Brussels, Belgium (July 18, 2011)--Belgian broadcaster RTFB has added Studer mixing consoles to several radio stations.
Heynen, a supplier of media processing applications, has announced a multi-year agreement with RTBF (Radio television belge de la communaute francaise) for the supply and integration of Studer OnAir audio mixing consoles at radio studios in Brussels, Liege and Charleroi. Once the project is completed, all RTBF studios will be equipped with Studer mixing consoles.
RTBF Radio has made use of Studer mixing platforms for more than two decades, and took the step from analog to digital in 2006 when the studios in Mons and Namur were in need of renovation.
Serge Neybusch, RTBF's project manager, and Andre Curnell, manager of audio, said, "RTBF chose to enter into this agreement because of the excellent operability and quality of the Studer consoles. The OnAirs fit both the budget and the concepts of the station."
Central to the decision was the continuity with the brand, offering consistent workflow, and past experience and training in Mons and Namur, "This means that a producer or engineer from Liege can easily take over a program in Brussels or Mons," Neybusch noted.
