Studer Boosts Swiss TV’s Pioneering Trimedial Zambo

Studer

ZURICH, Switzerland – Broadcasting since August 2010 on Swiss television (SF) and radio (SR DRS), Zambo is a multimedia world for children, aged between seven and 13, in German-speaking Switzerland. In the programme viewers are taken on a trimedial discovery trip – via television, radio and online.

With the creation of the Studio 30 on the Brunnenhofstrasse in Zurich, the technical pioneers of Swiss Radio and Television (SRF) now have an infrastructure that is unparalleled — with a Studer OnAir 3000 mixing console at its core.

Situated in the old building of a large complex of radio studios, the technical requirements of the installation provided an almost insurmountable challenge for even the most accomplished specialists — since Zambo is broadcast both on SF2 and DRS 1 — as well as the Internet!

KREMS, Austria — The Donaufestival is an Austrian festival of music and performance that takes place each April on the River Danube in Krems, in the state of Lower Austria.

Promoted by the NOE Festival-Ges for the past two decades, the festival showcases a wide range of artistry — from avant-garde rock, performance art and electronica.

This year for the first time the production brought in the Soundworx team of audio engineers, with Klaus Hübner on monitors, and Michael Schmidt given the task of piloting the house mix through a Soundcraft Vi6 — supplied by Redline Enterprise — over two weekends.

The FOH engineer, who had specifically requested the Vi6 after being introduced to the desk at the Prolight+Sound Show in Frankfurt, was gratified that so many visiting artists’ sound engineers also specified the desk on their riders.
