Rastatt, Germany (July 8, 2019)—M15, the latest in NEP's lineup of next-generation regional sports broadcast mobile units, features an IP infrastructure based on Lawo products.
The single-truck unit was designed to streamline regional sports workflows, but is flexible enough to scale up for larger shows. Throughout its interior, M15 offers personalized workstations at all operating positions, individualized climate control and custom lighting. It uses NEP's latest horizontal control room design, and the production room features a flexible monitor wall fed by multiviewers with 32-inch monitors.
NEP has chosen the Lawo V__matrix IP routing and processing platform loaded with function-specific software handling all IP I/O, SDI I/O, audio processing, and multiviewers. Six PowerCores are used for MADI, AES and analog audio gateways to AES67. The IP router provides the infrastructure to support Grass Valley 86N cameras, a Kayenne X-Frame switcher, a Calrec Artemis console and EVS XT3 servers.
Lawo VSM (Virtual Studio Manager) provides overall IP broadcast control and orchestration. Also integrated for ensuring network stability and security is Lawo’s SMART System Monitoring and Realtime Telemetry solution, which also integrates deep packet inspection and network analyzing tools.
“We’ve fostered a great business relationship with Lawo over many years. Their products and systems have offered NEP and our clients the flexible, distributed solutions we need for our trucks’ production infrastructure; M15 is just the latest example,” said Glen Levine, president, NEP U.S.
