WBGL expands Axia installation

New Element 2.0 consoles join existing Axia studio

17 November 2010, Cleveland Ohio, USA

Family Friendly Radio’s WBGL-FM (www.wbgl.org) in Champaign, Illinois has become a repeat Axia client, adding on to their Axia network with a recent order of three Element 2.0 audio consoles plus associated studio equipment. The purchase expands WBGL’s Axia installation to four studios; the sale was made by Broadcasters General Store of Ocala, Florida.

“WBGL put their first Axia studio on-air in 2005,” notes Axia marketing director Clark Novak. “They were so pleased that when the time came to refresh their other studios, they chose Axia again. We’re happy to be a part of their growth!”

WGBL’s studio routing network now includes four networked Axia consoles along with a variety of audio nodes and PowerStation integrated console engines. The system also makes use of the Axia IP-Audio Driver for Windows, a software application which enables PCs to output audio for use directly on-air using the computer’s NIC instead of a sound card.

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 over a single CAT-6 cable, eliminating much of the cost normally associated with wiring labor and infrastructure. Axia Element 2.0 radio consoles are installed in over 2,000 studios worldwide.
