ArtSound Engineering and Development Manager wins prestigious award

ArtSound’s Engineering and Development Manager, Chris Deacon, attended the National Technorama Conference in Adelaide from August 6-8 in conjunction with the South Australian Community Broadcasters Conference.

Sponsored by the Community Broadcasting Foundation, this was the second gathering of community radio technologists and included demonstrations of new equipment, discussions about digital radio and ideas for communicating information better within the sector.  A forum and wiki have been established to promote interaction, with a buy and swap section for advising availability of old equipment.

Apart from gleaning some vital information and meeting his technical peers in community radio, Chris was awarded “Best Technical Innovation for a Community Station” for his dedicated work in the “design and construction of ArtSound’s broadcast and recording studio complex”.

This was one of three inaugural SACBA Technorama Awards that were made. The conference citation noted: “The awards are in recognition of the countless hours and dedication of technicians in the sector.  Technicians are the backbone of our stations and without them we would not be the strong sector we are today.  Chris’ achievements at ArtSound FM are almost too numerous to mention and his work at ArtSound makes him a worthy recipient of this award”.

Industry stalwart and designer of much of Australia’s broadcast studio equipment, Poul Kirk, received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
