Cumulus Media has chosen Axia consoles and routing systems to update its
five-signal Modesto, California radio cluster. KAT Country 103 FM, The
Hawk 103.9 FM, KWIN 98.3 FM, KHOP 95.1 FM and ESPN Radio 970 AM will be
the recipients of all-new studios; the group are part of the stations
acquired through Cumulus’ recent purchase of Citadel Broadcasting.
The sale, made by Broadcasters General Store of Ocala, Florida, includes
12 Element 2.0 mixing consoles with PowerStation integrated console
engines, along with assorted Axia audio nodes and routing equipment.
Element 2.0 is the best-selling
IP console in the world, with over 2,000 in daily service. Element can
be ordered in sizes from 4 to 40 faders, in single or split-frame
configurations, and features 4 Program buses, automatic mix-minus,
comprehensive talkback, built-in source EQ, voice dynamics by Omnia, a
number of Aux Sends and Returns for production use, and can mix in
stereo or 5.1 surround.
console engines help clients shave time and effort from studio
installations by combining the console power supply, analog, AES and mic-level
audio I/O, GPIO logic, mixing engine and Gigabit Ethernet switch into a
single fan-free rack unit. PowerStation Aux expansion units double the
audio I/O and add fully-redundant backup power as well.
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 (plus machine
logic and PAD) over a single CAT-6 cable, eliminating much of the cost
normally associated with wiring labor and infrastructure.
