Axia Wins Award at NAB Radio

6 November 2008, Cleveland, OH USA

Axia Audio was presented with a 2008 Advancement in Radio Technology (ART) Award at the NAB Radio Show in Austin, Texas, by the editors of Radio magazine.

The Axia Element modular console won the 2008 ART Award in the category of “Audio Routing and Control,” favored by the readers of Radio over 18 other products fielded by 15 manufacturers.

“We are very grateful to the broadcasting community,” says Axia’s Marketing Manager, Clark Novak. “When Axia debuted, no one had tried to transport broadcast-quality audio over standard Ethernet. Now, 5 years, 23 partners and over 1,000 studios later, Axia networks have become the standard for broadcasters looking for bulletproof, scalable, cost-effective IP-Audio consoles and routing systems.”

“The Advancement in Radio Technology Awards were created to recognize products and services that are available now. The winning products and services exemplify the evolution of technology and how it benefits radio broadcasting,” according to Chriss Scherer, editor of Radio magazine.

With Axia, broadcasters can 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 channels over a single CAT-6 cable, eliminating much of the cost normally associated with wiring labor and infrastructure.

Axia products include popular Element modular broadcast consoles, 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.
