Solidyne has now a team of 50 people working in our company. The secret of the Solidyne's success at the radio market and professional audio field, is very simple: Our obsession by Research and permanent Innovation.
Throughout these years, Solidyne has made more than 10.000 broadcast audio consoles, that add an accumulated on-air time greater than 30.000 years. No other world manufacturer can offer a so convincing guarantee of reliability !
Solidyne is now the world oldest manufacturer of broadcasting consoles.
Also, Solidyne has manufactured and installed the biggest audio system in Latin America: The satellite broadcasting network used for transmitting the FIFA World Cup in 1978.
Solidyne had manufactured open reel magnetic tape recorders, using dynamic bias and self-aligned by computer, PBX telephonic centrals and user telephones, communications between energy networks, Communications centers for the Argentina Air Force, Army, Gendarmerie, etc.
From 1980 we are working in the field of the 24 hours Voice Loggers, and we were one of the few international companies manufacturing multi-channel magnetic tape recorders (Medical Emergencies, Electrical Companies, Ambulances, etc).
From 2004 up to the present, we manufacture AR-200 Digital Voice Loggers with state of the art technology: digital encrypted recording on Hard Disk; another one of the inventions of Solidyne. This small size 16, 24 & 32 channels recorders have open architecture, high reliability and low cost.
