AEQ powers RTS upgrade in Senegal


Senegal's public broadcasting company, known in French as Radiodiffusion Télévision Sénégalaise (RTS), is the state-owned company that controls the country's national radio and television channels. The technical management of RTS recently decided to renovate the company's central radio studios in Dakar, and AEQ technology was chosen to equip the heart of the new installation.

RTS was founded in 1932. After many political changes, the radio section was established in 1950 and the television service in 1965. RTS currently produces two television channels and several national and regional radio channels, all available via RF, satellite and online.

Belgian integrator Studiotech was called on for the latest upgrade and has installed AEQ FORUM-IP digital audio consoles in the central radio studios and the AEQ BC2000D router in the station's central control room.

The GRAND FORUM-IP is a mixing console designed specifically for on-air broadcast control, and incorporates all the basic features necessary in this type of environment: automatic monitor cut, cough cut, faderstart, signalling control, control signals for the automation of external equipment, external communications management and intercommunication. In the RTS central control room, the AEQ BC-2000D matrix manages all the signals available in the installation. The basis of the BC-2000D router digital audio system is the dual TDM bus, hosted in the BC-2000 DF chassis, which is capable of routing, mixing or distributing more than 1,000 channels simultaneously. The TDM bus is divided into an input bus and an output bus with the possibility of inserting DSP cards, achieving a high throughput of DSP processing capability.

The system can be decentralised by using MADI or AoIP Dante links as interconnection between multiple sub-racks. Moreover, equipment with Dante or AES67 connectivity can be connected directly to the Dante/AES67 cards located in the main frame or any sub-rack.

Analogue and digital inputs and outputs can be combined according to current and future needs. All digital inputs and outputs are transformer-isolated and an option is provided for when transformer isolation is required on the analogue inputs and outputs. Options for microphone, AoIP, SDI, headphone and GPI/O inputs are also available.
