Lawo Displays New Product Additions

12/04/2019

GER: Lawo has demonstrated an array of new products for customers including real-world IP video, audio, control and monitoring solutions. 
 
The LiveView Decoding Engine enables Lawo’s V__matrix vm_dmv multiviewer to show both production (ST 2110/ST 2022-6) and compressed transmission (HEVC/H.264/MPEG/OTT) formats on the same screen for end-to-end visibility. The engine is a pure software application, running on COTS x86 servers or as a virtualised appliance. The multiviewer now provides full support for 4K/UHD, 3G, HD and SD compressed and uncompressed formats. It scales linearly to any size by adding more V__matrix C100 processing blades. Integrated IP and the software-defined nature of V__matrix provide a future-proof solution for any project – baseband SDI, hybrid or pure IP. It supports embedded and discrete audio, and works with pixel perfect mosaics with ultra-low latency. Intuitive drag’n’drop layouts are easily done with Lawo’s “theWALL”. 
 
Premiered recently at NAB 2019, smartDASH’s Auto-Topology Microservice automatically discovers, registers and documents the IP network topology, and presents device status in real-time. Furthermore, the new PTP Monitoring Microservice detects, classifies and analyses PTP at the network layer, acting as a referenced, locked receiver for essential timing measurements for video, audio and data streams. New features include auto detection of PTP, type modes, histograms, slave ports and lock state. smartDASH can now also run on virtual machines and in the cloud for running network device analysis of cloud-based applications, e.g. virtualised playout channels. smartDASH supports solutions based on AWS, Google, VM Networks and others. The new smartDS is a complementary data storage solution to smartDASH, allowing users to log and store months of alarm and data, recording everything from network bandwidth to signal loss. smartDASH’s reports feature can access and analyse the smartDS data to create rich reports for operations, engineering and management tiers within an organisation. Last but not least, smartSCOPE now supports SMPTE ST 2110-20/21/30/40 and ST 2022-6/7 live production video formats in addition to its existing transmission format support. As a result, smartSCOPE allows integrated monitoring of both compressed and uncompressed streams in high-capacity hybrid systems.
 
The Dual Fader Panel option for Lawo’s IP-based mc256 MkIII console supports up to 144 faders in a very compact footprint. The dual-fader option incorporates Lawo’s LiveView thumbnail technology, 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. In addition, and ready to ship, is the A__UHD Core, a software-defined IP audio DSP engine for mc2 consoles supporting 1,024 fully featured mc2 DSP channels that can be used by a single mc2 for the most challenging productions or shared between up to four consoles. Eight independent 10/1GbE network interfaces with SFPs enable the use of redundant networks via ST 2022-7 seamless protection switching (SPS). A__UHD Core’s total network I/O capacity is 40,000 48kHz/24bit audio channels.
 
Lawo’s Power Core is a new all-in-one IP audio remote production solution with modular I/O and onboard WAN-capability. Only 1RU, Power Core 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. A touch-screen GUI is available for on-site and remote operations. Power Core is the perfect companion for Lawo’s V__remote4 video contribution solution. 
 
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. The A__stage48 provides 16 mic/line in, 16 line out, 8 AES3 in/out, and one MADI redundant pair in 3RU. A__stage64 has 32 XLR mic/line in, 16 XLR line out, 8 XLR AES3 in/out and one MADI redundant pair in 4RU, while the A__stage80 packs 32 mic/line in, 32 line out, 8 AES3 in/out, and one MADI redundant pair into 3RU. All three units convert Analog Mic & 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. 
 
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 an elegant touch-sensitive GUI tailored to talent workflow. A library of vector graphics with buttons, rotary knobs, faders and meters allows selector panels, Mic on/off/mute controls, clock/timer displays to be created – and even gives talent control of virtual faders. Ideal for host, producer, guest and news positions, or as a convenient point-of-control for engineering facilities. 
 
Lastly, the award-winning ruby Mixing Console now features SMPTE ST 2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching, adding separate, simultaneous AoIP network links for flawless networking in mission-critical applications. ruby’s customisable, context-sensitive touchscreen GUI provides a smooth, integrated workflow that complements familiar physical controls for error free operation in the fastest-paced production environments.
