The mc_66 is situated in the university’s Control Room A, which is used for concert recordings. In addition, a second room (Control Room B) is set up for post-production of the recordings. The Lawo console has 32 faders, while its HD core features 144 DSP channels and a routing capacity of 8,000 x 8,000 crosspoints. A Lawo DALLIS unit acts as the I/O system and is connected to an optical fibre network with eight routing systems.
The installation – which was overseen by Zeiler GmbH – integrates an existing Optocore network.
Peter Schmidt, head of the audio and video technology department at Mozarteum University, commented: “The mc_66 is a reliable console and provides excellent audio quality. Its prevalence in radio stations, theatres and concert houses certainly tipped the balance in favour of Lawo.”
Surveying the general level of success being enjoyed by the mc_66, Lawo’s senior product manager for the mc_ series, Felix Kr_ckels, told II: “The mc_66 has established itself as a standard tool for daily production work in the broadcast industry. Its acceptance and big success in major international events like the Olympic Games, Formula 1 and football championships encourages us to keep the direction in product development with the focus on the needs of our users.”
