Rastatt, Germany (October 24, 2014)—Coverage of this year’s FIFA World Cup tournament signaled the move from analog to digital broadcast production for Fox Brasil, which has now permanently installed Lawo audio consoles, routing system and video devices.
The Brazil arm of Fox International Channels temporarily deployed the Lawo equipment in its studio at International Broadcast Center (IBC) in Rio de Janeiro during the World Cup. That equipment has now been relocated to Fox Brasil’s permanent broadcast facility, also in Rio.
The Lawo equipment comprises a Nova73 HD, which serves as the central audio router, a 48-fader mc256 MKII console and two further mc256 MKII consoles with 32 faders each. In addition, four V__pro8 video processing devices from Lawo’s video product line serve as embedder and de-embedder units at the heart of the broadcast center.
