AEQ brings best of both to intercoms
AEQ is combining its broadcast audio technology with the intercom experience of sister company Kroma for Conexia. The platform has been designed to be an integrated solution for the centralised management of audio signals in TV and radio studios and a fully featured intercom system.
Conexia calls on a Kroma intercom master controller and an AEQ audio matrix. It has a capacity of up to 1,024 x 1,024 cross-points and a modular card structure. The manufacturer believes the unique aspect is Conexia’s ability to integrate intercom and broadcast audio sources into the same matrix, with internal sampling at 48kHz at 24-bit and a redundant system at all levels. According to the manufacturer, integrating broadcast and intercom audio this way allows the grouping of all available audio sources and avoids the management of two disconnected, unrelated, parallel audio systems in an installation.
The system has been designed to be compatible with all Kroma intercom terminals and interfaces with the full range of Kroma accessories including telephone and GSM as well as and AEQ cards for Madi, fiber optic, IP and VoIP. The solution can also integrate a broadcaster’s communications using the AEQ Phoenix family of AudioCodecs for IP, ISDN, PSTN(POTS), 4G and 3G through Conexia’s intercoms management software, CrossMapper.
