Radio Television of Serbia, Serbia’s public broadcaster headquartered in the capital of Belgrade, recently added a Lawo AoIP-equipped van to its fleet of television production trucks.
The compact, van-based “Small Audio OBV” was designed, built and equipped completely in Serbia by TSE Beograd, a system integrator for audio, video and multimedia telecommunications and control technology.
“The heart of the system is a 40-fader Lawo mc²36 All-in-One audio mixing console and two compact stage boxes, each with 32 mic/line inputs and 16 line outputs” said Bora Radojevic, managing director of TSE, in a press release.
Powered by Lawo A__UHD core technology, mc²36 consoles can be sized from 16 to 48 faders and feature intuitive guided workflows, providing 256 DSP channels, 48kHz and 96kHz operation, 864 channels of I/O capacity and IP-native with support for all relevant standards, said Lawo.
It also features redundant power supplies and ST2022-7 “hitless merge” network link redundancy demanded by live broadcast operations.
Lawo’s partner AVC Group supplied the Lawo equipment, and the van, delivered in April 2021, has since been involved in several prominent productions.
After the installation and ahead of their first production, the RTS crew was trained by the TSE team.
“It only took a few training sessions for the RTS sound engineers to feel familiar with the console and the installation,” said Zorana Bojicic, CTO of RTS Radio Belgrade.
