Vancouver, Canada (April 5, 2013)—Canada’s Rogers Media Inc. has installed eight StudioComm 76DA/77 5.1 surround monitoring systems throughout its newly upgraded production facilities.
Rogers Media, a subsidiary of Rogers Communications Inc., one of Canada’s largest media providers, operates the Citytv and OMNI Television networks, comprising 10 television stations and specialty channels, including Sportsnet, OLN, G4 Canada and others, along with 45 FM and nine AM radio stations across Canada. The Studio Technologies 76DA/77 units provide Rogers Media with integration into the existing equipment infrastructure and a consistent user interface, delivering audio monitoring selection of surround and stereo audio sources.
“We recently upgraded our production facilities to HD and surround production, and needed a reliable monitor-selection unit to handle 5.1 and stereo tracks from multiple sources,” says Nathan Pachal, senior broadcast facilities technician for Rogers Media. “We have put these units in our video control rooms, our audio control room, our production edit suites and post-production room, giving our technical staff standardized ergonomic and operational capabilities for all monitor touch points in the complex. We were looking for a product that would allow us to listen to 5.1 and also a stereo downmix of that signal while being able to control the volume from a desktop controller, not a dedicated rack-mount unit.
