SWR Mainz studio fully completed

Movie Tech and its subsidiaries LASTRO Engineering and MTS Media Technical System have supplied SWR’s Mainz-based studio with light rigging equipment and a new commander control system. The newly installed rail system measures 216 metres, consisting of 13 single tracks (Type ASS T-30) with a length between 13,5 and 17,0 metres. The 101 monopoles (Type TLM 70) are laid out for a payload of up to 60 kg and are designed according to DIN 15560 part 46. The whole construction was aimed to reach performance level C so much emphasis was placed on safety. The Commander automation system was especially developed and installed in Mainz for the first time. Its control panel is fully modular and allows the programme and control of the positioning of the systems in studios or on stages. As it can be integrated into existing networks and may also be adapted to specific production requirements, the system may be used for different studio and stage types. Additionally, the system complies with safety criteria up to SIL 3.
