Axia Quasar™ XR AoIP Mixing Console

Telos Alliance

With the introduction of the Quasar v2.0 Major System Update, the original flagship Quasar console becomes ‘Quasar XR’. Existing Quasar users can upgrade their console to XR by installing this free system-wide update, which adds scalability and modularity to the original console. V2.0 also introduces Quasar Soft and Quasar Cast remote control and monitoring solutions, delivers full integration with Telos Infinity® IP Intercom products, and adds support for new Quasar Accessory Modules, along with numerous other powerful features. This advanced scalability addresses new workflows, like Work from Home, and gives broadcasters more flexibility when it comes to the number of channels they need in their Quasar Engine, starting at 16 channels and scaling up in blocks of 16 channels up to 64 channels. 

Quasar XR is designed to be the top-of-the-line mixer, with four key differences from the step-down Quasar SR model. For one, XR has extensive metering built into the surface right where it needs to be—on every channel display and next to each fader, as well as on the monitor module. These LED meters allow users to live mix rather than merely confidence monitor, giving users active control over their environments for the best possible outcome. 

Secondly, Quasar XR has motorized faders as standard—a must for addressing complex workflows that require the use of Layers or for use with a sophisticated remote solution. These motorized faders greatly increase console operation speed when recalling entire console configurations that contain preset fader positions.

Quasar XR also features dynamic assignment of fader modules, which allows the user to freely assign Fader modules to a Master Module. Dynamic fader assignment makes it possible to connect a fader module installed in a physical frame chassis to a different surface installed in another studio and make it part of that surface.
