The SR2 Digital School Radio Package

The SR2 Digital offers a compact radio studio bristling with advanced features and cutting edge digital technology.

The package is built around the AEQ Capitol IP Digital mixing console. The mixer features eight faders that can be assigned to any physical or AoIP source. You can setup up to six 'snap shots' to make switching between assignments as simple as a single button press. The console also has 20 'user buttons' that can be programmed to perform actions such as switching modes, changing routing, loading 'snap shots' or triggering Favourites in Myriad 5 Playout. The Capitol IP also offers independently controlled 'studio' and 'control room' outputs for speakers and headphones as well as 'talkback' to studio headphones.  

The separate mix engine (2u unit mounted under the desktop) boasts a range of audio and data I/O options as well as two assignable output busses per fader. Microphone faders can also use built on dynamic processing and EQ.  The SR2 Digital includes a 16 Channel Dante AoIP module (for the Capitol) to allow you to connect to any other Dante compatible equipment or studios. You also have the option to add a dual telephone hybrid module for phone connectivity for a small additional charge. 

The package also includes a full Myriad Studio Playout software license alongside a mini playout PC and dual 24" screens. The Myriad system plays audio directly into the mixer via Dante preserving digital audio quality and reducing the need for physical audio wiring. You also get Myriad Schedule Standard giving you everything you need to launch a radio station. 

All this is mounted in stylish and modern studio furniture with three presenter positions along with a central 'mic live' tower light. 

Finally, you get a years free streaming & web player plus 12 months technical support included in the package.
