Channel 7 Perth’s news control room has been introduced to a Soundcraft Vi6 large-format digital live desk from Jands .
Key features of the Vi6 large-format digital live desks available from Jands include:
- Ease of operation of the digital consoles is aided by use of colour and holes drilled in the monitor so that the knobs were linked to what is being looked at
- The fact that everything is only one or two levels down on the digital consoles at most is very helpful
- The digital consoles sound good, the sound of the Vi6 large-format digital live desks described as being warm with good dynamics and EQ
- Very intuitive- A fourth generation digital console
Whilst Graham operates the Vi6 digital consoles for the news reports Monday through to Friday, a range of freelance operators are in charge at the weekend.The freelance operators are experienced but may only be doing the news once or twice a month so it is important to have an intuitive digital console. The casuals only needed two sessions each of a staged installation for the Vi6 training before they were comfortable with the operation of the console.
