Innovative Production Services equips OB Truck with Lawo mc²36 console

Innovative Production Services, a provider of production experiences for live events, concerts, and broadcast productions across Australia, has announced the acquisition of a Lawo mc²36 audio production console for their 4K ONE Outside Broadcasting (OB) Truck.

The Lawo mc²36 is an all-in-one console at heart, boasting 256 DSP channels, both at 48kHz and 96kHz. All industry-standard audio inputs and outputs are built-in, with native IP connectivity at its centre. Powered by Lawo’s A__UHD Core software-defined processing technology, the console delivers the flexibility offered by IP technology — but with intuitive tools that make setup and management as simple as in baseband days. The console is fully geared to manage any kind of remote application and provides easy deployment for on-site scenarios, including point-to-point connectivity for A__stage IP stageboxes.

“We're thrilled to partner with Lawo to enhance our audio production capabilities,” said Jeremy Koch, director of Innovative Production Services. “The Lawo mc²36 console is a game-changer for us, offering unparalleled flexibility and sonic precision. It's the perfect fit for our mission to deliver flawless audio experiences to our diverse range of clients.”

Featuring 32 faders and a comprehensive suite of advanced processing tools, the new console empowers Innovative Production Services audio engineers with control, flexibility, and pristine sound quality in any production environment.

“We're honoured to be selected by Innovative Production Services to provide the audio production backbone for their OB truck,” said Keith Prestidge, APAC sales director at Lawo. “The mc²36 console is engineered to meet the rigorous demands of live event production, offering unmatched reliability, scalability, and sonic performance. We're confident that it will elevate the audio production capabilities of Innovative Production Services to new heights.”

Professional Audio & Television, Lawo’s exclusive distribution partner in Australia and New Zealand, supported and facilitated the acquisition of the Lawo mc²36 console for Innovative Production Services. Providing their own Lawo mc²36 console for testing and various demo sessions, Professional Audio & Television ensured a seamless procurement process and supported Innovative Production Services comprehensive research to evaluate their investment prior to purchase.

“We're proud to have played a role in bringing together Innovative Production Services and Lawo for this exciting collaboration,” said Patrick Salloch, managing director at Professional Audio & Television. “The Lawo mc²36 console is a testament to the relentless pursuit of excellence in audio technology, and we're confident that it will deliver exceptional results for Innovative Production Services' OB truck.”

Innovative Production Services will showcase their 4K ONE OB Truck, including the new Lawo mc²36 console at MET Expo 2024 from March 5 to March 7 at Royal Randwick, Sydney. To register visit
