Turkish Radio and Television Corporation Upgrades Its Izmir Radio Studios With HARMAN's Studer Vista 9 Console





ISTANBUL, Turkey ľ Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT) is the national public broadcaster of Turkey, and broadcasts its TV programming around the world, offering more than 14 regional, national and international radio stations including the Voice of Turkey. TRT has relied on HARMAN's Studer consoles since the 1980s and recently upgraded its Izmir Radio Studios with a Studer Vista 9 digital console.

"I have been working at TRT for more than 25 years in a number of capacities, and all that time we have depended on Studer gear to get the job done," said Erkan G÷kceli, Technical Manager and Designer at Izmir Radio Studios. "We've used everything from the old Studer 169 mixer to no less than 15 ReVox B77 reel to reel tape decks. As a broadcast and recording mixer at Izmir Radio Studios I put our previous Studer 902 console through every situation you can imagine but when it was time to upgrade our studios, we decided that we would move to a digital mixer with modern features and flexibility."

Izmir Radio Studios purchased a Vista 9 console from Turkish Studer distributor SF Dis Ticaret Koll.Sti. The Vista 9 has four bays and 40 faders, with the faders configured as 30 for source inputs, 10 VCA groups plus two masters. The console provides 32 mic inputs, 24 AES inputs, 24 AES outputs, 80 line ins, 64 line outs and 16 general purpose in/outs. In addition, Izmir Radio bought a host of additional HARMAN Professional components including AKG mics and headsets, dbx equalizers, Crown amplifiers, a Lexicon® reverb unit, JBL studio monitors and Soundcraft mixers.

"As someone who works with the equipment year-in and year-out, I insist that the consoles I use are robust and of high quality," G÷kceli noted. "We do a lot of live broadcast at Izmir Radio and TRT and as any live engineer knows there is no room for error in a live production situation. Based on our previous track record, I was confident the Studer Vista 9 would be completely dependable."

"As expected, so far the operation of the Vista 9 has been flawless," G÷kceli said. "I'm also finding that the newer features of the Vista 9, such as the Vistonics touchscreen interface, the FaderGlow faders that can be color-coded by function and the total freedom to lay out input and master channels anywhere across the console's surface have been incredibly useful. I can configure the Vista 9 any way I want it which gives me far more control flexibility than I've ever had and makes mixing a live or taped broadcast easier and more efficient than I could have imagined."
