Axia makes it easy to build large, IP-based routing networks of up to 10,000 audio streams. We also make hardware tools to help your operators control all that networking power. Along with PathfinderPC and PathfinderPRO routing control software, Axia Routing Control Panels put fingertip control of inputs, outputs and routing scene changes anywhere you’ve got a rack space.

The 17-button SmartSwitch Router Control Panel features backlit LCD buttons with dynamic text and color to provide 1-touch remote access to often-used machine-control or software functions. Multiple pages of button assignments can be programmed and recalled with just a touch; use PathfinderPC’s Stacking Events Editor to map single commands or complex routing salvos to any button. Easy-to-use Web-based configuration pages can be accessed from any PC on the Livewire® network.



  • Slim panel design mounts in any 1RU rack space.

  • Fanless, convection-cooled.

In Depth

Axia control panels let you place routing power anywhere — in a studio turret, a TOC control panel or an equipment rack. These accessory control panels work with Axia’s PathfinderPC and PathfinderPRO routing control hardware, allowing you to map routing commands – from simple contact closures to complex logic-driven events – to any button for fast execution.

Film-cap controllers with LED-backlit keys can be illuminated with a choice of colors; keycaps are film-legendable for quick function identification. SmartSwitch panels have dynamic, backlit LCD buttons that can change color and text with user activation. And the rack-mount 8-button SoftSwitch panel has high-resolution OLED buttons that can be loaded with user-created bitmaps for instant function identification. And the XY Routing Control Panel allows convenient on-the-fly routing of networked sources from anywhere in your facility; route any source to any output of your choosing with just a couple of knob twists.
