Audio giant enters video market and refreshes console technology

A newly enhanced version of the stalwart mc²56 mixing console and a debut video product head up Lawo’s appearance at IBC2012. “In light of recent technological innovations, we are able to offer more convenient operation and an even smaller footprint while delivering the same extraordinary mc² performance,” said Felix Krückels (pictured right), senior product manager for the mc² series. The mc²56 now benefits from a host of additional features, including permanent metering of the 16 central faders, and decentral and two-man operation due to fully featured ISO bay access. Nine individually-assignable user buttons, illuminated rotary knobs, integrated RTW goniometer and Reveal Panel in the overbridge, and button-glow for colour-coding the channel strips are among the other features of the improved mc²56. Lawo’s other primary focus this year is on its first video device, the V_pro8. Developed for displaying video power on a small footprint, the V_pro8 enables the connection of signals using different video formats. – By David Davies8C71
