NEWS > OB Group purchase LAWO
Sydney, November 2011 – LAWO sales and integration partner Professional Audio Technology Pty Ltd announced today that it has supplied the OB Group with a new LAWO mc² 56 mixing console and HD core for their newly built HD truck.
The mc² 56 mixing console from Lawo offers superb performance in daily operation, with well thought-out design and intuitive user guidance; a console that features reduced control density and, in particular, a compact frame construction. Concentrating on the ‘down to basics’ approach, the mc² 56 console fully conforms with the proven mc² series in terms of quality and performance. The mc² 56 is based on current Lawo HD core technology, and guarantees maximum reliability, functionality and DSP power for outside broadcast providers such as the OB Group.
Managing Director of the OB Group – Colin Rothenberg explains his decision to rely on LAWO technology, “After perusing various options for a new console, the final decision came down to 2 companies. I finally decided on Lawo as it best suited our needs and was more flexible. The expansion options are almost limitless and the interfacing to other OB vans is a very simple process. Another important reason for this choice of console is the availability of operators familiar with Lawo.”
Patrick Salloch – Managing Director of Professional Audio Technology commented, “We are delighted that the OB Group has chosen to go with LAWO’s proven technology for their new world class HD truck. More and more OB providers and broadcasters are relying on LAWO technology for the mission critical broadcast audio, as could be seen during the Rugby World Cup, the past Soccer World Cups and various Olympic Summer and Winter Games.”
The OB Groups new HD truck will be on the road and ready for action from the beginning of 2012.
