BBC Northern Ireland Upgrades With Yamaha
BBC Northern Ireland has upgraded its dubbing studios with another Yamaha DM2000 digital mixing console, adding considerable flexibility to the facility. Broadcasting House, Belfast, features two dubbing areas - Dub1 and Dub2 - which have respectively featured Yamaha DM2000 and 02R96 digital consoles for the past five years. Used as post-production mixers, the Yamaha units were chosen for their mix automation, compressors, flexible routing, effects and, of course, exceptional reliability.
With the facility working on ever-more complex productions, Dub2 has now been upgraded with a DM2000 to match the facilities in Dub1, with Yamaha Studio Manager used to exchange mixes between the areas.
The new console was supplied by Aylesbury-based specialist Aspen Media, which has a long track record in supplying high quality technical systems to national and international broadcasters. "Supplying a second DM2000 was the ideal solution, as the BBC staff had a lot of experience with the existing two Yamaha consoles and it means both dubbing studios can now work on mixes to the same level of complexity," says Aspen Media Director Chris Collings. "It also allows for the seamless transfer of mixes between Dub1 and Dub 2, significantly increasing the facility's overall flexibility."
