betevé

Spanish broadcaster betevé has equipped its main TV Studios 1 and 2 (news and general production) with a Solid State Logic System T broadcast audio production environment, specified and supplied by SSL Spanish partner Zentralmedia.

betevé is the local, publicly-owned broadcaster serving the metropolitan area of Barcelona with TV channels, radio, and on line. It began broadcasting in 1994 and has a reputation as a progressive broadcaster, in strategy, in content, and in technology. The station’s latest jump forward has been the installation of System T into Studios 1 and 2, with two System T S300 32-fader consoles being deployed in each all connected via a redundant Dante Audio-over-IP network.

‘First, we chose System T for its audio quality,’ says Jordi Colom, Director tècnic i d’innovació (Technical and Innovation Director). ‘We wanted an AoIP system that was easy to manage – so it could be run by audio engineers, not system engineers. The initial installation and set-up was quick and easy, and now we can change from one studio set-up to the next one in a matter of seconds.’

Studio 1 (news) will be broadcasting general news programmes and interview features; the general production studio content ranges from Sports and culture panels to live music shows.

Each control room has a System T S300 32-fader control surface and an SSL Network I/O A16.D16 (analogue and digital I/O to network). There are two System T T25 Tempest Audio Engines in the machine room, each capable of processing up to 256 fully processed paths at 48kHz. Two Network I/O: Madi-Bridge units take care of connecting the new networked system to existing Madi infrastructure at the studio.

Stage 1 at betevé has a mobile stagebox with an SSL SB32.24 stagebox (32 mic/line inputs, 16 analogue line outputs, eight digital inputs, dual redundant Dante connections), while Studio 2 has two SSL SB8.8 stageboxes (eight analogue in and out, dual redundant Dante connections each).

The whole system uses a redundant Dante (AES67, SMPTE 2110) AoIP network to connect everything everywhere, for ultimate flexibility across both TV stages. This employs COTS (Common off-the-Shelf) network hardware, such as Cisco network switches and Cat6/fibre connectivity, for high-capacity audio routing, instead of costly, product-specific TDM routing systems.

The SSL System T S300 is a fixed layout control surface in 16+1 and now 32+1 fader versions that can be combined with any System T network objects (control, Network I/O, and processing engines), as part of a larger installation, or in stand-alone configurations for smaller broadcast facilities or OB. It also includes integrated, arbitrated audio and control resource sharing for SSL’s Network I/O range across SSL’s Tempest platform-based consoles: S500, S300, TCR and SSL Live (L500 Plus, L300 and L200).
