Athens, Greece (March 19, 2018)—Stage Tec has supplied the audio equipment for a multipurpose art, education and entertainment complex in Greece that encompasses recording and radio studios and live sound production.
In cooperation with Greek distribution partner Telmaco, Stage Tec completed the project in Athens at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), a multipurpose complex that is home to the Greek National Opera House (GNO) and the National Library of Greece (NLG). The SNFCC was developed through an exclusive grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The SNFCC was delivered by the foundation as a gift to the Greek state last year.
At the 1,400-seat National Opera House, three Crescendo consoles are connected to two Nexus Star routers. The main stage sound production features a 40-fader Crescendo. The second 40-fader Crescendo was installed in the sound production unit of the performance hall, a smaller stage for experimental productions. The third Crescendo has 48 faders and is used for mixing—for example, with an orchestra—in the opera's large recording studio.
Three recording studios were installed in the National Library, one of which is equipped with radio broadcasting equipment, utilizing an IP-based On Air flex console from Stage Tec. The console features 40 input channels, 32 output buses and four monitoring paths, and is used to mix radio programs and presenters. When music sessions are taking place in the recording studios, the On Air flex mixes the musicians' audio and feeds the live recording directly into the radio program.

The On Air flex is connected to a Nexus network consisting of 15 Base Devices and three routers. A Nexus Star router acts as the hub, linking all the Base Devices. The routing network provides more than 400 TrueMatch microphone inputs with the XMIC board.
