Sleek, Ergonomic Design
Quasar features a sleek new look and extremely high-quality components, rugged enough for a lifetime of uninterrupted use. Designed based on extensive global customer feedback and ergonomic studies, Quasar has an easy-to-operate touchscreen user interface (no external display required) that operators can also access remotely via any HTML5 device. The absence of an overbridge makes for easy desk installation, and the console is fanless and modular, with redundant load-sharing power supply units.
Customizable and Easy to Use
Quasar makes the operator’s job dramatically easier, including new Source profiles (for sourceassociated logic automation), automatic mix-minus, and automixing an all channels. Extensive metering is 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. Users can customize their Quasar surface thanks to user-assignable buttons in the Master touchscreen module and in every channel strip.
For TV, production, or high-end radio applications, the powerful new Quasar Engine delivers 64 stereo input channels—all with robust DSP processing—and loudness metering on all outputs. Four programmable Layers allow the user to control all channels, including DSP, even on smaller surfaces.
Available in sizes from 4 to 28 faders per frame, with support for up to 64 faders in multiple linked frames, the console offers a reduced footprint and directly connects to an Axia network with a single or dual redundant Ethernet cable. Frames are available in both tabletop or flush-mount versions and can be converted from one type to the other.
Mature, Reliable AoIP TechnologyQuasar gives operators confidence with world-renowned Axia audio quality and reliability. The Engine’s native AoIP processing, based on a server-class hardware platform, ensures high-performance audio. The console’s sixth-generation technology is mature and sophisticated, offering extreme reliability, with system modularity minimizing single points of failure.
