Italy’s Biggest Commercial Broadcaster Adopts Nuage

Jun, 2014

Yamaha and Steinberg’s state-of-the-art Nuage post-production system is now seeing adoption by broadcasters across Europe. One of the most high profile of these is Mediaset, Italy’s biggest commercial broadcaster.

Mediaset’s Studio C9 is an audio post-production facility within the broadcaster’s centre of television production in Cologno Monzese, near Milan. Established in 1993, to support the growing demand of sound editing from Mediaset subsidiary Reti Televisive Italiane (RTI) Productions, Studio C9 since been the post production facility of most of the programmes aired on the Mediaset networks.

“Our interest in Steinberg products dates back to 1994, when we installed Cubase as the sequencer to be synced via MIDI timecode to the studio’s then-main hardware DAW,” says the studio’s Marco Trinchero and Flavio Nichisoli.

“After ongoing negative experiences with the DAW, it became imperative to find an alternative and in due course we switched exclusively to a Nuendo-based system. Given the stability of Nuendo 3, we might never have changed but, once we saw a demo of the Nuage system, it was instant karma!”

The installation of a Nuage NCS500-CT Master unit in Studio C9 has brought many benefits to the studio, the highly responsive touch-screen and eight touch-sensitive multi-function knobs providing direct control of EQ, dynamics, effects and other parameters with immediate and clear visual feedback.

“The many benefits are obvious - seamless integration between software and controller not mediated by universal protocols or unstable drivers, almost total flexibility in the configuration of touch screen and buttons, the almost military-grade build quality of the Yamaha controller and an impressive array of additional functions in the software,” say Marco and Flavio.

“The list goes on… from exportable MediaBay to the flawless import of AAF files, the Cycle Marker batch export, the Loudness track - which is a real lifesaver - the advanced ADR features and much, much more!”
