AEQ ALIO PROVIDES QUALITY REMOTES FOR CANDELARIA RADIO 12/01/2016
Local radio station “Candelaria Radio” is located in the municipality with the same name on the Canary Island of Tenerife, Spain. Naturally, and as a local station, Candelaria Radio is focusing on being in close contact with the city, its people and reality. The musical offering is very ample and the station is betting really hard on providing local news, current affairs and information.
Eventhough we are a small radio station, at Candelaria Radio we always have bet on state-of-the art technologies that simplifies our work flow and at the same time allow us to work from new and different locations.
From a technical point of view, AEQ’s new portable IP audiocodec, Phoenix ALIO is a piece of equipment full of resources, offering close to infinite opportunities. As usual with AEQ’s solutions, the Phoenix ALIO is very easy to use.
The Phoenix ALIO seems to have been designed and manufactured to easily adapt to different scenarios, including contribution/transmission of music. Its elegant and compact design is resistant to dents and even liquids and is optimized for outside use where handling may not always as careful as one would wish.
AEQ Phoenix ALIO can connect to most third party equipment using SIP communication protocol according to the N/ACIP Tech 3326 EBU recommendation. However, when connecting to another AEQ codec the user can take advantage of an exclusive set of tools that makes the setting- of a communication and the control of the unit a really simple task. Thanks to the PhoenixControl software that comes with the unit, even a small radio station like us has access to really top-notch tools and solutions.
On top of all this, the Phoenix ALIO offers a wide choice of encoding algorithms such as for example OPUS that guarantees great quality of audio with a minimum latency even in outside broadcasts where the communication networks sometimes can be quite difficult.
Summarizing, in our opinion, the AEQ Phoenix ALIO offers more than acceptable audio quality in combination with very simple set-up and configuration. Also, being such a small and compact unit, the transport becomes no issue at all. Generally speaking, this is a piece of equipment that will allow you to achieve according to expectations in any broadcast project taking place outside the radio studio and thanks to the immediateness of IP connectivity.
