Swedish Radio (SR) has a mandate to “meet listeners where the listeners are, and broadcast from where the action is,” and the organisation will do a complete modernisation of its infrastructure using IP technology.
SR issued an EU tender for a pilot installation, and it has been announced that German manufacturer Lawo won the business. For the overall control system, Lawo will use products and services from L-S-B Broadcast as well.
The pilot project comprises the regional studio of Uddevalla and the close-by Gothenburg HUB, the latter to serve as control centre for Uddevalla and – in a later step – for other regional studios around Gothenburg. All companies participating for this pilot installation – SR, Lawo, L-S-B – have been involved in all aspects of the project.
