Swiss firm Mandozzi Elettronica will be providing equipment for new radio broadcast studios in Frankfurt for German public broadcaster Hessischer Rundfunk.
Mandozzi will deliver a system that comprises a redundant IDEA audio matrix, which features two halves to be installed in two separate rooms for higher security. The system also encompasses four program complexes with four Serix mixers each. It is possible, noted the company to add a fifth program complex with four mixers.
The mixers, which are equipped with eight to 20 motorized faders, feature concentrators (I/O boxes) that are connected to the matrix via redundant optical fiber. Each of the redundant matrix halves boasts a routing capacity of 4,096 x 4,096 crosspoints.
Mandozzi notes that its system was of particular interest to Hessischer Rundfunk due to the advanced capabilities of the Serix mixers and the possibility to connect them to a central matrix architecture.
