Bogota, Colombia (October 6, 2011)—Three television and radio studios in Colombia recently added Studer and Soundcraft digital mixing consoles to their facilities.
Radio Televisión Nacional de Colombia, a Colombian state-owned broadcaster, purchased four Studer OnAir 3000 digital mixing consoles for live broadcast and production work. Two OnAir 3000s are used for on-air broadcasting in the Radio Nacional de Colombia and Radionica radio studios. Another is used in a production studio where programming is recorded for both radio stations, and a fourth OnAir 3000 serves as a backup console and for routing all the audio from the other consoles so that journalists and programmers have access to all the content being produced by the radio stations.
RCN Televisión (Radio Cadena Nacional), a Colombian private television network that reaches 97 percent of the population via 13 TV stations, installed three Studer Vista 5 digital mixing systems, one in each of RCN’s newest two OB trucks for live events, and one in a main live TV studio. RCN produces a mix of original series, telenovelas, news, game shows, sporting events and other programming.
In addition, RCN TV has three Soundcraft Si3 digital consoles, purchased for a reality show last year and with at least one used for the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Bogota.
Citytv Bogota is a local TV station in Bogota that broadcasts a mix of entertainment and news programming. The station purchased a Soundcraft Vi4 digital console that has become an integral part of the station’s news broadcasts in more ways than one–the console is located right behind the TV reporter during Citytv newscasts and is visible on TV.
