Sonifex SignalLED Signs Prove To Be A Star At Astral Media Radio
12th October 2009
Astral Media Radio GP is a division of Astral Media, a leading Canadian media company, specialising in television, radio, outdoor advertising and interactive media. It is also Canada’s largest radio broadcaster with 83 licensed radio stations in 8 provinces, including Énergie, RockDétente, Virgin Radio, EZ Rock and The Bear.
Larry King, Chief Engineer, is responsible for 23 radio stations, 24 repeaters and 2 TV stations in the British Columbia interior of Canada. Larry first saw the Sonifex SignalLED studio illuminated signs being demonstrated at WABE by Sonifex distributor Sonotechnique and as their radio station in Kelowna was in the process of being renovated, he decided to order 4 of the signs for their studios. He intends to purchase more for future projects.
Larry said: “The lights were the perfect finishing touch for our studios. They created lots of comments from guests and staff alike. I hadn’t previously shown any one what I had ordered, so it was a pleasant surprise to everyone.”
With ultra-modern stylish looks, the new SignalLED range of illuminated RGB LED signs are designed for use outside and inside studios, meeting rooms and conference rooms to give a dynamic status indication. Because the signs themselves contain the control electronics and the fact that RGB LEDs are used, the signs can be simply configured onsite for your particular requirements. Additionally, they only draw 3W of power making them an energy efficient lighting method.
The illuminating LEDs in the unit are RGB meaning that any colour can be produced. For ease of use, as standard you can configure the sign from one of 8 colours: white, green, red, blue, yellow, orange, cyan and magenta. The sign can be controlled by either, or both, of 2 pull-low inputs, e.g. a single input can be used to control a single ‘MIC LIVE’ sign, or 2 inputs can be used to control a twin ‘TX’ and ‘REH’ sign with independent control of each side of the sign.
Each sign is 40cm or 20cm long. The 40cm signs can be split into two 20cm sides which can be separately, or jointly controlled, e.g. you can have a 40cm ‘ON AIR’ sign, or twin 2 x 20cm signs, such as ‘ON AIR’ and ‘MIC LIVE.
The sign is supplied as standard so that it can be mounted flush to a wall, e.g. for the ‘REH’ & ‘TX’ sign shown. However, a mounting kit is available, LD-KE1, to mount the sign perpendicular to a wall.
Although a range of standard signs is supported, custom signs, for example with your company name or logo, can be produced for a nominal setup fee. Contact Sonifex with your requirements.
