China’s Independent TV stations choose Studer digital path

A Studer Vista 6 audio console is aiding China’s Tiajin TV’s progression to HD.

Studer has been selected to supply digital audio consoles to both Hebei TV and Tianjin TV in China. These independent television broadcasters will both be using Studer Vista Series audio broadcast consoles.

Hebei Television Station, located in Shijiazhuang in the Hebei province, made the decision to upgrade to a digital broadcast console in its largest live studio, used to produce more than 60 percent of the station’s entertainment programs and all of its major live shows. A 32-fader Studer Vista 8 will provide the main broadcast signal. The Vista 8 offers a powerful and intuitive Vistonics interface and an extremely compact and efficient control surface, offering immediate access to 72 level controls without switching banks or paging. Hebei TV is utilizing the system to create stereo SD television programming.

Tianjin Television Station, based in the Heping district of Tianjin City, has also refurbished its primary studio — a 2625sq ft space used predominantly for live show productions. When it came to replacing its former analog broadcast console with new digital technology, Tianjin TV selected a 40-fader Studer Vista 6 console equipped with 32 mic and 24 analog line inputs with an additional 24 digital AES/EBU inputs and outputs.

The broadcaster reports that the Vista desk’s operational concept made the transition from the analog operation to digital relatively easy. During the refurbishment, Tianjin TV also upgraded its video system to HD and is now producing all of its large-scale productions in both stereo HD and SD formats.
