Lawo Crystal MKII Solution For Macquarie Uni’s Radio Department

News Image
Macquarie University in Sydney has refitted its Faculty of Arts' Radio Studio utilizing Lawo technology.

The newly refitted studios include an On Air studio with a Lawo 12 fader crystal broadcast console, an on air production control room, production booth and digital outside broadcast facility to allow for location broadcasts.

Live broadcasts are made possible via a broadcast link to community radio station 2-SER FM, who also have studios in the Y3A building at the University. This allows for close collaboration between the University and 2-SER. Radio is becoming increasingly multi-platform and so the facilities tie closely to the Media Futures Lab and creative media platforms for integration across broadcast and online contexts.

In close cooperation with Macquarie’s Radio Facilities Manager Peter Ring, Professional Audio Television (PAT), Lawo’s partner in Australia, recently supplied the Lawo crystal MKII console with a crystal frame to replace the ageing infrastructure.

After a lengthy evaluation process, the University settled on the Lawo crystal system paired with VisTool control and visualization software. Due to the flexible and intuitive customization possibilities Lawo offers with the VisTools software, Mr Ring took it upon himself to do most of the custom configuration.

PAT’s Engineering Manager Adam Langham said: "Macquarie Uni certainly made the right decision in providing students with a technology platform they will encounter in the real broadcast industry. It was a pleasure to work so closely with Mr Ring to deliver a state of the art cutting edge studio for one of the leading educational facilities in Australia."
