The V__link4, designed for signal contribution, distribution and remote production via qualified LAN and WAN structures, is being showcased at IBC2015.
Lawo said V__link4 offers VoIP coding, signal processing and a video/audio delay measuring system in a 1RU frame. It provides four SDI inputs and outputs, four 1GbE ports and redundant 10GbE ports plus an internal switching fabric.
Features include full support for SMPTE-2022 and RAVENNA/AES67 for VoIP and AoIP applications, including streaming of raw uncompressed 3G/HD/SD-SDI. In addition, a range of optional codecs can be used in parallel to create and receive JPEG2000, DIRACpro, M-JPEG and H.264 streams.
The Lawo V__pro8 for ultra-compact video processing is also being demonstrated. Lawo said this product has become popular in flypack applications. Its fully digital 8-channel video processor provides the glue features required within the workflow of broadcast production, said the company.
This included a browser-based GUI and extensive audio handling capabilities for de-embedding, delay, level adjust, channel mapping, down-mix and re-embedding for SDI and MADI audio streams. Optional capabilities include quad-split monitoring, RGB and YUV colour correction, AV sync measurement and format conversion.
