Telos Alliance Launches Axia Altus Virtual Mixing Platform
Telos Alliance launches the Axia Altus virtual mixing console.
As a software-based solution, Altus brings the power and features of a traditional console to desktop and laptop computers, tablets, and smartphones running any modern web browser. Full-function mixing – including eight virtual auxiliary mixers and integration with Telos VX broadcast phone systems – allows distributed and remote workforces to collaborate on recorded programs and live broadcasts, including contribution audio and monitoring.
Additionally, Altus is ideal for any situation where fast deployment is necessary, such as setting up a temporary studio, building a low-cost disaster recovery center, or quickly launching a remote broadcast. The possibilities are limited only by imagination, which is why Altus captures that “I didn’t know I could do that!” feeling.
Altus is delivered as a Docker container, a method of software deployment used extensively in modern IT environments that provides a high degree of flexibility on- or off-premises to meet your needs now and in the future using non-proprietary COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) hardware.
“Altus provides all of the flexibility and efficiency that comes with software solutions, but more than anything, it empowers and invites broadcasters and content creators to think and work in ways they never thought possible before,” explains Greg Shay, Chief Technical Officer for Telos Alliance. “Our goal with Altus was to leverage the benefits of virtualization while preserving the familiar feel Axia customers know and love.”
