South African community radio station Bosveld Stereo, which broadcasts in Afrikaans across the North West Province, is the first station in South Africa to deploy Calrec’s IP-based Type R for Radio. Broadcaster used Type R’s modular approach to create the ideal system for own needs: a Type R for Radio core plus two hardware fader panels and one large soft panel. The system can be accessed remotely, which is crucial in today’s Covid-19 environment. Using AoIP (Dante), the audio is transported to the transmitter.
Graat Pelser, Chairperson at Bosveld Stereo says, “Our existing studio mixers were reaching end-of-life and we wanted to take the opportunity to upgrade and move into an IP future: Type R was the answer. We have found it very easy to adapt to and the configurability is a great help. We use it on a daily basis and we know that it’s easily expandable if required.”
Graham Murray, International Sales Manager, Calrec, said, “We’re very pleased to see the first sale of our Type R for Radio technology in South Africa. We know that the overall broadcast market in the country is rapidly moving to IP. Type R for Radio has been designed to allow radio stations of all sizes to capitalise on IP’s inherent flexibility.”
