Stage Tec AURATUS and NEXUS for the Bernama News Channel in Malaysia
Stagetec Asia, the Malaysian subsidiary of Berlin-based manufacturer Stage Tec, has completed a project for the TV station Bernama News Channel (BNC). Two AURATUS platinum and a NEXUS network with two Base Devices were installed at the BNC headquarters in Kuala Lumpur. BNC broadcasts local and international news about politics, business, sports, entertainment and lifestyle 24 hours a day, and is part of the national Malaysian news agency Bernama.
The Stage Tec equipment is installed in two new production studios for live news broadcasts and shows. The two AURATUS platinum each have 24 faders. The consoles are compact and ideal for predefined workflows in radio and TV productions. The AURATUS consoles are integrated into the NEXUS network and can access a wide range of analogue and digital formats, including MADI, SDI, Dante-over-IP, A/D converters and AES67.
"AURATUS platinum best met the Bernama News Channel's requirements. The console is optimised for fast and intuitive operation. All relevant channel functions needed in broadcast productions are within easy reach. AURATUS platinum is ideal for smaller and simpler TV and radio applications," explains Advon Tan, Managing Director of Stagetec Asia. Sulaiman Salleh, sound engineer for the Bernama News Channel adds, "The mixing consoles run without any problems and we are looking forward to using them in our studios."
