AURUS platinum for German public broadcasters’ media academy
Nuremberg, Germany, June 2019: Stage Tec, the Berlin-based manufacturer of professional audio technology, has upgraded the AURUS mixing system at German public broadcasters ARD and ZDF medienakademie to AURUS platinum. The console has 40 faders and is embedded in a NEXUS network with a router and four Base Devices. NEXUS has been equipped with the latest components, such as the RIF67 router interface for Ravenna and the powerful RMDQ audio DSP unit for resource-intensive productions.
Since 2006, the ARD.ZDF medienakademie (at that time still the School of Broadcasting Technology) has had an AURUS-NEXUS mixing system available for seminars and advanced training courses. The hardware and software were brought up to date in order to be able to continue delivering the practical training.
The ARD.ZDF medienakademie is a not-for-profit limited company and offers seminars for all specialisms in journalism and media production. There are also courses in technology, leadership, personal skills, communication and marketing – open to everyone. The training centres in Nuremberg and Hanover host over 2,400 seminars every year on around 600 topics.
