Bonaduz, Switzerland (June 9, 2009)–Tele S¸dostschweiz has recently installed a Studer OnAir 3000 console into an infrastructure that supports the production of daily newscasts.
The VJs of Tele S¸dostschweiz have a total of nine HD cameras available, which allows them to directly record reports onto flash data carriers for additional broadcast versatility. The Studer OnAir 3000 operates with 12 faders in the main control room at the studios, located in southeastern Switzerland, and is responsible for broadcasting Swiss newscasts, weather reports and talk shows. The programs are then produced and provided by affiliate TV stations and are efficiently transcoded via satellite or file exchange.
Three production centers with 12 editing workstations are available to the VJs at the main studio in Bonaduz. There are also three workspaces in the regional studio in Glarus for extended versatility. At the Glarus facility, the material is received, edited, set to music and then filed for production, where the finalized features are distributed to the playout system in MPEG-2 format.
Finalized programs are then filed into the broadcast system, fed to the cable provider Cablecom, located in Chur, and distributed to the cable networks throughout the entire southeast corner of Switzerland.
