University of Texas, Austin selects Axia

19 March 2008, Cleveland Ohio, USA

The University of Texas at Austin has chosen Axia consoles and routing systems to power their student-run radio stations.

NPR affiliate KUT-FM and student-programmed KVRX-FM will get a makeover thanks to three 12-position and one 28-position Axia Element consoles; over a dozen Analog, AES/EBU and Microphone Nodes and 10 IP-Audio Driver for Windows® software drivers comprise the routing switcher. PathfinderPC™ Router Control Software, Axia iProbe Network Management Software and several Mic Control + Headphone Selector panels complete the order, which was placed through 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.

There are now more than 800 studios around the world built with Axia IP-Audio networks. For more information, please contact Clark Novak at Axia Audio by email at, or by phone at +1-216-241-7225.
