Studer digital consoles helped broadcast the Nobel Peace Prize concert.
Six thousand people and an international lineup of stars gathered in Oslo this past December to mark the award of the Prize to Muhammad Yunus and the Grameen Bank. On stage were Lionel Richie, Wynonna, Simply Red, Rihanna, John Legend and, in a rare performance, Yusuf Islam, the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens.

Norway's national broadcaster, NRK, brought three of its highest-specification OB vans into the Spektrum to handle the event's TV production. All three trucks were equipped with Studer digital audio consoles, including the flagship of the NRK fleet, the HD-1, which has a 52-fader Vista 8.

Six Studer stageboxes, providing between 44 and 48 inputs and eight returns each, were positioned at the side of the stage handling a total of 264 inputs. Inputs from the artists on the two side stages were sent to Truck 1, NRK's OBL12, which is equipped with a Studer D950 audio console. The Orchestra was mixed by Truck 2, the TR-23 which has a 52-fader Vista 8 desk, and the mix was then sent onto Truck 1/OBL12. The finished stage mix was delivered to Truck 3, the HD-1, where NRK's Jon-Dag Skagmo added presenter and audience feeds to create the final mix on his Vista 8.
