Spanish broadcaster doubles down on System T systems.

Barcelona, Spain (October 9, 2018)—Spanish broadcaster betevé has purchased two Solid State Logic System T S300 32-fader broadcast audio production consoles for its main TV studios 1 and 2, which respectively handle news and general production.

betevé is the local, publicly-owned broadcaster serving the metropolitan area of Barcelona with TV channels, radio and an online presence, which began broadcasting in 1994.

The station recently installed SSL's System T into studios 1 and 2 at the betevé TV facilities, all connected via a redundant Dante network. SSL Spanish partner Zentralmedia specified and supplied the whole system.

Commenting on the choice, Jordi Colom, director tècnic i d'innovació (technical and innovation director), noted, "First, we chose System T for its audio quality. We wanted an AoIP system that was easy to manage—so it could be run by audio engineers, not system engineers. The initial installation and set-up was quick and easy, and now we can change from one studio setup to the next one in a matter of seconds."

Studio 1 will be broadcasting general news programs and interview features. The general production studio content ranges from sports and culture panels to live music shows.

Each control room has a System T S300 32-fader control surface and an SSL Network I/O A16.D16 (analog and digital I/O to network). There are two System T T25 Tempest Audio Engines in the machine room, each capable of processing up to 256 fully processed paths at 48kHz. Two Network I/O: MADI-Bridge units take care of connecting the new networked system to existing MADI infrastructure at the studio.
