Four Element+PowerStation studios ordered for WBMX-FM

15 April 2009, Cleveland Ohio, USA

CBS Radio will expand the Axia IP-Audio network in their Boston cluster to include Hot A/C station WBMX-FM, joining classic rocker WZLX-FM, which deployed Axia studios in 2007.

WBMX will rebuild four studios using Axia’s new PowerStation™ integrated console engine, paired with Element 2.0 modular broadcast consoles. The sale was made through Axia distributor Broadcasters General Store.

“The WBMX project underscores one of the reasons Axia has become so popular with broadcasters,” says Axia marketing director Clark Novak. “Axia networks scale very easily, so clients can expand them whenever the need arises by simply plugging in new gear with Ethernet cable. We’ve seen many installations grow from an initial one or two studios, with clients adding more capacity as their time and budget permits.”

More than 1,000 studios worldwide are now on-the-air with Axia IP-Audio systems, which enable broadcasters to build audio routing networks of any size using standard switched Ethernet. 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.
