Allow the flexibility of Dante AoIP and the Forum IP Split to redefine your studio
AEQ’s FORUM digital consoles have been a great solution for broadcasters since 2010.The request from customers for even more flexibility has led to the SPLIT version of the AEQ FORUM IP Console. The Console is now a solution with a separate Audio Engine and SPLIT Control Surface modules allowing a more ergonomically and logical installation of the console in today’s space constrained Radio Studios.
The interconnection of modules and engine is a simple task and through standard shielded CAT5 Cables with RJ45 connectors, with the full functionality of the Forum IP which will be available alongside this new design
The FORUM incorporates all of the features necessary for any studio including: automatic monitor speaker cut-off, cough muting, fader start, control signalling, interface signalling for automation of external equipment, external communications management, intercom, etc.
