Axia likes Pilsner

Who doesn’t? But we’re talking about the city, not the beer.

Axia Audio hoists a frosty mug to Hitrádio FM PLUS and Hitrádio Dragon, located in Plze? (Pilsen) in the Czech Republic, who have just equipped their studios with Axia iQ networked audio consoles and QOR.32 integrated console engines.

The Axia equipment and installation/integration services were provided by Media Marketing Services, the Axia representatives in Prague. The sale included Axia iQ AoIP mixing consoles with expansion frames, networked DSP mixing engines and a variety of Axia Audio Nodes.

“Pilsen is the home of the original Pilsner beer, Pilsner Urquell. The successful launch of Axia at Dragon and FM PLUS was celebrated by the engineers in the local pub by ordering roasted duck with dumplings and cabbage and – of course – a ‘p?l litr’ of Pilsner,” relates David Beck, Chief Engineer of Media Marketing Services. (For English-speakers, that’s a pint.)

iQ consoles can be ordered in sizes from 8 to 24 faders, with expansion frames that host phone controls, programmable user keys and more. Their companion QOR.32 Integrated Mixing Engine is a fanless, convection-cooled console engine with audio I/O, console CPU, logic, mix engine, power supply and a built-for-broadcast, zero-configuration Ethernet switch — an Axia exclusive. Backup power with auto- switching is also available.

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.

Visitors to IBC in Amsterdam, 7 - 11 September 2012, can see the entire network of Axia products at the Telos Alliance display in Hall 8, Booth 8.D29. For more in-depth information about Axia Audio, For media information, contact Clark Novak at Telos Systems via email at, or call +1 216-241-7225.
