Turkey Jockey’s Club bets on Allen & Heath
TURKEY: Turkey Jockey’s Club (TJK) is the country’s official horse breeding and racing organisation, founded and endorsed by the Ministry of Agriculture. TJK operates its own television channel and recently invested in a new audio system as part of its digital upgrade. The sound solution is designed around an Allen & Heath dLive system comprising an S7000 Surface with a DM48 MixRack.
The DM48 is equipped with a Dante network card and a pair of DX32 expander racks for AES inputs and outputs. In addition, two GLD-80 mixers were installed with AB168 racks in TJK’s smaller studios. These are also Dante enabled to allow integration with the main audio system.
‘We really needed to upgrade our current analogue mixing desk to improve total system latency, network audio options and expandable I/O options,’ recalled Nizamettin Korkmaz, sound director at TJK. ‘All the station’s sound engineers are very comfortable using the Allen & Heath mixers during live broadcasts and for daily recordings, such as talk shows. The complicated audio routing and monitoring requirements of the studios are easily handled by the systems.’
