BBC Studios and Post Production has upgraded its dedicated audio production gallery at the George Lucas Stage with a Studer Vista X large-scale mixing console.

Large complex entertainment shows using the facility will be able to benefit from increased processing power of the Studer Infinity Core.

Sound Supervisor Andy Tapley said: “This investment in the Studer Vista X desk has further strengthened our gallery offering within the George Lucas stages at Elstree and enables us to streamline the delivery of studio audio.”

“We’re delivering a high track count within a short space of time for each dance, and we have the flexibility to rearrange a mix to meet any last minute changes.”

Recently the system was used to shoot the ballroom episode of The People’s Strictly for Comic Relief, which was filmed in the 15,770 sq ft George Lucas Stage 1 in front of an audience of 750 people.

The camera set-up followed the much loved format of the Saturday night show and comprised 10 cameras, including one 30’ MovieBird Technocrane, five pedestal cameras, a radio Steadicam and four other handheld/lightweight tripod cameras.

An extra Hot Head camera was used to capture the giant overhead shots of the dance floor action.

The four-part series sees the hit entertainment format Strictly Come Dancing follow six fans, chosen for the tireless and selfless part they’ve played in helping change others’ lives for the better.
