German broadcast specialist Lawo promises to unveil several important implementations of the RAVENNA Audio-over-IP technology during the forthcoming NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) show in Las Vegas next week. A “surprise gift” is also planned for the RAVENNA press conference, Sunday 15 April at 4pm in the LVCC news briefing room N242.

In addition, NAB 2012 will host the world premiere of Lawo’s new SDI-Dock embedder/de-embedder; JADE and Multitrack Editor software products; the new Version 4.16 software running on the mc2 66 MkII broadcast console; Visual Extension for sapphire; the Nova29 MADI router; the crystal console; plus demos of practical applications using the Virtual Studio Manager for the device-independent control of audio and video equipment.

During NAB, Lawo will demonstrate RAVENNA Audio-over-IP technology implementations in its latest products. Here, show attendees will be introduced to the RAVENNA HD Core Card, RAVENNA DALLIS Master Card (pictured), and the 8-channel RAVENNA I/O modules.

At the RAVENNA press conference, ALC NetworX, the Lawo-owned developer of the RAVENNA protocols, will present “latest developments of the open RAVENNA Audio over IP technology standard, the introduction of new RAVENNA partners renowned in the radio/broadcast industry, and information on future products using RAVENNA technology”.

Regarding the “surprise”, Lawo and ALC NetworX were staying tight-lipped before the show. In a separate development, last week, arkona technologies was announced as the newest member of the RAVENNA community. arkona is the first partner company engaged in development of video processing and distribution products.
