The Management and System Engineering Department of the Serbian Broadcasting Corporation, also known as the Radio-Televizija Srbije (RTS), recently upgraded audio systems in five of its studios. Local integrator Amisys helped them to acquire Lawo mc²56 mixing systems.
RTS is the largest broadcaster in the former Yugoslavia and the Balkans and airs news, drama and sports over the radio, television and online. Its studios are in Belgrade and the city’s suburbs.
“Three studios in the city center are mostly used for live production, news, talk shows and political shows,” said RTS System Engineer for Audio Technologies Mirjana Mihajlovic. “The two studios in the suburb building are mostly used for music shows, postproduction and entertainment programs.”
For the Belgrade studios RTS chose 24 mic/line inputs, 16 line inputs, 16 line outputs, 32 AES/EBU inputs and 32 AES/EBU outputs. The broadcaster also needed an adequate routing system, high-quality DSP and a high level of redundancy.
The studios in the suburbs required 48 mic/line inputs, 24 line inputs, 24 line outputs, 48 AES/EBU inputs and 48 AES/EBU outputs.
