Yamaha Delivers Flexibility For Telegraaf TV
amaha digital consoles boast
remarkable quality and ﬂexibility
at low cost, as proved by a new
Yamaha broadcast installation for
the Telegraaf Media Groep (TMG).
TMG publishes the Netherlands
most popular newspaper De
Telegraaf, as well as regional
newspapers, magazines, web sites
and has signiﬁcant interests in radio
and television broadcasting.
In-house production company
Telegraaf TV has just moved into
a brand new studio in TMG’s main
Amsterdam building to produce
online news content.
Built by broadcast technology
provider DutchView, a Yamaha
NED: At IBC, Avid unveiled its
modular S6 control surface for
sound recording, mixing and editing.
The S6 aims to provide a state-ofthe-art solution that easily scales to
meet current and future challenges.
Built on the same proven
technology in the ICON and
System 5 product families,
the Avid S6 enables mixers to
turn around complex projects.
It can control multiple Pro
Tools and other EUCON-enabled
DAWs over Ethernet enabling
network collaboration on a single
O1V96i digital console and DUGANMY16 auto mic mixing card has
satisﬁed the need for high quality
on a very tight budget.
The new facility features two
studios with a combined control
room, where every day ﬁve different
programmes are recorded and then
broadcast on TMG’s news web site.
“It is a challenge to produce
HD-quality television on a very
low budget,” says editor Rick de
Graaff. “For example we have no
real technicians – during recording
sessions we work with a director,
an editor, a remote camera operator
and somebody from the production
department who operates sound.”
Supplied by De Grooth Audio
Service, the O1V96 and DUGANMY16 combination was chosen
because it provides everything
Telegraaf TV needs.

sounds or invent brand new ones.
Nectar 2 can add character
to tracks with modelled plate
reverb, harmonic saturation, and
