ABS-CBN Upgrades Control Room With Lawo mc²56 Consoles
ABS-CBN Corporation, the Philippines’ leading media and entertainment organization, has upgraded two control rooms at its TV production studios in Quezon City with Lawo mc²56 audio consoles. The new consoles were installed by Broadcast Communications International, the main contractor for the upgrade.
The IP-based Lawo production consoles – each with 64 faders and providing 270 DSP channels, a routing capacity of 5120×5120 crosspoints, integrated Waves SoundGrid servers and connectivity via four DALLIS I/O frames – mark the first Lawo equipment installations in the Philippines.
Following delivery and several months required for installation, testing and training, the modernized IP-ready studio control rooms went on-air in January 2018.
“We are proud to have our first large-scale installation in Philippines. With this, we have entered a new relationship with ABS-CBN, and are confident that we are able to provide our best support, services and technology – not only to ABS-CBN, but to all our customers in the Philippines,” Tan Boon Siong, Lawo’s sales director for Southeast Asia, says.
