Top Italian broadcaster upgrades Rome studios.
Italy’s state broadcaster RAI has upgraded the music studio at its Fabrizio Frizzi television studios in Rome. The project has seen the studio add new 5.1 surround and stereo systems, based around Genelec’s ‘The Ones’ three-way coaxial Smart Active Monitors.
“This is the centre of production in Rome for TV shows, and the room we have upgraded is for mixing the music for these shows,” explains Gino De Dominicis, Pro Audio product manager and Genelec product specialist at Midiware, the Italian distributor of Genelec’s wide range of professional monitors. “They take the orchestra from the TV shows – it’s just the music they mix – and they broadcast every show that is made in the building in this way.
“They wanted a 5.1 system to mix in surround and a main stereo system in that room,” he continues. “They have to guarantee a high-quality service for the whole country, so we recommended The Ones, which offer very neutral and detailed listening.”
