Radio IKIM Upgrades Studio Headquarters

Who's Buying What: The Islamic radio station switches to a DHD SX2 mixing console

From our Who’s Buying What page: Radio IKIM celebrates its 21st anniversary with an upgrade to its studio headquarters based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Upgrades were made to the station’s master control room and two live-to-air studios, connected via a DHD XC2 DSP core. Installation and commissioning were coordinated by DHD‘s Malaysia distribution partner Stagetec Asia. The details were announced in a DHD press release

Encik Shazril Sopian, IKIM engineering team leader and the head of the upgrade project, said there was a need to modernize the station’s production infrastructure as their previous system was becoming outdated.

DHD quoted him highlighting the DHD SX2 mixing console for its space efficiency and ease of integrating with third-party equipment. He said the console’s touch screens are particularly useful during live mixing.

Designed for radio and other broadcast applications, the DHD SX2 is is based on a central module with four faders plus a control section including monitoring and talkback. Central and fader modules each incorporate a 10.1 inch multi-touch display showing relevant configuration and operating parameters.

General Director of Stagetec Asia Advon Tan said, “Linked to the DHD audio system is IKIM Radio’s Dante Audio over Internet facility which is managed from the master control room. Dante coding is used on the primary transmission path and AES3 on the secondary path, fully switchable.”
