PowerStation is an all-in-one studio solution that combines audio I/O, a console power supply, mixing engine and built-for-broadcast network switch into one easy-to-deploy package. Each PowerStation Main provides 4 Analog inputs and 6 Analog outputs, 2 AES/EBU inputs and 2 AES/EBU outputs, 2 Microphone inputs with selectable Phantom power, 4 GPIO machine-control logic ports, each with 5 inputs and 5 outputs, an integrated network switch with 14 100BASE-T Ethernet ports and 2 1000BASE-T (Gigabit) ports with SFP, a heavy-duty Telecom-grade power supply with fanless convection cooling, and an industrial-grade CPU designed for harsh-environment reliability.
Use PowerStation Main with an Element® or Fusion™ mixing console as a standalone studio solution, or connect to other Axia equipment as part of a larger IP-Audio network. Simple Networking allows daisy- chain connection of up to 4 PowerStation-based studios without the use of an external network switch. Connecting a PowerStation Aux adds auto-switching redundant backup power and doubles audio I/O and GPIO capacity. I/O can also be easily expanded using Axia xNodes.
