From Radio World’s Who’s Buying What page: Minnesota Public Radio is in the process of swapping out 24 Axia Element consoles with new Axia Fusion consoles. The final studio upgrades are scheduled for completion in a few months.
MPR was among the early adopters of Axia, Telos said in a press release, and the Element consoles had been in service at the facility for more than a decade.
According to the announcement, MPR Chief Engineer Bill Dahlstrom (shown at right with a new Fusion console) and Director of Engineering and Facilities Tom Nelson chose Axia Fusion consoles, based on experience with Axia performance and the Livewire ecosystem, which Dahlstrom says simplifies operations and “costs because we are not interfacing physical outputs on devices.”
The Telos Alliance comprises Telos Systems, Omnia Audio, Axia Audio, Linear Acoustic, 25-Seven Systems and Minnetonka Audio.
