Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ)


Rutger’s WRSU had a custom vision in mind for a recent studio renovation. An ergonomic feel for student announcers and DJ’s, alongside an equipment presentation that shows pride in the representation of the student body. A robust 24 fader SAS iSL console was chosen as the primary on air surface. A backup studio with a mirroring 24 fader iSL and additional production facilities with a mixture of modular Ruby-T mini consoles were chosen for phase one of the build out. Dante AoIP /AES67 is used throughout the station in both Bravo! audio engines and the CORE64 router in the TOC. All configuration was achieved using SAS’ easy to access HTML GUI on each engine. The student staff were insistent on the incorporation of the school’s Scarlet color and SAS delivered with a custom matched, Scarlet colored console.
