Radio Broadgreen is housed in a detached building on the grounds of Broadgreen Hospital site.
It houses a staff room, kitchen and an area ready for conversion for an “easy access” studio (studio 4). There are two studios and a production suite are on the second floor.
Studio 1 consists of an Alice Air2000 desk with Myriad Playout system. There is also a production PC with editing software and access for Cleanfeed and ipDTL. The PC can also be used for studio emails and internet access.
Dual CD players and a minidisk are also available. A Comrex POTS unit and telephone hybrid are also connected to the desk.
Studio 2 consists of a Sonifex S2 desk with Myriad Playout system. There is also a production PC with editing software and access for Cleanfeed and ipDTL. The PC can also be used for studio emails and internet access.
Dual CD players with fader start and a minidisk are also available. A Comrex POTS unit and telephone hybrid are also connected to the desk
Studio 2 currently houses our “MCR” rack.
Studio 3 used to be our record library but now consists of equipment for dubbing and production including a Revox reel-reel, Sonifex cart machines, mini-disk, cassette and a record deck so audio can be converted to digital.
MCR rack consists of compressor/limiters and distribution amps. It also has a BW DSP-X audio processor in the transmission chain.
There is a NAS server as well as servers for logging, IRN capture and streaming. Networking is via Cisco switches.
Our audio output is logged for 42 days and periodically monitored to ensure a quality product is broadcast from our studios to the Broadgreen Health Park, other hospitals we serve on Merseyside and online via our public streams.
