Lawo has announced an increase of its portfolio of remote production tools at BVE2019.
Its new Power CoreRP is a 1RU device, featuring high-density AoIP and MADI I/O, eight modular I/O expansion slots, 64 DSP channels, IP streaming via WAN or LAN, and network-link redundancy via SMPTE 2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching.
Lawo said its Class-C jitter/network latency robustness eliminates the need for dedicated 3rd-party WAN gateways, drastically simplifying remote setups.
The solution offers 64 processing channels — enabling low-latency on-site monitor and IFB mixing. The company’s mc² consoles can directly control DSP channels, and can also control up to 64 input channels and 16 Aux busses.
Power CoreRP can also be directly controlled without a console, using graphical touch-screen control based on Lawo’s VisTool GUI-builder software.
Lawo also revealed its new UK subsidiary (announced last week) will be based in Chichester. Lawo director of sales and operations UK&I Craig Newbury, who heads up the new team, said the company sees the UK as an important market. “Customers have been demanding UK investment for some time,” he said.
