RTV Slovenia Equips New OB Trucks With Studer Vista 5 Digital Consoles

studer_slovenia.jpgRTV Slovenia (Radio-Television Slovenia), the country’s public, non-profit radio and television broadcaster, has commissioned two radio OB trucks for musical recordings, equipped with Studer Vista 5 digital consoles. Supplied by Studer’s local distributors, AVC Group, the turnkey installation was overseen by the company’s subsidiary system integration operation, TSE.

Both AVC and TSE have enjoyed a close relationship with RTV Slovenia stretching back 15 years, although procurement still had to be implemented through public tender. RTV Slovenia has a long history of using Studer platforms — particularly Radio Slovenia in Ljubljana with both regional centres in Koper and Maribor mainly equipped with Studer radio consoles (OnAir 1000, OnAir 2000, OnAir 2500 and OnAir 3000), and Studer Route 5000 routers. more

In fact, the Studer pedigree is so popular in the Czech Republic that when the private station TV Prima (the country’s third largest) was ready to decommission its analogue desk, which was regularly breaking down, the choice was self-evident. Studer would not only provide a reliable digital upgrade with long term expansion possibilities, but the station knew its engineers would require no training. more
