Lawo on the Roof of the World for Nepal’s HITS FM 91.2
Replacing an outdated console that no longer met the requirements of its programming, HITS FM 91.2, Nepal’s no. 1 radio station, has installed a Lawo crystal radio broadcast console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 two phone calls between HITS FM’s independent Technical Consultant and Lawo Sales Director for Southeast Asia, Tan Boon Siong, 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.
