Axia Audio is now shipping its X1, X2 and XY Router Control panels,
new additions to an already-extensive lineup of rack- and turret-mounted
control panels and console drop-in modules.
Axia’s X1 Router Control panel lets operators instantly route any
source on their Axia Livewire™ network to a specified destination. Users
can quickly scroll through available channels on the bright,
high-visibility display, then press the “Take” key to make an immediate
The X2 Router Control panel provides the routing functionality of two
X1 Panels in a single chassis; each separate control routes any
available network source to an individually specified destination. Axia
Router Control panels connect to the network via a single Ethernet
connection, and occupy 1 rack space.
The XY Router Control panel lets operators route any source to any
destination within the Livewire network. Select source, then
destination, press “Take” and the change is made at once. Ideal for
placement in control room, TOC, NOC or anywhere else hands-on access to
audio routing is required.
These XY controls are the latest additions to Axia’s wide variety of
routing panels, which include dynamic 9- and 17-button SmartSwitch
control panels with backlit, interactive LCD displays, economical 5-,
10- and 15-button FilmCap control panels, desk-mounted accessory panels
for producer/host access to routing functions, drop-in button panels for
on-console routing functions, and a Router Selector node with
independent AES3 and analog I/O.
The Axia IP-Audio system allows broadcasters to build audio networks
of any size 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 (or nearly a
hundred surround) channels over a single CAT-6 cable, eliminating much
of the cost normally associated with wiring labor and infrastructure.
Products include the iQ and popular Element 2.0 broadcast consoles, the
IP-Intercom system, a family of “audio nodes” that allow easy mixing and
matching of digital, analog and microphone audio, and a comprehensive
suite of network administration and routing control software.
Visitors to NAB2010 can see the complete line of Axia products in the
Central Hall at the Telos / Omnia / Axia display in Booth #C146. For
