Lawo has enriched its Power Core AoIP mixing engine and I/O node and will be debuting these new features at the NAB Show.
While Power Core was initially introduced as a DSP mixing engine and modular I/O system for Ruby radio consoles, the company explains that many broadcasters are using the system as a gateway between legacy audio formats and standards-based IP media networks. “The ST2110-30 standard ensures seamless interoperability of audio and video equipment in combined radio / TV broadcast plants,” it said in a release.
New Power Core features include: Dante card with dual-redundant ports and sample rate conversion; dual-redundant front-panel SFP ports for AoIP; choice of optical or copper network connections; ST2022-7 seamless protection switching; and twin active links to guard against audio loss.
Expandable, Power Core lets clients add more capacity with eight rear-panel card slots, which allow “a la carte” addition of analog, AES3, MADI and Dante interfaces, and a unique Studio I/O card that provides mic inputs and headphone and monitor outputs, added the company.
