Broadcast Solutions Adds Lawo Systems For IPL

News Image
Broadcast Solutions has added new Lawo routing and mixing systems to its inventory to provide coverage of the Indian Premier League cricket competition.

The company secured a contract in 2013 to provide production facilities for the 2013, 2014 and 2015 editions of the IPL to serve clients including STAR Sports, Ten Sports and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
For the first tournament, the company fielded nine OB kits and purchased three Lawo mc²56 digital broadcast consoles with HD Core technology. A further six Lawo systems used at this event were hired for the job.
Alongside the IPL, Broadcast Solutions will also be handling golf tournaments in Malaysia and Indonesia, a football cup tournament across two venues in Vietnam, a badminton tournament in India and further a cricket competition in the West Indies.
The company will relocate to Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in June and July, while preparing for the Asian Games in South Korea during September and October.
This year, Broadcast Solutions provided all broadcast facilities for three venues in the UAE and eight venues in India used in the tournament. The company has purchased six further Lawo mc²56 16-16C-0 consoles with HD Cores and DALLIS system I/O.
Alex Prüstel, Broadcast Solutions Deputy COO (Singapore), said: "We need a solution that gives us a surface that is not big, but allows access to all functionality of the system along with a router system that allows remote access via external controller, and at the same time, full access to the router from the surface. We also need to produce 5.1-surround audio without any additional effort and/or equipment.
"In addition, we must be able to take productions from one system to another, even when the hardware configuration is not the same, and we require operational functionality that is almost self-explanatory, so we can use cricket specialists who might be not familiar with such complex systems."
The Lawo mc²90 console that will be used is to be provided by a rental company in Abu Dhabi in an OB truck.
As well as the Lawo audio systems, Broadcast Solutions has begun using a number of Lawo's V_pro8 to provide an 8 x 8 video matrix and 384 x 384 audio matrix, and cost-effective SDI embedding/de-embdedding.
