France 24 Upgrades With Trio Of Vista 5s

International news and current affairs TV station, France 24, has purchased three Studer Vista 5 consoles — all of which have been installed over the past two past months.

The Paris-based channel was launched in December 2006 to broadcast French news throughout the world in French, English and Arabic. It immediately became so successful that today it broadcasts 24 hours a days in French and English, and ten hours a day in Arabic (with Spanish due to be added shortly).

Since the complexity of multiple translations was making operation more and more difficult, France 24 decided to replace its three on-air consoles with Vista 5s, placing the order through Studer’s French distributors, Audiopole.

Jean-Philippe Blanchard, Director of the Broadcast Division at Audiopole, confirmed, “France 24 was being expected to handle more and more mix minus signals and simultaneous translations — and it was a nightmare (more…)

(Billerica, Massachusetts)- When the Westlake High School Chaparrals open their football season on Aug. 28, the contest will be produced in high definition using its new Broadcast Pix™ Slate™ 5016Ghh integrated production system. The only high school in the Eanes Independent School District in Austin, Texas, Westlake recently upgraded its video production capabilities as part of a renovation of the school’s 25-year-old Westlake Community Performing Arts Center (PAC).

At football games, student members of the Westlake Technical Entertainment Crew handle all production aspects of the game coverage, from pulling cables to directing the show. Westlake students had been working with a makeshift control room setup at the stadium built around an old analog switcher and a basic graphics system. All video inserts, from bumps to commercials, were fed via a DVD player.

“It was pretty clumsy,? recalled David Poole, managing director of the PAC. “We were looking for (more…)
