Hawai’is Ohana Broadcast (www.ohanaradio.com) has taken delivery of 6 studios worth of new Axia Audio consoles and networking gear to be installed in their five-station Honolulu station cluster.
Ohana’s KQMQ-FM, KUMU-FM, KPOI-FM, KDDB-FM and KKHA will all get new Axia Element 2.0 mixing consoles backed with PowerStation integrated console engines. Highlights of the order include 6 Element consoles, 6 PowerStation console engines, and 13 copies of the Axia IP-Audio Driver for Windows, plus several Axia audio nodes, which interface traditional analog and AES signals to the networked AoIP environment.
The sale marks Axia’s first installation in the Hawai’ian islands.
“It’s great to be part of the new facilities at Ohana,” says Axia Marketing Director Clark Novak. “In Hawai’ian, ‘ohana’ means ‘family.’ That fits right in with the Axia philosophy — we try to treat our clients like family, more than just customers.”
A big part of being in a family means being there when you’re needed. To that end, Axia is always on-call with 24/7 Support, ready to help whenever our clients need us — the only radio console manufacturer to offer such ‘round the clock technical service.
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. Axia Element 2.0 radio consoles are a hit, with installations in over 2,000 studios worldwide.
Axia, a Telos company, builds Ethernet-based professional IP-Audio products for broadcast, sound-reinforcement and commercial audio applications. Along with the popular Element 2.0 modular console for on-air, commercial production, audio workstations and personal studios, Axia products include the PowerStation integrated console engine, intercom systems, digital audio routers, DSP mixers and processors, and software for configuring, managing and interfacing networked audio systems.
