Worldwide Chinese TV Program Produced with Lawo Equipment


Hongkong-based Phoenix TV, covering news, reports and entertainment programs for more than 100 million Chinese speaking people worldwide, has been supplied with Lawo consoles for the brand-new Beijing building. The large facilities in Beijing comprise also a 600 m² studio with a control room fitted with a Lawo mc²56 console.

Further two sapphire mixing consoles are installed for the Phoenix TV news channel. The state-owned but privately run Chinese company, popular with the middle class and management, serves one channel with recorded shows and talk rounds whereas the information channel provides news and reports on culture and religious issues. A very successful streamed IP TV channel distributes further information. The installations are planned to be completed by the system integrator by end of July.
