DirectOut Technologies Adopted by Three D and Others

DirectOut is having their on-air technology widely adopted by broadcasters around the country. The Three D Adelaide community radio station is the latest to adopt the DirectOut technology.

Moving into new purpose-built premises, it was time to upgrade the On-Air technology in line with the new studios. Chaired by the independent technologist Glen Donhardt, the technical committee of Three D Radio, assessed various broadcast technologies supported in Australia.


The decision to procure LAWO’s crystal technology, was based on functionality, support and Three D’s budget. The Three D technical committee recommended twelve-fader crystal consoles in the two main On-Air Studios and a crystal frame in the MCR.


During a three day commissioning and training session at Professional Audio Technology’s training facility in Hornsby NSW, Mark Farley, David Corkill and Ian Moore from Three D Radio undertook in-depth customer training before the system was dispatched to Adelaide.


Three D Radio’s Robert Ayliffe commented on the new purchase, “We have used our move as an opportunity to future proof, as far as practically possible, our station. The LAWO equipment was chosen after a lot of research as being the most suited to meet our needs now and into the future.” Three D Radio is planning to be on air with the new system by September this year.


MD of Professional Audio Technology – Patrick Salloch commented “…as the LAWO user community is rapidly expanding in Australia, I am delighted to see that Australian broadcasters embrace this outstanding German technology and take full advantage of its capabilities. I am sure that Three D Radio will set new technology standards for community broadcasters in South Australia and we are looking forward to working with Three D for years to come.”
