Console capability without the physical surface
Temporary studio anywhere (nontraditional studio space
Studios lacking physical space
Multiple users who need concurrent collaboration on a single mix
The iQs (the software version of iQx that does not require a physical surface), is the first soft console controlled by a full HTML-5 interface, allowing you to not only control a mix from anywhere, but on any device—Mac, Windows, tablet, laptop, even your phone! It’s available in two ways to suit your needs and comfort level.
There are 2 ways to deploy the iQs
iQs +AE1000 for easy virtualisation
Telos Alliance understands that virtualizing studio operations can be an overwhelming prospect. That’s why we are eliminating some of the legwork by pre-installing the iQs AES67 Mixing Console Software on a 1RU Telos Alliance AE-1000 Application Engine—our new line of universal servers—to help you ease into the virtual studio and prepare for the future. You can centralize the AE-1000 at the studio, yet give board operators the flexibility to control the iQs mix from a bedroom, a coffee shop, a makeshift studio...anywhere with an Internet connection.
iQs Container for the data center
iQs is available as a Docker container. Docker is a set of platform-as-a-service products that uses OS-level virtualization to deliver software in packages called containers. Containers are isolated from one another and bundle their own software, libraries and configuration files; they can communicate through well-defined channels. Docker is an integral part of the IT future.
Because iQs is available as a Docker container, it allows broadcasters to deploy it in a server farm or the cloud, delivering the added benefits of true virtualization, such as easier facility-wide upgrades, concurrent instances, and more, without site visits. Perfect for large installations of iQs console software instances.
iQs in a Docker container lets you realize your all-virtual future now because it’s available as a subscription-based model in addition to singular instances. A subscription allows you to be even more nimble—growing or shrinking the size of your system dynamically as your needs change. You only pay for the functionality you need, and you aren’t locked into any particular console configuration, large or small, for the ultimate in facility flexibility.
Browser-based (HTML-5) and therefore accessible from any device (Windows, Mac, Tablet, Smartphone)
