St. Louis - Aug 13, 2001 - RDA Systems recently signed an agreement with Broadcast Electronics to provide systems pre-wire services for 37 radio station sites being shipped to the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Each site contains an air studio, production studio, and program input equipment rack. The first sites have already been prepared for delivery.
RDA's responsibilities include implementing a studio wiring and documentation scheme that facilitates the simplest possible installation in Nigeria by Northgate. This process includes pre-wiring studios to Audioarts D-70 consoles, and pre-making of all between room infrastructural wiring. The systems are being designed to perform in field conditions much more adverse to those found in the United States.
For this purpose, RDA and Broadcast Electronics agreed on the extensive use of XLR connectors, in lieu of traditional punchblocks. The wiring system can be easily inserted into the StudioVantage furniture being provided by Drieselman Manufacturing company. In addition, RDA is providing special power distribution strips for the 220V, single phase electrical environment in Nigeria.
Since 1994, RDA Systems, Inc. has provided consulting and studio installation services to radio, television and cable as well as performed radio consolidation and upgrade projects of all sizes around the United States. RDA clients, to name a few, have included CBS Radio, Clear Channel Communications, Waitt Radio, Hispanic Broadcasting, Journal Broadcast Group and Entercom.
