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 (www.cmt.com) 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.
