South Africa’s Radio Rosestad embraces IP with Calrec’s Type R console
South African community radio station Radio Rosestad 100.6 FM in Bloemfontein is the latest community radio station in the country to take advantage of Calrec’s Type R for Radio console. This was achieved with the help of pro audio systems integrator Creative Kilowat Productions and Calrec’s South African distributor, Wild & Marr. The station now has a six-fader Type R console with one large soft panel (LSP), plus a small soft panel (SSP) for exclusive use by guests.
Bernie Naude, General Manager at Radio Rosestad, said, “South Africa is a very diverse country with 11 languages spoken and many communities in one area. The community radio concept recognises that they all have specific needs to address. When we identified that we needed to switch to an IP infrastructure, our systems integrator introduced us to the Calrec Type R for Radio. We were impressed by the technology and the Type R is such an easy-to-use system.
