Radio Svizzera Italiana—part of Swiss Public Broadcaster SRG—recently installed one of the largest Studer OnAir 5000 systems to date in its Lugano studios.

The system comprises a master control room (pictured) with a Studer Route 5000 switcher and five on-air/production studios with OnAir 5000 consoles, as well as a single Studer Vista 7 digital production console for post-production. The broadcaster operates three networks using Studer DigiMedia playout systems, while a remote news studio for parliamentary reports uses a Studer 928 analog console.

According to Andrea Lurati, Radio Svizzera Italiana’s engineering and technical support manager, the primary requirement for an on-air mixer and router system was reliability. “This is the highest priority,” he says. “No interruptions, no emergencies.”

Studer’s OnAir 5000 consoles, the largest model in Studer’s radio console line, incorporate all of the “typical Studer on-air functions" such as MPX (Studer’s unique multiway conferencing system) with the usual monitoring and talkback facilities.
