ISE 2019: Lawo To Focus on SMART IP Network Monitoring, IP Signal Processing, Control Solutions
At ISE 2019 (February 5-8, London), Lawo (stand 7.V-220) will focus on its latest native IP signal processing, control, and monitoring solutions, namely the V__matrix Software-defined IP-Routing, Processing & Multi-Viewing Platform, the Power Core Audio Engine, the SMART System Monitoring and Realtime Telemetry for IP Networks, the VisTool GUI Builder, and the VSM independent, overarching control system.
Lawo’s V__matrix ecosystem is based on generic high capacity FPGA based core processing modules upon which software-defined Virtual Modules (VM) are loaded to create the functionality required. Multiple cores are connected through redundant 40GE (or 4x10GE) Ethernet interfaces to an IP network to form a distributed IP routing and processing matrix that provides frame-accurate, clean switching just like a legacy baseband matrix.
The Lawo Power Core is a networked 19”/1RU Audio Processing unit with processing capacity providing 96 fully equipped DSP channels, 80 summing busses, and a 1,920×1,920 routing matrix. The eight rear side slots accept any variety of IO cards for Mic, Line, AES, MADI, and headphone interfaces in addition to the unit’s IP and MADI connectivity. Besides standard audio processing like dynamics and EQs, Power Core also features advanced audio assist systems like one-touch AutoGain and 32 instances of AutoMix for automatically maintaining the balance of open mics.
Lawo’s SMART range includes the smartDASH System Monitoring and Realtime Telemetry, vendor-agnostic enterprise software for network and media visibility across an all-IP, all-SDI or hybrid WAN/LAN infrastructure, and the smartSCOPE Deep Packet Inspection & Network Analyzer, a media-agnostic, high-density 24/7 analysis platform for IP flows in live production and delivery. Lawo’s VSM IP control solution abstracts the physical units from the user providing a single overall control solution featuring seamless baseband & IP integration, the broadest 3rd-party control capabilities (incl. broadcast and AV equipment), and an intuitive operational user interface. mc²56 MKIII, for optimal performance within IP video production environments, gives full support for native SMPTE 2110, AES67/ RAVENNA and DANTE, while Lawo’s LiveView feature enables thumbnail previews of video streams directly in the fader labeling displays.
