The first KLOTZ DIGITAL AEON radio on-air console to be installed is now in service at SLB Radio Productions Inc. in Pittsburgh, PA, an award-winning public radio broadcaster addressing its program to families and especially to children. At SLB the 12-fader audio mixer is being used by seasoned broadcast professionals, children learning to broadcast and college students working on broadcast software and hardware evaluation at Carnegie Mellon University. The new digital radio console went on air during the grand opening weekend at the new Childrens Museum of Pittsburgh on November 6th.

With this installation KLOTZ DIGITAL has started the initial phase of the nationwide AEON roll-out and has begun shipping its radio on-air console to customers in the US. The AEON is a cost-effective high-performance mixing solution designed to meet the budgets of small and medium radio stations and was launched simultaneously in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific. Prices start at $10,000 including surface, audio engine and audio platform.

Lawrence M. Berger, Executive Director of SLB Radio Productions, is very pleased with his new digital audio mixer. ?AEON is very easy and simple to use - a feature that is very important to us, since children will be learning to operate the console, he said. ?This notwithstanding it has every feature an experienced broadcaster desires. The equipment looks stunning, an important factor as we are literally on display to over 100,000 annual visitors, Mr. Berger adds. ?As a non-profit corporation we at SLB had to build our new studio within a tight budget. With AEON we chose the latest technology available at a reasonable price.
