Sydney, October 2011 – Professional Audio Technology are proud to announce that they have supplied and commissioned a LAWO NOVA73 HD router and VSM control system to Global Television for their new HD4 OB truck.
The LAWO NOVA73 router matrix system will provide 8192x8192 cross points for multiple I/O formats including analog, AES/EBU, MADI and ATM for the HD4 truck.
A VSM control system was once again chosen by Global Television to provide control for the entire audio, vision and communication system. A VSM server and a redundant server were installed providing all of the control requirements Global TV had for HD4. This included an array of hardware which consisted of Multi-Bus Panels with 17 RGB colored LCD buttons, Multi-Bus Panels with 34 LCD buttons and some panels with 33 LCD buttons with incremental encoders, Comm Servers and GPIO panels.
Gobal’s Technical Service Manager – Mr Milan Milenkovic commented, "Global Television has continued with the proven integration between the Lawo Nova audio router and VSM router control matrix in our brand new HD Outside Broadcast trailer - HD4. We find the flexibility of the VSM system allows us to easily configure and control the majority of equipment within our HD OB units, as a result we are able to quickly and reliably turn our trucks around between projects.” Regarding Professional Audio Technology’s services on this project Mr. Milenkovic noted, “PAT, has provided a very professional service and have been a pleasure to deal with."
Professional Audio Technology provided programming and commissioning services and also training for the VSM system in cooperation with VSM Control GmbH from Germany and commissioning services for the HD core in cooperation with Kentetix Pty Ltd.
Managing Director of Professional Audio Technology - Patrick Salloch commented “This has been a very successful project for us and we are looking forward to being involved in future projects with Global Television.”
