In an effort to prepare for future broadcasting demands, German public broadcaster Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk has begun a transition to an IP-based infrastructure. Lawo announced in a press release some of its products have been selected by MDR to aid in this transition.
One new Lawo feature is the replacement of Lawo’s mc282 audio mixer for its mc266 in the MDR studio control room. The mc266 is a 56-fader mixing console with 192 DSP channels and integrated plug-in server. Lawo says it also added its 5Kx5K Lawo Nova73 for audio routing, a Lawo sapphire card for talkback, and three DALLIS units to provide mobile stageboxes. These products make up an IP infrastructure that is based on Ravenna.
MDR broadcasts radio dramas and features from its studio in Halle, Germany.
