Harman's Studer Demonstrates Industry-Leading Broadcast Audio Systems and Customer Speaker Schedule at NAB 2015

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – At NAB 2015, HARMAN’s Studer is showcasing an array of world-class solutions designed to streamline workflow, maximize efficiency, and simplify system operation and management.

Studer is showing its Vista X and Vista V digital consoles, whose Infinity Core CPU-based processors provide huge numbers of DSP channels for large-scale, high-resolution audio processing and mixing. Infinity Core is truly the first of its kind, providing a scalable system, faster development of new signal processing designs, huge channel counts, full system redundancy without a single point of failure and the possibility of running third-party algorithms. Studer will also show the OnAir 3000 networked radio system running the latest software offering AoIP.

Offering a digital audio interface that features higher capacity than any other such product in the industry, Studer is also highlighting A-Link, a fiber-based interface that uses a 3Gb data rate to offer 1,536 audio channels per connection. A-Link technology makes the Infinity processing core possible, by connecting the huge number of audio channels into and out of Infinity Core. A new PCI express card has been designed to fit into the Vista X and Vista V consoles’ server board, and the card is fitted with 12 A-Link interfaces capable of over 10,000 inputs and 10,000 outputs. The A-Link interface also provides direct connection to the Riedel MediorNet distributed router, allowing many Infinity systems to be connected together with router capacities of 10,000 square or more.

In addition, Studer is hosting special guest speakers - are leaders in the broadcast industry, who will discuss their experiences and best practices. These include Andy Tapley, Sound Supervisor at t BBC Studios and Post Production, and Brad Duryea, Head of Audio Production at Lakewood Church.

BBC Studios and Post Production provides premium studio space and uses Studer technology at its studios at Elstree where Vista X, Infinity Core and OnAir 3000 digital consoles are installed. Tapley will provide an overview of the infrastructure at Elstree and will talk about how the Studer systems are used for the broadcast of shows including Strictly Come Dancing.

Lakewood Church has recently added a Studer Vista X digital console, featuring Infinity Core processing technology, for the television broadcasts of its worship services. Duryea will present an in-depth description of the Studer system at Lakewood Church.

Senior product staff from Studer and JBL will also present during the week on digital mixing technologies and the new JBL 7 Series studio monitoring system.

HHB Communications Upgrades Radio Station at Imperial College Union with HARMAN’s Studer OnAir 1500 Console

LONDON, United Kingdom — Delivering ease of use and professional-grade audio quality for a student-run broadcast studio, HHB Communications Ltd. recently upgraded the radio station at Imperial College Union, the college’s Student Union, with a HARMAN Studer OnAir 1500 digital mixing console.

Imperial College London is a premium science-based university, consistently ranked among the best in the world, offering a multidisciplinary space for education, research, translation and commercialisation, harnessing science and innovation to tackle global challenges. The College’s Student Union houses a student-run radio station, Imperial College Radio, which broadcasts a variety of programming that ranges from music to comedy shows to discussion forums.

“The school wanted to refurbish the Student Union’s broadcast facilities, which includes a radio station, TV studio and rehearsal area,” said Andrew Hingley, Education Sales Manager for HHB. “The radio station was the most important part of the upgrade, so they were looking for a mixer that could handle their audio needs and was easy to use.”

Ultimately, HHB and Imperial College Union chose the Studer OnAir 1500, a 12-channel, 12-fader console designed as a flexible hybrid solution for radio broadcasting and production. It’s ideal for studios needing a compact and cost effective mixing console for a production room or studio. Integrated USB playback and record functions make the OnAir 1500 a very compact, yet complete, mixer.

“The OnAir 1500 is high-quality, easy to use and met the Union’s budget requirements, so it was a perfect fit for the station,” Hingley noted. “A lot of undergrads are also interested in pursuing careers in broadcasting after college, so it’s beneficial to familiarize them with products that they’ll encounter in professional studios.”

Discovery Networks Denmark Meets Growing Demands with HARMAN’s Studer Vista 5 M3 Digital Console

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Discovery Networks Denmark, Copenhagen, has undergone a major upgrade of its studios, control rooms and equipment to meet the requirements for larger and more demanding sports productions, while also using the opportunity to rebuild the physical environment as well. As most of the equipment had to be replaced, the overall decision was taken to use a hybrid video router that should be connected via MADI to the audio infrastructure as well as the intercom system. The audio console chosen to facilitate the various scenarios of Discovery is a HARMAN Studer Vista 5 M3 with 42 faders.

“The decision to go with Studer was an easy choice for us,” explained Discovery´s Technical Manager Michael Lind. “We saw the advantages of the Vistonics™ graphical user interface, which provides a fast and easy-to-understand surface for our sound engineers. We need a fast learning curve, as most of our sound engineers are hired as freelancers. Therefore the Studerconsole also gives us peace of mind as this has become the de facto standard in Denmark for these types of environments.

After initial meetings with Studer’s Danish distributor, Danmon Group, a layout of the console was chosen and it turned out to be very straightforward as all connections are purely via MADI. Two strings attach the Studer SCore Live to the video hybrid router and two strings are connected to a Studer Compact Stagebox.

“The Compact Stageboxes with 32 Mic/Line inputs and 16 Line outputs are more than adequate for our needs in the two studios,” explained technician Karsten Nielsen. “Most of our audio connections are done via the hybrid router, so the Stageboxes in the studios are widely used for special needs including the wireless microphones. Should extra in/outputs be needed we still have the opportunity to populate the two modular D21m slots in each Stagebox with the right type of interfaces.” 

The Vista 5 Studer console was installed in late summer 2014, while the studio paint was still wet! It has now been in full service for half a year and has fulfilled all the expectations Discovery Networks Denmark had for the console.

Studer Announces Major New Features For Vista Consoles

POTTERS BAR, United Kingdom – HARMAN’s Studer today announced the release of significant new features for the Vista X, Vista V, Vista 1 and Vista 5 M3 digital consoles. This new software update includes the ability to assign Strip Setups as CUE events; support of the Soundcraft Realtime Rack (UAD plug-ins); support of Lexicon PCM96 Surround reverbs with Infinity Core; Input Gain unfold for multi-format channels; Spill Zone for contributing channels; GUI enhancements and new patch groups; A-Line embedded Ethernet; and contribution PAN in stereo channels to mono Aux busses.

 

With the 5.2 software, saved Strip Setups can be assigned as CUE Events in the CUE List. Recalling CUEs that have these events assigned, will automatically load the specified Strip Setup onto the desk’s surface. This feature is a great help for users who are mixing in a “scene”-based workflow like in application such as theatres and pre-programmed shows. Loading the CUEs for the next scene will also bring the currently needed channels onto the surface.

 

Up to four Soundcraft Realtime Racks, loaded with high quality Universal Audio (UAD) Plug-Ins, can now be connected to every Vista system. All plug-in parameters are saved and recalled by CUE events. The CUE events are also organized in a library and can be re-used for other CUE events. The individual CUE events can be enabled and disabled, and can be updated at any time.

 

Vista FX quality reverb is now also available for Vista X and Vista V running on Infinity Cores. Up to six (in pairs of two) original Lexicon PCM96 Surround reverb units can be connected over AES/EBU. Parameter control works over HARMAN HiQnet™ directly from the mixer’s Vistonics™ user interface.

 

In addition, stereo and 5.1 input channels will have individual digital input gain parameters for each channel leg. Pressing the button next to the ‘Main’ digital input gain Vistonics rotary will flip the input page into a view, where the individual digital input gain parameters (L, R, C, LFE, Ls, Rs) are accessible.

Channels contributing to any type of busses can immediately be brought up within a user-definable ‘Spill Zone’, on top of the desk’s active fader layer. Pressing the Contribution button of any bus channel in the control bay will line up all channels in the predefined Spill Zone, which are contributing to this bus, allowing full processing parameter access of these member channels. The user can quickly define the size, position and spill direction of the Spill Zone at any time from the Strip Setup page.

 

The 5.2 software’s User GUI is also enhanced with the well-known Ribbon Bar, giving a better overview and easier access for the operator. With the Infinity Core’s power, a huge amount of channels can be organized and controlled. To simplify this task, new user-definable Patch Groups, comprising easy-to-handle filtering options as well as customizable Source and Target views have been added.

 

For Infinity Core with D23m, the Ethernet control signal can be tunnelled together with the audio stream from the CoreLink card through the A-Link ports to the D23m’s HD cards. This means that no additional Ethernet cable has to be connected to the D23m’s Ethernet card anymore (although this option is still available).

 

Finally, in stereo channels, all contribution paths to mono Aux busses now have a PAN control before the mix-down to mono. This not only enables assignment of the channel’s left or right leg to the Aux bus, but also sends a user-defined mix of the stereo channel to the mono Aux bus. This dramatically expands the possibilities of signal contribution to loudspeakers, especially in theatres.

Studer Vista V Digital Console Makes Middle East Debut at Sharjah TV

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – HARMAN’s Studer has announced that it has sold its Vista V console in the Middle East to Sharjah TV in the United Arab Emirates. It will be installed by Dubai-based Tek Signals as part of a complete turnkey broadcast integration for Studio 3, which is being upgraded to an HD platform. The studio will be used for live news as well as programme production.

 

The integrators had voted in favour of the Vista V after attending a launch seminar, co-presented by Studer and territory distributor, GSL Professional. Their proposal was endorsed by Sharjah TV’s broadcast consultant Djeddi Kouider of dxb Technology LLC—although the client decision to back the 32-fader Vista V was only made after evaluation against another market leader.

 

“When Sharjah TV was looking to upgrade its virtual reality studio with top-of-the-line technology, Vista V immediately became the preferred choice,” confirms Nasser Mohammed, Tek Signals Principal Projects Engineer.

 

The new Vista V harnesses Quad Star technology, which uses four processors to achieve major levels of redundancy in the control surface, to deliver a powerful and dependable broadcast audio mixing solution in a compact form factor, while Studer's Vistonics™ interface and FaderGlow™ add to the operator’s enhanced experience.

 

But it was the Infinity Core, which provides unprecedented levels of CPU-based processing power, enabling it to handle large-scale productions easily, that initially appealed. “This and the overall sound quality of Studer’s approved technology were key factors,” confirms Mohammed.

 

Other important assets included the console’s inbuilt delay, configurability and FaderGlow™. “This is ideal for operators to assign faders, providing configurability without the need for physical patching or plugging cables,” he notes.

 

At the same time, Tek Signals are supplying Sharjah TV with a new Studer D23m I/O frame, allowing console users to transfer a large number of audio channels; this works with the new Infinity Core and A-link interface technology (as well as accepting existing D21m cards).

 

With the Studio 3 upgrade Sharjah TV has an eye on the future. It already owns Vista 1, OnAir 3000 and OnAir 2500 consoles and is in the process of upgrading the OnAir 3000 in Studio 4 to act as a Studer RELINK hub; this will provide a more efficient workflow and resource sharing between consoles over a Studer network, and was one of the main advantages of proposing the Studer Vista V in the first place. At the same time Tek Signals is adding a meter-bridge to the existing Vista 1 that resides in Studio 1.
