STAGETEC audio technology for SBT Brazil

São Paulo, Brazil, March 2019: The Brazilian TV station SBT, headquartered in São Paulo, is currently having part of its technology renewed by the Berlin-based manufacturer STAGETEC. So far, three audio mixing consoles have been delivered: A 32-fader CRESCENDO platinum was installed in a live studio for sound reinforcement. The music broadcasts and talk shows from this studio are mixed by a second 24-fader CRESCENDO platinum in the control room. Connected to the third console, a 24-fader AURATUS, are various external devices that add special effects to the mixes. The AURATUS used here was specially adapted to the customer's needs. STAGETEC is known for producing individually customized consoles as well. For SBT, a size-optimized version of AURATUS was constructed due to spatial requirements.

SBT chose STAGETEC because the broadcasts are very demanding due to the large amount of live content, and the audio technology from Berlin is known for its reliability," explains Pierre Maquea of the SDLive team, STAGETEC's Brazilian distributor. "Other important features that spoke in favor of STAGETEC products were the option to split the microphone input signals throughout the system without affecting the splits, the high routing capacity, the extremely low latency and excellent phase correlation, and the system expansion possibilities."

The three consoles are integrated into an audio network that was also part of the delivery. It consisted of four NEXUS Base Devices and two routers. One NEXUS router was installed in the studio and the second is located in a technical room, connecting two studios.

SBT uses STAGETEC's latest installation primarily to produce a daily live entertainment show for children and news broadcasts.

STAGETEC has already realized several projects at SBT. For example, in 2013, just before the World Cup, the main production control rooms were renewed with three custom-made CRESCENDO and ON AIR 24 consoles each.
