More Than 50 Lawo Systems for the Sound Of Sports

London, England, August 6, 2012… Until August 12th, the most gifted athletes from around the world are competing in the summer games. The games and its media exposure provide athletes with the chance to attain both national and, in some cases, international fame. As a major part of the games’ media exposure, broadcasters from around the globe carry the feeds that fill the television screens, radio systems, and streaming Internet programs that are being enjoyed by billions — and a significant portion of those signals originate in control rooms from worldwide customers of Rastatt, Germany-based Lawo.

From the Opening ceremony and encompassing a wide range of sports activities, including Basketball, Football, Athletics, Badminton, Handball, Gymnastics, Table Tennis, Canoe / Kayak, Cycling, and Beach Volleyball, Lawo mc²56, mc²66, mc²90, crystal, and sapphire consoles, plus Nova73 HD routing systems play an integral role behind the scenes. more

Red TX Captures The Broadcast Audio For A Number of High Profile Summer Music Events

Broadcast audio specialists Red TX sent its Red II Outside Broadcast truck to Cambridge recently to capture an extensive programme of music during the three days of the Cambridge Folk Festival.

Top folk artists including The Proclaimers, Joan Armatrading, June Tabor & Oysterband, Clannad and Seth Lakeman descended on Cherry Hinton Park for the event, which was broadcast live on Sky Arts and was presented by Zoe Ball, Mark Radcliffe and folk singer Julie Fowlis.

Red TX was commissioned to handle the broadcast audio by production company Smooth Operations. As well as feeding a 5.1 mix of the audio from the main stages to Visions for the Sky Arts broadcast, Red TX also prepared a separate stereo mix for BBC Radio 2.

Viv Atkinson, Director of Smooth Operations, says: “I book Red TX because, apart from being consummate professionals with everything you need to do the job, they are technically superb and most importantly brilliantly helpful with an amazing attitude that makes any job with them a pleasure.”

The Red TX team comprised Ollie Nesham, who was on board Red II, and Ian Dyckhoff and Mike Silverston, who used a de-rig recording set-up to mix and record the acoustic performances in the presentation studio.

Ollie Nesham says: “Cambridge is a great festival to be part of and the entire team really pulled together to deliver up to six hours of live music mixes per day.”

Red TX is now back in London having been commissioned by Live Nation to record the audio for the BT London Live concerts in Hyde Park during the London 2012 Games fortnight.

The first, which took place on July 27th to coincide with the opening of the Games, featured Snow Patrol, Stereophonics, Duran Duran and Paolo Nutini. Renowned live sound engineer and Red TX director Tim Summerhayes was behind the controls of Red TX’s Red 1 truck for that concert, which was broadcast on Absolute Radio.
