22 May 2013, Cleveland Ohio, USA
Axia Audio welcomes well-known FM transmitter company Elenos (www.elenos.com) to the growing list of broadcast equipment companies whose professional audio equipment connects, via Livewire networking, to Axia IP-Audio networks.
“More and more, broadcasters prefer audio equipment that enables real control throughout the plant,” says Marty Sacks, VP/Managing Director of Axia. “The ability to share audio, command route changes, and configure and monitor devices from console to transmitter, all from the central engineering office, is very attractive to station chiefs with lots to do and little time to do it. That’s what Livewire networking does, and it’s just one reason we’re glad Elenos has chosen to become part of the Axia family.”
“Elenos is really proud to partner with Axia Audio,” says Elenos Marketing Manager Matteo Tumidei. “This is just the beginning of what we are confident will be a fruitful and long-term relationship that allows us to offer to our customer the best technologies on the market.”
Livewire, the popular broadcast networking protocol developed by Axia parent Telos Systems, uses Ethernet to easily route and share combined audio+logic channels throughout the broadcast plant. As an Axia Livewire Limitless License partner, Elenos can build Livewire interfaces directly into its products, allowing instant one-cable connection to Axia networks and communication with products from more than 60 other Livewire hardware and software partners.
The Livewire Limitless License entitles partners to build Livewire into an unlimited number of devices for a one-time license fee of just $500. As an L3 partner, Elenos receives access to Livewire interface designs, specifications, source code and development information, and an option to purchase the Livewire SIM, a compact pluggable 72-pin Single Inline Module which fits Dolby-E type slots.
