The mixer will be used on the Sonotech OB truck. The company is responsible for recording several major Portuguese reality TV shows, such as Operação Triumfo (for public broadcasters Radio Television Portugal)) and rival show Academia de Famosos, for one of the two privately-owned stations, TVI.
Based on a similar Spanish show, Operação Triunfo is purpose-designed to find up-and-coming Portuguese singers and musicians who will be the TV stars of tomorrow.
The daily RTP programme is presented by Ana de Sousa , Daniel Oliveira and Tânia Ribas de Oliveira and once a week a musical gala is presented by Catarina Furtado, when the candidates have the opportunity to show what they have learned.
Academia de Famosos, is an interactive show (similar to the UK’s Fame Academy), in which the television audience are asked to vote.
