Rastatt, Germany (July 10, 2020)—The new IP infrastructure at Buenos Aires-based Mediapro Argentina is based on video, audio, control and networking solutions from Lawo and was integrated by Unitecnic, Mediapro Group’s systems integrator and engineering company.
Lawo’s solutions were reportedly chosen to ensure interoperability and maximum use of resources across the facilities. In a first upgrade stage, Mediapro Argentina and Unitecnic have installed a V__matrix IP video system for edge conversion and signal processing as well as an mc²-based audio infrastructure featuring six mc²56 production consoles, Nova audio routers, five Lawo Commentary Units (LCU), VisTool-based touchscreen control panels and several R3LAY virtual soundcards for integrating PC-based audio solutions into the ST2110/AES67/RAVENNA IP network.
Mediapro Argentina has previously installed Lawo equipment in their OB van, using an mc²56 production console, Compact I/Os and LCUs since May 2018. In January 2019, Lawo supplied an IP solution for the complete facility of CONMEBOL (South American football federation) with four ruby radio consoles and 12 LCUs in addition to a fully customized VisTool solution and a central PowerCore for routing tasks.
Mediapro Group has a worldwide presence with 58 production centers in 38 countries. The Latin American audiovisual services company’s Buenos Aires facilities broadcasts ESPN’s sports-related programming for the region in Spanish.
