At BroadcastAsia 2018, Lawo will showcase v_matrix kit with VSM in addition to A_mic8, v_remote and v_pro 8. It will also display is virtual radio solutions for visitors with hands-on demo. The Lawo A__line series of high-quality Audio-to-IP interfaces is designed to provide easy and reliable solutions for intuitively transporting analog and digital audio signals via IP network environments. Based on RAVENNA technology, all A__line devices are also compatible with the AES67 and SMPTE2110-30 audio-over-IP interoperability standard. A__line devices are managed with the Lawo VSM broadcast control and monitoring system. This enables convenient management of all IP audio and video streams from one unified control GUI without the necessity for deep IT knowledge.
The V__matrix IP broadcast video core infrastructure product can transform any broadcast installation into a flexible, future-proof production facility, addressing a wide range of workflows and supporting the transition to a totally IP-based environment. Lawo claims that free from the restrictions of legacy hardware platforms, it offers a completely virtualised real-time routing and processing infrastructure. Instead of connecting single purpose modular products in elaborate production chains the V__matrix is based on data center principles of flexibility, fabric computing and COTS economics and makes these available to any live production broadcast environment. It creates a fully virtualised core infrastructure, whether for an OB truck, a TV studio or a broadcast operation center.
