Largest Broadcaster In China Deploys Lawo's mc²96 Grand Production Console

The largest TV broadcaster in China is now also the country's first to use Lawo's mc²96 Grand Production Console – part of China Central Television's (CCTV) uptake of 4K/UHD and IP operation.

The audio console has been installed in CCTV’s No.8 Studio in Beijing by systems integrator, the NDT Group.

Begun in July 2018 with installation work starting in November, the project is now complete and marks the second of CCTV's studios to be upgraded to 4K/UHD with IP technology. The mc²96 and two further Lawo mc² series consoles in No.8 Studio (aka the 800m² studio) follows three prior AoIP projects for China’s national state broadcaster undertaken by Lawo, perfectly demonstrating that the German technical pioneer’s AoIP solutions are proven, safe and stable on the most high-profile of international broadcasters' stages.

"The renovation of CCTV’s 800m² Studio audio system was handled by our long-term partner NDT, and finished mid-Jan 2019," said Lawo System Engineer Sam Zhang. "As soon as it was finished, it was given a major mission – broadcasting the CCTV Spring Festival Gala, which is the largest live show on Chinese New Year's Eve, with 1.3 billion watching. The 800m² Studio produced the 4K/UHD signal; the first time the Spring Festival Gala has been broadcast in 4K. The new system did the job perfectly."
