Broadcast manufacturer Lawo has developed a new radio editing packing – aptly named ‘EDIT’ – that the company says reflects the know-how accumulated in over 40 years of developing broadcast audio equipment. A second new product – the JADE control centre – has also been launched with further details to follow. Wolfgang Huber, Lawo PR manager said the introduction of EDIT means the German broadcast and networking equipment specialist can now offer turnkey packages, which will ultimately benefit the customer. "Besides mixing consoles and routers, Lawo's 'Broadcast Applications' initiative now includes software products, so it is possible to address other fields of radio production, thus providing a comprehensive solution. Lawo EDIT editing software is the first product in this new category." In order to differentiate itself from available radio broadcast editing software Huber added that “the Lawo Editor is extremely strong in what it is developed for: it is optimized for ultra-fast and powerful editing under high strain, for highly time efficient workflows and high-quality results”. EDIT features include Reporter Box, a voice-over production solution, simultaneous use of multiple data formats in the same project, native integrated sound processors from Lawo’s mc² mixing console series and a loudness function in accordance with EBU R128 and ATSC A/85 that can be used both for real-time metering and loudness analysis of archive material (whether clips or entire takes). EDIT is currently available, with price depending on software version and feature set. Lawo is also providing “attractive offers for volume licenses.”
