NETIA joins the Axia Partners network

10 April, 2006, Cleveland Ohio, USA

Axia, the IP-Audio networking division of Telos Systems, announces the addition of NETIA to the growing list of Axia partners.

France-based NETIA (, a leading supplier of digital broadcast software, can now supply their clients with bundled, customized Axia IP-Audio networking components that allow any audio workstation PC running Windows® to send studio-grade audio directly to an Axia audio network from its network interface card — completely bypassing the need for PC soundcards.

“NETIA’s partnership with Axia Audio opens up an entirely new world of control for radio broadcasters,” said Xavier de Vynck, Vice President of NETIA. “The audio networking capabilities of the entire Axia product line, combined with NETIA’s ability to provide users complete management of their processes –from capture to multichannel broadcasting – over a variety of devices, provides a truly scalable, end-to-end solution for radio broadcasters.”

“Broadcasters capture, edit and play dozens, sometimes hundreds of audio streams every day,” notes Axia president Michael Dosch. “Combining NETIA software solutions with the Axia IP-Audio driver will allow their clients to streamline this process significantly, reducing cost, time and effort.”

Axia partners ( offer software and hardware products that integrate directly with Axia IP-Audio networks. In addition to the soundcard-eliminating IP-Audio driver, the Axia system includes a family of microphone, analog line and AES/EBU “audio nodes” and DSP mix engines, as well as the popular Element Modular Control Surface and SmartSurface Studio Control Surface.
