World Premiere: MEDIAGROUP Announces New On-Air Console for Radio Broadcasting

The SALZBRENNER STAGETEC MEDIAGROUP can be found in Hall 8, booth C 80

At this year’s IBC in Amsterdam, SALZBRENNER STAGETEC MEDIAGROUP will present a real innovation at their booth (Hall 8, C 80). A compact and intuitive radio broadcasting console for self-op use by STAGETEC from Berlin!
STAGETEC will also present a new system called NEXUS Server, which is used to optimise NEXUS in master-control-room applications. Designed in close cooperation with BFE, NEXUS Server integrates tightly with KSC Manager, BFE’s MCR control system. KSC Manager is to be found in a large number of broadcast MCRs in Germany and many other countries.

The STAGETEC ON AIR 24 console

The STAGETEC ON AIR 24 console consists, from the operator’s perspective, of very compact fader panels, each with four faders, plus a monitor panel. The interface was designed specifically to ensure quick and accurate operation. A GUI-based PC software application enables the technical supervisor to prepare and support self-op use in the best possible way.

On the hardware side, the STAGETEC ON AIR 24 console is similar to the STAGETEC AURATUS compact mixing console in that it relies on the NEXUS audio router. NEXUS not only provides the I/O interfaces but also acts as host to the mixing-console processing board. Thanks to this proven design, the new mixing console offers the same degree of exceptional audio quality, reliability and easy integration familiar to users of other STAGETEC products including the large AURUS, CRESCENDO, and AURATUS consoles.

The NEXUS Server

The NEXUS Server enables event-based routing to be set up. The operator configures the Server in advance using a graphical user interface or by filling in a table. The programmed routing actions are then performed automatically at the exact preconfigured time. The more complex the MCR tasks are, the greater the benefits which can be achieved by employing a system with a NEXUS Server and the KSC Manager.

Hessischer Rundfunk at Frankfurt (Germany) is running the first NEXUS Server installation in a radio environment. It is a large router network comprised of four separate NEXUS networks each with two NEXUS Servers which are configured as a master system with a redundant slave system. At the IBC, STAGETEC will show an emulation of this set-up for demonstration purposes at the MEDIAGROUP booth (Hall 8, C 80). In addition, an example of a typical TV installation is on display at the BFE booth (Hall 12, B 10).
