Services: 1200 AEQ DCS-10 commentary units.
EBU’s Switching Center in Beijing includes AEQ’s Impact, Course, and BC 2000 D equipment. RNE’s engineer Javier Ferreras is operating the equipment.
It is a well known in the broadcast industry that AEQ has been, and continues to be, a key player in the world’s Olympic Games. Once again, AEQ played a significant
role as the supplier of commentator audio equipment to this year’s Olympic games.
Since the Nagano Games in 1998, commentators at the various competitive venues have used AEQ’s DCS 10 Digital Commentator consoles, giving them the ability to
accommodate three reporters plus a guest.
Since the Sidney Games in 2000, AEQ’s Ranger Multiplexers were used to broadcast program and coordination information (and the returns) to the International
frames, patch panels, audio distribution amplifiers, intercoms, line identifiers, monitors, audio quality monitors, just to mention a few.
Some of the Olympic broadcasters who used AEQ equipment were: TV AZTECA and TELEVISA (Mexico); Radio Caracol (Colombia); ENTV (Algeria); RTRRA (Russia),
ROR (Romania), SABC (South Africa), RTVE (Spain), France 2; Globo (Brazil) and NHK (Japan).
