Stage Tec Launches IP console Avatus




Stage Tec has launched Avatus, a fully IP-based console. Reportedly, with Avatus - a new mixing console surface based on IP technology - Stage Tec relies on a completely new operating concept. Unlike previous consoles, centralized operation is not required. 12 color coded faders, two 21 "multi-touch displays and 48 double rotary encoders per unit can be combined to sizes from 12 to 96. Modular, decentralized and yet freely configurable, users can access all parameters at any time.

The color coding of the channel parameters guides the user intuitively and self-explanatory through the functions of the mixer. Each multitouch display can be used to control parameters of the audio channels in a detailed view, as well as to call up the functions of monitoring or a current status of audio channels. Visual feedback from various operator actions give the user security and an overview of his work. With its new patented concept of color-coded faders, Stage Tec supports a fast workflow.

With detachable metering displays and a significantly reduced overall depth, Avatus also has space in smaller rooms and offers a clear view of what is happening on the stage. With the remote control via an integrated browser application, the user has an additional tool, for example for setting up loudspeakers on or in front of the stage or to accompany the rehearsals directly from the auditorium. The most important parameters of Avatus can be achieved in the same color coding via the RUI.

A big advantage of Avatus is that the audio signal processing has been tried and tested many times over, as with Aurus and Crescendo, the DSP core RMDQ installed in the Nexus Star Router is used here. Embedded in the NEXUS network, AVATUS also has access to all inputs and outputs and can manage all resources. 128 freely programmable summing buses and up to 800 DSP channels are available.

Avatus is a logical evolution of Stage Tec's mixing technology and preserves proven concepts - making it an ideal compromise between Aurus, which has been tried and tested for many years, and a tablet. "The IP console is backwards compatible and allows even long-term customers to migrate from legacy systems to Avatus without sacrificing the proven audio quality," said Stage Manager Tec's Rene Harder, who is responsible for innovation management. "Due to the flexible design of the interface without restricting the equipment, we want to venture into new markets that were previously difficult for us to access, for example, small production facilities, studios and above all the live area."

The scaling of the user interface has no influence on the number of channel numbers or the functionality. Like all other Stage Tec consoles, Avatus is constantly evolving. Thus, as the latest release, the scene automation as well as the automixer and dynamic Nexus labels were implemented.
