Live goes Lawo
UAE: Live, the OB service provider for Abu Dhabi Media has invested in five Lawo V_pro8 broadcast processors for its studios. The broadcaster is already an established Lawo user with several of the manufacturer’s audio consoles and VSM control systems in its OB Vans.
Live’s broadcast facilities include the largest fleet of high-definition OB Vans in the MENA region, an extensive collection of SNG equipment and 3,000 sq-m of fully equipped studios. The addition of the V__pro8 units will reportedly offer the broadcaster higher workflow flexibility through its ability to combine audio and video management functions. The manufacturer states that flexibility and workflow simplification was key to the selection of the V__pro8s.
‘As a service provider for very different applications, we have to offer our clients the most flexible but also most cost-efficient solutions,’ said Hamad Abdelrazaq, head of broadcast engineering at Live. ‘The V_pro8s are the perfect tool for this, streamlining our workflows, and giving us the flexibility to work in different production situations quickly and reliably.’
