Abu Dhabi Broadcaster LIVE has purchased five V_pro8 "toolbox" broadcast processors from Lawo for its studios.
LIVE provides OB services for Abu Dhabi Media Company, a multi-platform media and entertainment organisation that operates and manages 25 brands across multiple platforms, including broadcast, publishing and digital. The company's broadcast facilities include the largest fleet of high-definition OB Vans in the MENA region, an extensive collection of SNG equipment and 3,000 sq m of fully equipped studios.

The company's MCR feed recordings and playout services currently provide 24/7 broadcast for 14 channels, while ingest and archive services includes the management of Abu Dhabi's largest historical film archive. Postproduction facilities include 20 AVID and FCP suites.

Currently, LIVE uses several Lawo audio consoles and VSM control systems in its OB Vans. With the addition of the V__pro8 units, it will gain higher workflow flexibility through the V__pro8's ability to combine audio and video management functions in a single tool.

Hamad Abdelrazaq, Head of Broadcast Engineering at LIVE, said: "As a service provider for very different applications, we have to offer our clients the most flexible but also most cost-efficient solutions. The V_pro8s are the perfect tool for this, streamlining our workflows, and giving us the flexibility to work in different production situations quickly and reliably."
