Rastatt, Germany (June 19, 2017)—Singapore-based MediaCorp has completed its relocation to a major new production center, where its technical operation is served by audio mixing desks, audio routers and control systems from Lawo.
MediaCorp is a conglomerate of companies that is active in television and radio broadcasting, interactive media, filmmaking and media publishing. The new MediaCorp Campus is now its main production facility and incorporates several TV and radio studios and a number of control rooms. Here, MediaCorp has chosen and installed a large amount of Lawo equipment for two TV production studios, three TV news studios and a radio MCR. Additionally, Lawo’s VSM control and monitoring system provides the overall control layer across the newly built TV and radio facility.
In all, the media company’s new facility houses five Lawo mc?56 audio production consoles and an mc236 console, one Nova73 HD router, two Nova73 Compact core routers, a large VSM (Virtual Studio Manager) Control System and other hardware.
While all audio signals within the new facility are controlled using Lawo’s VSM control system, the Lawo consoles can also be managed remotely using Viz Mosart broadcast automation. Each system has its own dedicated conference resources (hybrids, Skype codecs), but there is a pool of shared resources which are physically connected to the central router and can be assigned to each of the consoles via the VSM.
