AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands — At IBC 2012, HARMAN’s Studer is introducing CMS Lite, the new, cost-effective telephone system solution for broadcasters. CMS Lite serves from a single studio up to multiple studio installations and integrates perfectly with Studer’s range of OnAir consoles, making call-ins easier to manage in the studio.

CMS Lite uses state-of-the-art technology and allows the installation of a flexible and scalable phone system. CMS lite profits from renowned and powerful technology, already proven in various large broadcast environments with more than 100 users.

Because CMS Lite uses off-the-shelf standard IT components, it is very cost-effective, requiring less installation labor, less cabling and providing a high return on investment. CMS Lite also helps save costs by moving away from old-fashioned, proprietary telephone hybrids.

CMS Lite retains much of the functionality of the large CMS System, including DJ Self-op, switchboard operator and producer modes, waiting rooms and database support.

For example, an external caller is first put into a waiting room. The caller’s number is automatically displayed; his name may be saved in the database, together with some additional information. If that person should call again, this information will be immediately displayed.

After a first, introductory talk the screener can drag-and-drop the caller to the studio where he immediately appears in the fader area of the console. The DJ can talk to the caller and bring him on-air at a single touch.

Outside calls can also be made by using either the on-screen keypad or the short-cut buttons for the telephone directory integrated in the database.

The CMS Lite system can start small, but may be extended later into an enterprise-wide server/client based system. If more operators are required to act in the background, more clients can be installed. If higher quality is desired, an optional codec can be added.

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – At NAB this year, HARMAN’s Studer will show how efficiently it can control newsroom playout or production automation systems with its full range of broadcast consoles, demonstrating the expanded integration of the Ember protocol into Studer Vista consoles at booth C2619 in addition to the existing inclusion in Studer’s OnAir range of consoles.

The Ember protocol provides seamless integration of Studer Vista and OnAir series consoles with 3rd-party broadcast control systems & newsroom production automation systems. Such a workflow enables broadcasters to add and expand newscasting without adding overheads in newsroom operations, and improves workflow and newsgathering ability while retaining the ability to go to manual override for breaking news.

“Supporting the networking and routing needs of broadcasters is nothing new for us at Studer,” said Katy Templeman-Holmes, Marketing Manager for Studer in the USA. “Some of the world’s largest broadcasters have trusted Studer for over a decade to manage the integrity of their network operations with the Route 3000, Route 6000, Pro-Bel and now we will further support broadcasters’ needs with the integration of Ember.”

Ember is a control protocol implementation that allows many audio console settings to be controlled over TCP/IP, in addition to the Pro-Bel SW-P-08 protocol that is supported already. An additional bonus to broadcast is Ember’s ability to support multi-connection setups, making it an excellent choice for installations requiring redundancy.
Ember connectivity allows the external equipment to transfer signal labels, and to control input channel gains, solo, mutes, plus AUX send levels and mutes, along with N-X (mix-minus) bus levels and mutes. Master channel levels and mutes can also be addressed along with Group and Aux master channels.

EMBER control is available across the range of Studer consoles, including the new compact OnAir 1500 console, so it can be used from large-scale public broadcast situations to small local stations according to budget.

EMBER will be shown with the Vista 5 series of consoles on the HARMAN Studer booth C2619 at the NAB show, in addition to the showcase of Studer’s five other new products being launched at the show. The new Vista 1 Compact will also support EMBER, in turn presenting a robust all-in-one solution for broadcasters looking to cost-effectively consolidate their studio operations.

StuderBRUSSELS, Belgium — Heynen, a professional supplier of media processing applications, has announced a multi-year agreement with RTBF (Radio télévision belge de la communauté française) for the supply and integration of Studer audio mixing consoles for the radio studios of Brussels, Liege and Charleroi.

This agreement confirms the leading role of Heynen which has represented Studer for almost 50 years, in supplying multiple Studer consoles to the Benelux broadcasters, in this case for coverage in the French-speaking part of Belgium. Once the project is completed, all RTBF studios will be equipped with Studer mixing consoles.

The Belgian broadcasting organization 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 Liège can easily take over a program in Brussels or Mons,” Neybusch noted.

“The innovations Studer brings to its consoles fit seamlessly into the workflow developed by RTBF,” he continued. “Our audio engineers and production team are happy with the choice of OnAir consoles because they love working with them. The intuitive user interface ensures that they are free to concentrate on production, requiring less manpower—particularly in ‘DJ self-op’ mode.”

Another important consideration in favoring the Studer platform was the local support that Heynen provides. “Audio consoles have evolved into complex systems with hardware and software elements and since Studer audio mixing consoles are also modular, no two systems are identical. This requires specialist support from an organization with expertise that can provide incremental software updates and implement full backup procedures,” states Heynen managing director, Jos Jorissen.

Serge Neybusch concludes: “We have had long experience with Studer audio mixers and have shared our experiences with Heynen over a long period. We are particularly pleased with the flexibility and technical support they offer.”
