Lugano, Switzerland (March 1, 2013)—RSI Rete Tre in Switzerland recently
overhauled and upgraded its main studio, installing a Harman Studer
OnAir 3000 digital broadcast console.
RSI Rete Tre is the third
Italian-language radio station from Radiotelevisione svizzera di lingua
italiana (RSI), based in Lugano, Switzerland. Set up in 1988, it is
aimed at younger viewers, broadcasting solely in Italian and featuring
popular and alternative music.
The OnAir 3000 was supplied by
Studer's Swiss distributor, Dr. W.A. Guenther and is configured with 18
faders, multiple CAB system support, DJ and editorial monitoring, along
with two master bus, recording bus, four aux bus and 16 N1 (mix-minus)
The station's principal criteria were ease of use—since
their DJs need to manage multiple tasks when on air such as computers
and phone calls-and integration with the existing Studer DigiMedia
Marco Strigl, Rete Tre's Technical support,
said, "We already have several mixers from Studer, including OnAir 5000,
OnAir 1000, OnAir 1500, OnAir 2500, Vista 7 and Vista 8, and past
experience has shown us that they are very reliable-particularly the
I/O on the desk include eight mic/line inputs; eight
line inputs; 24 AES/EBU Inputs; 64 MADI optical inputs; 16 ADAT optical
inputs (for monitoring), eight line outputs; 24 AES/EBU outputs; 64
MADI optical outputs; and 16 ADAT optical outputs (for monitoring).
