Control solutions by Lawo
With Lawo’s VSM System (Virtual Studio Manager), Lawo will demonstrate sophisticated and flexible broadcast control and monitoring for both baseband- and IP-based broadcast installations. VSM allows for managing all TV and radio production equipment within a single system, providing unmatched benefits in advanced workflows and simplified production operation. The system controls all major brands and models of video and audio routers, video and audio mixers, intercoms, under-monitor displays (UMD) and multiviewers, glue equipment, and other third-party devices.
Video processing and routing
Also on show are Lawo’s 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__pro8’s new 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 unit’s Dolby E Auto Aligner, the V__pro 8 is the perfect transmission path gateway for multichannel productions.
In addition to its renowned mc2 consoles, Lawo introduces its A__line series of high-quality 19”/1RU audio-to-IP interfaces, providing easy and reliable solutions for transporting analog and digital audio signals using IP network environments in broadcast, live and install applications.
Exhibits include the Lawo crystal and sapphire consoles, designed for optimized workflows in radio production, as well as the Nova audio router series. Like Lawo’s audio mixing consoles, these routers provide native integration of AES67/RAVENNA audio-over-IP technology, making them a future-proof investment.
