Reliable operation and straightforward fault detection are fundamental to any broadcast console design. A resilient product needs more than redundant components to provide real world protection. Max Air includes special techniques in its design. Max Air is not a single CPU based product. It is a scalable distributed modular system in which every surface section always contains the complete console set up and can control such as needed. The system communicates within a star formatted network via 100Mb/S Ethernet connections, and is an inherently fault tolerant design. If, for example, a surface section failed, all the other sections remain totally unaffected, leaving the console in otherwise normal working operation.
