Berlin, Germany (July 7, 2011)–South African commercial radio station OFM has installed Junger Audio’s D06 Level Magic processor.
Broadcasting 24 hours a day from its studios in Bloemfontein in the Free State Province, OFM is a lifestyle radio station that likes to connect with its audience through plenty of telephone interaction. But according to OFM’s technical manager, Jan Van Der Walt, “One of our biggest technical challenges was the poor quality of the telephone conversations we were broadcasting.”
In search of a solution, Van Der Walt visited South Africa’s Media Tech show and came across Junger Audio’s products via its South African distributor, Tru-Fi Electronics. “What I liked about the Junger Audio D06 unit was its ability to work only with level and not process the audio. It seemed to me that this might be the right option for us because I could use it to just correct the phone levels,” he says.
Van Der Walt arranged for a demo. “The results were way beyond anything I expected. I refused to allow Tru-Fi to take the unit out–I just bought the demo!”
