WEBE-FM, WICC get studio makeover

13 January, 2011, Cleveland Ohio, USA

Cumulus Media’s Bridgeport, Connecticut radio cluster will soon get a makeover with Axia IP consoles and audio networking gear.

A/C WEBE-FM and News-Talk WICC will install five studios’ worth of AoIP gear, including fiveElement 2.0 consoles andPowerStation integrated console engines, PathfinderPRO routing control suite, a variety of Axia audio nodes, and IP-Audio Driver for Windows® software. The sale was made by Broadcasters General Store of Ocala, Florida.

Axia allows broadcasters to quickly and easily build audio networks using 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 (plus machine logic and PAD) over a single CAT-6 cable, eliminating much of the cost normally associated with wiring labor and infrastructure. Axia Element 2.0 radio consoles are a hit, with installations in over 2,000 studios worldwide.
