At IBC2016 Lawo says it will focus on pioneering solutions for IP video core infrastructure and for IP-based remote productions. In addition to new features in the existing V__line product range, the company will highlight its V__matrix, a software-defined IP-based video routing and processing platform.
Lawo will also have on hand the VSM independent broadcast control and monitoring for both baseband- and IP-based broadcast installations. The company explains that VSM manages production equipment, abstracting control from the physical production hardware and thus allowing for a seamless transition from baseband to IP. VSM provides support of control protocols from all major brands and models of video and audio routers, video and audio mixers, intercoms, UMDs and multiviewers, glue equipment, and other third-party devices.
On the audio side there will be significant additions to the mc2 console family and for those interested in on-air radio applications. Lawo will display its latest product for virtualizing radio production, the
Rɘlay Virtual Radio mixer, which the company says, is the equivalent of an entire radio studio’s worth of equipment all running in a virtualized PC environment.
Featuring a multitouch-enabled GUI, Rɘlay is a fully-featured portable studio, complete with analog and digital I/O and a four or eight-fader virtual mixer, all in a heavy-duty Rɘlay backpack with space for a laptop and other on-air accessories like mics and headphones.
