Evertz and Studer bring audio into the IP realm with exciting new products

Studer Audio will be featured prominently on the Evertz booth at IBC 2022, where the company will highlight exciting additions and upgrades to this celebrated product line. Studer has been an iconic audio brand for over 70 years, with Vista digital mixing consoles found in the control rooms of the world’s most prestigious and modern broadcast facilities.

Over the past few months, Evertz has focused on integrating legendary Studer technology into its own live production workflows. Studer Vista digital consoles and Infinity Core audio mixing and processing are now part of Evertz software-defined video networking (SDVN) solutions, leading the industry’s transition to IP. These developments make a huge difference for customers as they can now access complete solutions for IP video and audio production.

The Infinity-ST series retains Studer’s sample-locked 100% redundancy option, giving today’s high-pressure, high-stakes productions the protection they demand.

The Micro series completes the Evertz Studer range for IBC – a high-end digital audio mixing system in a compact and cost-effective package that offers users everything they need in a single box.

Consisting of the central unit, graphical user interface and optional fader control surface, the Micro Series is ideal for radio and TV broadcast, production studios, ENG/DSNG and more. Its convenient HTML5-based user interface means the Studer Micro can be fully controlled from the web browser on virtually any tablet or computer.

“The Micro Series combines renowned Studer quality with powerful features such as AoIP, Lexicon effects processing and automatic VoiceMix mixing,” adds Paul Shorter. “Its launch adds even more flexibility to Studer’s product offering, which already offers comprehensive mixing capabilities to a wide range of customers.

In a broadcast landscape that is increasingly IP-based, there have long been discussions about audio and how it can be transferred into this new world. The acquisition of Studer by Evertz answers many of these questions by providing real solutions to customers and technological advancements to the entire industry.
