University of Wisconsin chooses Axia

2 March 2009, Cleveland Ohio, USA

WSUM-FM, broadcasting from the University of Wisconsin's Madison campus, has chosen an Axia IP-Audio routing network.

The equipment, sold through Broadcasters General Store, includes two 28-position Axia Element consoles, a 16-position Element and a 4-position Element, plus six Analog Line Nodes, six AES/EBU Line Nodes, two Router Selector Nodes, PathfinderPRO™ Router Control Software iProbe Network Management Software. The order also included 20 copies of Axia iPlay, a Windows®-based software application that gives network listening capabilities and audio routing functions to PC users.

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.
