InBlu2000 Upgrades With DHD DX2 Audio Production Consoles And TX Touchscreen Mixers

DHD audio reports the completion of a major update to the Rome-based production facilities of Italian radio and internet broadcast InBlu2000. Audio mixing systems from DHD have been integrated as part of a large scale studio renovation supervised by Milan-based broadcast technology specialist BVMedia.

The radio platform of the Italian Episcopal Conference, InBlu2000 transmits 24-hour programming throughout Italy via the EuroDAB multiplex. Its content is also accessible via the www.inblu2000.it website, Facebook, Instagram and X, plus a dedicated app. The programme schedule includes hourly radio news interspersed with light entertainment, commentary and in-depth content on social, cultural and religious themes. Particular attention is paid to religious, social, cultural and musical events.

The DHD DX2 is a compact desktop audio console designed for use wherever space is at a premium. It is based on a four-fader central module and six-fader expansion unit, both of which are designed to withstand round-the-clock operation. The maximum number of faders is determined by the capabilities of the connected core. Four faders plus a dedicated section for setup, monitoring and talkback are incorporated in the central module. The fader module has six professional grade 100 mm motorised faders with dust-protection. Each channel also incorporates two control buttons, a UTF8-supported channel identifier, adjustable gain settings, an input channel meter and programme/off-air selection. Each fader can support a second layer. Dedicated potentiometers are provided for headphone and loudspeaker levels.

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.
