Radio Television of Serbia (Radio Televizija Srbije, Radio Beograd, RTS), Serbia’s public broadcaster, has added a new ONB van to its fleet, complete with Audio-over-IP technology from Lawo.
The van has been designed, built and equipped completely in Serbia by the executive team from TSE Beograd.
The heart of the audio system is a 40-fader Lawo mc²36 All-in-One mixing console and two compact stage boxes, each with 32 mic/line inputs and 16 line outputs.
“The IP-based Lawo equipment was easily integrated by using two MADI ports on the back of the console, the third MADI port we used to feed a TASCAM DA-6400 multitrack recorder,” said Bora Radojevic, managing director of TSE.
The local I/Os provided by the mc²36 connect with the recording and playback equipment, monitoring PPM, etc, while the van’s additional Lawo A_digital8 is used for TC ELECTRONIC Music 6000 multichannel effect unit, said the company. The van also includes a pair of Genelec 8331A full range and Genelec 7350A subwoofer active monitors.
“It only took a few training sessions for the RTS sound engineers to feel familiar with the console and the installation,” said Zorana Bojicic, CTO of RTS Radio Belgrade.
“We used the new van just after the handover at several different locations throughout Serbia: Beer Fest in Belgrade, Arsenal Fest in Kragujevac, Mokranjac Days in Negotin, Pipers Gathering in Prislonica, and the RTS Big Band concert in MTS hall in Belgrade. The system easily handles so many different types of music – rock, folk, classical, jazz. We are very happy with its exceptional flexibility.”
