Host Broadcast Services Consulting (HBS) has hired Lawo to provide the audio services for the 2006 FIFA World Cup from the 12 German stadiums to the master control room at the International Broadcast Center (IBC) in Munich.
Each of the stadiums will be equipped with several DALLIS I/O systems and one Nova73 HD routing system for ATM transmission to the IBC.
Lawo also will install two of its mc²66 audio consoles in the IBC for mixing the delivered signals and providing surround production for the world feeds. On site at the stadiums, the signals can be supplied directly to OB vans and to about 200 commentary boxes. The network is designed to be completely redundant.
