Germany’s MDR modernises with Lawo mc²6618 March 2016
After 13 years of service, German public radio broadcaster Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk (MDR) recently replaced its Lawo mc²82 console with a mc²66.
System installation in the Halle-based studio, which saw MDR adopt an IP infrastructure based on Ravenna technology, was carried out by MDR’s subsidiary, Drefa Media Service.
Planning and project management was undertaken by MDR operation Management/Planning Media Production.
In addition to the 56-fader console – with 192 DSP channels and integrated plug-in server – the upgrade also included a 5k x 5k Lawo Nova73 for audio routing, and talkback via a Lawo sapphire card.
For its radio drama production unit, three DALLIS units have been added to MDR’s inventory as flexible mobile stageboxes.
