Studer OnAir 2500 desk.Las Vegas, NV (April 17, 2008)–NAB 2008 will see the world premiere of the new Studer OnAir 2500 console for on-air radio use. The OnAir 2500 features a fully digital, all-in-one design and established software technology derived from the OnAir 3000.
The Studer OnAir 2500 is a self-contained system and builds upon the operational concepts of its predecessor, the OnAir 2000. With the OnAir 2500, the control surface, I/O breakout, DSP core and power supply are all integrated within a single compact chassis.
The desk’s fader strips each include a graphical OLED (Organic LED) screen, which contains a channel label, level and gain reduction meter and parameter readouts, adjustable via a rotary encoder and two push buttons below the display. The large TFT color touch screen uses Studer’s patented Touch’n’Action system, where only the most important functions have hardware control elements in the channel strip.
The touch screen can also display all the relevant settings and configurations for each channel in addition to the OLED displays. The user interface is designed in the same symbolic language as the Vistonics system, and adjusted in a flat hierarchy without the use of multi-level menus.
Three standard console configurations with 12, 18 and 24 faders are available, with motorized channel faders available as an option.
Studer, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary, is at booth N8229 at the NAB Show.
