ESPN Radio has a new studio home in Building 2 at its headquarters in Bristol, Conn. The sports broadcaster issued a press release touting its "digitally enhanced, monitor-laden glass-enclosed enclave." The chief engineer is Tom Evans.
"Wire count was intentionally reduced to a minimum by the use of multiplexing and fiber optics," he stated. "These studios also include more than 2,000 audio router crosspoints, 32 broadcast audio workstations at 1gigabit/sec, with more at lower network speeds, as well as more than eight terabytes of audio storage."
The radio studios eventually will be networked with those of ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNEWS, making it possible for radio and TV staff to exchange audio.
ESPN Radio launched in 1992 and now has about 700 affiliates.
