I believe they are using a computer based system with hundreds of zones. Original work done by Peak Audio, but now under Media Matrix ,  last I heard.

Last time I sat in the Gallery for I believe the House (although it may have been the senate) there was an operator sitting up in the corner (Left side as you face the speaker's seat) on a small format Yamaha Digital (either 01v(96?) or DM1000, I didn't look too close) .  He spent most of the time reading a book, but when the speaker changed from one podium to another he switched faders. 


This was a few years ago, so things may have changed since then.
