Orlando, FL (May 7, 2004)–Fox owned-and-operated WOFL-TV has purchased two Euphonix Max Air digital audio consoles. The decision to buy the Max Air consoles was made after an in-depth demonstration in the Euphonix Max Air Broadcast Tour Vehicle at WOFL.
WOFL’s VP of engineering, Ken Preston stated, “It was great to have the Euphonix Max Air Tour truck pull up to our station. It made it extremely easy to demo the console.”
A 24-fader Max Air will be installed in the station’s new control room in April 2004 and a 16-fader console will be installed in WOFL’s already existing control room in June 2004. Both consoles will be used for broadcasting news throughout central Florida.
WOFL-TV is part of one of the nation’s largest owned and operated network broadcast groups, Fox Television Stations, Inc., which consists of 35 stations in 26 markets covering nearly 45 percent of U.S. television homes.
Vice president sales, southern region, Michael Franklin, explained, “Max Air is known for helping to take the operational pressure off complex situations. There are so many concerns that you have when broadcasting the news but Max Air really puts minds at ease. It has proven to perform well for our clients even during the most challenging broadcasts and this is what makes the console and the Max Air Broadcast Tour so popular. People want to see what the latest digital audio console for broadcast has to offer and we make it happen.”
The Max Air Broadcast Tour is a specially commissioned truck outfitted with a 96 channel Max Air mixing system, set up to simulate a local TV station digital audio control room. It is currently touring throughout the U.S.
