Canada’s largest broadcaster, CBC Radio, has installed a Euphonix System 5 in their Radio Music Mobile, adding to the network’s existing System 5 and Max Air consoles.
Previously using a 48 input in-line analog console, the Network was finding it hard to do all of the work required from their mobile unit. Selecting a digital console such as the System 5 provided the flexibility they needed, as well as access to a much larger amount of inputs in a small footprint.
The Euphonix System 5 on the mobile has already been used for the recording of the Canadian premier modern opera, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” based on Margaret Atwood’s award-winning novel and for the CBC Television production of the Canadian Urban Music Awards. The console will be used for many other productions, including the Canadian Songwriter’s Hall of Fame inductions and the East Coast Music Awards. CBC’s Toronto Radio Mobile is used for well over 100 recording projects and broadcasts each year.
