BT Sport fits Yamaha CL3

BT Sport has installed five Yamaha CL3 digital mixing consoles to help deliver high quality sporting action, both on television and online.

The technical fit out of the broadcast centre was done by systems integrator Megahertz Broadcast Systems, which chose five Yamaha CL3 digital consoles to be at the heart of BT Sport broadcasting.

The production centre includes three large studios with full production galleries, plus four smaller galleries for turnaround programmes, all linked by a master control room (MCR), which supervises a large number of lines in and out of the centre. Megahertz always tailors a bespoke solution to every project, so the company specified five CL3s in the smaller galleries and the MCR.

“We chose Yamaha because of their competitive price point, delivery and integration with Dante networking. Via a MADI interface they also allow BT Sport to connect to a Snell Sirius 850 hybrid routing switcher and access the available audio layers,” said Steve Hope of Megahertz.
