Arrakis Systems is the leading manufacturer of radio automation, radio consoles and radio studio furniture.
The ARC-10 and ARC-15 consoles can now connect using Bluetooth technology. The first of its kind.

Freedom to connect.
Connect your tablet using the bluetooth radio console.

Connect your phone.
You can now connect your smart phone to an ARC series bluetooth radio mixer console.

Take calls on the audition bus, where you may record the call for later playback, or send it to the program out to play over the air. It is as simple as a click of a button.

 

The consoles do all this, while still allowing an external phone hybrid to be connected to channel 15 (ARC-15) or channel 10 (ARC-10) at the same time.

 

With the Bluetooth connection, you may stream full bandwidth, high quality stereo (A2DP) audio to the respective channel.

 

The ARC-blue boards use the BlueCore 5 Multimedia chip by CSR, which is the most advanced Bluetooth audio chip available, and has the performance capabilities far beyond standard Bluetooth specifications. Operating in the 2.4GHz spectrum, Bluetooth is also RF resistant.

Connect any apple product to the Bluetooth radio console.

Connect to your landline.

Would you prefer to connect to your landline? Then use the VTech DS6421-3 phone system along with our Bluetooth console to connect to your landline.

 

Connect the DS6421-3 to your console, which acts as a headset. Then place or receive calls on your landline, for less than $90! This is an excellent alternative to other expensive phone hybrids.

Quality and connectivity are two fundamental requirements for broadcast radio consoles.

 

The ARC series consoles were the first to introduce PC & Mac connectivity with its USB audio channel. It also led the way with its use of the RJ-45 connection.

 

These achievements put the

ARC series ahead of its time

and gives you the power you need for your station.

 

Arrakis continues to lead the way in console innovation and are excited to introduce Bluetooth connectivity built into the ARC-10-blue series & ARC-15BP-blue consoles.

 

Now you can connect your Bluetooth phone to our broadcast radio consoles.

 

Both Channel 15 on the ARC-15BP-blue and Channel 10 for the ARC-10-blue series can be paired to any Bluetooth enabled device such as your cell phone, MP3 player, MP3 recorder editor and more.

 

Just pair your cell phone to the console, and answer your incoming calls with the built-in 'Call' button on the board. You may then end the call with the 'Drop' button, just like a standard Bluetooth phone hybrid. The caller receives the console bus mix ('minus' the caller audio) so there is no feedback.

 


Connect your tablet.

The Bluetooth technology allows you to connect to any Bluetooth enabled device. You may use your Android smart phone, or tablet; as well as connect your iPhone or iPad.

 

This freedom gives your staff the ability to bring their MP3 player from home and play their playlists on the fly. This also gives your news guy the ability to record an interview and play it back using the completely wireless Bluetooth connection.

 


Quality audio comes standard.
Bluetooth
Compatibility

Phone Hybrid functionality.

The Bluetooth channel acts as a phone hybrid. Connect your Bluetooth enabled  cell phone and place callers directly on-air, or record on the Audition bus for later playback.

 

Use the Call button to accept the call.     Use the Drop button to either reject a call  or to end a call in progress.

 

With cell phone technology, you may even connect up to 4 callers in a conference call (dependent on cell phone model and carrier).

 

You may even use the Phone channel on the board to connect to a standard phone hybrid. The audio sums in, so you can use the channel for both Bluetooth or phone hybrid functionality.

Notes:

1) Compression: the standards committee for Bluetooth audio has set the audio data channel bit rate at 721kb/sec. As this is less than the 1.4Mb/sec required for uncompressed 16 bit CD quality audio, the Bluetooth audio channels are compressed. The quality of audio is determined by the type of compression used. The Bluetooth default compression standard is SBC (sub band compression) with a high quality bit rate > 300kb/sec, which is comparable to CD quality.

2) Audio Performance: the performance specifications are per the data sheets from the supplier.
