Broadcast technology designer and manufacturer Lawo was awarded an Emmy Engineering Plaque at the 65th Emmy Engineering Awards, held in Los Angeles on 23 October. The award honors achievements that demonstrate a high level of engineering and are important to the progress of the industry.
“I wish to thank all our partners and customers,” said Philipp Lawo, CEO of Lawo. “They have always supported us and pushed us to develop products that better suit their needs and support their rapidly evolving workflow requirements. To me this cooperation is the key to Lawo’s success.”
Lawo pioneered the use of telecommunication protocols such as ATM/SDH (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) and now RAVENNA (realtime Audio-over-IP technology), making it possible to distribute broadband audio in realtime over WAN networks thousands of miles apart.
The Emmys jury concluded that Lawo’s breakthrough helped lead the way for audio networking and the creation of Lawo’s Nova series routing matrices. With their modular construction, dual star network topology and scalable routing capacity of up to 8192×8192 cross points in a single frame, the Nova series audio routers are used by broadcast engineers worldwide and aim to provide them with reliability, flexibility and enhanced workflows.
