DHD SX2 And TX Consoles Go On Air At RTV Drenthe

RTV Drenthe, public broadcaster for the province of Drenthe in north-east Netherlands, has chosen DHD SX2 and TX audio mixing consoles for integration into newly upgraded facilities at the channel’s headquarters in Assen.

The consoles form part of a production modernisation project centred on the television production control room. RTV Drenthe content mainly comprises local and regional news, interviews, music and talk shows, broadcasting 24 hours of radio a day, visual radio, a repeated 30 minutes of television, broadcasting of events and webcasting.

DHD’s SX2 console is based on a four-fader central module. Integral display screens allow operators to see exactly how their console is performing both from connectivity and signal level perspectives. The central module gives access to the most important audio inputs and outputs. A microphone input and headphone output are included, and loudspeakers can be connected directly to this unit.  The consoles can be expanded by adding one or more modules with six motorised faders each. Central and fader modules each incorporate a 10.1 inch multi-touch display showing relevant configuration and operating parameters. Functions such as loudness metering and talkback to other DHD mixers are also supported.

DHD's TX mixers are ultra-compact tabletop touchscreen panels optimised for daily operation wherever space is at a premium. Typical applications include news desks, edit suites and communication link vehicles. Just 256 mm wide, 58 mm high and 272 mm front-to-back, the TX has a 10.1 inch display with capacitive touchscreen faders plus six hardware pushbuttons and two flexibly assignable potentiometers. Other features include an XLR microphone input, headphone output, integrated talkback microphone and a loudspeaker. A single network cable up to 100 metres in length connects the TX to a DHD IP Core or concentrator. The cable transmits all audio and control signals plus power.
