Overview

With HD standards being adopted by TV stations and homes throughout the world, audiences are demanding a higher quality, surround sound experience. Broadcast audio operators also have to handle increasingly complex productions with ease—from news to sports to live show production, in the studio or on the road, often with a very small space to work in. For these reasons, modern broadcasters look to the Max Air, a standalone, compact digital audio mixing system designed to handle any challenge—at an affordable price point. Based on the proven technology of the System 5-B, Max Air shares the same DSP Core, I/O, integration with facility routers, and system redundancy—all controlled from an easy-to-operate, ergonomic control surface.
