DHD Audio has completed a new audio studio installation for the Israeli public broadcasting corporation Kan. A Series 52 18-fader RX2 console, a DX four-fader desktop mixer, four touchscreen-controlled Series 52 TX and an XC2 Core have been chosen for Studio 6. This studio completes the transition from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and is one of more than 20 scheduled to be equipped with DHD Audio mixers.
The project is being progressed by Jerusalem-based broadcast audio systems integration specialist Broadcast Design.
“This is one more step in the complete supply and installation of new state-of-the-art radio studios in four locations across the country,” commented Micha Blum, Broadcast Design’s founder and CEO.
“DHD takes operational flexibility and customisation very seriously. Because everything is ‘inside’ DHD, it saves a lot of third-party equipment. The integral TFT screens mean there is no need for an external PC. DHD mixing systems are based on an Ethernet-linked core processor and input/output modules, typically located in the central apparatus room. They are reliable, flexible and fully customisable, scaling from a single studio to multi-site network.
“DHD equipment scores especially highly in terms of configurability, giving customers the freedom to add extra studios or include more inputs, outputs or faders during the initial build stage or at any desired time in the future. Audio performance and build quality are superb, ensuring long product life. DHD Audio’s technical support team is fast and friendly. Another plus point is the ease with which we can integrate third-party products, including in this case telephone interview interfaces and playout automation.”
“The installation specified for Studio 6 includes a technical control room which can also function as a self-op suite,” added Christoph Gottert, DHD’s international sales manager. “DHD system infrastructure consists of an XC2 Core, an 18-fader RX2 console, a DX and four TX panels. The configuration comprises a production/editing/screening desk, a talks studio currently equipped for five guests but expandable to eight, and a DJ suite with two CD players and a DX panel plus a TX panel for the host and co-host. A TX-equipped news booth can also act as an editing booth. All user control screen menus for this project are in Hebrew text as our interfaces and configuration displays are compatible with Unicode standard character sets.”
