Moscow, Russia (November 1, 2017)—Russian broadcaster NTV has added a fourth Calrec Artemis Light digital audio console to its studio facilities in the Television Technical Center Ostankino (TTC) in Moscow.
The latest 48-fader Artemis will upgrade TTC’s Studio 18 to support popular programs such as Today, Emergency and The End of the Day With Irada Zeynalova that have recently been commissioned for broadcast by NTV, a longtime Calrec Audio customer. The other Artemis consoles used by NTV at TTC are in Studios 11 and 12.
Vladimir Baryshnikov, chief audio specialist, NTV, noted, “Our sound engineers love Artemis, and since they’re already so familiar with it, they can walk right on to new productions and start mixing—and its user-friendly interface means new operators are able to get up to speed quickly on the desk.”
Last year, NTV installed a 48-fader console in its TTC Studio 12 facility for production of a range of news and current affairs programs, and Artemis consoles are also installed in the TTC’s Studio 11 and NTV’s Gorky studio complex. As with NTV’s previous Calrec installations, Russian systems integrator OKNO-TV provided design, integration and installation services for the new Artemis Light.
NTV is also using Artemis Lights in its outside broadcast operations. In 2014, as part of its transition to digital broadcasting, NTV installed an Artemis Light with two stage boxes in NTV Mobile, an innovative Moscow-based flexible studio for live production.
