The AEQ CAPITOL ultra-compact mixing console makes digital technology available to stations where converting to digital has not been feasible. Its flexible design allows it to be readily adapted to any ON-AIR application. Boasting essential features such as automatic monitor speaker cut-off, cough muting, fader-start, control signaling, interface signaling for automation of external equipment, external communications management, intercom and more, the CAPITOL system is made up of a control surface and a 2RU mixer engine. It is available in a standard version (CS) ready to be counter-sunk and a tabletop version (TT) with a mounted desktop chassis. This is the tabletop version.
Thanks to its design and reduced footprint, AEQ CAPITOL adapts perfectly to any environment: auto-control, studio control, television production, sound production, mixed configurations, integration in large installations and more.
The CAPITOL's control surface with its 8 faders and complete control sections can be substituted or supplemented with “VIRTUAL CAPITOL”, a Windows-based software application. It reproduces every detail of the control surface and all the operational features of switches, rotary encoders and faders. It also shows all information and internal menus that are visible in every display of the physical control surface. Used as a remote control, the application provides the user with total control of all the features and functions of the mixing console, including the remote representation of the VU meters, making CAPITOL a great choice for an unattended broadcast station.
CAPITOL's configuration allows any signal present within the system to freely be assigned to any control channel and signal distribution and routing configuration is done on the control surface itself. Signals that are not assigned to any specific channel can even so be routed with total flexibility. Input and Output levels can also be easily adjusted.
