ENCO Systems and Axia Audio Announce Partnership

09 April 2004, Cleveland Ohio, USA

Axia Audio, the new subsidiary of Telos Systems specializing in networked studio audio products, has announced a partnership with ENCO Systems (www.enco.com), makers of world-renowned Digital Audio Delivery systems for broadcast.

As an Axia value-added reseller, ENCO will offer Axia audio networking components bundled along with ENCO systems, and will engineer these systems to provide their clients with equipment and accessories that will allow them to take full advantage of the capabilities of their ENCO-provided Axia network. ENCO will also license the Axia IP-Audio Driver for integration into ENCO DADPro32 application software, which will allow workstations and servers to send IP-Audio directly to the Axia network without the use of PC soundcards.

Says Don Backus, VP of Sales and Marketing for ENCO, “We've been watching the Axia engineers develop this technology with a great deal of excitement. We think the synergy of the Axia audio networking system, combined with our DADpro32 delivery system, will provide an unbeatable combination to broadcasters. Telos is a great company and we're proud to partner with them on Axia.”

“ENCO is a first-class software company and we're pleased to be their partner," said Axia President Michael Dosch. "Together, we can offer significant improvements in studio audio functionality, and at the same time reducing overall infrastructure costs. How often does that happen?”

Axia and ENCO will both be exhibiting at the 2004 NAB Convention in Las Vegas; visitors are invited to see Axia in the Telos booth, N1416, and featured in the ENCO booth, N2426.
