Lawo At BVE To Showcase Complete Remote Sports Production Setup

News Image
Lawo, German innovator and manufacturer of pioneering IP network, control, audio and video technology for live broadcast, studio and performing arts, has chosen the 2019 BVE show as platform for another major release of an IP audio product, adding to the comprehensive IP solutions portfolio.

The new product blends into the remote production setup visitors are invited to experience on BVE booth #M30. The setup comprises on the remote side the Power CoreRP Remote Audio Mixing Engine, the WAN-capable A__line AoIP interfaces, and the V__remote4 video over IP contribution solution. On the studio and the production control room side Lawo demonstrates the V__matrix Software-defined IP-Routing, Processing & Multi-Viewing Platform, the SMART System Monitoring and Realtime Telemetry for Broadcast Networks and the new mc²56 3rd Generation production console including the A__UHD Core ultra-high density network-based, software-defined audio DSP engine. Furthermore, the setup includes KICK, the Bundesliga-approved automated mixing control for close-ball mixing.

V__matrix
The V__matrix ecosystem is based on generic high capacity FPGA-based processing blades upon which software-defined Virtual Modules (VM) are loaded to create the functionality required. The range of VMs include the vm_dmv64-4 – the world’s 1st infinitely expandable true IP multiviewer and the vm__UDX – 4K format converter. Multiple cores are connected through redundant 40GE (or 4x10GE) Ethernet interfaces to an IP network to form a distributed IP routing and processing matrix that provides frame-accurate, clean switching just like a legacy baseband matrix.

SMART
Lawo's SMART range includes the smartDASH System Monitoring and Realtime Telemetry, vendor-agnostic enterprise software for network and media visibility across an all-IP, all-SDI or hybrid WAN/LAN broadcast infrastructure, and the smartSCOPE Deep Packet Inspection & Network Analyzer, a media-agnostic, high-density 24/7 analysis platform for IP flows in live production and delivery.

KICK
KICK is the ball tracking technology for close-ball audio pickup for sports such as soccer, rugby and American football. The system provides transparent sound and excellent 'kick-to-noise' ratio, significantly reducing crowd noise. It also ensures a consistent audio level without noticeable fades for seamless inclusion in a broadcast mix, delivering a mix that is 100% repeatable from match to match and remains highly accurate even after 90 minutes of play. Responsible for producing all Bundesliga football matches, DFL (German Football League Association) subsidiary Sportcast has been using KICK in sports production since the 2017/2018 season for live tracking of the players to optimally control the microphones that record the action on the playing field and mix the sound – with a television audience enjoying a completely new and “close-to-the-match” sound.

A__UHD Core
A__UHD Core is a network-based, software-defined audio DSP engine; its ultra-high processing density with >1,000 mc² fully featured DSP Channels can either be utilized by a single mc² console for coping with even the most challenging productions or be shared amongst up to four consoles. Eight independent 10/1GbE network interfaces with SFPs enable the use of redundant networks via ST2022-7 seamless protection switching (SPS). A__UHD Core's total network I/O capacity equals 40,000 48kHz/24bit audio channels. For management the unit provides two redundant RJ45 1GbE management ports.

mc²56
The new mc²56 is optimized for today’s IP-video production environment – providing Lawo’s revolutionary LiveView thumbnail previews of video streams directly in the fader strip – and is designed from the ground up for networking in complex production infrastructures, with full native support for SMPTE 2110, AES67 / RAVENNA, DANTE and MADI audio streams. Its renowned, best-in-class networking performance rises to even greater heights thanks to unique new capabilities such as IP-Share gain compensation and DSCA Dynamic Surface to Core Allocation.

Power Core
The Power Core is a networked 19"/1RU Audio Processing Unit with unprecedented processing capacity providing 96 fully equipped DSP channels, 80 summing busses and a 1,920x1,920 routing matrix. The eight rear side slots accept any variety of IO cards for Mic, Line, AES, MADI and headphone interfaces in addition the unit’s IP and MADI connectivity. Besides standard audio processing like dynamics and EQs, Power Core also features advanced audio assist systems like one-touch AutoGain and 32 instances of AutoMix for automatically maintaining the balance of open mics.
