Epsom Hospital Radio has two studios and a production office. Here is a brief explaination of them both.
The Green studio was the first two be completed at the end of March 2015, it features a Soundcraft Series 10 broadcast mixer, two CD players, a mini disc player, a turntable and the stations computer playout system.
There are two local microphones, the studio can also control the microphones on the interview table in the production office.
There is also a broadcast, and monitor feed of the Blue Studio, the 24 hour feed, and a news feed, facilities for taking telephone calls live to air, and some pluggable inputs for connecting laptops, MP3 players and other audio sources.
The Green, and the Blue studio also feature Andy's special LED light signalling system, normally blue, changing to red when the mics are live, and flashing to green from either colour when the telephone rings.
The blue studio features exactly the same facilities as the Green studio, but uses an older Alice Soundtech series A mixing console, and also features a suspended microphone.
The TV monitors in the studio show camera feeds of the production office, the corridor outside the studios and a feed of the door to Rowan House so that we can see if anyone is waiting to come in.
They also feature live TV - usually tuned to a news channel, and a clock.
This features computers for producing material and editing audio, the one on the blue wall can be viewed, controlled, and played out on in the Blue studio, and the one on the Green wall, the same in the Green studio,
The interview table can be used from either studio too.
The station also has a Server room which stores all of the computers that playout music in the studios, and when we are off air, we also have a computer that records and stores all of our broadcast material for 45 days, and a clock that keeps all of the computers on time, and also feeds the clocks in the studios and production office.
