Virtualization in Radio


Bill Bennett of Lawo, Inc.

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 Applications 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 I.T.’s investment in R&D 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!

Speaker Bio:
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’s also managed and/or engineered broadcast audio for NBA, NHL, NFL and regional events. He joined Lawo last year.
