Club FM goes live with TSL Products
UAE: Dubai-based Malayalam language radio channel, Club FM, has gone on air thanks to equipment from TSL Products. Systems integrator, RGB Broadcasting, selected the manufacturer’s AMU1-BAS L audio monitor and MDU14-B-32A power unit as a technological solution to enable the production of Dubai’s first adaptive Radio Data System (RDS) station.
‘We wanted to install the latest high quality technology that would create efficiencies across the workflow,’ stated Shiju George, director of sales at RGB Broadcasting. ‘TSL Products’ combination of audio monitoring technology and mains distribution units is an ideal solution to enhance workflows, enabling the production team to focus on creating compelling radio shows.’
The 1U AMU1-BAS L offers six stereo analogue inputs, dual 106 segment bargraphs, internal stereo loudspeakers and internal PSU. The monitor has loudness indication as well as headphone outputs with LS muting. The MDU14-B-32A is a 32A mains distributor with 14 way fused IEC outlets and a cable tie bar. The unit has green LED power indicators and is also supplied with PowerCon input connectors, reportedly allowing RGB Broadcasting to manage basic power and measure voltage for Club FM in a cost-efficient way.
‘We are pleased that RGB Broadcasting selected TSL Products solutions for this installation,’ said Swarup Mukherjee, regional sales manager for TSL Products. ‘The audio monitors and the power units are such simple systems but they make production workflows more efficient and precise. Both systems have earned the confidence of the users and we are certain that they will prove their worth on this project.’
Away from the TSL equipment, the radio station has also been equipped with Electro-Voice RE27N/D microphones, Genelec monitors and Apart CD players. Control is via Wheatstone’s LX24 console with the manufacturer’s IP-88E Blade-3 engine. Rounding off the equipment list are Deva Broadcast DB3010 radio and IP confidence monitoring receivers and a Behringer HA4700 4-channel headphone mixing and distribution amplifier.
