Mainz, Germany (May 30, 2014)—TV Skyline’s new Ü7 OB truck launched in Germany at the beginning of May with a host of state-of-the-art Lawo equipment onboard.
The unit is the latest addition to the facilities operated by the Rhine-valley-based production company. Ü7 is fully equipped with three studio control rooms and up to 32 workplaces.
The audio area occupied by the Lawo mc266 console is intended for live broadcast of big sports events and music festivals in 5.1 surround, and can also handle parallel production of stereo material. The mixing crew can follow the 5.1 production in four rooms with surround monitoring.
“An mc266 mixing console was installed in our Ü5 OB, which was completed 2006, and we have had only positive experiences with it,’ says TV Skyline founder and CEO, Wolfgang Reeh. “It is very stable in operation, provides optimal functionality and is reliably doing its job. Another reason for our choice is that Lawo constantly develops and advances itself and its systems. With the current generation of the mc2 mixing console, Lawo has brought a high-quality and ergonomically optimized product to the market. With the functionality of its console core and DALLIS I/O system, it allows signal processing to a high level.”
The audio room’s acoustic environment includes a 5.1-channel setup with digital Dynaudio Air speakers, plus a K+H system, with Wohler audio control. The system can handle multitrack recordings of up to 256 channels, with processing and limiting from TC Electronic.
