Malaysia’s public broadcaster Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) has installed six Calrec Type R radio consoles at its regional station, PerlisFM, located in the northern Perlis state of the country. With the studio upgrade and move to an IP audio environment, RTM says the facility will serve as reference for all of its future upgrades to other regional stations.
Specifically, RTM has fitted PerlisFM with a complete radio system, including a full IP network and visual radio technology, which supports video streaming to social media and other online platforms.
Calrec explains that its native IP Type R consoles are located in PerlisFM’s main Conty, Standby Conty, Edit (1 and 2), Ingest, News Depot Studios and Master Control Room respectively. At the main Conty Studio, the Type R console integrates with RCS Zetta radio automation software and multiCAM system’s visual radio system that uses three PTZ cameras.
“Calrec’s Type R for Radio is perfect for this installation. Perhaps the biggest challenge that we faced during the setup was adhering to strict Covid 19 rules. We knew that any infection at all could have meant shutting down the facility for sanitization plus quarantining all personnel and that had to be avoided at all costs. We believe this IP installation points to the future of radio across Malaysia and beyond“ said David Chan, Director
