Myanmar-based Padamyar FM has opted to incorporate Lawo gear into its recently upgraded facilities.
Located in the country’s capital of Yangon, the station, which launched its new studios in August, purchased — through Myanmar systems integrator Elevate Broadcast Pte Ltd. — a Lawo crystal mixing console, Compact Engine AoIP mixing platforms and VisTool GUI-builder software.
The on-air control room employs a 12-fader crystal console with a VisTool virtual mixer, which Lawo says, extends the crystal’s mixing capabilities by allowing users to instantly recall source assignments and other settings on both mixing devices simultaneously.
In addition, the station combines VisTool with a Lawo Compact Engine in the station’s Master Control Room. This combination, explains Lawo, generally functions as a cross-point router with touchscreen interface but may also be used to route and mix signals throughout the facility, or to completely bypass the on-air studios during emergency broadcasts.
“Padamyar FM has designed a beautiful facility that Lawo is proud to be part of,” says Boon Siong Tan, Lawo Sales Director for Southeast Asia. “Their unique workflow showcases the seamless combination of physical and virtual control surfaces throughout the radio station. It’s a wonderful example of how traditional and computer-based broadcast tools can complement each other.”
