Studer Digital Consoles win the broadcasting heart of Romania
June 06, 2005
Two Studer VISTA 8 digital audio mixing consoles have been ordered by Romanian National TV (SRTV) following a competitive 3-way tender to provide sound equipment for two refurbished News Studios at the broadcaster's headquarters in Bucharest.
The contract has been won by Electro-Vox, the distributor of several Harman-owned brands in Romania. In addition to the two Studer Vista 8 consoles, the order includes JBL LSR6328P studio monitors and Lexicon outboard equipment.
These are SRTV's older studios which are being refurbished. Built in the 1960s, these studios have already played a central role in Romanian history, transmitting live coverage of the events of the revolution to the country and to the watching world. When the new Vista consoles are installed in June/July, they will be used for a variety of programming requirements, including production of 'Surprise, Surprise', Romania's most popular Sunday TV show.
Marius Coman, general manager of Electro-Vox, identifies the quality of the Vista 8 console package, together with its price, as factors that helped Studer win such a prestigious client in Bucharest, as well as the personal support of Studer's president, Bruno Hochstrasser.
Studer's popularity with the Romanian broadcasting community extends even further: this year, the Romanian Broadcasting Corporation has taken delivery of six OnAir 2000 consoles, as well as a large Studer digital Routing System (Route 5000 with CSPC control System), for use in its radio studios.
