The first mixing console series was developed in close consultation with the end users: the consoles proved a big success.When the Dutch broadcast market was liberalised in 1984 DATEQ introduced the first true broadcast mixing consoles.
For the pro audio market DATEQ offers a large number of different mixers. All the mixers satisfy the DATEQ criteria: a reliable, easy-to-use mixers with an extraordinary audio quality. Besides the mixers DATEQ offers a wide range of sound level limiters (SPL serie).
The broadcast mixers were designed using the know-how gained building mixing consoles for the DJ market. Since 1984 a lot has changed, but not the philosophy. Consoles are still being designed in close co-operation with the end users and quality as well as serviceability are demands to be met. Powerful microprocessors ensure a flexible, easily installable and – above all – intelligent broadcast console. Special emphasis is given to the communication section: of ever-increasing importance in the modern broadcast studio. The fact that, with all this sophistication and versatility, the consoles still are easy to use is what sets DATEQ apart.
