Information Radio Network installs Axia studio

19 May, 2008, Cleveland Ohio, USA

Information Radio Network ( has chosen Axia Audio to supply mixing and audio routing equipment for their new studios in Memphis, Tennessee. IRN programming is distributed via satellite to more than 700 radio stations daily.

The equipment includes a 20-position Axia Element console, Axia Analog Line Nodes, PathfinderPC(tm) Router Control Software and Axia iProbe network management software. The sale was made by Broadcasters General Store.

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. Axia products include the popular Element modular broadcast console, a family of "audio nodes" that allow easy mixing and matching of digital, analog
and microphone audio, and a comprehensive suite of network administration and routing control software.
