Lincoln, NE (April 26, 2004)–Euphonix has sold two System 5 digital audio broadcast consoles to the Nebraska Educational Telecommunications Commission (NETC). A newly purchased 72-channel System 5 is being installed in NETC’s new High Definition remote unit, which is scheduled to be operational this summer. The new HD remote truck will be used for sports productions and for music concert production throughout Nebraska. A 48-channel System 5 will be installed in a renovated studio production facility, where NETC produces a weekly state-wide news magazine show plus educational and public affair programs.
Assistant director of engineering for production, Percy Logan, explained, “The System 5 is very well priced for the sound quality that it offers. The console ranked high above the others because of these two major factors (value and quality).” Logan continued, “By purchasing two operational identical consoles, our audio engineers can move from the studio to the remote environment without having to relearn the console and in turn, concentrate on delivering the best sound mix.”
The statewide 9-station Nebraska ETV Network operates through a partnership between the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) and the Nebraska Educational Telecommunications Commission.
