Endemol’s Sport studios in the MediArena in Amsterdam have been equipped with two 42-fader Studer Vista 5 digital mixing consoles.
The consoles were supplied by Studer’s Dutch distributor Heynen and installed by system integrator DutchView.
This upgrade was carried out as part of a production redesign to mark the start of the 2013-2014 Dutch football season.
Three new HD studios and production galleries dedicated to match-day programming and highlights have been built.
The studios are equipped with a Riedel MediorNet media network and the signals coming from the venues, master control room and local play out servers are merged into MADI streams via a third-party audio router. Local studio audio sources (such as mics) are patchable directly to the Studer D21 I/O frame.
Endemol resources manager Sjaak Vreeburg, explains: “We can now handle three different live programmes on three different channels, using one video/audio router for the three studios, one intercom system, Virtual studio manager and other software solutions.”
“The workflow from EVS is directly streamed to the storage facility. We can start editing instantly on up to 12 sets for direct playback in the studio by IP-directory or file transfer to the Fox play-out facility and master control room in Hilversum,” adds Vreeburg.
“There is no comparison between the present configuration and the situation before, with usage of all eight audio channels, the incoming lines, live studio production, commentary positions and playback from EVS via the excellent interface between Riedel and Studer.”
