Lawo debuts AoIP stageboxes

A__stage80, A__stage48 and A__stage64 are WAN-capable and combine Class-A mic preamps

Forming part of the A__line family of AoIP devices, A__stage80, A__stage48 and A__stage64 are WAN-capable and combine Class-A mic preamps, advanced digital A/D FIR filtering and SMPTE 2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching (SPS) that provides two discreet, redundant network links for network connection stability.

A__stage80 is a 3U multi-input AoIP stagebox with mic, analogue line and AES3 I/O presented on standard, high-density D-SUB connections. It features 32 switchable mic/line inputs, 32 analogue line outputs, eight stereo AES3 inputs and eight stereo AES3 outputs. A__stage80 also includes dual-redundant MADI ports on SFP, eight opto-isolated GPIO ports, and dual 1000BT streaming and control ports on SFP/RJ45. A separate management port is supplied on RJ45. A__stage48 supplies 16 switchable mic/line inputs, 16 analogue line outputs, eight stereo AES3 inputs and eight stereo AES3 outputs on standard D-SUB connectors, with dual-redundant MADI ports on SFP, eight opto-isolated GPIO ports, dual 1000BT streaming and control ports on SFP/RJ45, and 1000BT management port on RJ45, in a 3U form. A__stage64, for applications where discreet I/O is preferred, has a capacity of 32 switchable mic/line inputs, 16 analogue line outputs, eight stereo AES3 inputs and eight stereo AES3 outputs, presented on XLR connections, in a 4U package.

In addition, Lawo has unveiled a new option for its third-generation mc256 audio production console. The dual fader option incorporates the manufacturer’s LiveView thumbnail previews of associated video streams directly in the fader strips to reportedly enhance accuracy in fast-paced productions.

The American manufacturer has also added new features and capabilities to its Power Core mixing engine and I/O node. A Dante card with dual-redundant ports and sample rate conversion has been added to reportedly allow easy integration of pro audio equipment into broadcast environments. With dual-redundant, front-panel SFP ports for AoIP, broadcasters have their choice of optical or copper network connections, without the cost of external media converters. The final addition is ST2022-7 SPS, which provides dual-redundant AoIP network connections. Twin active links guard against audio loss should one link be interrupted.

In other news, LiveView Decoding Engine has been incorporated into Lawo’s V__matrix vm_dmv multiviewer to show both production (ST2110/ST2022-6) and compressed transmission (HEVC/H.264/MPEG/OTT) formats on the same screen for end-to-end visibility, while new auto-topology, PTP-monitoring, cloud and data storage features have been added to the company’s SMART system monitoring and real-time telemetry solution. Finally, VisTool Solo has been launched, a lightweight version of Lawo’s VisTool GUI-Builder Software.
