Fuzhou Radio Embraces Lawo AoIP
Thu 09, 01 2020
Fuzhou Radio and Television, one of the foremost broadcasters of China’s Fujian Province, has upgraded their Fuzhou Radio channels to AES67-compliant RAVENNA AoIP with the installation of mixing consoles and I/O equipment from Lawo.
Two identical on-air studios were built for Fuzhou Radio. Each is equipped with a 12-fader ruby mixing console, backed with Lawo’s sophisticated Power Core, the most advanced and powerful AoIP mixing engine available to radio. Fuzhou Radio also equipped the studios with Electro-Voice RE27 and Shure MX 418 microphones, Genelec 8030 monitor speakers, Eventide BD600+ broadcast delay systems, and Infomedia AOIPBox terminals.
“Fuzhou Television has worked with Lawo before and have experienced the power of our mixing consoles firsthand, with an mc²56 at the center of their HD OB van,” says Jochen Richter, Lawo Head of Sales, Radio. “When they decided to renew their radio studios and adopt AoIP, they found our ruby mixing console perfectly suited to their needs. More and more broadcasters are realizing the benefit of audio networks based on standards rather than proprietary protocols, and choose Lawo.”
Lawo’s ruby console and Power Core engine combination is hugely popular with top broadcasters, thanks to the combination of a beautiful, uncluttered mixing desk and a tremendously powerful DSP mixing engine. Power Core’s multiple MADI and AES67 interfaces give access to as many as 384 channels of stereo audio, standard, making it the perfect bridge between baseband and AoIP audio.
Eight plug-in slots accommodate even more I/O via mic, line, AES3, HD MADI and Dante expansion cards. When paired with a Lawo ruby mixing console, Power Core can provide as many as 96 DSP channels for precision audio shaping, with up to 80 summing busses, multiple AutoMix groups, and comprehensive compression / expansion / de-essing tools. It also has dual, redundant NICs with SMPTE 2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching to ensure instant, inaudible recovery from network faults.
Lawo’s complete line of physical and virtual radio solutions include the popular ruby radio console, sapphire, sapphire compact and crystal mixing surfaces, crystal CLEAR and RƎLAY Virtual Radio Mixers, and advanced VisTool GUI-builder software, all designed to provide more capability for less cost.
