NAB 2012: Lawo Highlights Digital Routing, Consoles
Lawo will showcase the company’s full range of broadcast products, including the crystal, zirkon, and sapphire radio mixing consoles, select large format consoles from the mc² series for broadcast and postproduction, plus routing and DSP solutions. Key highlights will include Lawo’s integrated digital routing technology and the intuitive layering capabilities of the mc² series consoles, which enhance workflow efficiency.
Lawo’s new V4.16 software for the mc² series will also be featured. With V4.16, current DSP boards offer 96 channels instead of the 48 channels previously available. Lawo developed ‘Broadcast Channels’ that offer a feature set adapted specifically for broadcast applications using simplified signal flow while maintaining Lawo’s sound quality. Depending on the requirements of the production, sound engineers can select either the 48 ‘classic’ or the 96 ‘Broadcast Channels’ for the DSP boards – switchable on the fly.
By upgrading their mc² console with v4.16, customers can boost the overall DSP performance of their Lawo desk to over 800 channels. Version 4.16 also supports the new Lawo DALLIS mic card, which will be on display. This card offers high dynamics at minimal distortion with low latency.
