Lawo Now Shipping JADE Virtual Soundcard
Introduced at IBC 2015, Lawo’s new virtual soundcard JADE VSC is now shipping. The software enables Windows-based audio applications to fully integrate with AoIP networks without any external hardware interfaces.
The software delivers 64 channels bi-directional RAVENNA and true AES67 streaming in the Microsoft Windows environment and provides multiple WDM drivers and an ASIO driver that can be loaded by more than one application at the same time. It also features advanced real-time broadcast-quality sample rate conversion for transparent playback of content sampled at a different rate than the network.
“JADE Virtual Soundcard is a perfect fit, whenever you just need to get audio software on PCs or Servers connected to IP-based audio networks. No matter if it’s only a single user application or a full broadcast station”, explains Mike Dosch, Director of Virtual Radio Projects at Lawo. “Broadcasters with large or remote facilities will love the fact that they can access drivers remotely via a separate control application. JADE VSC gives broadcast software developers the ability to make their products comply with the AES67 networking standard quickly and easily.”
