During the 2003 Australian Tennis Open (January 13-26), host broadcaster Seven Network relied on three Euphonix audio consoles, including two of the new all-digital Max Air systems, to provide exclusive Australian coverage for its own broadcasts, as well as feeds to 25 international broadcasters.

Seven Network employed over 300 of its staff, who had to make available all matches on any of the five major courts to international broadcasters as separate mono, stereo and multiformat live feeds. "The system complexity made the analog or digital decision for us," said John Hancock, head of technical production for Seven Network in Melbourne. "After seeing Max Air in October last year, we were confident that it had all the facilities and operational flexibility that we needed, and we were right!"

George Hennessy, audio supervisor at Seven Network Melbourne, said, "For me, Max Air was power and control with heaps of both. It's a wonderfully flexible, sonically accurate, intuitive broadcast mixer. Throughout the whole tournament, 14 days of competition plus seven days of setup, we found the consoles to be easy to operate, easy to setup and completely stable."
