Berlin Philharmonie Now 96kHz Thanks to Stage Tec
Studio 3 control room at the Berlin Philharmonie is where concerts given by the Berliner Philharmoniker in the big hall are recorded, mixed and broadcast live by radio stations. Now, Studio 3 has been upgraded to 96kHz operation and is now able to complete 5.1 productions with a higher channel and microphone count. The prerequisite for this was the renewal and expansion of the NEXUS audio network by Berlin-based manufacturer Stage Tec. In use since 2006, the NEXUS boards have been upgraded and were supplemented with current technologies such as Dante and AES67. Another NEXUS Base Device was added to the network, which now includes six Base Devices and a STAR router. The router is the focal point of the NEXUS audio network. Broadcasters can connect their recording devices here, directly via MADI. A 56-fader AURUS has been a fixture in Studio 3 for twelve years and is now equipped with seven powerful RMDQ DSP units for resource-intensive 96kHz operation.
An independent company based in Berlin, Germany, Stage Tec Entwicklungsgesellschaft für professionelle Audiotechnik GmbH has specialized in developing and manufacturing digital audio equipment. Its flagship products include the digital routers NEXUS and NEXUS STAR as well as the professional mixing consoles AURUS platinum, CRESCENDO platinum, AURATUS and ON AIR flex.
