After International Sports Broadcaster was appointed as host broadcaster for the first European Games held in Baku, Azerbaijan, the company turned to AEQ to help provide equipment to cover the multisport competition on radio, television and the Internet.
AEQ provided equipment, which included Capitol digital audio mixing consoles, Phoenix Venus and Phoenix Mobile communication systems, the DCS-10 commentary system and KROMA broadcast monitors.
According to the Spanish firm, nearly all systems used in the technical operation centers for the transport and control of multi- and unilateral signals generated at the venues were equipped with KROMA 3G broadcast monitors ranging from 9–18.5 inches.
AEQ says it also supplied 36 units of Phoenix Venus dual-channel IP audio codecs to create circuits for technical coordination between the venues and production control at IBC, and that another five units transported the program signal generated in mixed zones of the venues. The portable IP audio codec, Phoenix Mobile, was then used as the commentary unit for each venue, it added.
The 2015 European Games took place from June 12–28 and covered 253 events held in 15 different stadiums.
