DENMARK TV2 East upgrades with Studer By Erica Basnicki

READY FOR a technical upgrade of its audio equipment, Denmark’s regional broadcaster TV2 East has purchased a 32- fader Studer Vista 5 M2 digital mixing console for its studio in Vordingborg, supplied by Studer’s Danish distributor Danmon. TV2 East is primarily using the console for its four daily news broadcasts, sports programming, along with its regional talk shows and documentaries. “We had a Yamaha PM1D console but it was time to replace the board, so we have been researching and found Studer to be the best fit,” said Kasper Thor Larsen, head of technology at TV2 East. “This Vista 5 console has the best audio quality I’ve heard from a broadcast console, and its redundancy was another major factor in our decision.”

Larsen added that the ability to control the console via the EMBER protocol played a big factor in the decision. For some applications, the console will be controlled from TV2 East’s Ross Overdrive automation system. “The integration of Studer

Vista FX by Lexicon is also a perfect match for our requirements and gives easy control of the effects in a cost- effective way,” Larsen noted. n
