Axia iQ Expansion Frame Options




8-Fader Expansion Frame

IQ_8Fader_CarouselThe iQ 8-Fader frame doubles the size of your iQ instantly. It’s simple to expand the capacity of iQ consoles, even after they’ve been in service, so you can easily grow your iQ system; expansion frames plug right into the QOR.32 integrated console engine. Like all iQ frames, the 8-Fader expansion comes equipped with Axia’s rugged, anodized machined-aluminum surface, conductive-plastic faders, aircraft- quality switches and LED button lighting. Can be physically joined to Main Frame or left separate.


6-Fader Expansion Frame with User Keys


Put machine control and GPIO-triggered routing commands at your operators’ fingertips with this iQ expansion frame. In addition to the six additional faders, 10 User Keys can be software-mapped to control audio delivery systems, send contact closures or route GPIO commands to studio devices.


6-Fader Telco Expansion Frame


Puts integrated phone system control right where it belongs: on the console, to help eliminate distractions and errors. Along with six silky-smooth conductive-plastic faders, this frame includes on- the-board hybrid controls for the matching Telos iQ6 six-line telephone hybrid (it works with other Telos phone systems, too). The learning curve is low: exclusive Telos Status Symbols readouts on sharp-as-a- tack OLED displays, along with familiar twin hybrid controls, make easy work of busy call-in segments.


iQ6 6-Line Telco Gateway

IQ6FrontCMYK_PBThe iQ6 broadcast phone system was custom-designed by the phone experts at Telos specifically for iQ consoles. It works with the hybrid controls built into your iQ’s Telco expansion frame (and with Telos VSet6 phone controllers). Connect it to the QOR.32 console engine with a CAT-6 cable, plug in your phone lines, and start taking calls.



iQ is the perfect self-contained, standalone console for an individual studio. But should you wish to expand and network with other studios, iQ can grow with you. Simple Networking lets you daisy-chain up to four QOR.32 engines without the need for an external Ethernet switch. You can add iQ expansion frames to create consoles as large as 24 faders. Other optional frames add control for Telos telephone systems and GPIO routing functions to the console.
More smart stuff: iQ remembers. Four Show Profile memory positions let you set, save and recall snapshots of console settings for later use. High-resolution Organic LED meters (bright, high-resolution displays that are bright and legible, even under direct lighting) offer switchable VU or PPM metering styles, and the ability to meter two, three, or all four buses at once.
There are also OLED displays on every fader that provide source assignments, pan & balance settings, fader options and more — which means no additional computer monitors or mice to clutter up your studio. The display can also work with the Soft Keys just below to trigger GPIO events, step automation events, and adjust source input options.
iQ saves your studio furniture, too. Its desktop design lets you place it atop any solid surface — no templates to decipher or countertops to cut (unless you really want to). Since iQ only requires a single cable to connect control surface to mixing engine, even cable access holes can be small and unobtrusive. And iQ lets you choose between freestanding or contiguous console designs: you can easily join iQ expansion frames into one unit, or leave them separate to deploy a split-console design.
Like all Axia consoles, iQ is over-engineered for long life. It’s built with sturdy, premium materials, to withstand even the beatings a weekend overnight jock can give. It’s got sturdy, machined aluminum frame construction, LED button lighting, long-life conductive-plastic faders, and anodized – not painted! – surfaces with laser-etched markings that can’t ever rub off. But the most clever thing about iQ might just be its price. A 16-fader iQ costs about half what you’d expect to pay for a console with all these features. Now that’s pretty smart, don’t you think?



  • Multiple iQ frames can be joined to produce a single, large control surface, or operated separately if desired to suit studio design.
  • Assign any type of source to any channel with a twist of the Options knob.
  • Every fader has a stereo Preview (“cue”) function, with a unique interlock system for fast cuing of multiple sources.
  • Smooth, long-life 100mm. conductive-plastic faders resist dirt and contamination.
  • All functions can be accessed remotely for configuration, management and diagnostic purposes using any standard Web browser.
  • Optional Telco Expansion frame provides direct, on-the-console control of matching Telos® iQ6 six-line telephone system, or other Telos talkshow systems. High-resolution OLED displays use exclusive Telos Status Symbols for instant call status information. Includes a Dump key to trigger user-supplied profanity delay unit using GPIO closures.
