With the opening of its new headquarters in the Seoul, South Korea, Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS) has equipped its facility with additional D950 and Vista 7 consoles from Studer’s exclusive distributor, DYC Dong Yang Trading Co., which also handled the technical backup. One of the three major national South Korean television networks, SBS now has a total of nine D950M2 and five Vista 7 studio consoles.

The latest installation took place in the broadcaster’s new 27-story facility, which boasts a staff of 2,300. The facility aims to provide HDTV facilities and two additional studios for TV and radio production within an all-digital infrastructure.

The new building provides 126 broadcasting facilities and news automation systems, with all control rooms designed for surround sound as well as HDTV production.

SBS has thus become the first all-digital broadcaster with full HDTV production facilities in Korea, transmitting in all-digital format for the first time through the Studer D950M2 mixing console system – located in studio TS7 – in March 2004.

The TS7 Main TV Production Room also contains a Studer D950M2 for sound effects. The other studios include the TS3 Main TV Relay Sports Room (two D950M2s for main mix and submix), TS4 News Center (two D950M2s for main mix and submix), SBS Film Dubbing 1 (Vista 7), SBS Film Dubbing 2 (two Vista 7s), and SBS Effects Room (Vista 7).
