Genelec monitors recently completed the renovation of a Radio and Television of Slovkia’s (RTVS) studios in Bratislava.

The broadcasting facility benefitted from a Genelec 5.1 system in its Slovak Radio Studio 2 control room, while other RTVS editing rooms, studios and outside broadcast videos now feature Genelec products.

The projects represent the latest stage in a long relationship between Genelec and its regional partner, Centron Slovakia.

“There were already a number of sound engineers within RTVS who had experience with Genelec,” Genelec brand manager Richard Varkonda explains. “They recognised Genelec products as reference point for their facility. The chief sound engineer Lubos Valky decided that Genelec was the best brand for them, and so they chose my design.”

The control room is now equipped with a 5.1 SAM system based on three-way 1238AC front channels and 1237A rear channels, plus a pair of 7271 subwoofers. The room is also distinguished as the only RTVS facility with monitors flush mounted into the walls.

“It is now the most powerful monitoring system within the RTVS building,” added Varkonda.

“Slovakia is a culturally very strong, especially when it comes to music and symphony orchestras, so the work that Richard has been doing for Genelec is very important,” said Genelec sales manager for Eastern Europe and Russia, Jukka Latva-Hakuni. “We are privileged to work closely with Centron Slovakia and with Richard, both designing these wonderful rooms and guiding the projects from their starting point to their completion. I look forward to another decade of great projects in Slovakia.”
