Soundcraft Vi6/Vi4 Forms Hub Of New-Look Rock City

Now approaching its 30th year, Nottingham-based Rock City — originally set up by Director George Akins, and today probably the UK’s longest-surviving independent venue — has commissioned a brand new sound and lighting infrastructure.

NOTTINGHAM, England — To keep pace with modern tour riders, and the growing move by the medium-sized venue market to offer bands the opportunity to leave their production in the truck, visiting sound engineers can now mix their acts through premium Soundcraft 64-channel Vi6 at front-of-house and 48-channel Vi4 at the monitor position.

The desks were chosen by the venue’s technical manager Dave McVea, and installed by the SSE Audio Group installation project team, led by Alex Penn and Steve Dando.

Ironically it was Alex’s father John who came through the club on its opening night in December 1980 when he was providing tour support for the Undertones (who were booked as more

Canadian Television Station TFO Employs Studer Vista 5 For Live Production

For the past two years, French-language Canadian educational public television network TFO has relied on a Studer Vista 5 console for its live production needs. TFO is a one-studio shop, with all of its productions coming from the same control room, producing children’s programming, teen programming and news-style shows. In 2007, TFO embarked on an initiative to run autonomously from TVOntario. Conveniently, this decision coincided with TFO’s preparation for digital and HD broadcast, with the goal of functioning completely tapeless. With a new location, new studio, new control rooms and edit suites, the need for new (digital) equipment was apparent.

As a member of the committee called upon to select a console for the new studio, Andy Gargul of TFO had a laundry list of criteria. “We really wanted to stay away from any console that was heavily ‘menu-driven’ or had master soft knobs in one area for more

C4, RedBee and Grand Central Studios are among a growing number of broadcast and post production facilities that are choosing DK-Technologies’ Loudness software to evaluate audio levels on commercials and idents in line with the latest recommendations from the Broadcast Committee on Advertising Standards (BCAP).

BCAP’s guidelines, which were published last year, advise broadcasters to look at the audio levels on commercials and idents following audience complaraja-sehgal-of-grand-central-with-dk-loudness-metering-compressed.jpgints that they are often too loud.

At a recent briefing held at Grand Central Studios in London, 30 members of the UK Screen Association heard how C4, its sister channels and channels such as Dave, Bravo, Living and Virgin 1 that more
