AVATUS — Stage Tec’s IP console in use

Posted on: Thursday 13th of September 2018

The Berlin-based manufacturer of professional audio equipment is presenting its IP console AVATUS at IBC. Having introduced the AVATUS concept for the first time last year, the Berlin-based developers have brought a much more advanced pre-production version which is already in use. The first company to use AVATUS is tpc switzerland ag. The technical service provider of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SRG) has been a Stage Tec customer for many years. The IP mixing console was installed in Production Truck 2 (Prowa 2), which is used in radio productions.

AVATUS connects via standardised TCP/IP interfaces with  each module having its own IP address. This will enable the control surface to scale as required without restrictions on the number of channels or the functionality. AVATUS will come in sizes ranging from a single 12 fader panel up to eight panels with 96 faders. 

The AVATUS user interface concept is based on the fact that only the relevant context-related functions are displayed on large multi-touch screens. Also new is colour coding the faders and rotary encoders which gives a contextual connection and facilitates a quick, intuitive way of working. 

AVATUS uses the DSP Core (RMDQ) already familiar from AURUS and will always have sufficient channels and sum buses available for all common applications. The console will integrate features such as the de-esser as an audio module, loudness metering and the Stage Tec automixer. Incorporated in a NEXUS network, AVATUS will have access to almost unlimited audio input and output resources in any format.

“We are aiming to implement new technologies in AVATUS while maintaining proven concepts. The IP console is our response to customer requests and market trends. AVATUS represents the ideal compromise between tablet computers and the established, tried and tested AURUS”, explains Dr Helmut Jahne, managing director of Stage Tec.
