Zagreb-based Hrvatski Katolički Radio (Croatian Catholic Radio) has inaugurated new broadcast studios built around Lawo mixing and routing technology.
The new facility features Lawo Crystal mixing surfaces, a Power Core DSP engine, and RƎLAY VSC software. AVC Group provided integration and commissioning.
According to Lawo, HKR, which was established in 1997, is one of just half-a-dozen radio channels in Croatia, which are licensed to broadcast on a national basis. Programming originates from its Zagreb headquarters and is heard across the country via terrestrial and online distribution.
Specifically, HKR is using Crystal mixing consoles with Compact Engines are installed. The main on-air studio and its redundant backup studio are both fitted with 12-fader Crystals, with twin four-fader Crystals at work in the two production and editing suites, with VisTool GUI Builder software providing context-sensitive screen displays for each of the four consoles.
In addition, says Lawo, HKR is using a Power Core DSP engine in its Tech Center to provide systemwide routing and audio I/O, while multiple copies of RƎLAY VSC Virtual Sound Card software interface PC audio workstations with HKR’s Ravenna/AES67 audio-over-IP network.
