the big Live Production Broadcast Console
The Broadcast version of the 5MT analog console system by adt-audio offers extensive features and very high reliability in combination with a maximum in sonic excellence. These consoles are primarily used for TV and Radio live broadcasting.

72 Channel 5MT-BC

Both German late night shows are produced on 5MT broadcast consoles. 3 consoles are installed at Viva-TV, the German MTV. Another system at QVC cable tv station is on air for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The proven quality and reliability of these systems make the 5MT-BC best choice for live broadcasting.


Mono and Stereo Modules are available for the main output formats stereo and 5.1 surround. In addition to the standard modules, custom module versions based on your requirements are possible. The system offers 36 audio subgroups, 11 sends, several versions of send outputs per channel, several versions of n-minus outputs, 12 additional, separate multi purpose output, 10 combined VCA and Cut-Groups, 8 additional Cut-Groups, Master Cut-Groups, Grand Master VCA-Groups, auto switch over features between sets of vca-groups for easy scene handling without computer, 6 additional stereo return inputs with access to all groups as part of the master section, 128 mm P&G Faders with LED chain indicators next to the fader that show the actual VCA setting, and two totally independent stereo masters.

Floating Groups

The 5MT-BC-Series versions uses the so-called 'floating Subgroup' principle. That means, that there are no special subgroup channels but every mono and stereo channel contains a subgroup buss amp and has an input selector, that makes possible to use the module either as 'normal' input or as subgroup channel. The assignment of the buss rails to the modules is determined by the wiring of the console frame. If in the normal operation of the console more groups are needed, free channels can be used as groups. On the other hand, normal subgroup channels can be used as inputs, if a special application requires more channels but less groups.

Since every module can send its output to the group routing section, the subgroups are not limited to a single level. With an appropriate number of channels, stacking of subgroups is possible. You arrange the concept of the group routing in the way you need. You can easily build up a 32 into 12 into 6 into 4 if you like or any other combination of the total of 36 subgroups.

The Snap Shot Version of adt-audio's console automation system CAS can be integrated in the 5MT-BC broadcast consoles. It controls the level and mute of all faders and groups and, if required, additional switch functions. The software allows to store, edit, and recall console settings.
