CBC/Radio-Canada Upgrades Its Montreal Broadcast Facilities With Four HARMAN Studer Vista 1 Consoles

MONTREAL, Canada – CBC/Radio-Canada is Canada’s national public broadcaster and one of its largest cultural institutions. The Corporation is a leader in reaching Canadians on new platforms and delivers a comprehensive range of radio, television, Internet and satellite-based services. Beginning in July 2013 and continuing through 2014, CBC/Radio-Canada’s Montreal facility is undertaking an upgrade of its broadcast studios, including the purchase and installation of four HARMAN Studer Vista 1 digital mixing consoles, a Route 6000 routing and signal processing system, three Vista Compact Remote Bays and interfacing equipment. The consoles were sold through Studer distributor Soundcraft Canada.

Three 32-fader Vista 1 consoles and one 22-fader console are being installed in four separate control rooms in the Montreal video production studios: CDI Control Room 1, CDI Control Room 2, CBMT (which broadcasts English-language news) and CDI Control Room 3, which will employ the 22-fader console. Each console is configured with eight AES pairs in, eight AES pairs out, 32 mic/line in and 32 line out (including monitoring).

All four consoles will be connected to a central control room that will house a Studer Route 6000 router, seven Studer D21m high-density audio interface systems and a Studer D21 MasterSync clock. The Route 6000 can accommodate up to 1,728 x 1,728 inputs and outputs. It is fully modular and can handle a variety of formats including mic, line, AES/EBU, MADI, ADAT, TDIF, SDI and Dolby® E. An additional D21m will be located in the CMBT control room.

The consoles and components will be connected using Studer’s RELINK Resource Linking I/O Sharing System, which links together Studer consoles in various locations in a broadcast facility to allow audio source and control data sharing across a wide network. The Route 6000 will allow all the console operators to directly access all shared sources via each Vista 1’s control screen display. The Route 6000 will also be controllable from Studer’s new X-Y Panel hardware control panel and from PC workstations running Studer’s Route 1000 software.

In addition, Studer Vista Compact Remote Bays will be installed in CDI News Room 1, CDI News Room 2 and the CMBT control room to provide added mixing flexibility. The Vista Compact Remote Bay is a small, foldable unit similar to a laptop that can be used as a slave or secondary console in parallel with the main console and operated away from the main console, or even outside of the control room.
