Broadcasters are making the shift to virtualization as software versions of broadcast equipment become available. The benefits of virtualization can’t be denied and are worthy of your consideration when pondering your next studio equipment purchase. In this webinar we’ll look into a true virtual audio mixer. We’ll see what the installation looks like with a demonstration, and further show how you can use the Axia iQs to quickly add virtual audio consoles in your station, at home, or anywhere else!
