RTÉ Radio Adds Its 19th Studer OnAir 3000

When Ireland’s national broadcaster, RTÉ Radio upgraded its Studio 10 sports studio recently, it took the network’s tally of Studer OnAir 3000 digital consoles to 19. While 10 are located in the main RTE campus, one occupies an RTE studio in a nearby shopping centre, and the other eight are distributed over five regional studio centres.

The broadcaster’s relationship with Studer extends back many years to the A80 tape machines, which were in use in RTÉ Radio for many years, and over the past six years they have systematically upgraded all the main radio studios, replacing various analogue consoles with the OnAir 3000 series — Studio 10 being the last in line.

RTÉ Radio’s resident studio guru, Seamus Power, drew up the initial list of requirements for the new desk and the contract for the installation was awarded to local company, Audiohead Ltd, who have extensive experience more

Oxygen DCT Launches New Colour Calibration Service For The Broadcast and Post Production Industry

Oxygen DCT has launched a new service to help broadcasters and post production facilities re-align and maintain LCD picture monitors with the correct broadcast colourimetry.

Picture monitors ‘drift’ from factory settings and need re-calibration because significant differences between the brightness and colour temperature of a group of monitors in a stack can be both irritating and tiring on the eyes. In the case of Grade One monitors, which are used for high-grade ‘reference’ assessment of picture quality, post production and transmission, poor alignment can lead to problems with quality control if broadcast engineers can’t tell if the monitor is at fault or the incoming signal.

Oxygen DCT’s new Colour Calibration Service aims to rectify the problem by re-aligning monitors and ensuring they comply with ITU Recommendation ITU-R709, which defines the sampling systems, matrix values and filter characteristics for both Y, B-Y, R-Y and RGB high definition component digital more
