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!

Crown

ELKHART, Indiana — In a move that immediately upgrades its sound reinforcement capabilities, leading Dutch sound rental company, Story Sound, has purchased a battery of over 70 HARMAN Crown I-Tech HD series amplifiers.

Outdoor Speaker Depot Appears on NBC’s Today Show

NBC’s Today’s Home featured outdoorspeakerdepot.com on a recent episode of Today’s Home. George Oliphant (host of Open House and George to the Rescue) addressed ways to build a great outdoor living area without spending a lot of money and showcased OSD rock, tree trunk, and birdhouse speakers.

According to OSD, popularity of backyard entertainment is growing as people finally realize that outdoor speakers can come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. “Gone are the days where outdoor speakers looked primarily all the same,” says Chris Mirsch, product specialist at OSD. “We disguise out speakers as rocks, frogs, fish, birdhouses, vases, even German Shepherds and tree stumps.”

These clever shapes, says OSD, give users more freedom when placing speakers outside as they serve as both a sound source and decorative ornament—a big plus for couples with opposing aesthetic tastes.
