A new ‘split’ version of AEQ’s Forum IP mixing console was on show in Amsterdam. The Forum IP Split is a direct result of customer requests for greater flexibility, said AEQ.
The new version offers the control surface as a separate unit from the Engine or Core. Further, the control surface has been split into modules that can be installed individually. Interconnection between the modules and to the engine is made with standard Cat5 wiring using RJ45 connectors.
They also can be embedded in to studio furniture.
From a configuration and operation point of view, Forum IP Split is no different from the original, self-contained version. However, this new model supports larger configurations with up to 24 fader channels.
The set-up and configuration application is still ‘the easiest to use available on the market’, claimed AEQ.
