San Ángel, Mexico (April 2, 2012)—Televisa in Mexico recently purchased eight Harman Studer OnAir 3000 consoles for use in its San Ángel facility.
Televisa San Ángel is Televisa's center of production for telenovelas, soap operas, game shows and reality television, and handles the majority of post-production work for Televisa. San Ángel also contains the Televisa Center of Artistic Education, whose students form more than 85 percent of Televisa's production staff. Televisa is the largest media conglomerate in Latin America and in the Spanish-speaking world.
Each of the 18-fader models at Televista San Ángel is being used in separate studios to mix audio for a variety of programming. "We needed special configurations on the consoles because the studios are handling multiple programs," said Rafael Alfaro Bugarini of Televisa.
"We wanted consistency throughout the facility, which is why we decided to have the same model console in eight different rooms," Alfaro added. "We also wanted to grow in terms of sound quality, which is why we chose the OnAir 3000 in particular. We are able to have more capability with each fade; this means we can do so much more with less consoles. And the consoles aren't as big, but they offer more features than other models."
