WOSU Relocates to Science Museum, Adds Euphonix Console

WOSU-TV, licensed to and operated by Ohio State University, recently moved into new quarters located within the Columbus, Ohio Center of Science and Industry. This relocation showcases the PBS member station in a science museum facility providing media literacy workshops and interactive exhibits for the visiting public.

Guests to the facility can watch television and radio productions in progress via large viewing windows that capture activity within the station's studios and control rooms.

As part of the new facility, WOSU has selected a Euphonix Max Air Digital Audio Mixing system. The console supports 106 channels, has 24 program busses and supports both analog and digital operations.

"We handle a lot of programming--both radio and TV--and the new Max Air console will enable us to expand into new areas," said John J. Prosek, WOSU broadcast manager. "We anticipate adding more music productions, additional local shows and, hopefully, more series programming. The new facilities open a wealth of opportunity for us and our new Max Air will be central to much of this activity."

Prosek said the new console is a big time saver at the operation, due to its touchscreen interface and easy configuration changes.
