Earlier this year, the University of Newcastle in New South Wales, Australia, installed a Klotz Digital console in its media production facility for the School of Design, Communication and IT.

In order to enhance the radio and journalism components of its degree courses in communications and to give students hands-on experience, the university used funding received in late-2006 to replace an old analog console with a Klotz Digital Xenon.

"What swayed me to the Xenon was its out-of-the-box pre-configuration. It allowed me, as an inexperienced user of digital broadcast consoles, the comfort of knowing that it would be simply a matter of slotting the console into our pre-existing framework within the studio," said George Hyde, technological officer at the University of Newcastle School of Design, Communication and IT.

The university specified a 12-fader Xenon for the 2NUR-FM radio studio, which was undergoing an upgrade at the same time as the editing suits.
