ORF Purchases HARMAN’s Soundcraft Vi1™ Consoles For Live Broadcasts

Österreichischer Rundfunk, the Austrian national public service broadcaster, has added a pair of HARMAN’s Soundcraft Vi1 digital consoles to its inventory. The order was placed with Soundcraft’s Austrian distributor Kain Audio by Landesstudio Tirol, one of nine regional studios operating under the ORF umbrella, after carrying out extensive tests against other brands. These will be used for live broadcasting, FOH mixing and recording purposes in the Innsbruck/Tirol region.

According to ORF tonmeister, Jürgen Brunner, the old set-up was desperately in need of upgrading. “We considered a number of different factors, such as price, size, quality and ease of use. We concluded that the Vi1 was the best concept for us, very easy to use, with the Widescreen Vistonics interface, and with no quality limitations.

Teer Engineering And HARMAN’s JBL CBT Series Loudspeakers Provide Unobtrusive Yet Expansive Sound At St. James Cathedral

When the time came for St. James Cathedral to upgrade its sound reinforcement system, John Teer of Teer Engineering had a specific design objective: the loudspeakers had to blend into the church’s interior, but without any compromises in performance. To meet the audio and aesthetic needs of the Orlando, Florida house of worship, Teer selected HARMAN’s JBL CBT Series column speakers.

Aesthetics was “a huge part of the project,? Teer said. “The church wanted a high-quality sound system that was state-of-the-art but easy to use–and the technology had to be visually unobtrusive.?

“Before we were involved in the project, the initial system design called for big, tour-grade line array clusters hanging right in the middle of the sanctuary, which was unnecessary,? noted Teer, whose Orlando-based firm designed and installed the upgraded audio system.

“The church needed a sound system for spoken word only, and the church’s pipe more
