Studio 10 project. RTE Radio.

--------------------

Studio 10 in RTE is the main studio used for larger programs. One of its main duties, week to week, is the weekend sports program on Radio 1 where the studio links up with numerous OBs in Ireland, UK and further afield.

This is the studio with the largest outside source capability in Ireland. Only studio 10 is capable of dealing with broadcasts such as general election coverage and budget programs which are heavily reliant on numerous OBs simultaneously. The studio also has full talkback facilities from the engineer and producer to the talent in the studio and all the possible OBs, phones and ISDN lines.

When the studio was in the planning stages the initial layout and design was in 2d CAD format. While this format gave a good indication of the area it would occupy, it didn't give a fully understanding of how the new system would integrate with the existing facility. We provided a full 3d model of the studio to allow the customer see how the new setup would look.

Using Autocad we can create movies of a realistic walkthrough of the space which has proven very popular. Click here for a movie of an earlier version.

Studio 10 was fitted with a Studer On Air 3000. This was the last of the studio upgrades featuring this console. To date we have installed 14 On Air 3000s.

The Studer installed into studio 10 was unique in the fact that it used the higher powered 'Live Core'. The requirement for the live core was brought about because the studio would require 36 X N-x (cleanfeeds) from the desk. The standard core has 16. The live core also gave the option of audio groups which prove very useful for large discussion panel shows.

--------------------

The installation employs the RTE standard of all analogue audio I/O going through a fully jumpered krone system and P.O 316 jackfields. This prove invaluable for fault finding and future modification.

Custom brushed aluminium surrounds were provided by RTE to house the Studer fader and monitoring modules. These surrounds also angle the modules towards the engineer.
