    School Radio SRMv2 Broadcast Mixing Desk

    The SRMv2 is a nine channel broadcast mixing desk designed by us specifically for use in our School Radio packages. Rather than re-badging an existing broadcast mixer, we wanted to design a mixer that offered powerful features and a user friendly interface suitable for use in primary and secondary schools. Once we designed the way the mixer should look and act, we partnered with the UK's leading broadcast technology manufacturer (Sonifex) to exclusively produce SRM mixers which you will only find in our School Radio packages. Sonifex liked there SRM so much they now produce the S0 which is a close cousin but the S0 does not offer the same rich, interactive features that you will find on the SRM.

    • 9 Channel Dual Input Mixer (4 mic inputs, 13 stereo inputs)
    • Built in telephone & Skype interface for telephone interviews etc*
    • Intelligent interaction with Myriad software
    • Level limited headphone output
    • Designed by us exclusively for School Radio
    • Built by Sonifex Ltd at their state of the art, UK factory.

    * Requires analogue telephone line

    Fixed studio packages will be neatly installed and connected to your schools network via the provided network access point.

    If you have opted for a portable system then our engineers will show you how to setup the system and answer any questions you may have.

     

    Once the installation / setup is complete, our team member will spend 3-4 hours demonstrating how to use the system and answering all your questions. This training will mainly focus on the software elements although all aspects of your School Radio package will be covered.

    Depending on the School Radio package you have ordered and the distance we have travelled, our School Radio installations may be staggered over two days with the engineer staying locally overnight, but don't worry, you will not be charged extra if that is the case.
