Las Vegas, NV (April 5, 2019)—IP broadcast solutions provider Lawo will showcase several new audio products at NAB 2019, including new console options and network devices.
Making its U.S. debut will be the dual-fader panel option for Lawo’s IP-based mc²56 MkIII console, which supports up to 144 faders in a compact footprint and incorporates Lawo’s LiveView, placing previews of video streams in fader strips. All console fader bays can be equipped with the new dual-fader module or standard fader module with extended free control section.
Also making its U.S. premiere and ready to ship is the A__UHD Core, a software-defined IP audio DSP engine for mc² consoles that supports 1,024 fully-featured mc² DSP channels that can be used by a single mc² for challenging productions or shared between up to four consoles.
Lawo’s Power CoreRP is a new 1RU all-in-one IP audio remote production solution with modular I/O and onboard WAN-capability. Power CoreRP features low-latency on-site audio processing for monitoring and IFB mixing of up to 64 inputs, 64 processing channels and 16 stereo AUX busses, with full remote control of relevant channel parameters from mc² consoles’ channel strips.
Three new A__stage high-density audio nodes serve as IP audio stageboxes for mc² consoles, audio extensions for the V__matrix ecosystem, or as standalone IP audio gateways. All three units convert analog mic and line, AES3 and MADI signals into SMPTE 2110-30/31, AES67 or RAVENNA streams, and support 2022-7 class C stream redundancy in LAN and WAN environments.
For the ruby radio mixing console, VisTool Solo is a lightweight version of Lawo’s VisTool GUI-Builder Software, for use on Windows touchscreen tablets. Broadcasters can build single-page graphical “user panels,” replacing hardware with a touch-sensitive GUI tailored to talent workflow.
The ruby Mixing Console debuts SMPTE ST2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching, adding separate, simultaneous AoIP network links for networking in various applications.
Lawo is also adding support for compressed OTT formats to its V__matrix vm_dmv expandable multiviewer app and will premiere smartDASH’s Auto-Topology Microservice, which automatically discovers, registers and documents the IP network topology, and presents device status in real time.
