Lawo Unveils AES67 Stream Monitor

The new stream monitor will debut at IBC.

Rastatt, Germany (August 23, 2019)—At IBC 2019 in Amsterdam, Lawo will unveil AES67 Stream Monitor, a new software product for Windows PCs that enables broadcasters using the AES67 AoIP standard to keep themselves informed about the state of their program streams.

“Radio professionals have embraced AoIP. The majority of new facilities are based upon IP technology,” says Lawo radio marketing specialist Clark Novak. “Broadcasters are also vocal about their support for the AES67 standard. But they’ve had no easy way to inspect and monitor critical audio streams. AES67 Stream Monitor addresses this issue and fills their need.”

AES67 Stream Monitor displays detailed information for as many as 16 user-definable audio streams, each of which can contain multiple audio channels. The main display presents audio levels and alarm indications at a glance for all monitored streams; selecting an individual stream display allows users to do a deep dive to discover detailed stream information.

The product’s functions include:

• The ability to audition AES67 streams on-demand using the PC sound card.

• Monitoring of two Ethernet NICs simultaneously for true ST2022-7 compatibility.

• A Stream Health Monitor that keeps track of jitter, dropped packets and data errors.

• LUFS metering with detailed tracking of Loudness Units over time.

• Alarms for silence-sensing, under-level or over-level alerts, with user-definable thresholds.

• SDP interrogation of each monitored stream, with information copyable to clipboard for documentation purposes or for use with other applications.

• Per-stream Status Window with display of audio level content over time, errors over time, and file-based error report.
