Paris, France (September 7, 2005)–Radio Notre Dame, the only Catholic radio station in Paris, has upgraded its audio facilities, installing a new Studer OnAir 3000 digital audio broadcast console.
Broadcasting in FM principally to the Catholic community in France’s capital via the Canal+ satellite, Radio Notre Dame also prepares a daily program of music and speech-based productions (COFACE) which is syndicated to other Catholic networks throughout France and Africa via satellite and the Internet.
With the help of long-term equipment supplier Audiopole, RND has replaced an older Studer console with an 18-fader OnAir 3000 digital console and upgraded ancillary equipment to digital. The decision to go digital was driven by a need for flexibility and enhanced routing facilities.
The OnAir 3000 has been configured so that six faders are set to one side, reserved for the secondary programming that is disseminated via satellite. RND’s primary program material is prepared using the larger 12-fader console work surface. Engineers are delighted with the speed and flexibility of control, which has made routing much easier and offered many more possibilities for monitoring in the adjacent six-person studio.
