The University of Missouri, St. Louis, has just taken
delivery of four studios’ worth of new Axia IP-Audio networking equipment,
to be installed at U of M’s NPR affiliate, KWMU-FM (www.kwmu.org).
Axia equipment supplied to KWMU includes 24-, 20- and
12-position Element modular
control surfaces, 25 Axia Audio
Nodes, and PathfinderPC(tm)
Routing Control Software for Windows®.

eliminating much of the cost and complexity normally associated with
wiring labor and infrastructure.
The Axia system includes a family of microphone, analog
line and AES/EBU “audio nodes” and DSP mix engines, the popular Element
Modular Control Surface and SmartSurface Studio Control Surface, and the
soundcard-eliminating Axia IP-Audio driver, which an be used to send audio
