AEQ brings Xpeak system to the audiovisual industry

AEQ will introduce its new AEQ Xpeak system to the audiovisual industry at ISE 2023 in Barcelona.

In addition, the Spanish manufacturer will also present the brand’s new solution for 2023, the Venus 4 and Venus 4+ audiocodec with IP connectivity, among other audio and video solutions for radio and television.

XPEAK is an intercom system developed on completely new concepts.

It supports up to 28 user terminals in different formats: desktop, rack, wired beltpack, wireless beltpack, and PC applications, which can be connected to each other with the highest operational flexibility and without the need for a matrix.

Connecting the terminals is easy, even in different locations, simply by giving them access to the internet they connect to each other.  This makes it easy to set up the coordination of remote productions.

In addition, they also have Bluetooth and USB connections, supporting all types of headphones with these connectivities and facilitating the connection with smartphones and PCs.

The Xpeak system is complemented by the XPEAK_IF interface, which provides analogue, USB digital and AES67/Dante AoIP inputs and outputs.

Perfect for remote productions of all kinds, such as sporting, social or political events; or coordination of different workplaces, such as emergency rooms or TV and radio production.

It is also recommended for all types of local coordination requiring up to about 30 users, such as TV, film and theatre productions, concerts, leisure centres such as amusement parks or cruise ships and corporate or industrial centres such as airports and hospitals.

Xpeak completes AEQ’s range of intercom systems, with modular matrixes such as Conexia, and compact matrixes such as CrossNET.

AEQ’s intercom family is completed with 8000 series user panels, Xpeak and Xplorer wireless beltpacks, with WiFi technology. Also present at the fair.

During the days of the show, AEQ will present for the first time to the public its new development for this year just started, the audiocodec Phoenix Venus 4.

This new stationary audiocodec docble for point-to-point links stands out for having IP connectivity and two simultaneous bidirectional stereo transmissions with different formats and qualities.

It also has SIP protocol and EBU N/ACIP standard, as well as OPUS algorithms (configuration support and remote control tools).

Venus 4 is available in two hardware versions: one with a front panel control and a more basic version with network and communications status indicators.
