You don't need an expensive routing switcher to have all the benefits of one.
Networking revolutionized computing... so why not broadcasting? With Axia, it's easy to build an an excellent routing switcher - as big or as small as you like. All you need are some Axia Nodes (audio network adapters), one or more Ethernet switches (depending upon the size of your desired network), and our PC-based router control package.
Configuring an Axia routing switcher is easy with our software routing application PathfinderPC. Advanced features like Virtual Patchbays, automatic switchover/backup on silence and clock-based scene changes can manage even the most complex assignments, without ever being complicated.

Plug into the Network.
Getting your audio into the network couldn't be easier. Just connect your source to an Axia audio node; there are models for use with both analog and AES sources. There's even an Axia node that works just like a traditional X-Y router control panel, but with a big difference: audio in and out is available on the same box. Getting audio from PC workstations is even simpler: using Axia, PCs send and receive audio directly to and from the network -- without soundcards or audio converters.
Budget-friendly? Are we ever.
How much does Axia cost, compared to old-fashioned TDM audio routers? A lot less. Since there's no mainframe, the base cost is low - you can make a small system at very reasonable cost and expand it over time. Even the total cost of a large system will be much lower then older approaches due to the use of standards-based computer networking technology. Want to read more? Download the latest NOW!
