Stage Tec @ NAB / prolight+sound
World premiere for the NEXUS IP interface, presentation of the AVATUS IP console, new AURUS and CRESCENDO highlights
Stage Tec, the Berlin-based manufacturer of professional audio equipment, will present a range of innovations at prolight+sound (3.1 G83) and NAB (N1424). As a German premiere, Stage Tec will show two new boards for the NEXUS audio routing system. AVATUS, the IP mixing console — first introduced as a concept a year ago — is now ready to try out. New features are being presented for AURUS and CRESCENDO mixing consoles. CRESCENDO-T is premiering, a special version of the console for theatres.
Stage Tec’s Router Interface AES67 (RIF67) — the latest board for the NEXUS router — will be shown and demonstrated for the first time in Germany. The equivalent for the NEXUS Base Devices — the NEXUS Fibre and IP Interface (XFIP) — is brand new and will have its world premiere. Both boards implement the AES67.IO module as a result of the partnership with DirectOut and support the approach of non-proprietary audio and control networking. The module enables powerful audio networks to be created via an audio over IP connection.
Modular, flexible and fully IP-based — Stage Tec introduces its new AVATUS mixing console. The many functions already implemented give an excellent impression of the intuitive workflow-oriented operation. The AVATUS display and operating philosophy is based on large multi-touch screens. Only the currently relevant, context related functions are displayed. Also new is the colour coding of faders and rotary encoders, which enables rapid and intuitive operation. AVATUS varies in size from one to eight fader panels, which connect via IP and allow for distributed placement for remote productions. Coupled with the decentralized mode of operation, dispensing with the centre section gives users ultimate flexibility, for example in multi-user operation.
For the first time, Stage Tec will present CRESCENDO-T at prolight+sound — a compact console with special features customized for theatre applications. The console will only be shown in Frankfurt.
Stage Tec’s new Software Release 4.5 also adds a number of audio processing highlights for AURUS and CRESCENDO. Customers in all fields will benefit from the latest features — in broadcast, production and post-production, and at live events.
