Rastatt, Germany (June 29, 2015)—Zhejiang TV in China has refurbished its Concert Hall into a multi-function theatre and HDTV television studio using a Lawo mc266 digital audio console.
The broadcaster’s most recent developments have centered on a facility renovation that will give it new 2,500-sq.-m. and 1,200-sq.-m. studios, with extensive use of audio and video technology from Lawo. The new studios will serve the annual production and broadcast of Voice of China, as well as all other shows, including Hurry Up, Brother.
Zhejiang Television (ZJTV) is operated by the Zhejiang Radio & Television Group, China’s fourth biggest television network, and broadcasts in Mandarin. ZJTV has been using Lawo equipment for six years, having previously invested in a number of digital mixing systems.
“We have been using Lawo audio products since 2009, including mc266 and mc256 mixing consoles in our most major studios,” a ZJTV spokesperson confirmed. “We are very satisfied with their performance and reliability, and we believe that the IP-based Lawo video products will give us the same quality of technology as well as Lawo’s after-sales service.”
The existing Lawo mixing consoles are installed in ZJTV’s main Concert Hall, and two studios in Hangzhou City. Now, the broadcaster has also committed to adding Lawo video units to its technical infrastructure. When complete, the new studios will incorporate a total of six Lawo V__pro8 digital video processors.
