DHD.audio has completed a significant renovation project at the Bogotá headquarters of Colombian broadcaster Blu Radio. It installed the latest-generation DHD RX2 and SX2 consoles in the main studio and completed audio systems integration through technical support provider Aspa Andina.
“Blu Radio has been operating very successfully with DHD audio production systems right back to the station’s inception in 2012,” says William Herrera, senior technical support engineer at Aspa Andina Colombia. “It is firmly established as one of Colombia’s most important radio channels and has the country’s most extensive DHD system. This includes over 14 control surfaces operating 52-MX, 52-RX, 52-SX and 52-DX modules installed in 2012 and a centralized matrix with over 500 physical inputs/outputs supporting analog audio, digital audio and MADI data.
“The main studio modernization gives Blu Radio’s production team a wide range of powerful new resources designed to maximize operational efficiency and flexibility. The new RX2 and SX2 systems replace the main studio’s existing 52-MX console and two 52-SX surfaces. Among the new features are 10-inch IPS TFT screens with five-point multitouch capability allowing precise configuration and fast control. Also included are talkback modules for the program host and producers, all connected to a single XC3 core.
“At the same time, we implemented a new TX2 control surface for mixing and operation of Blu Radio’s new visual radio service on YouTube. This fully integrates with the network’s current DHD system, including multiple audio channels over IP through the Audinate Dante protocol.”
“We are very pleased about how well Blu Radio’s renovation project went,” adds Lennart Mackies, marketing manager at DHD. “The new setup, including our RX2, SX2 and TX2 consoles, will hopefully be a long-lasting and modular solution for them. We hope that our technology will continue to help broadcasters around the globe connect with their audiences and their onsite or network-connected colleagues.”
