Lawo Serves Bastille Day Celebrations

News Image
France's Bastille Day celebrations have been broadcast to an audience of 10 million across Europe with a Lawo setup.

With events taking place across the country on 14 July, Lawo mixing consoles provided the highest possible audio quality for the traditional Concert de Paris taking place on the Champs du Mars at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.

The FOH console used for the orchestra mix was a 48-fader mc²56 production console, whereas a 48-fader mc²56 took over the monitor tasks in a setup with a 16-fader mc² extender being used in order to allow social distancing between the two operators. Working over the Optocore fiber-optic network deployed by Radio France for the live sound system to connect the event's mixing consoles and I/O systems, the Concert de Paris proved again to push the envelope with regard to audio standards and operating efficiencies.

Separate preamp control for FOH and monitors and a split to the Lawo mc²66 console used for the broadcast mix in a Radio France OB vehicle enabled use of the on-air console’s own stageboxes and DALLIS mic preamps.

"It is a great honour for Lawo to be trusted, year after year, by Radio France for such a prestigious event as the provider of the audio mixing consoles for both the public address and broadcast signals," said Joffrey Heyraud, Lawo Sales Director France. "It highlights the excellence of our equipment with uncompromising audio processing and state-of-the-art reliability."
