Northridge, CA (June 20, 2011)–Italian regional Adult Contemporary music station Radio Toscana has taken delivery of a second Harman Studer OnAir 2500 digital console.
The order for the desk was placed with Leading Technologies SRL (formerly A&DT/APG), who has worked closely with the Florence-based station over the past decade.
The network, which already boasts Soundcraft RM105 and Series 15 desks, carried out a studio upgrade in 2009 with the conversion to complete digital transmission carried out by studio concept specialists, Acoustic Design. As part of that fit-out, Radio Toscana purchased its first OnAir 2500, but with the recent building of a second dedicated room, an additional 12-fader OnAir 2500 was installed.
Signal feeds are brought into Radio Toscana by Sonifex digital telephone hybrid, supported by Mayah ISDN, IP, UMTS protocol codec for external live transmission.
The latest OnAir 2500 will be used for recording and post production while doubling as a back-up desk, and if necessary, it will be used for other broadcast transmission. Leading Technologies will provide full technical support for the consoles.
