Stage Tec has announced a new version of its IP-based Avatus mixing console for theatre applications, with detachable screens.

Stage Tec Avatus (theatre)Due to structural restrictions, many theatres’ control rooms are built such that the sound engineers cannot see over the mixing console to the stage – Avatus now offers a solution to this problem, as the theatre version of Avatus is designed so that the upper screens are removable. Since the IP console is connected via standard TCP/IP interfaces, each module has its own IP address. This enables the screens to be installed anywhere within the Nexus network.

‘Avatus was developed to create an optimal symbiosis of flexible touch technology and proven haptic control elements,’ says René Harder, member of the Stage Tec management board. ‘The concept, based entirely on IP technology, is suitable for a wide variety of situations. Avatus can be tailored to various applications in theatre, broadcast and live.’

Avatus IP-based connections offer new possibilities for development of infrastructures and redefine the term ‘mixing console control surface’. Avatus is the world’s first audio console without a centre section, and will consist of only three different modules. The console will be available in sizes from 12 and 96 faders.
