Malaysia:

The Malaysian government broadcast training centres – Institut Penyiaran & Penerangan Tun Abdul Razak or IPPTAR) – have been providing professional courses in TV, radio and media broadcasting for RTM employees since the 1970s. Hosting musical events, the multipurpose hall – Dewan Cendekiawan – was recently refurbished. Having served RTM Studio 2 for over 10 years, a 24-fader Stagetec Aurus console has been relocated to this newly refurbished venue. The console may retain the same cosmetic layout to its technical operators, but appearances can be deceptive as Stagetec Asia has extensively updated the feature set with the latest firmware download.

From the control interface of the Aurus, a 7.1 surround sound mix can now be applied. To maintain even audio distribution throughout the venue, the Aurus can also manage and control other networked parameters, including microphones, signal processing, amplification and loudspeakers. Parallel compression has been added as a further operating mode for the existing compressor. Primarily used as a FOH or monitoring console, the mobile Aurus is also used for training purposes from time to time.

Also out of sight, the addition of Nexus and Nexus Star audio distribution networks serve to further enhance smooth operations and audio control configurations within the hall. In addition, Stagetec Asia has supplied a Zenon Media Cart Wall into the audio control room, allowing instantaneous playback of audio files through the Aurus console.

“Having successfully completed the first phase of the project, we are currently preparing for the second phase of the integration,” commented Stagetec Asia technical director, Tong Sing Leong. “These works will include Dante AoIP connectivity together with multitrack recording. Having completed this phase within a tight time frame, our team focused on fulfilling our client’s exact specifications and requirements. Open communications and a full appreciation of IPPTAR’s evolving working practices serve to strengthen our working relationship with their team.”
