Quincy, IL (July 20, 2009)–Grant Broadcasters Pty Ltd in Tasmania, Australia has ordered 10 Broadcast Electronics AudioVAULT studio systems for its radio station network.
With this order, Grant Broadcasters, one of the largest privately owned radio networks in Australia, standardizes on AudioVAULT group-wide. “We have been successfully using AudioVAULT systems in our group since 1995, and have progressively converted all but eight of our 28 wholly owned stations to AudioVAULT. This latest investment will see every station, except one, running AudioVAULT,” said John Sandles, group engineering manager, Grant Broadcasters.
The group’s seven stations in Northern Tasmania will seamlessly integrate into Grant Broadcasters’ group-wide AudioVAULT network, allowing operational efficiencies and increased program quality in locally generated content and talent sharing between stations far beyond current capability.
BE’s AudioVAULT is a complete digital media system for live-assist or automated operation, including multi-track editing, centralized music library management, remote voicetracking, and multi-location workgroup collaboration.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to bring all these tools and studio capabilities to Grant,” said Frank Massa, Asia Pacific sales manager for Broadcast Electronics, which will show its AudioVAULT studio system and transmitter lines at booth D42 during the SMPTE Exhibition & Convention at the Sydney Exhibition Centre, July 21-24, 2009.
The AudioVAULT systems are being supplied to Grant Broadcasters by Peter Warren of Lumina Broadcast Systems Australia Pty Ltd, which represents BE’s studio and RF product lines in Australia.
