Axia Provides Voice of Russia

Voice of Russia’s Istanbul studios have undergone an Axia makeover. The organisation generates nearly 180 hours of programming each day in 32 different languages, making it one of the most prominent broadcast operations in the Russian Federation. “Istanbul has a complete Livewire on-air suite, a control room, six-microphone guest studio and a two-microphone news reading studio,” said Nick Ditlov, Technical Director of TRACT Ltd of St Petersburg, who supply all Axia equipment in Russia. “The main console is a 20-channel Element with PowerStation. The studios also include a Telos Nx6 Talkshow system, and two independent 247 delivery channels that use Telos Z/IP ONE Codecs to deliver Turkish programming to Moscow.”
