Studer by HARMAN Introduces Quad MADI Card for D23m I/O System

New expansion card provides unprecedented amounts of I/O with four fully redundant and flexible MADI interfaces

AMSTERDAM—Studer by HARMAN today announced the first quad MADI card specifically designed to fit the D23m I/O system. The D23m Quad MADI Card opens up new connection possibilities and enables customers to fully load a single D23m with 1,536 I/O channels.

“Audio production facilities are under pressure to consolidate equipment and reduce the number of servers required to support complex workflows,” said Roger Heiniger, Solution Manager, Broadcast, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “We are pleased to deliver a quad MADI I/O card that offers renowned Studer quality and unprecedented capacity. The new card will provide audio professionals with greater flexibility and efficiency to construct I/O systems that fit their specific needs.” 

The new Studer D23m Quad MADI Card is a dual slot card fitted with four fully redundant MADI interfaces and provides up to 256 channels of I/O. The Quad MADI Card enables users to outfit a D23m I/O frame with six cards for a total of 24 redundant MADI interfaces and 1,536 channels. Installing a full rack of six Quad MADI Cards provides connections for up to 24 D21m or Compact stage boxes. Eight SFP modules (four main and four redundant) deliver versatile connection possibilities for a host of optical and electrical formats.

MADI is a worldwide standard that is used in high-capacity studio equipment interfaces, such as digital audio workstations (DAWs), video and audio routers, stage boxes and more. Studer stage boxes deliver embedded control within the MADI stream, even if all channels are used for audio. Each of the four MADI interfaces provides dual outputs with the same audio and control data. The MADI inputs will automatically switch in less than a millisecond to the reserve input if the data is corrupt or fails, thus providing full cable redundancy for typical OB operations.

The MADI interfaces will run at 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz and 96 kHz ± 100ppm in the D23m frame. Channel count is halved unless two pairs of cables are used.

Studer by HARMAN Introduces Glacier Series of Customizable Broadcast Audio Control Surfaces

New series includes streamlined modules and a virtualized interface for comprehensive control, offering flexible configuration for a variety of applications

AMSTERDAM—Studer by HARMAN today announced the new Glacier Series of customizable audio control surfaces, enabling broadcast and production facilities to adapt to a variety of applications and enhance overall efficiency. Two streamlined modules and an intuitive multi-touch graphical user interface make it easy to address different use cases and deploy the console in various configurations throughout a facility. The Glacier Series offers forwards and backwards compatibility with Studer DSP platforms, and brings new levels of control and versatility to any broadcast environment.

“Today’s on-air and production environments require dynamic flexibility, but the static physical controls on large consoles often go unused and take up valuable real estate,” said Richard Morson, Product Manager, Broadcast, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “The Studer Glacier Series eliminates the constraints of physical consoles by enabling facilities to deploy customized control surfaces that only include the necessary controls. Studer Glacier Series provides the flexibility that facilities need to address continually evolving workflows and requirements.”

The Studer Glacier Series includes two highly simplified physical surfaces that provide streamlined controls for live operation. The Central Screen Module features a vibrant display for assigning and accessing graphical user interface controls. The Fader Vistonics Module provides simplified tactile control for quick multitasking and features Studer FaderGlow for easy function or channel identification. Each module is a self-contained unit that connects to the Studer DSP Core via TCP/IP. Multiple modules can be connected together to create versatile, customized surfaces that fit any use case.

All other controls are provided virtually via the intuitive multi-touch graphical user interface (GUI). The GUI can be personalized to match the technical requirements of each user. More technical users can view as many detailed controls as they wish, while the less experienced can create simpler interfaces with only the functions and controls they need. This streamlines operation and reduces visual clutter during time-sensitive situations. The GUI also hosts comprehensive control interfaces for additional studio equipment, including broadcast automation, codec management, content management systems and more.

The Glacier Series also features forwards and backwards compatibility with Studer SCore Live and the latest Infinity Core DSP platforms. 

Full Glacier Series features include:

  • Renowned Studer quality and performance
  • Modular, IP-based scalable architecture
  • Intuitive, user-configurable GUI provides a highly adaptable virtualized control surface
  • Two control modules to choose from
    • Vibrant Central Screen Module for quick control

Studer By HARMAN Helps Germany’s Radio Darmstadt Upgrade and Future-Proof Its Audio Production Infrastructure

Studer OnAir 1500 Mixing Consoles Enable the German Radio Broadcaster to Upgrade an Aging Analog Infrastructure to a Cutting-Edge Dante-Based IP Network


DARMSTADT, Germany—HARMAN Professional Solutions announced that Radio Darmstadt, a commercial-free local radio station based in Darmstadt, Germany, recently upgraded its analog audio systems and switched to an AoIP (audio over IP) infrastructure based on Studer OnAir 1500 mixing consoles, Studer SCore routing and Audinate’s Dante audio networking technology. Launched in 1997, the station broadcasts a wide range of programming, including news, sports, culture, entertainment and more. In addition to the Studer OnAir 1500 consoles, Radio Darmstadt also implemented a Studer CMS Lite call management system, an mAirList playout and Dante Via, providing the studio with a cutting-edge production infrastructure that will streamline its entire production process.


“The new Studer consoles and Dante integration provides a consistent and streamlined workflow, and enables us to future-proof our network by easily integrating additional solutions as our needs evolve,” stated Günter Eisbach, Managing Director of Studio, Broadcast and Technology at Radio Darmstadt. “We have been using Dante technology in live sound and recording for several years, and it’s been a very positive experience. The new Studer consoles allow us to extend Dante integration and unify our entire workflow. We are proud to be one of the first radio stations to integrate Studer mixing consoles, I/O routing, call management systems, third-party systems and software with Dante.”


Radio Darmstadt features three studios that are designed for either live broadcasting or pre-production. Each studio is equipped with a 12-fader Studer OnAir 1500 mixing console surface with Studer NANO SCORE DSP and I/O Engines. The mAirList playout system and DAW (digital audio workstation) are already integrated via Dante networking. The entire system drastically reduces the amount of audio cabling required, with control (CAB, CMS, GPIO) and data running on a minimum number of CAT7 network lines. The system also provides efficient integration options for running general-purpose I/O, such as CD players and signal lights, and makes it efficient to transfer media to other applications and studios. Finally, the CAB interface was easily integrated and customized in cooperation with mAirList for running the playout automation.


Radio Darmstadt also switched from an ISDN telephone system to a VoIP-based solution, which meant the old telephone hybrids had to be replaced by an IP-based solution as well. The Studer engineering team managed the transition and integrated the Studer CMS Lite call management system by running audio over IP. The new system uses only one Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) in the CMS Lite Server System for all audio lines. Studer engineering also provided training for 120 volunteer journalists at Radio Darmstadt, which allowed them to feel comfortable operating the system almost immediately.


“The surface feels as if it were still analog,” said Eisbach. “All relevant functions are self explanatory and pleasing. I didn’t know that digital could be so easy.”

Prestigious Hungary National Theatre Continues to Rely on Studer by HARMAN for Inspired Live Performances

Long history of Studer’s flexibility, reliability and support are key features for theatre’s selection of Vista 5 M3 compact digital console

BUDAPEST, Hungary—In its quest to deliver the best live production possible, the Hungarian National Theatre has selected the Studer by HARMAN Vista 5 M3 compact digital mixer for its reliability, intuitive operation and amazing sound quality. A showcase of Hungarian artists and musicians, the National Theatre presents a demanding schedule of traditional theatre classics, contemporary plays, music performances and spoken word adaptations of Hungarian literature. The theatre features a 615-seat auditorium with a real moving stage that can be raised at 72 different points, making it unique in Europe.

“When the National Theatre opened in 2001, we had a Studer D950 digital mixing desk. At that time, it was one of the biggest configurations of that type of console and it worked great for us,” said Viktor M Szabo, Chief Sound Engineer for the Hungary National Theatre. “After 14 years of great operation, we decided to stick with Studer and we upgraded to the Vista 5 M3 digital console.”

Hungarian distributor Audio Partner Ltd. delivered the console in early 2015 and the National Theatre was up and running with their new 42-fader, Vista 5 M3 by August. Along with the console, a TFT Meter Bridge, Studer Compact Remote and five Studer Compact Stagebox units finished out the installation.

“Our productions usually cover close to 50 channels and we use a lot of wireless systems as well as direct microphones and audio inputs,” said Szabo. “The Meter Bridge is an excellent tool for us. The waveform drawing is a huge help in filtering out clip-on mic handling noise and crackling sounds, as well as being able to troubleshoot across all ports very quickly.”

The Vista 5 M3 is a highly flexible, compact digital mixer with a user-friendly control surface that will find favor among users in broadcast production, live sound and performance venues. The console is available in 22, 32 and 42-fader versions. The 32-fader desk consists of 20 channel strips, optimized for input channel operation and 12 additional versatile strips for operating input or output channels. By using the standard Vistonics screen rotary controls, up to 52 outputs are under immediate control. A total of up to 240 channels can be accessed from the desk and laid out in any order, with the Vistonics system giving instant control over all related channel functions. DSP power and I/O are specified by the customer. The total I/O capacity, comprising various cards including mic/line, ADAT, TDIF, AES/EBU, SDI and MADI may exceed 1,700 inputs and outputs. 

“We’re very happy with our Vista 5 M3 console. It’s easy to use, it sounds great and, with excellent product reliability and great customer support, Studer can’t be beat,” said Szabo. “From drama productions to bands and orchestras, to galas and large external events, we host a diverse range of productions and the Vista 5 M3 always delivers a great performance.”
