In response to market interest, Cleveland, Ohio-based Axia has expanded its range of Element consoles.
“Axia clients asked us for a ‘mini-Element’ — a console with a smaller footprint and just a few faders, suitable for use in newsbooths, dubbing stations and as workstation mixers,” said Axia President Michael Dosch. “Now we offer Element in configurations as small as two faders, in a very small package.”
According to Axia, more than 400 Element consoles are in use in on-air studios worldwide. The company introduced the Element in 2005.
With the development of the new Element 2-Fader+Monitor module, users can set up consoles in configurations from two to 10 faders.
Axia will unveil the Element 2-Fader+Monitor Module at NAB2007, and start shipping it during the third quarter of 2007.
