Austin, Texas-based KVUE recently completed the installation of a96-channel Max Air digital audio mixing console as part of its upgradeto an all-digital station. With Daybreak, a two-hour morningshow, and four additional newscasts each day, the station needed aconsole that could switch quickly between broadcasts and provideadditional input and mixing capabilities for more complex audiorequirements, including surround.

Assistant chief engineer Ernie Saldana reported, "We really likedthe simplicity of the wiring, especially the Ethernet connectivitybetween the surface and the racks, and the way we can place remote micpreamps in the two studios and the newsroom and adjust them from thedesk. We are very short of space in the control room, and with Max Air,we can fit in a full-featured 96-channel surround console with minimalcabling as all the rack electronics are remotely situated in themachine room."
