Lawo, German IP-based radio, audio/video broadcast and control solutions pioneer, has reported the first installation of an IP audio console in Uganda at KODHEYO TV and NBS Radio 89.4FM. Located in Jinja, northeast of the country’s capital of Kampala, the station opted for a 12-fader crystal to bring state-of-the-art technology for audio quality, operation and workflow, social media and flexibility to its operations.
Beside the NBS Radio installation – an excellent reference in Uganda – further adoption of Lawo equipment is in the pipeline, taking the broadcaster step-by-step to a new level of TV and radio production with IP-based, user-friendly and efficient studio solutions.
Hamza N’Mbago, chairman of NBS Radio 89.4FM states: “The installation of the Lawo crystal IP radio broadcast console strengthens our leading position within the vivacious Ugandan radio broadcast landscape. The integration of this technology enables us to advance our workflows, making our radio production faster and more efficient – and the user-friendliness of the crystal console allows our operators to concentrate on their work while doing their radio shows.”
The crystal console offers a cost-effective point of entry into the Lawo world of mixing, combining all of the flexibility and customisability for which Lawo is renowned with a future-proof investment for both commercial and public broadcasters. With crystal, RAVENNA/AES67 compatibility is available today. The crystal mixing console comes with VisTool, a powerful touchscreen-optimised PC software for extended visualisation and control of crystal installations. In its basic version, VisTool is designed for clear visualisation, while the unlimited version of VisTool can be completely customised to meet any requirements – displaying all system parameters or only those that are essential.
