Modular broadcast console
Axia Audio Element 2.0:
Element 2.0 has features such voice and headphone processing by Omnia, peak and average metering, one-touch phone recording, automatic mix-minus for every fader, an eight-channel virtual mixer that lets users combine multiple audio streams and control them with a single fader, motorized faders that can assume pre-set levels automatically, and show profiles that instantly recall talent's favorite settings. Element uses avionics-grade switches rated for millions of operations, bullet-proof optical encoders, conductive-plastic faders and a frame made from thick aluminum extrusions. It is available in sizes from two to 40 faders.
Eyeball: Eyeball is a Web cam with high-quality audio and video, making it perfect for instant messaging and video conferencing. It features Blue's condenser capsule, premium lens with Super HD video, camera-off privacy position with lens pop in and out, and plug-and-play ease of use. Using the same integrated stand and case design as in Blue's Snowflake USB mic, the Eyeball also includes a custom designed monitor adapter making it simple to position it on virtually any laptop or desktop monitor.
Tri-amplified monitoring system
1038CF: The 1038CF tri-amplified active monitoring system features loudspeaker drivers, slim speaker enclosure (only 9.25"/235mm), dual eight-inch throw bass drivers, multiple power amplifiers and active, low level crossovers. Designed for medium-sized control rooms, the full-range monitor has low-end response down to 30Hz. The system has a built-in tri-amplifier unit, delivering a total of 420W into two 8" long-throw bass drivers, a 5.12" proprietary Genelec midrange driver and a 1" metal dome tweeter.
DSPX-AM: The DSPX-AM includes a wideband window-gated AGC, a four-band window-gated AGC and a four-band limiter followed by an oversampled distortion-controlled clipper. A separate look-ahead final limiter allows simultaneous full 20kHz processing for digital radio. Like its little brother, the DSPXmini-AM, it also features adjustable low pass filtering to accommodate all AM standards, high frequency equalization, asymmetrical clipping, low frequency transmitter tilt compensation and a tone generator to facilitate easy installation and adjustment. A range of factory presets were designed to produce loud and intelligible sound for talk radio as well as achieve the best fidelity on music formats. The DSPX-AM is a 1RU processor with front-panel LED metering that is also remote controllable via TCP/IP or direct serial connection.
Gamma 3000: The Gamma 3000 features 1,250W power amplifier modules coupled with the hot pluggable power supplies. The power amplifiers and power supplies are independently operated and removable from the front of the unit while it is installed. They are load sharing. The minimal 10W of drive required can be provided with the optional PTEK FM25ES exciter. The Gamma 3000 is simple and quick to install. The system is 4RU weighing 88 pounds.
