Lawo has reported the first installation of an IP audio console in Uganda at Kodheyo  TV and NBS Radio 89.4FM. Located in Jinja, northeast of the country’s capital of Kampala, the station opted for a 12-fader crystal to ensure audio quality, operations, workflow, social media and flexibility.

Beside the NBS Radio installation, further adoption of Lawo equipment is reportedly in the pipeline.

Commenting on the installation, Hamza N’Mbago, Chairman of NBS Radio 89.4FM stated: “The installation of the Lawo crystal IP radio broadcast console strengthens our leading position within the Ugandan radio broadcast landscape. The integration of this technology enables us to advance our workflows, making our radio production faster and more efficient – and the user-friendliness of the crystal console allows our operators to concentrate on their work while doing their radio shows.”

The crystal console, the release stated, offers a cost-effective point of entry into the Lawo world of mixing. With crystal, RAVENNA/AES67 compatibility is available. The crystal mixing console comes with VisTool, a touchscreen-optimised PC software for extended visualisation and control of crystal installations. In its basic version, VisTool is designed for clear visualisation, while the unlimited version of VisTool can be customised to meet requirements – displaying system parameters or only those that are essential.
