AEQ COMPLETES THE FIRST PHASE OF THE DIGITALIZATION PROJECT OF THE RUSSIAN NATIONAL RADIO
Russian National Radio selects the digital mixer AEQ ARENA for its BECTN 97.6FM channel
AEQ has finished recently the installation and start-up of its digital mixer ARENA in the facilities that the National Radio of Russia has in Moscow. That is the fifth AEQ ARENA unit installed, completing in this form the first phase of the project of digitalization of its studios. This unit will be operated in the channel BECTN 97.6FM
The unit supplied is latest generation ARENA digital console developed by AEQ. The configuration supplied consists of a 25-fader control surface, an associated central frame in which the digital and analog audio boards and the audio processing DSPs are installed, and a redundant 300-watt power supply.
Now 15, of the 25 physical faders available, are in use in the normal operation, remaining 10 like backup in case of possible failures. The AEQ ARENA mixer includes in addition up to 9 independent virtual pages on the same surface of control, allowing to control in a future if was necessary up to 235 different signals simultaneously.
All these elements were designed to offer the best audio quality in intensive working situations (24 hours a day, seven days a week), as is the case of these AEQ ARENA units installed in studios for On-Air applications, where the reliability and flexibility of the equipment are crucial elements.
The project was coordinated on the Moscow site by the excellent team provided by AEQ’s Russian distributor, Qualitron, backed by technical personnel from the AEQ head office in the configuration and start-up phase.
