New York, NY (September 15, 2016)—At the recent IBC show, German manufacturer Lawo unveiled the latest incarnation of the mc2 performance broadcast audio mixing console, the mc256xc.

Offered in 32-, 48-, 64- and 80-fader versions with native RAVENNA/AES67 support and Lawo’s Nova73 core, the consoles support up to 888 fully configured DSP channels, up to 144 summing buses and have an 8,192 x 8,192 mono-channel matrix capacity. An updated operator interface features an “overbridge” with 21.5-inch HD touchscreens, button-glow for color-coding and enhanced user guidance.

Other features include an extended free control section for direct operator access to more parameters; global and individual parameter assignments of all free controls in each channel strip; color-coded indications for at-a-glance overviews; multi-row metering for viewing of signals from other layers or banks; and more.

Notably, Lawo has adopted and implemented AES67 across its full product range. In order to support the transition to IP-based infrastructures, explains Lawo promotional materials, the company “encourages all manufacturers to embrace interoperability and open standards for the benefit of all customers.”

Lawo is a founding member of the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), “founded to ensure that all video- and audio-over-IP solutions brought to market offer complete interoperability and are based on open standards for seamless integration into media workflow environments.”
