Lawo Ruby console

In the Lawo booth at the 2018 NAB Show, Clark Novak was telling attendees about ruby, the company's line of mixing consoles for radio.

Features include AES67 networking with Ravenna, a 1RU mixing engine, AutoMix smart mixing and a customizable, context-sensitive touchscreen GUI.

Lawo says the base I/O set includes four HD MADI ports and two AES67 connections, for a total of 384 channels of stereo audio. Rear-panel slots are available to accept up to eight more mic, line, digital and MADI I/O modules.

The surface comes in desktop or flush-mount versions in four, eight, 12 and 16 fader frame sizes, plus standalone four and eight fader and Master Control extenders for localized control placement in multi-user studios. Frames can be combined for up to 60 faders, in single- or split-frame configurations.

Features include motorized 100 mm faders, touch-sensitive to allow override of pre-programmed levels; SmartSnaps dual-purpose snapshots with on-air and production modes and fader maps; and six console snapshots for custom fader layouts that can be recalled with a button press.
