Lawo’s exhibition setup at this year’s Prolight + Sound (PLS), booth C28 in Hall 8, will focus on IP-based products and solutions for theatre and live applications.
In a hands-on environment, visitors can experience Lawo mc²audio consoles and Lawo IP routing systems as well as Lawo’s video processing units and audio-over-IP interfaces, including A__stage, the new members of the A__line family of WAN-capable stage boxes.
On show in Frankfurt will be an IP-based, 48-fader mc²56 audio production console of the 3rd Generation. This mixing system is optimised for today’s IP-video production environment, designed from the ground up for networking in complex production infrastructures, with full native support for SMPTE 2110, AES67 / RAVENNA, Dante and MADI audio streams. Its renowned, best-in-class networking performance rises to even greater heights thanks to unique new capabilities such as IP-Share gain compensation and Dynamic Surface to Core Allocation(DSCA).
Because reliability is paramount, the console’s local I/O provides dual-redundant IP network interfaces for simultaneous, identical, connections to the Nova73 router, in line with the SMPTE 2022-7 “Hitless Merge” standard for stream and port redundancy. Comprehensive local I/O includes 16 Lawo-grade Mic/Line inputs, 16 Line outputs, eight AES3 inputs and outputs, eight GPIO, and a local MADI port (SFP).
Also on display in Frankfurt will be Lawo’s mc²36 all-in-one live mixing desk in a 24-fader frame, with a comprehensive feature set covering broadcast, theatre, houses of worship, live and installed sound applications. Its uncompromised sound quality and Lawo-grade mic preamps offer unprecedented value. A powerful DSP micro-core with an internal 512×512 port audio matrix and integrated I/O make it ideally suited for permanent installations where space is at a premium. The mc²36 integrates seamlessly into IP infrastructures, thanks to native AES67 / RAVENNA networking technology.
