Lawo crystal climbs high with Nepal’s HITS FM

Posted on: Wednesday 18th of July 2018

Nepal_RJ_self_op1_resolution_magazineHITS FM 91.2, Nepal’s no. 1 radio station, has installed a Lawo crystal radio broadcast console – the first placement of a Lawo system in Nepal. Chosen to serve lively programming and modern workflows using advanced efficiency and flexibility, the updated studio was unveiled in a recent inauguration ceremony overseen by HITS FM’s independent Technical Consultant, Ram Saran Karki.

After thoroughly researching the market and scrutinizing several manufacturers’ products, Lawo impressed the technical team with the quality, flexibility and ease-of-use of its consoles. A key consideration in HITS FM’s choice was Lawo’s reputation for solid German engineering combined with high-quality and innovative solutions for radio broadcast. The decision process included discussions via phone between the station’s technical and management team, and Lawo Sales Director for Southeast Asia, Tan Boon Siong, who answered the team’s questions with detailed information about the crystal console, its technical integration and the workflow options it offers. Also in focus was the support Lawo could give to customers.

Lawo was awarded the order and delivered a 12-fader split version crystal with countersunk kit and analog extension IO. The radio broadcast mixing system was delivered with pre-configured settings. After two phone calls between HITS FM’s independent Technical Consultant and Tan to understand the basic setup, the team was able to modify and fine-tune the system – a clear indication that the crystal with the powerful VisTool is easy to set up and adapt to the requirements and to provide full functionality for different operational needs.

Crystal is the cost-effective entry point to Lawo world of mixing, offering all of the flexibility and customizability for which Lawo is renowned, along with a future-proof investment for both commercial and public broadcasters. With crystal, RAVENNA/AES67 compatibility is available today – smart technology, ready to use. The latest generation of crystal mixing consoles comes with VisTool, powerful touchscreen-optimized PC software for extended visualization and control of crystal installations. In its basic version, VisTool is designed for clear visualization, while the unlimited version of VisTool can be customized to meet any requirements, displaying all parameters or only those essential to operators’ needs.
