Country Music Television is kickin it with Axia

Element consoles, PowerStation-based routing system to bow in Nashville

1 June 2009, Cleveland Ohio, USA

MTV Networks’ Country Music Television ( has purchased Axia Element mixing consoles and routing gear for use in their Nashville studios.

Among the equipment purchased are two 20-position Element 2.0 consoles, each paired with one of Axia’s new PowerStation integrated console engines, to be used in CMT’s program origination studios, and Axia’s PathfinderPC® router control software suite.

PowerStation, introduced at NAB 2009, was the winner of both Radio World’s “Cool Stuff” andRadiomagazine’s “Pick Hit” awards for its seamless integration of audio I/O, console CPU, mixing engine, Ethernet switch and redundant backup power into a single, fanless chassis.

Element 2.0, the latest version of Axia’s popular modular broadcast console, has become a best-seller in just 5 short years. Over 1,500 Axia consoles are already on-air around the world.

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.
