Radio Botswana Deploys Custom Consoles

They’re part of an upgrade project in Gaborone

From the Who’s Buying What page: Radio Botswana has installed 20 desks from Custom Consoles at the network’s studios in Gaborone, the capital. They are part of a facility integration by Dega Broadcast Systems.

State-owned Radio Botswana was created in 1965 and broadcasts news, education and entertainment content in the Setswana language.

John Cleaver, Dega Broadcast Systems director, said in a press release that the project included radio presentation control desks plus associated facilities to support additional program participants and studio guests.

“Many of the desks incorporate noise-reducing worktop surfaces and concealed ducts for audio, mains and related control cables,” he said. “Electrically powered height adjustability was specified in several instances, giving presenters the option of working seated or standing.”

Among the desks are a central control and production studio control room workstations, a hub desk, news studio control desk, an assignable control suite and a listening room console. Custom Consoles also produced an acoustically treated studio guest table.
