We like sharing announcements from Radio World’s Who’s Buying What column partly because it gives us a chance to peek into various new radio facilities.
The console manufacturer says the station chose a Ruby on-air console and Power Core DSP mixing engine for their recently completed air studio. Lawo provided the photos shown at bottom of this story.
The studio is used for pre-production and as an on-air backup. Consulting, construction and installation of the hardware and studio furnishings were provided by system integrator SLG Broadcast AG.

The flush-mounted console has a split-frame setup with a 12-fader main mixing surface for DJs and a four-fader module for in-studio newscasters; this lets presenters work independently and at the same time. MADI connects the new studio with two existing rooms, currently equipped with Lawo sapphire consoles. And a mobile studio setup in three flight cases includes a 12-fader ruby with Power Core.
The studios are in Biel, southwest of Bern. Canal 3 broadcasts on two frequencies in Bern and Solothurn; it’s a bilingual private station that went on the air in 1984, supplying content for Swiss German- and French-speaking listeners. It broadcasts with DAB+ on SwissMediaCast and C3F on Digris.
