The stations will start broadcasting on DAB+ on Oct. 1
Radio Television of Serbia, Serbia’s public broadcaster headquartered in the capital of Belgrade, recently added a Lawo AoIP-equipped OB van to its fleet. The executive team from TSE Beograd — a system integrator for audio-, video-, multimedia-, light-, telecommunications and control technology — designed, built and equipped what RTS call the “Small Audio OBV”. Lawo‘s partner AVC Group supplied the Lawo equipment.
“The heart of the system is a 40-fader Lawo mc²36 All-in-One audio mixing console and two compact stage boxes, each with 32 mic/line inputs and 16-line outputs,” says Bora Radojevic, managing director of TSE. “We easily integrated the IP-based Lawo 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. The local I/Os provided by the mc²36 were more than enough to connect with the recording and playback equipment, monitoring PPM, et cetera. The additional Lawo A_digital8 is for the TC Electronic Music 6000 multichannel effect unit. The Lawo desks feed a pair of Genelec 8331A full range and Genelec 7350A subwoofer active monitors.”
“After the installation and with their first production ahead, the TSE team trained the RTS crew,” says Zorana Bojicic, CTO of RTS Radio Belgrade. “It only took a few training sessions for the RTS sound engineers to feel familiar with the console and the installation.”
Bojicic is pleased with the event coverage provided by their new OB van and the Lawo equipment at its heart. “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, including rock, folk, classical and jazz. We are very happy with its exceptional flexibility.”
