Lawo is set to debut the Power Core MAX, an AES67 mixing engine that supports up to four independent Lawo mixing surfaces, at IBC 2019.
In addition to giving users a large variety of processing, routing and I/O capabilities, Power Core has 96 available DSP channels and the capacity to handle hundreds of analogue, digital and AES67 audio signals.
“With the Power Core MAX license pack, a single engine can be controlled by more than one mixing surface,” said Lawo radio marketing specialist Clark Novak. “Project managers are excited about the ability to support two, three, and sometimes even four mixing consoles. This makes Power Core MAX perfect for large multi-studio projects, but broadcasters with medium and smaller facilities can use it as the I/O gateway and mixing engine for an entire radio station.”
Customers can choose from a number of license packages tailored to a variety of operational needs and price points. The new MAX package allows connection of as many as four independent Ruby mixing surfaces to a single Power Core engine.
Power Core MAX features include:
- Support of up to 96 fader channels distributed among up to four physical Ruby consoles or VisTool virtual mixers.
- A 1920*1920 internal routing matrix.
- 80 user-definable summing busses and 96 channels of DSP: compression, limiting, etc.
- 128 dual-redundant MADI channels and 128 AES67 / RAVENNA channels, standard.
- Eight expansion slots for even more mic, analogue, AES3, AES67 and Dante I/O.
- Dual-redundant front-panel SFP ports for AoIP. Now, broadcasters have their choice of optical or copper network connections, sans the cost of external media converters.
- ST2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching for dual-redundant AoIP network connections.
- ST2110-30 compliance for seamless interoperability of audio and video equipment in combined radio / TV broadcast plants.
All of these capabilities are packed into a compact, space-saving 1RU chassis.
Introduced as a DSP mixing engine and modular I/O system for Ruby radio consoles, many broadcasters are now using Power Core as a gateway between legacy audio formats and standards-based IP media networks, due to its abundant I/O capacity and a flexible license set that helps tailor capabilities to clients’ workflows.
IBC visitors can see Power Core MAX, along with the entire line of advanced Lawo radio, TV and live-sound products, at the RAI Center in Amsterdam 13-17 September, Stand #8.B50.
