Harman’s Studer, based in Regensdorf, Switzerland, has adopted the Axia Livewire AoIP standard. Livewire is a broadcast networking system that uses Ethernet to provide an easy way to route and share audio and logic throughout the broadcast plant.

The Studer Broadcast Academy (SBA) is a free training and broadcast engineer certification facility housed in a custom built, 73-foot-long truck.

Under the Livewire Limitless License (L3), introduced this year, Studer is licensed to build a Livewire interface into any or all of its products, allowing for an instant single-cable connection to Axia networks and products from more than 30 other Livewire hardware and software partners.

“We decided to adopt the Livewire standard from Axia following consultation with many customers on our new product strategy,” says Andy Trott, Harman’s vice president and general manager of Mixers, Microphones and Headphones for Soundcraft, Studer, and AKG. “Studer is embracing a very ‘open standards’ philosophy as we launch more and more broadcast systems, and this is the first of many new partnership initiatives that we will be announcing over the next 18 months to provide our customers with increasing flexibility.”

“Axia clients realize that the value of the network isn’t the network itself—it’s the variety of devices the network can connect to,” says Axia President Michael “Catfish” Dosch. “The addition of Studer products to the already-impressive list of broadcast equipment that connects to Livewire underscores just how strongly broadcasters value standards-based networking.”

Studer recently launched the OnAir 1500 small-footprint broadcast and production console, and the Vista 5M2-22, the smallest Vista ever produced. Both products can be seen as part of the Studer Broadcast Academy (SBA), a free training and broadcast engineer certification facility housed in a custom built, 73-foot-long truck that is currently touring the U.S. Similar training is offered at the Soundcraft Studer Customer Experience Centre and factory near London, England.
