Palo Alto, CA (June 16 2004)–Royals from across Europe gathered in Madrid, Spain to celebrate the wedding of Prince Felipe on May 22. The event was noted as the wedding of the century and Televisión Española (TVE) was able to capture it all with the help of the Euphonix Max Air digital mixing console.
The audio program feed for the royal wedding was mixed on a 32-fader, 96-channel Max Air broadcast console, supplied by Eumovil. In front of the console were TVE’s operators Alfonso Marahuetes, Gabriel Solsona and Javier Llorente. All three operators began learning how to use the console just a few days prior to the event. The continuous six hours of programming was transmitted without a hitch to an audience of an estimated 1.2 billion people worldwide.
They stated, “The Max Air mixing console worked exceptionally well for this important event. The console has an analogue like control surface and great EQ which we really enjoyed using. Most importantly, it was extremely reliable and easy to learn and use.”
Eumovil’s parent company MEDIApro collaborated with TVE and the broadcast was performed under the technical direction of TVE’s David Valcarce and Eumóvil’s Thierry Huin. Due to the modularity of the Max Air, the surface was installed in the audio control room of the Media Luso OB Van and all the processing and audio interfaces 30 meters away in a portable Master Control Room (MCR).
