RTVE Institute updates studio hardware to HD with help from Sony

The Institute, which trains RTVE employees as well as the local community, wanted to future proof its production technologies

Spain’s RTVE Institute has selected multiple products from Sony as part of a major overhaul of its studio facilities.

The Institute’s main activity involves internal employee training and advanced education courses regulated for the community in Madrid.

Sony won the tender to upgrade its studio technology to HD, with the Institute now using two new XVS-G1 production switchers, 9 HDC-3170 HD studio camera units, RCP-3500 remote control panels, and PC-MSU software.

“We have been working closely with Televisión Española to upgrade their RTVE Institute studios, as they were looking to combine efficient workflows with future production technologies,” said Héctor Sierra, regional sales head south in Sony Media Solutions.

“We are thrilled they have chosen the XVS-G1 as their main switcher. Sony’s switchers have a long history and an excellent reputation for reliability and robustness. The XVS-G1 continues this trend with a more compact, modular format, adding new future-proof features. We look forward to continuing to work closely with the RTVE Institute as a technology partner and helping to guide them through this process of change.”
