Broadcasting the message across Turkey
TURKEY: Diyanet Radyo is a religious radio station based in Ankara’s Çankaya district that broadcasts across Turkey and streams online. Its shows include Kur'an Dostları (translating to: Friends of the Qur'an), which features discussion between those who have taken meaning from reading the Qur'an, Kur'an-ı Kerim Meali, during which verses of the Qur'an are read, and Din ve Hayat, which translates as Religion and Life. The station also produces programmes that explore health and books in Radio Hospital and Radio Library respectively.
When Diyanet Radyo required new audio mixer for three on-air studios and its recording and back-up facility, representatives from the station researched the options available and came across a solution installed at Turkey’s national broadcaster, TRT. The radio station would then turn to the systems integrator responsible for the installation at TRT, SF Ses ve Işık Sistemleri A.Ş.
The solution provided by SF comprises three Studer OnAir 2500 Modulo broadcast mixing consoles for the live studios and a Vista 5 M3 desk for the recording and back-up studio. The setup is interconnected via Madi in such a way that each console backs up the rest. Due to the continual nature of radio broadcast, the installation was completed in phases over the course of a year.
