Austin, Texas-based KVUE recently completed the installation of a 96-channel Max Air digital audio mixing console as part of its upgrade to an all-digital station. With Daybreak, a two-hour morning show, and four additional newscasts each day, the station needed a console that could switch quickly between broadcasts and provide additional input and mixing capabilities for more complex audio requirements, including surround.

Assistant chief engineer Ernie Saldana reported, "We really liked the simplicity of the wiring, especially the Ethernet connectivity between the surface and the racks, and the way we can place remote mic preamps in the two studios and the newsroom and adjust them from the desk. We are very short of space in the control room, and with Max Air, we can fit in a full-featured 96-channel surround console with minimal cabling as all the rack electronics are remotely situated in the machine room."

KVUE is ABC's local affiliate in Austin, Texas, and a Belo Corp. subsidiary. Visit its Website at To find out more about the Max Air, visit
