The project involves the installation of Axia Element audio consoles in each of the 35 studios that make up the RFA news bureau complex. The order also includes studio engines and an IP-Audio routing network comprising 99 Axia AES, analog and microphone audio nodes.
Axia automation software for the project includes PathfinderPC routing control, iProbe network management and iProFiler program archiving.
The Washington build is the third project awarded by RFA to the Cleveland, Ohio-based company, following a five-studio installation in Bangkok, Thailand, and a two-studio installation in Seoul, South Korea.
RFA broadcasts in nine languages via shortwave and the Internet. It broadcasts news programs produced at the Washington, D.C. studios throughout Asia.
