Audio Console Lawo mc²36
Lawos mc²36 all-in-one live mixing desk provides a comprehensive feature set covering broadcast, theater, house of worship, live and install applications. The console features uncompromised sound quality and Lawo-grade mic preamps, offering unprecedented value for money. A powerful DSP micro-core with internal 512×512 port audio matrix, and integrated I/O make it ideally suited to permanent installations with limited space. As it is natively equipped with RAVENNA/AES67 technology, the mc²36 integrates seamlessly into IP infrastructures. In combination with the Nova37 audio router and mc² Compact I/O stageboxes as well as A__line audio-to-IP interfaces, multiple mc²36 can be easily combined to a very smart package for networked applications in live performance, installed sound and houses of worship.
Video processing and routing
On show will be Lawos IP-based V__line video interfacing, processing and routing devices. The V__remote4 is a bidirectional multichannel video/audio to IP-interface for remote production. It is designed to provide a one-box solution for all the requirements of video and audio signal transport and processing in WAN-based remote productions, including everything from Video-over-IP coding to various monitoring and processing tools. The V__pro8 provides video processing, interconnecting signals in different video formats, as well as bridging between audio and video within a studio infrastructure via high-density audio connections. The V__pro8s DOLBY E encoding/decoding option offers up to four DOLBY E en/decoders for fully-compatible en/decoding of professional quality multichannel audio on a single AES3 connection with Dolby E metadata handling. In combination with the units Dolby E Auto Aligner, the V__pro 8 is the perfect transmission path gateway for multichannel productions.
