Sydney's 2GLF-FM rebuild with Lawo technology.
Australian Lawo Partner PAT configured, commissioned and delivered Lawo system.
Professional Audio Technology Pty Ltd has recently configured, commissioned and delivered a Lawo on-air broadcasting system to broadcaster 2GLF-FM.
2GLF-FM, a community broadcasting station in Sydney's suburb of Liverpool, have recently moved from their old studios to new purpose-built facilities at 161 Bigge Street in Liverpool. After assessing various broadcast technologies, the technical committee of 2GLF decided on Lawo's crystal technology.
PAT's Technology Specialist Alan Liddelow explains the technology approach that was taken "As with most small broadcasters, there is often some compromise between the technical requirements versus the budgetary restrictions. However, we believe that 2GLF-FM have found the perfect balance with their new system. We configured, commissioned and delivered two crystal 12 fader consoles with crystal studio frames and used a stand alone crystal frame in the MCR as main router." 2GLF's new studio facility houses two brand new purpose-built on-air studios and an MCR, in addition to a reception area and offices, with a further production studio planned to be built for later this year.
2GLF's Tim Miller, who has been closely involved with the install of the new technology was happy with the station's decision to go with Lawo: "We found that it was a big change to go from a fully analog facility to a digital one. Overall we are very happy with the Lawo equipment and the service we have received from Professional Audio Technology."
More and more smaller and community broadcasters have been discovering that Lawo's entry level consoles are within their budgets and still provide technological flexibility and sophisticated operating possibilities in addition to out-standing German build quality. MD of Professional Audio Technology Patrick Salloch was impressed with the new studios at 2GLF-FM: "I am always delighted when I see small broadcasters excel at what they are doing! The new studios at 2GLF-FM are very impressive for a community station and I am delighted that Lawo and PAT have taken part in this success story. We are looking forward to working together with 2GLF-FM for many years to come and I congratulate them on their outstanding new facility."
