Eldos FM Transitions To AoIP With Calrec’s Type R For Radio

Community radio broadcaster Eldos FM in Johannesburg, South Africa, is the latest broadcaster to take advantage of the benefits of IP with Calrec’s Type R for radio console.

The station, which launched in 2008 and has 60,000 listeners and growing, now has one Type R console with 6-fader panels and a large soft panel in each of its two new studios.

Both of the station’s Type R cores have the ability to handle 8 x 6-fader panels which gives them a total of 48 physical faders, and with the fader panels being dual layer, the station has access to 96 channels at the push of a button.

“IP in the broadcast environment is becoming more widespread in South Africa as evidenced by this latest deal with Eldos FM. We’re so excited that Type R is quickly becoming the go-to IP console in the region, with its rich feature set, minimal cabling and its simple touchscreen interface,” commented Graham Murray, International Sales Manager, Calrec.
