A top California radio station is putting hospital bed technology to work.
KGO Newstalk, an ABC Radio O&O and a leading San Francisco Bay Area station, selected Harris Corp. to provide studio equipment and systems for its first major broadcast facility renovation since the mid-1980s.
For its talk studios, KGO bought Harris AMX broadcast and production consoles from Pacific Research & Engineering, with 34 input modules.
KGO will use Harris custom furniture for its main talk studio, including hydraulic-activated workstations for up to 6 people. The workstations will have adjustable monitors and Corian surfaces that can be positioned to fit the talents' work needs, whether standing or sitting.
The hydraulic system is similar to that used in hospital beds.
An SAS routing system will allow the AMX analog consoles to accept digital inputs via conversion capabilities in the router. The new facility should be operational by early winter.
