broadcasting.”
