D&R Axum Digital Broadcast Console 12 fader Offer.

DROPTHROUGH SYSTEM PARTS: 12 FADERS CRM SECTION |ETX CONTROLLER | RACK ONE |1x BREAK OUT PANEL (configuration laptop TFT screen not included in delivery)

The AXUM is a modular completely preprogrammed
The broadcast Console that can grow with you and your organization any time, any moment.
I/O cards can be shared between systems and a Broadcast station that has decided to use the AXUM as their main and support mixers can be sure to have invested in a
future proofproduct. The Axum can be used for small local 4 fader desktop use as well as large scale (128 faders max) production work and everything in between.
A large matrix of 1280x1280 with extensive signal processing on a maximum of 128 stereo channels is available that can be assigned to Sixteen stereo summing
mixing busses and sixteen monitor buses as well as directly between the maximum of 4 DSP's.
Imagine a console where you can decide yourself what a switch/encoder or fader will do for you. Not possible?.
With the AXUM this is possible and... you can do that yourself by selecting a function out of hundreds of functions simply selectable from a database in your AXUM browser.
Two control surfaces (with their own CRM sections) in different studios sharing the same I/O rack is also no problem for the AXUM platform. Hardware purchasing choices
are straightforward:

Rack ONE accepts a maximum of 21 I/O single slot cards.
Rack TWO accepts a maximum of 40 I/O single slot cards.
A Control Surface Frame starts with 4 faders as a minimum and can be extended to a maximum of 128 motorized faders plus Control/CRM section.
Each individual Control Surface Frame can be mounted drop through in a work surface left or right of your script space.
Interfacing with studio equipment is with high quality low cost readily available STP cable, also called shielded STP Ethernet cable, see breakout boxes below to choose from.
An internally generated webpage allows you to remotely control all settings anywhere over Ethernet and /or Internet.
The MambaNet protocol controls the communication between all system parts linked to each other with world standard Ethernet.
It gives such an enormous freedom in system solutions so we hardly can imagine that your needs can not be met with the AXUM.
A software Meter application is included and runs directly from the Control Surface, but also from any PC in the network.
Also hardware meters can be connected in the network anywhere, thanks to the

The switches on the channel-strip are software assignable to a function.
For instance the 'ON' Switch can be above or below the fader.
Any Control surface switch can do anything you want it to do, but... to not confuse you we have programmed a factory default assignment that represents
the working procedures of the average Radio Studio to start with.
Switches have long life dual color LED's. So every active function is clearly shown.
The basic desktop frames are built to use as a drop through frame in a furniture surface.
They can accept 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 pcs of 4 faders sections, or 2,3,4,5 pcs of 4 fader sections and 1 CRM/STUDIO section plus master blind.
With two frames (script space in the middle) you can have a maximum of 48 faders with CRM/STUDIO section.
If more faders are needed larger frame sizes are available upon request to achieve the maximum of 128 by fader controllable stereo channels this design can handle.
