Studer has won a contract to supply 85 OnAir digital audio mixing consoles to BBC Radio over the next two years.


A proportion will be deployed in the rebuilt Portland Place HQ where more than 50 studios are to be built for use by the World Service and News divisions.

A further 25 OnAir consoles will be supplied to MediaCityUK in Salford for use on domestic radio services such as 5 Live.

Meanwhile, Studer has introduced a new modular version of the its OnAir 2500 Broadcast console for installation in custom studio furniture.

OnAir 2500 Modulo has separate modules for fader bays and master section, along with a rack-mountable mainframe which houses the power supply and host processing.

They can be recessed into a desktop for a clean installation with all cables integrated within the furniture and the mainframe hidden appropriately.
