L1 equips its studios with DHD Audio Consoles

L1 has announced the renewal of its audio equipment with DHD. The public network of the province of the Linburg (Netherlands) has acquired a 24-fader RX2 console, two 22-fader SX2 consoles, 15 TX consoles, six XC2 core processors and an XS2 core.

After 15 years of operation, its facilities needed a new a replacement. L1 trusted on the system integrator AutoMates, which selected DHD Audio for the installation. The works were completed in four phases.

Nicky Hartsuiker, product specialist at Media Utilities, explains the process: “Phase One centred on two TV studios. These share a central control room which houses the RX2. Phase Two encompassed nine video edit suites and a stand-alone setup for the edit room in Venlo. Each edit suite includes a DHD TX console. The edit room in Venlo has a DHD TX console and XS2 I/O core. L1 has a dedicated fibre connection between Maastricht and Venlo so we were able to integrate the Venlo setup into the Maastricht network, including Dante IP audio

Hartsuiker agreed: “Phase Three comprised two radio voice/edit booths. These are located just beside the journalists so the newsreader can contribute without entering the studio. Each booth is equipped with a DHD TX console and can be used for voiceovers or audio editing. Phase Four includes two radio studios use an SX2 console and a TX at the sidekick position. The podcast studio can either be used for recording podcasts or, at one press of a button, operates as a voice booth for one of the radio studios. The journalists’ prep room also houses the visual radio controls. A TX console is incorporated for audio routing and to operate as small mixer.”

“This new installation demonstrates very effectively the ease with which our products integrate into IP-connected multi-site television and radio broadcast systems,” adds DHD Audio International Sales Manager Christoph Gottert.
