Las Vegas, NV (April 24, 2008)–Lawo launched the new mc≤56 digital audio console at this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas. The new desk offers the performance of the larger mc≤90 and mc≤66 consoles in a reduced surface with compact dimensions.
Based on the existing mc≤ technology, the mc≤56 offers the Lawo HD core with up to 512 DSP channels, 144 summing buses and a routing capacity of up to 8,192 crosspoints. The complete functionality of the mc≤ series is available–including the transfer of snapshots within the mc≤ family, as well as dynamic automation and networking with other Lawo products.
The newly designed control surface offers direct access to essential operating elements. Functions that are rarely used are handled via the touchscreen graphical user interface. In addition, the new construction reduces fader width to 30 mm. Every 16-fader bay offers fully featured metering on high resolution TFT.
Lawo continues to offer modularity with options for a second fader row and the insertion of PPMs. With different frame sizes from 32 to 80 faders and special flightcase versions, the console may be adapted to a wide range of applications.
