Russia’s Channel One Doubles Up on Avid System 5

Channel One is Russia's largest and most popular television channel, reaching a remarkable 98.8% of Russia's population and covering four time zones with 65 hours of news programs per week. Broadcasting since 1995, Channel One offers a diverse array of programming, including news, documentaries, talk shows, feature films, game shows, and sports.

Implement a highly efficient, seamless digital workflow

Channel One installed two Avid System 5-B digital audio mixing systems in their new state-of-the-art broadcast complex located in the Ostankino Television Technical Centre in Moscow. Spearheading the transition of the renovated news facilities was Okno TV, a leader in systems integration and the biggest supplier in Russia’s professional television, film and broadcast equipment market. Okno TV was able to design a migration plan that digitalized the entire news production process and built a highly efficient, seamless digital workflow.

"After much high-level research Channel One selected the System 5-B for the new complex because we feel it illustrates the technological sophistication of our facility,” says Anton Philippov, Director Deputy of Information Services Channel One. "We chose the System-5B because of its intuitive control surface, direct access to signal adjustment parameters and ease of operation. Moreover the 100% redundancy of the DSP and router system makes the console irreplaceable for Channel One's production needs."

The broadcast facility is comprised of two identical studios, featuring matching 56-fader, 130-channel System 5-B consoles in their fully redundant form with Modular I/O racks. Each news studio shares a common main studio to accommodate a large number of outside sources feeding in from the various regions of the country as well as internationally.

Designed with the high-end broadcaster in mind

The System 5-B is specifically designed with the high-end broadcaster in mind. Its DF66 DSP SuperCore offers a failsafe system that ensures seamless streaming audio in the event of a disruption. Lightweight and compact, the DF66 is the primary signal-processing engine and router for System 5 and is comprised of a system board and up to six plug-in DSP cards. From live broadcasts to TV production, Avid has a range of flexible and modular digital audio mixing solutions, from 32 to over 400 channels that can be tailored to exactly meet the needs of any broadcast facility.
