Kanal D

Astel Elektronik has completed the redesign of a news studio for Turkey’s Kanal D at the Doğan TV Center in Istanbul— specifying three Christie® Roadster HD18K 3-chip DLP® projectors and a Christie Spyder 344 4-in/4-out multi-screen processor. Kanal D forms part of the country’s most famous media organisation, Doğan Group, owned by Turkish media tycoon Aydin Doğan. The station wanted to redeploy the existing plasma screen and replace it with a back projection solution — using a 1.5m (high) x 7.8m (wide) screen in 5.1 aspect ratio. This would coincide with the start of the new season of the morning special news programme, İrfan Degirmenci ile Gunaydin, presented by Irfan Degirmenci between 7am and9am. This meant optimising the limited rear space available in the corner of the studio, where the display would be sited.
