“We’re very happy that David has chosen to join the Lawo family,” says Sam Schauland, Technical Director, Americas. “His familiarity with daily radio operations and expert knowledge of how to build, configure and administer AoIP networks and equipment makes him an invaluable addition to our growing North American team of technical experts.”
In his new position as a Radio Broadcast Engineer with Lawo, Antoine will provide clients with hardware and software technical support, systems installation assistance, system commissioning, equipment training and overall system design services.
“I love broadcast engineering, and I love helping people, so this position is a great fit for me,” says Antoine. “Lawo makes some of the world’s most powerful radio consoles. They’re are also pioneers in Virtual Radio technology, something that’s revolutionizing day-to-day radio operations. I’m looking forward to being part of that revolution.”
In addition to his career in broadcasting, Antoine is a veteran live-sound engineer, having toured with performers such as The Trammps, Brass Construction, Starpoint and Noel Pointer. “Lawo’s performance audio mixers have an amazing reputation,” he says. “It’s beyond cool to work for a company whose consoles are used on the Grammys and the Tonight Show!”
