Star Radio Group upgrades monitoring software
MALAYSIA: Star Radio Group has made an upgrade to audio monitoring in its master control room with the installation of Stagetec Asia’s XGUI-MultiMeter software. The manufacturer’s R&D team developed the software as an extension of its XGUI modular software to provide touchscreen control for the Nexus digital audio routing and network system and to enable users to select and monitor multiple signals from a single view.
Broadcasting four radio stations, Suria FM and 988 FM in Malay and Chinese respectively, with Red FM and Capital FM both serving the English speaking population, operators at Star Radio Group are now able to monitor up 60 stereo meters simultaneously across all four stations. Level meters can be configured as either inputs or outputs based on the requirements of a particular workflow and the system also features an alarm system to detect signal failure.
‘XGUI-MultiMeter is a real advantage to Nexus users as it combine Nexus Logic and XGUI function,’ said XGUI developer Yap Wei Keong. ‘We are able to help the customer to improve their system workflow and more automated tasks can be designed to simplify the workflow and reduce errors.’
Following the upgrade, Star Radio Group staff are reportedly impressed, with the broadcaster’s technical officer, Anuar Khan, commenting that: ‘Our technical team is really happy with the XGUI implementation and we look forward in using XGUI for many years ahead’.
