Axia goes back to school: Pepperdine University installs Element 2.0

21 September 2009, Cleveland Ohio, USA

Malibu, California’s Pepperdine University, home of student-run KWVS-FM, recently upgraded their studio facilities with Axia IP-Audio equipment and networked broadcast consoles.

Along with two 22-position Element 2.0 consoles, Pepperdine’s Axia order includes several AES/EBU, Analog and Microphone audio nodes, mixing engines, Call Controller modules that interface with Telos Talkshow systems, and Axia iProFiler networked audio logging software.

Axia has become a favorite with university telecom departments, says Axia vice-president Marty Sacks. “Axia systems are incredibly powerful, but also incredibly easy to learn,” comments Sacks. “Putting Axia in educational facilities is the perfect way to ensure that students are familiar with the cutting-edge technology they’ll find in commercial radio.”

Element 2.0, the latest version of Axia’s popular modular broadcast console, has become a best-seller. In just 5 short years, over 1,500 Axia consoles have gone into service around the world. And the Axia IP-Audio system allows broadcasters to build audio networks of any size using standard switched Ethernet to connect a few rooms, or an entire facility. Axia networks have a total system capacity of more than 10,000 audio streams, and can carry hundreds of digital stereo (or nearly a hundred surround) channels over a single CAT-6 cable, eliminating much of the cost normally associated with wiring labor and infrastructure.
