Pristine Systems to partner with Axia Audio for end-to-end solution

Axia Audio, the networked studio audio division of Telos Systems, has joined with Pristine Systems (, makers of the CDS32 Content Delivery System, to offer broadcasters integrated, end-to-end playout/audio delivery networks.
Pristine Systems will offer complete systems including Axia networking components, so that their clients can realise the benefits of content delivery using Axia's Ethernet-based scalable, modular routing technology. As an Axia partner, Pristine will also integrate the Axia IP-Audio Driver into CDS32 software, allowing clients to send IP-Audio directly to the Axia network from workstations and servers and eliminating PC soundcards.
George Thomas, Vice President of Research & Development for Pristine Systems, said Axia's unique approach attracted his curiosity first: "Having spent the past 30 years in broadcasting, and having a genuine love for audio technology, I was anxious to learn more about IP-Audio networks.
"A preliminary search revealed that Axia Livewire is currently the only platform that offers a complete end-to-end solution for broadcasters. Livewire is a technology whose time has come. Pristine's CDS32 - Content Delivery System - digital audio workstations now include the ability to interface with Livewire via analogue, AES3 digital, or direct IP networking.
"Any station building new facilities or upgrading existing ones should give this technology consideration," Thomas concluded.
"Digital delivery systems and Ethernet are a natural match," notes Axia President Michael Dosch. "and Pristine Systems has been providing content delivery systems to broadcasters for over 20 years. We're glad to welcome them as Axia partners."
Using the Axia IP-Audio system, broadcasters can now build audio networks of any size using standard Switched Ethernet to connect a few rooms - or an entire facility. Because an Axia audio network can carry hundreds of digital stereo audio channels over standard CAT-6 cables, much of the cost normally associated with wiring labour and infrastructure is eliminated.
The Axia system includes a family of "audio nodes" that allow easy mixing and matching of digital, analogue and microphone audio and eliminate PC sound cards, as well as the SmartSurface Studio Control Surface, and the new Element Modular Control Surface debuting at NAB.
See Axia at NAB at Stand N3616 for a complete demonstration of IP-Audio networking or visit for further information.
