Media Prima selects Crescendo for first HD OB
MALAYSIA: Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup Sdn Bhd has delivered a Crescendo console to the Media Prima TV Network for use in the broadcaster’s first HD 5.1 outside broadcast truck. Intended for 5.1 surround mixing, the 32-channel Crescendo model is connected to a Nexus system reportedly providing DSP for up to 300 channels and 128 mix busses.
‘Based on users' experiences, reviews and feedback, Stagetec consoles have a high level of quality, flexibility and reliability. On top of that, the Stagetec technical team has been giving premium service and prompt support. Thus, we believe the combination of both these aspects have been winning points for us,’ said Media Prima TV Network’s audio director, Mohd Zaidi. ‘We have been using Stagetec consoles for years and we are very confident with the advanced technology featured in the Crescendo. Not only is it user-friendly, but it is also offers easy accessibility for users. We are very happy having Crescendo in our OB truck.’
According to the manufacturer, the combined Crescendo and Nexus system provides Media Prima with flexible I/O formats and synchronisation options, with the audio inputs able to be more than 1km away from the broadcast truck. To achieve loudness consistency, the console is also equipped with an RTW TM3 loudness monitoring system.
Officially commissioned at the end of 2015, the truck will be used to cover sporting events and live performances across Malaysia.
‘I am honoured and delighted by this further order of a Stagetec console, which happened immediately after the fixed installation of another Stagetec Crescendo in Glenmarie Studio Facility, Shah Alam,’ concluded Stagetec Asia sales director, Advon Tan.
