Tokyo, Japan (October 6, 2015)—NHK, Japan’s national broadcasting network, has commissioned and installed two Vision consoles. Both desks were built with a variety of custom features designed to facilitate NHK’s special applications, which include both recording and live broadcasts of performances ranging from small ensembles to large orchestral groups.
The first 64 channel console was commissioned last year; upon its construction and installation, NHK came back to API requesting another desk, and now that second 64 channel Vision has been installed, too.
The first console was commissioned into NHK’s CR506, the control room for the largest scoring stage in Japan. The second Vision was installed into CR509, the control room for a large, flexible recording studio also at the NHK complex in Tokyo.
NHK was founded in 1925 when it was known as Tokyo Broadcasting. At the time, NHK was a radio broadcast station that served only the island nation. Today, NHK broadcasts internationally in multiple languages, offering original Japanese programming around the world.
