Isle of Man gets Axia consoles, IP Intercom

Manx Radio refits with Axia

14 July 2011, Cleveland Ohio, USA

Manx Radio (, the long-time independent broadcaster serving the Isle of Man, and voice of the annual International Isle of Man TT motorcycle race, has chosen Axia Audio consoles, routing systems and intercoms to upgrade its operations.

The sale, made through Axia UK distributor Broadcast Bionics, includes a suite of 4 Element 2.0 IP consoles with PowerStation integrated console engines, several Axia IP Intercom rack stations and IP Intercom console drop-in modules, and multiple Axia audio nodes for routing and audio distribution.

Axia Element 2.0 radio consoles are installed in more than 2,000 studios worldwide. They can be customized with a variety of available modules, including hybrid control modules for Telos talkshow systems, Production modules with direct control over source EQ and console auxiliary send buses, and intercom modules.

Axia IP Intercom is a broadcast intercom system that includes rackmount and desktop stations, and drop-in modules that allow seamless communication directly from Element consoles. IP Intercom delivers full-bandwidth audio via Ethernet, and its unique interconnection between intercom and console allows audio from any station in the broadcast plant to be immediately brought to air.

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 radio consoles are a hit, with installations in over 2,000 studios worldwide.
