Las Vegas, NV (May 24, 2012)—ORF (Austrian National Broadcaster) used its new OB van, equipped with a Lawo mc266 console, to record concerts at this year's Liszt Festival.
A Lawo mc266 with 40 faders (16-8-16) and 144 DSP channels is the central mixing console in a box van based on a M.A.N. chassis. Both the router, with a capacity of 8,000 x 8,000 crosspoints, and the Lawo stageboxes, with 28 mic- or line inputs, follow a fully redundant design thanks to MADI. Moreover, the Riedel intercom can be displayed through the stageboxes using BNC In and Out, and two 64-track recorders are connected directly to the Lawo HD-Core via MADI.
With Lawo consoles installed in almost all its OB vans and production control rooms, productions can be continued from different control rooms. "The workflows are kept consistent, and we are able to adapt to any changes quickly thanks to the configurability of the consoles," said Reinhard Tomek, system engineer and project manager.
