Public Bavarian broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR) has upgraded two of its studios with Aurus and Nexus installations from Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup. The new consoles replace first generation Cantus desks, previously installed by Stagetec. Both studios are used for very diverse applications – ranging from jazz, chamber music and solo recordings to folk music and pop – and offer plenty of space for concerts such as the annual on3 Festival, organised by BR. A striking feature of both control rooms is their orientation. The Aurus consoles are installed facing away from the large glass windows that overlook the studios. This allowed for a larger console area, as well as the installation of a Geithain 5.1 monitoring system. This latest install builds on a long history between BR and Stagetec. The station took delivery of its first Cantus console in 1995. During the next few years, BR purchased another six consoles for BR radio plus another five Cantus for BR TV. Many of those systems are in use still today and have been adapted to increased requirements by adding new Nexus components. Apart from the latest installations in Studio 1 and Studio 2, BR now operates a total of five Aurus consoles alongside its Cantus desks. A large Nexus system comprising four STARs and a large number of Base Devices will shortly be put into operation at the new TV broadcasting premises in Freimann. www.stagetec.com
