Free upgrade for Axia IP-Audio Driver

Version adds Windows 8® compatibility
7 December 2012 Cleveland Ohio, USA
Axia Audio has just released an update for the Axia IP-Audio Driver for Windows®, making a no-charge upgrade available to all licensed users.

Version of the Axia IP-Audio Driver for Windows is certified for use with the new Windows 8 operating system, and also includes enhancements to ASIO mode Driver operation.

The IP-Audio Driver for Windows helps broadcasters reduce cost and cabling in-studio by eliminating the PC soundcards used in delivery system PCs, editing workstations and other playout systems. 32- and 64-bit Windows operating systems are supported, enabling users to connect their audio workstation and playout PCs directly to their Axia networks via Ethernet — no discrete audio I/O or logic cabling needed.

The Axia IP-Audio Driver is available in two versions: a standard version that provides one stereo output and one stereo input; and an OEM version available from Axia delivery system partners, which provides 24 bi-directional stereo channels.

Users of the single-stream IP-Audio Driver may download the software update from; users with the multi-stream version should obtain the update directly from their delivery system provider. A full listing of partners is located online at .

Axia allows broadcasters to quickly and easily build audio networks using 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 channels (plus machine logic and PAD) over a single CAT-6 cable, eliminating much of the cost normally associated with wiring labor and infrastructure.
