Two Lawo audio mixing consoles have found a home through a studio upgrade to Colombia’s Radio Cadena Nacional. A 40-fader Lawo mc236 console serves as the main system and a 24-fader Lawo mc236 serves as support for redundancy.
The consoles are used for the network’s 24/7 television news service and accompanying them are a DALLIS interface with SDI I/O and GPIO boards to handle audio-follow-video functions.
RCN’s requirements for an upgraded audio mixing system were better operating efficiency and something that had a flexible workflow with other control facilities and automation.
“The two mc236 consoles are the right solution for a 24/7 broadcast challenge–and beside the benefits of automation, AFV for multivideo sources, and the mxGUI control software, it was the remote diagnosis via web browser and the Lawo app that came as a nice surprise during the demo,” says Andres Galeano, Technical Head of RCN Colombia.
