NEP Australia Chooses Lawo
NEP Australia has entered into an agreement with Lawo, a leading innovator and manufacturer of IP-based audio and video routing, processing and control systems, in which Lawo will be a key technology partner in NEP’s new IP-enabled production ‘Hubs’ in Sydney and Melbourne.
NEP’s Hubs enable multiple concurrent outside broadcasts (OBs) and will be the world’s largest networked broadcast centers.
Based on an internet protocol (IP) core, the Hubs allow for remote, distributed production – meaning cameras and microphones will be located at the venue, with the majority of the production team based at the Hubs.
NEP Australia’s Director of Technology, Marc Segar, said: “We found that Lawo’s vision was best aligned with ours and with the V_matrix software-defined platform and its Virtual Module-based functionality we are able to meet any size production with the flexibility to change easily between different project requirements.
Lawo’s CEO, Philipp Lawo, remarked: “We are looking forward to delivering on NEP’s vision on this pioneering project and in close co-operation with our local partner, Professional Audio and Television (PAT). “Together with the highly accomplished partners on this
project with we will set the standard for the future of our industry. Indeed it is a new chapter in our industry – Broadcast 3.0 – and we are proud to be at the epicenter!”
