Zenon-Media GmbH (www.zenon-media.com), the well-known German provider of broadcast software solutions, has joined with Axia Audio to enable direct communication from their popular ALL IN ONE playout software suite to Axia IP-Audio networks.
Equipped with a customized version of Axia’s IP-Audio Driver software, ALL IN ONE users will be able to send broadcast-quality audio, with embedded GPIO control logic, from any Windows®-based audio workstation directly to their Axia audio network. This is accomplished using only the computer’s standard network interface card — relieving Zenon-Media clients of the hassle and expense associated with multi-output PC sound cards, GPIO interfaces and multiple serial cables.
According to Dominique Wenger, CEO of Zenon-Media, “Radio and TV professionals are beginning to realize the numerous benefits of tightly integrated distribution and content delivery systems. We believe that distribution of audio using IP networks will revolutionize broadcasting in the coming years. Our partnership with Axia helps place Zenon-Media on the leading edge of that revolution.”
“IP-Audio networks give users the ability to easily transport audio, control logic, Program-Associated Data and standard network traffic over the same cable, using standard switched Ethernet, resulting in dramatic operational and construction cost benefits for new facilities,” says Axia president Michael Dosch. “Zenon-Media has embraced this concept, and we welcome their partnership in creating next-generation studio networks for broadcasters around the world.”
Zenon-Media joins the growing list of Axia partners offering products that integrate with Axia IP-Audio networks. In addition to the soundcard-eliminating IP-Audio driver, the Axia system includes a family of microphone, analog line and AES/EBU “audio nodes” and DSP mix engines, as well as the popular Element Modular Control Surface and SmartSurface Studio Control Surface.
