The South African Broadcasting Corp. is using an Axia system for 15 mobile studios for remote broadcasts.
The 15 Axia Element broadcast consoles and associated IP audio routing equipment have been delivered; the sale was through Richard Fulton of Tru-Fi Electronics, a distributor.
“The Elements will be packaged into flight boxes and will be used for major outside broadcasting events where (outside broadcast) points will be established for all of the SABC’s radio services,” Fulton stated in the announcement. “This setup will be used to cover events like sports … elections, breaking news stories, etc.”
The system includes 15 Element Consoles, 15 Axia Analog Line Nodes, four Axia AES/EBU Nodes, 15 Zephyr Xstreams, eight Telos Nx-12 Talkshow Systems, and four Telos Zephyr iPort MPEG Gateways to interface to SABC’s main broadcast facility.
Dalet workstations using 15 Axia IP-Audio Drivers for Windows will provide audio content and recording services. The system is tied together using Axia’s PathfinderPC routing control software.
