Lawo brings ADM up-to-date
UAE: Abu Dhabi Media (ADM) recently updated the central audio router and control/monitoring system in the master control room at its studios. The government-owned broadcaster opted for a Lawo Nova73HD hybrid MADI and Ravenna/AES67 router with a VSM (Virtual Studio Manager) control and monitoring system to ensure that it would integrate with existing equipment via MADI and AES, as well as new IP-based Lawo mixing consoles in the studios with Ravenna.
The VSM software manages production workflows and offers overall control and monitoring for both baseband and IP-based installations at ADM. The Nova73HD, meanwhile, provides 8,192 inputs and outputs for Ravenna, AES3, MADI and SDH/STM-1 interfaces, as well as Lawo’s Star² technology for redundancy.
The Lawo IP mixing consoles come in the form of three 16-fader Sapphire compact radio broadcast consoles, each of which inclues VisTool screen-building software and Ember+ control protocol.
