South African Adventist World Radio equips main broadcast studio with AEQ technology

The station has equipped its studios with AEQ Capitol IP console as the heart of the system

Adventist World Radio AWR is a private radio station in South Africa under the Southern Africa-Indian Ocean Division (SID) with offices in Pretoria where all the actions of this church are coordinated. AWR offers a wide variety of programming, including religious programmes, news, information and local music, which are currently broadcast online only through its website

AWR has traditionally worked with analogue material, but the technical management of the station has decided to upgrade one of its studios with digital technology and have decided to use the AEQ CAPITOL IP console as the heart of the system. In the choice of such an important equipment, due to the characteristics of the installation and the operators, they were looking for an equipment that would offer the maximum audio quality with the latest digital technology available, but always guaranteeing a very user-friendly operation and especially working in a robust way given the big geographical isolation of the country.
