Lynnwood, WA - Aug 16, 2001 - With the consolidation of six radio stations into one building and the nation's first installation of a Computer Concepts EpiCenter multi-studio management system, Cox Radio in Orlando origniated its signal chain with two dozen Symetrix 628 Digital Voice Processors and feeds the announcers headphones with eight Symetrix 506E six-channel headphone amplifiers.
After two years of first-hand experience with the 628, Steve Fluker, director of engineering knew that they would provide the ideal front-end for the new studios. The installation included the optional remote program controller (R-1) set up with the announcers' names assigned to their particular program. During a shift change, the announcers select the appropriate program. Each 628 is programmed with the same settings so the presets can be recalled anywhere within the facility.
With six control rooms, seven production rooms, two news booths, and a mix booth all tied together by EpiCenter, Cox Radio Orlando represents the cutting-edge in radio technology.
