The Solidyne D816 On-Air console is a landmark in technology for new radio studios with low budgets. The D816 is the Digital Radio console with the lowest cost in the International market, offering digital USB In/outs and balanced analog in/outs that cover all the needs for the small to medium size radio stations. Production and News studios at large broadcasting stations will find the D816 an excellent solution. All faders are VCA controlled. It includes 3 telephone Hybrids; two for land lines and one for cellular phone.
All three hybrid channels are able to work in conference, including the cellular phone.
The console has independent stereo outputs for AIR and Recordings.
This way you can carry out simultaneous tasks at the same time.
Four electronic VU-meters of comfortable reading indicate the levels of both outputs.
The connection of USB ports can be made in one or two computers. The visual indicator informs that the computer has recognized the console. If it indicates C4 there are 4 digital channels. Showing C8 it indicates 8 channels (2 stereo in PLAY and 2 stereo in REC). It has a VU-meter that indicates the microphone compression level, which allows you to have the same sound level for all speaker’s voices.
Unlike other consoles, the D816 uses indirect control in all the audio channels. That is; the faders do not handle audio, but DC that commands a stereo amplifier of variable gain. The ETM-VCA technology and the use of the new Conductive Ceramic faders gives your radio 15 years of free maintenance operation and eliminates the noise caused by wearing down, even at the end of its life.
All condenser microphones can be used with the D816, since it incorporates a 48 volts switching phantom power supply.
Twin MIC preamplifier
MIC preamplifiers were designed for supporting two parallel MIC’s of the same model controlled from one fader. Then, the console can manage up to 6 microphones controlled from 3 faders. Internal audio compressors allows the console to have the same audio level in all Mic’s.
The D816 console is also unique by its dimensions. Electronic components of advanced technology allow us to produce one of the lowest profile consoles in the market (approximatrely 15mm high). This feature avoids the need for cutting the operation desk for a comfortable operator’s position.
In fact, any desktop becomes in few minutes, a powerful Radio Studio.
This allows transmitting radio programs from the journalist’s house, using the links that Solidyne offers (Audicom Multicast with Internet link)
Using the Solidyne D816 console you get a full digital Radio Studio for Pod casting
At a low price you get a complete Digital Radio Studio for Internet radio or for your low power AM or FM station. From the automation software on the PC (we recommend Solidyne’s own Audicom or OtsAV Radio Broadcaster), the digital audio signal goes direct to the D816 console. It is mixed with microphones and telephone lines. It is thens processed with the Audimax 362 or similar audio processor and finally returns, using digital format to the PC to generate the Internet audio streaming.
There is no better valued low cost digital console on the market with so many features and benefits.
