It is also home to the Bertelsmann Audio Alliance, RTL Audio Marketing, Digital Media Hub and RTL Radio Deutschland. The DHD Audio equipment was supplied, configured and installed by broadcast systems integrator audioone, also based in Berlin.
The DHD Audio RX2 sound mixer is based on control surface modules which can be combined and configured to match a wide range of radio and TV production environments. The design also scales from small mixing panels with 6 or 12 faders to large consoles with up to 60 faders. Each module has a dedicated touch display which gives operators the information they need to work quickly and confidently.
DHD's Series 52 TX is an ultra-compact tabletop touch-screen mixer optimised for daily operation in news desks, edit suites and satellite link vehicles. Measuring just 256 mm wide x 58 mm high and 272 mm front-to-back, it has a 10.1 inch IPS LCD monitor with capacitive touch-screen faders plus six hardware pushbuttons and two assignable potentiometers. Other features include an XLR microphone input, an XLR/6.3 mm jack combination headphone output, an integrated talkback microphone and a loudspeaker. The TX connects to the network via a single RJ45 port.
The XC2 Core provides the processing needed to drive DHD control consoles of up to 44 faders capacity. Supporting up to 3,716 x 3,076 digital audio switch points, it occupies half the width of a 19 inch 1U rack slot. Standard network cables and structured cabling can be used for the interconnection of DHD modules, dramatically reduce installation costs. Optional AoIP modules allow up to 128 channels of uncompressed bidirectional audio to interface with other AoIP-compatible devices via a standard Ethernet network. Monitoring, talkback and connection of remote facilities can all be performed via the network.
