imgChico, CA (April 17, 2014)—KCHO-FM is using Denon Professional’s DN-700R network SD/USB audio recorders to archive on-air material, organize playlists across its network and play back audio files from the station's studios.

With more than 600,000 Northern California listeners, Northstate Public Radio provides an audience with a range of programs. A non-commercial non-profit station provided by California State University, Chico, the organization's KCHO FM 91.7 required a solution that would record and deliver audio from multiple sources into an organized file structure for on-air playback without resorting to removable media storage. By selecting 12 DN-700R network SD/USB audio recorders, KCHO was able to streamline its on-air workflow, allowing operators to create audio playlists efficiently, per the station's daily log, before uploading content into KCHO's playback software.

"Denon Professional's DN-700R audio recorders greatly simplify the material collection process for our station's programs," said Jim Moore, engineer, Northstate Public Radio. "Using the devices' scheduled recording and audio file archiving capabilities, our users are easily able to convert content into continuous audio files for archiving onto the station's network. As a result, operators can quickly build playlists directly onto KCHO's on-air studio PCs and schedule programming playback according to the station's daily log—creating a workflow which archives programming like any other audio file without the need to record and edit segments via removable media."
