Smiles all round for Stagetec Asia’s broadcast installation – Pro AVL Asia

TAIWAN: Micro Smile Broadcasting Network recently upgraded its broadcast facility, turning to Stagetec Asia and its local systems integration partner, Tiyu, to support the transition. Based in the southern Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung and led by founder, broadcaster and chairman, Ishikawa, the network is reportedly the island’s largest private radio station.

Stagetec Asia was commissioned to supply, install and commission a customised audio solution for the project. The hybrid upgrade includes a MADI fibre optic cabling infrastructure together with analogue and digital Dante-over-IP connections and DHD Audio’s 20-fader MX20 control surface, which was selected for its versatility of use in the main control room. “The convenient location of the TFT touchscreen provides detailed information to set up and regulate signal levels,” explained Stagetec Asia’ managing director, Advon Tan. “To provide an overall operational perspective, a flexible and controllable GUI is essential.”

DHD Audio’s 16-channel SX2 mixer was implemented in the multiple on-air and recording studios due to its motorised faders, triple 10.1-inch multi-touch displays, monitoring display and talkback features. The GUI touchscreen has also been customised to meet the requirements of the operations team, to enhance operational response speeds. “The operators requested more varied and higher-quality content,” noted Tan. “I believe that the design of the GUI interface has contributed to the unrivalled listening experience in addition to more seamless transitioning between on-air programmes.”

Stagetec Asia designed the main recording studio, which features a Stagetec 24-fader Auratus Platinum console, together with a Nexus router to enhance the network’s operational capabilities and allow for ease of pairing with the studio’s Neumann microphones. The radio network’s audio supervisor, Mr Steven, noted that him and his team were particularly satisfied with the consoles integrated features, including the XCMC audio processor, user-friendly interface and the connection to the Nexus audio network.

“As an independent radio station, we invested a great amount of time researching best in class technology and service within a specified budget,” commented Steven. “Stagetec Asia’s dedicated marketing and technical professionals assured us that our requirements would be properly addressed. They exceeded our expectations in terms of system and equipment contributions, as well as providing solutions compatible with our current working environment.”
