Radio Systems adds Livewire to Millenium Consoles

13 April 2006, Cleveland Ohio, USA

Radio Systems announces their latest collaboration with partner Axia Audio: the addition of Axia Livewire IP-Audio networking technology to Radio Systems Millenium audio consoles.

Using a Livewire connection, Millenium consoles can interface directly to Axia audio networks as well as other Livewire-capable devices – such as digital delivery systems, codecs, audio processors and more – exchanging program audio, machine logic and program-associated data over a single Ethernet connection.

“The addition of Livewire to Radio Systems consoles enables even more broadcasters to experience the benefits of IP-Audio networking,” said Axia President Michael Dosch. “It’s exciting to see more and more manufacturers implement this standard.”

Radio Systems President Dan Braverman adds, “Livewire dramatically expands the functionality of our Millenium Digital console line. The fact that a broadcaster can start with our stand-alone console and add IP Audio connectivity adds great value.”

Radio Systems is a charter member of the Axia Partner network; having partnered early on with their StudioHub+ system of CAT-5 wiring which connects directly to all Axia Audio Nodes, facilitating fast, easy installation of IP-Audio networks.

Livewire technology allows broadcasters to build audio networks of any size using standard Switched Ethernet to connect a few rooms — or an entire facility, with up to 10,000 digital stereo audio channels per system. Axia IP-Audio networks employ switched Ethernet to carry audio, logic, program-associated data and other network traffic, greatly reducing or eliminating much of the cost normally associated with wiring labor and infrastructure.

Millenium Digital consoles are a recent addition to the popular Radio Systems line of analog and digital consoles, available in 6, 12 and 18 channel configurations. Over 1500 Millenium consoles are in use at small and large broadcast facilities throughout the US, New Zealand and Africa.
