PARIS, France – NRJ TV has recently purchased a HARMAN Studer Vista 1

control room and two studios to manage the production of its NRJ 12 channels,
Chérie 25 and NRJ Hits. Both channels broadcast news and live shows every day.
to Cédric Drapeau, Technical Manager, it was important to upgrade to a console
that could sustain the network’s production growth. “We have a variety of
programming that takes place here at NRJ 12 and Chérie 25, so we need equipment
that provides a high level of versatility to meet our varying needs,” he said.

the network’s technical environment.
configuration of the two studios is based on an EtherSound network,
allowing for easy routing and management of signals between the two TV studios
and the control table. The Vista 1 has an EtherSound connection that can
control over 32 inputs and 32 outputs to perfectly interface into the network.

channels. The Vista 1 can handle mono, stereo and 5.1 inputs with ease, and is
provided with 32 mic/line inputs, 16 line outputs and eight stereo AES inputs

including the patented Vistonics™ user interface plus features such as true broadcast
monitoring, talkback, red light control, GPIO, N-x (Mix Minus) busses, snapshot
automation and DAW control.
The Vista 1’s I/O can be expanded using the standard Studer
