Bethel Radio Peru Enhances Broadcasting Capabilities With Lawo’s Innovative IP-Based Solutions

Bethel Radio, a prominent cultural and educational broadcaster based in Lima, Peru, has recently upgraded its broadcasting infrastructure with IP-based solutions from Lawo. This strategic enhancement aims to fortify Bethel Radio’s workflow, flexibility, scalability, and future-orientation, which fits perfectly with the station’s dedication to providing outstanding content.

Bethel Radio, founded in 2002 as part of the Bethel Cultural Association, has been a cornerstone in providing diverse content encompassing cultural, educational, and practical themes alongside Christian music, societal topics, and community services. With a nationwide reach on FM and AM frequencies and a strong online presence through its Facebook page, Bethel Radio has established itself as a vital voice in Peru's media landscape.

The recent installation of Lawo's 12-fader diamond console, coupled with the VisTool virtual extension, marks a significant step forward for Bethel Radio. This modular broadcast console, designed for both radio and TV applications, is built on the open AES67/RAVENNA Audio-over-IP networking standards, ensuring seamless connectivity and compatibility with evolving industry standards such as ST2110-30/-31 and ST2022-7.

Powered by the Lawo Power Core Engine, the diamond console provides a robust infrastructure with expandable I/O options, accommodating various audio sources and destinations, including AES67, MADI, analog, AES3, and Dante. With an internal matrix offering 1,920 x 1,920 crosspoints and up to 96 channels of DSP input processing, the diamond console delivers unparalleled processing capabilities, including EQ, dynamics, de-essing, limiting, and delay.

In addition to the core setup, Bethel Radio has integrated an additional Power Core AIOX expansion frame, adding 64 channels of audio in just 1RU. This expansion capability further enhances the station's capacity to accommodate additional audio or GPIO channels, ensuring scalability to meet future demands.

The deployment of VisTool, Lawo's virtual UI for studio or remote applications, empowers operators with single-point access to all essential tools, enhancing workflow efficiency and ease of operation. With its intuitive graphical interface, VisTool simplifies control and monitoring tasks, offering operators unprecedented control over Lawo's powerful mixing engine platforms.
