CCTV covers Mt. Everest Olympic torch event with Euphonix digital console

As a team of climbers May 8 scaled the icy sides of Mt. Everest carrying the Olympic torch to the summit, Chinese broadcaster CCTV used a Euphonix System 5-B to broadcast the monumental feat live.

Clearly heard panting for their breath during the broadcast, the five torchbearers passed the flame to team captain, Nyima Cering, who proclaimed "One world, one dream," the 2008 Olympic slogan.

With 16 different channels of programming, CCTV is mainland China’s major television broadcaster. As one of only six Chinese broadcast companies to be selected to broadcast the Beijing Olympics, CCTV has been preparing for the upcoming Olympic Games. With 10 Euphonix on-air mixing systems installed for on-air, HDTV and OB productions, CCTV is prepped and ready to go.

The System 5-B digital broadcast console is specifically configured for live and live-to-tape production with dual redundant power supplies and redundant DSP SuperCore.
