Lawo for HitRadio, Planet Radio and Harmony.FM studios

Posted on: Tuesday 3rd of July 2018

lawo_FFH_Studio_2018_Daniel_Fischer_Julia_Nestle20_smTele FFH has just completed an ambitious studio renovation for their HitRadio FFH, Planet Radio and Harmony.FM radio stations using Lawo Ruby mixers, the newest addition to Lawo’s family of radio consoles and virtual mixing products. FFH has been one of Germany’s most popular private broadcasters since beginning operations in 1989. Their main and backup studios are now equipped with a total of seven Ruby surfaces, each controlling Power Core mixing engines. More Power Cores were used to build a sophisticated, plant-wide router and conference matrix/intercom system.

Jörg Polinski, head of IT and broadcasting at Radio Tele FFH explains: “Our new Lawo system is state-of-the-art technology, extremely flexible and built for 24/7 operation. Our operators can create programming for any channel using any studio, and sharing audio resources, which saves us money on both equipment and staffing. Our audio network is a dual-core redundant matrix which employs two Power Cores for routing — very flexible and very secure. We couldn’t be happier with the results.” BOTTOM MID Real Housewives rely on JoeCo (pic: Joeco_RHOC_1) With all the drama and plot twists that follow The Real Housewives Of Cheshire TV series, sound supervisor and location recordist Stuart Windle needed a “solid solution to ensure recordings were never lost”, leading to his choice of the JoeCo BLACKBOX BBR1MP. Windle uses the BBR1MP as the “heart of a very compact, powerful, high-track count custom system” incorporating the recorder with power and RF distribution for up to 24 channels of radio mics in one 5U rack designed for fixed rig reality shooting. Windle adds that this style of reality TV can cause further challenges: “The women can go from a whisper to a scream in seconds and the BBR1MP’s limiters deal really well with that.”
