DHD Audio highlighted several uses of its technology in 2020. The company said it saw “an accelerating transition to IP technology throughout the broadcast audio business sector” this year.
It participated with Thum + Mahr in the integration of a DHD Audio platform into the new Cardiff headquarters of BBC Cymru Wales, and said the system is being used across the radio division. “The DHD environment comprises four independent audio clusters, serving as an adaptable infrastructure. Every area of the studio is able to broadcast autonomously.”
It said Radio Cottbus in Germany relocated to digital studios in August after 18 years at its former site. It is now one of Germany’s most modern media centers. The main control console is equipped with three DHD SX2 fader modules; audio signals are transmitted via Dante Audio over IP.
French language public broadcaster RTBF opened new studios in January at its regional center in Mons; the radio infrastructure is based on a DHD XC2 platform.
VRT regional channel Radio 2 Antwerpen inaugurated studios based on a modular structure in an open office environment, with a DHD 52/XC2 core serving the main on-air studio. And it said Studio Hamburg MCI chose DHD mixing consoles for Germany public radio station NDR Kultur.
DHD also announced a firmware update for broadcast audio mixing consoles, routers and control interfaces. “The latest firmware additions expand the capabilities of version 9.1 which we announced in Q1,” said International Sales Manager Christoph Gottert.
“That update included support for Unicode character sets such as Chinese, Russian, Japanese and Korean, Snapshots app and Labels app, enhanced log-in, hot configuration and refinements to the DHD REST API. We have now introduced two additional web apps — the Assist app and System app — plus an advanced SNMP interface.”
