Italian public broadcaster RAI has upgraded 37of its studios and OB vans with Lawo’s new V__pro8 8 Channel Video Processing Toolkits as part of a nationwide technical upgrade studios,which was done by Milan-based ARET Video and Audio Engineering won the tender after participating in a test procedure which scrutinized prominent brands’ ability to process video in broadcast environments.
“The unique features and flexibility of V__pro8 – its ability to synchronize, convert, embed / de-embed and apply delay to both audio and video, as well as monitoring eight inputs at once – received the maximum technical marks in the tender. Thanks to the outstanding performance of the V__Pro8, it is the perfect tool for signal monitoring in RAI’s studios and OB vans.” Alessandro Asti, ARET’s VP of Sales says.
The RAI project is the latest in a number of successful joint projects between ARET and Lawo, including last year’s outfitting of Italian production company NVP’s OB4 OB Van. The heart of OB 4’s audio systems is a pair of Lawo mc²56 production consoles, a Nova router and DALLIS interfaces.
Lawo’s V__pro8 eight-channel video processing units give producers control of the complete broadcast production workflow using just one RU of rack space.
