SANTIAGO, Chile — Radio Corporación is one of the most popular Chilean radio stations. With two licensed frequencies and a very rich programming mix consisting of general information, music, talk, entertainment for all age groups and local news, traffic and information.

The technical managers of Radio Corporación, decided to renew the core infrastructure in Santiago. The entire project is being overseen by the chief engineer of Radio Corporación, Francisco Campos, in collaboration with the team from SERCOMSA, AEQ’s local partner in Chile, and AEQ’s technical office in Madrid.

Radio Corporación’s currently installed equipment is mostly analog but the company’s objective is to transition completely to digital. As a first step in this transition, Radio Corporación has refurbished one of its studios with an AEQ Forum digital audio mixing console. The board at the core of the studio control system is a compact 12-fader version.

The AEQ Forum is a mixing console designed to control on-air broadcasts. Therefore it has all the features required for this duty: automatic monitor mute, cough mute, fader-start, signaling control, controllers to automate peripheral equipment, fully integrated digital telephone hybrids facilitating the call-in management, intercom, etc.

The Forum has a reduced footprint and uses input and output modules so it becomes a reliable fit for any imaginable scenario: autocontrol, studio control, audio control in television, general audio production, mixed configurations and integration in large installations. Simplicity and control are features that are combined in AEQ Forum and the console can cover anything from the most basic operational requirements to the most advanced ones. The console is available in versions of four, eight or 12 faders in its standard version but when more fader channels are required this can be satisfied with the Grand Forum Chassis, making possible configurations of up to 20 faders.

AEQ Forum also offers the option of using both analog and digital signals. The board can utilize AoIP multichannel connectivity using Audinate Dante technology and is compatible with AES67. This connectivity makes it easy for Radio Corporación to integrate a studio with, for example, its already existing IT infrastructure. AEQ Forum handles 32 or 64 channels in these formats and satisfies Radio Corporación’s requirements to be able to easily integrate future equipment as this transition continues.
