New Zealand (June 28, 2016)—Television New Zealand (TVNZ) has just installed a new Calrec Artemis Light audio console and a Concord processor upgrade on the network's existing Artemis Beam desk.
"We've enjoyed a long and successful partnership with Calrec, going back to 1996 when we brought in two analog Calrec C2 consoles for our live television production studios," said Paul Hedges, general manager, production services and facilities, at TVNZ. "When it came time to upgrade, we had no doubt the Artemis consoles would meet our needs.
A government-owned national broadcaster, TVNZ serves viewers throughout New Zealand and other Pacific regions with daily news and current affairs programming as well as a broad range of live and recorded entertainment shows.
TVNZ brought in the Artemis Beam for its news studio in 2014 as a replacement for the Calrec analog consoles, which had been in use almost two decades. This was part of a strategic plan to expand production capabilities with a new Artemis Light console for a second studio. TVNZ installed the Artemis Light earlier this year for production of a wide variety of lifestyle programs.
