CX Network Pty Ltd contains CX Magazine, CX-TV, CX Digital, CX APP, CXMAGBLOG and legacy material from Juliusmedia, Connections Magazine and Channels Magazine. We entered this business in 1990, prior to that founder Julius Grafton had operated various technical production supply businesses, since 1973. These included Graftons Sound and Lighting, and Australian Monitor.
We publish a high quality print magazine monthly for the Australian pro light, audio, vision and staging markets – which serve live, theatre, broadcast, installations and events.
CX Magazine is perfect bound, printed in Australia and sold to subscribers. CX E-zine is available as a digital pass emailed to subscribers, and is wired for email and internet links.
CX Magazine in Apple Newsstand is a rich and interactive APP edition with portrait and landscape layouts, containing embedded video and many contemporary interactive features to better engage with readers.
Unlike traditional trade magazine we do not sell editorial. Advertising is our primary income source, but we strive to maintain separation between commercial interests and serving our readers.
CX is one of very few paid circulation magazines serving a niche industry made up of passionate, informed specialists who have high expectations of our media.

CX has a diverse team of creative people, led by Julius Grafton with the underlying business managed by Steve James. We have a studio at Chatswood in Sydney’s north, where all important decisions are taken after consensus discussions over coffee supplied by Rob Forsythe. Very important meetings are often held at the Willoughby Hotel, especially on Thursdays when lunch is two-for-one deal. We prefer the Schnitzel, washed down with Fat Yak.
While we are usually relaxed, we rely on a retained flock of legal advisors to protect our interests. If you need to meet them, you will.
