“Virtual Audio for Radio & TV”

KOED Studios
535 N. Greenwood Ave
Tulsa, OK

You are invited to attend the next SBE local chapter 56 meeting on Tuesday, February 21st at 12:00 Noon at the KOED Studios, 535 N. Greenwood Ave, Tulsa, OK. Lunch will be provided!

The meeting will feature a presentation by Bill Bennett with Lawo Broadcast. 

When broadcasters swap CD’s, cart machines, turntables and audio consoles for PC-based digital playout, mixing & processing systems, we call that Virtual Radio.  At our next meeting, guest speaker Bill Bennett, Lawo’s Radio Application lead in the U.S., will describe virtualization in greater detail by outlining the real applications in use today.  He’ll explore how broadcasters may now reap operational benefits and gains by capitalizing on IT’s investment in research and development and will discuss virtualization’s anticipated role in content creation and broadcast workflow in the future. 

Virtual Radio is a hot topic.  A recent episode of This Week in Radio Tech, (TWiRT) featured a Lawo presentation on this topic.  How did they conduct their broadcast interview?  Virtually, of course!

Lawo, is a provider of virtual radio products, digital mixing consoles, routing systems, video solutions and turnkey systems for the professional broadcast industry.  Their equipment is utilized by TV and radio stations, production companies, and theaters worldwide.   

Bill Bennett has been a long time audio engineer and project manager, leading venue Host Broadcast & technical set-up and operations teams for several Olympics.  He has also managed and engineered broadcast audio for NBA, NHL, NFL, and regional events.  He joined Lawo last year. 

We hope to see you there!
