News Image
Brahma Kumaris, World Renewal Spiritual Trust has recently constructed Godlywood Studios in its Shantivan Complex at its International Headquarters at Abu Road, Rajasthan.
The electronic media studio creates television programs and films dedicated to spreading spiritual knowledge and Raja Yoga meditation.
Godlywood Studios has installed a HARMAN Studer Vista 1 mixing console to serve at the heart of its audio system.
The Brahma Kumaris, World Renewal Spiritual Trust organisation is spread over 138 countries with 8,500 centres.
Following BK. Ramesh Shah’s vision to create a studio with all functional infrastructure facilities under one roof, the implementation of the project was handed over to Shri. Haridas Bhanushali (BK Harilal).
Godlywood studios enlisted a technical committee comprised of BK Shiva, Shashi Mekal and Gerard Goveia of Broadcast Media Equipments Pvt Ltd (BMEPL) along with Ashish Barje, Sales Manager, Recording & Broadcast, HARMAN Professional India. The team selected HARMAN’s Studer Vista 1 mixing console to serve at the heart of the studio, marking the first installation of a Studer Vista 1 in India.
"The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Organization [BKWSO] chose the Studer Vista 1 as the perfect fit for Godlywood studios because the primary requirement was that of a compact solution without compromise on system performance, DSP capability or reliability. The Studer Vista 1 enables us to have the control surface, I/O system, DSP and power supplies all contained within one very small footprint console," said Shashi Mekal, Technical Head, Godlywood Studios.
The BKWSO was also impressed with the Vista 1 for its interface and functionality with its Vistonics™ user interface and 40 on-screen rotary knobs.
The system integration for the project was performed by TASS Services of Mumbai. AVF Distributors, the authorised dealer for HARMAN’s broadcast range, supplied the console to Godlywood.
Commenting on a successful installation, Gerard Goveia, Director, TASS Services, Mumbai, said: "The Studer Vista 1 perfectly fit the bill given the specifications by BKWSO, as well as the budget for the studio’s setup. The Vista 1 sits at the heart of the studio, providing complete control and ease of operation to the technical users."
In addition to the Studer Vista 1, Godlywood Studios deployed a full array of HARMAN technologies in the space, including three JBL 3730 ScreenArray cinema loudspeakers, one JBL 4642A subwoofer and eight JBL 8320 compact cinema surround loudspeakers. The system is powered with five Crown DSi 1000 and two DSi 4000 amplifiers.
Godlywood Studios also features an audio dubbing studio equipped with AKG C414 microphones and dbx processors, as well as an HD multicam shooting floor that has JBL LSR4326 studio monitors
David McKinney, Senior Director, India Operations, HARMAN Professional said: "The Studer Vista 1 has proven to be the ideal console for this prestigious installation at Godlywood Studios. The internal 5.1-to-stereo down mix function allows for simultaneous live productions in both formats; this saves a lot of time for the engineers having to redo the mix. Being a successful installation of Studer Vista 1 in India, we are extremely proud of the installation and the team involved has done a commendable job in the project."
