Winners Of IABM's Design & Innovation Awards Announced

The winners of IABM's Design & Innovation Awards have been announced.

The judging was carried out by a panel of 40 independent, highly experienced industry professionals, each with specialist expertise in one or more of the awards categories.

Winner in the category 'Audio' was the mc²96 Grand Production Console of Lawo, German pioneering manufacturer of audio, video, control and networking technologies. The new Lawo audio mixing console, launched at this year's NAB Show in Las Vegas, has been specifically designed to provide optimal performance in video production environments through native support for all relevant IP standards – SMPTE 2110, AES67, RAVENNA and DANTE.

The jury's statement about the Lawo mc²96 console: "At last, a console that takes account of the fact that audio mixing for television requires the ability to see as well as hear an incoming source before taking the audio to air. A very exciting product that looks to be very intuitive to use."

The Lawo mc²96 console, available with 24 to 200 faders, features 21.5" full HD touch-screens as well as multiple mini color-TFTs in channel strips and touch-sensitive color-coded encoders, providing fast overview and user-friendly operation.

Lawo's new production console features LiveView™ real-time video thumbnails right at the fader's mini TFTs for intuitive channel identification. Touching a fader changes the LiveView™ thumbnail to full-screen mode, providing a more detailed view of that channel's video source, such as a camera or a replay machine.

Addressing live broadcast and performing arts applications, the mc²96 offers a wide range of innovative mix-assist systems such as AfV, Automix and AMBIT upmix and is compatible with KICK 2.0, Lawo's automated close-ball mixing solution for sports such as football, hockey and basketball.
