New Bahrain TV OBs put VSM and Lawo in control


Bahrain TV, which is owned and run the Ministry of Information Affairs, has added two new medium-sized Outside Broadcast vans to its fleet, with two Lawo IP-based mc² audio production consoles in the audio control rooms and a VSM Broadcast Control System architecture for the overall control in both. The new OBs are part of the framework governing the modernisation process of the direct TV broadcasting system. Dubai-located systems integrator Broadcast & Studio Solutions (BSS) equipped the OB vans with high-definition TV broadcasting technologies, following stringent international specifications, security and safety standards, to allow the vans to cover all official events, exhibitions and conferences, as well as local and international sporting events.

The new OB vans are controlled by Lawo’s VSM Broadcast Control and Workflow Solution in combination with VSM servers in a redundant setup at the heart of the control system. vsmSTUDIO software handles all administration and configuration tasks, while control interfaces in the form of a wide range of hardware LCD button panels and software panel clients allow simplified operation from flexible and custom-designed configurable GUIs. Additional VSM hardware includes GPIO interfaces, UMDs for dynamic labelling and SmartHubs, which convert control signals from serial to TCP/IP and vice versa. SNMP Monitoring capabilities are provided by the vSNMP editor software tool, which runs on a separate server.

The audio infrastructure integrates a 48-fader Lawo mc²56 audio production console with 384 DSP channels, a routing capacity of 5,120x5,120 mono channels, plus local I/Os directly available at the audio desk. An additional mc² Compact I/O system provides remote I/Os for high-profile productions. The smaller OB van carries a more compact 24-fader mc²36, again with a multitude of remote and local I/Os controlled by 192 DSP channels via a 512x512 matrix.
