Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei (April 16, 2013)-Radio Televisyen Brunei (Radio Television Brunei or RTB), the state broadcaster of Brunei, recently standardized on the Harman Studer OnAir 2500 console for a regional studio.
RTB runs five radio networks from its base at Bandar Seri Begawan: National FM, Pilihan FM, Pelangi FM, Harmoni FM and Nur Islam FM. Recently a Harman Studer OnAir 2500 fixed frame console, configured with 18 faders, became the choice for its regional studio in the Tutong district. The broadcaster had been using a Studer 916 for its on-air studio for the past 15 years.
According to Mahajak Trio, senior manager, sales and project, Lee Chin Kah, the station had been looking for a new desk. The tender was awarded to AFS Engineering Kuala Lumpur for the complete integration. Harman Malaysia distributor, Mahajak Trio Electronic Sdn Bhd, supplied the console.
A spokesman for the RTB engineering team explained, "We needed a console that was reliable, well supported from the supplier and the manufacturer, fully featured and sufficiently flexible to meet our workflow needs. Furthermore, no advance programming skills are required. The OnAir 2500 has all the features available in Studer's complete range of OnAir consoles and provides a fully scalable platform of solutions to broadcasters."
