Palo Alto, CA (December 10, 2003)–The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), Radio, Canada’s national public broadcaster, has again selected Euphonix’s System 5-B digital audio console. The broadcaster installed the first System 5-B console this summer in its world class Toronto Radio Drama production studio. The latest 48-fader System 5-B console, with 130 channels of processing, will be installed in a new remote truck used for recording and live show production.
This is the seventh multiple broadcast audio console order this year for Euphonix. CBC is Canada’s largest cultural institution, providing services in English and French, including programming for three platforms–radio, television, and Internet.
Radio Network operations manager, John McCarthy, explained, “The new System 5-B will be put to heavy use over the next several years to satisfy the demand for our new fully digital remote recording truck. We made the decision to purchase the first Euphonix System 5 due to its powerful and intuitive control surface. We ordered a second System 5-B after discovering how easy the console is to use and understand, and our engineers also love the sound.”
Executive vice president of sales for the Americas, Rich Nevens, commented, “CBC has very stringent requirements for their digital audio consoles and we are delighted that the Corporation has chosen Euphonix once again. We have a successful track record of System 5’s operating in mobile trucks and are fully confident that the capabilities will comfortably handle any show they throw at it.”
