Lawo Introduces HOME mc² DSP app

At a special online event, Lawo introduced the HOME mc² DSP app, the microservice-based equivalent of Lawo's unrivaled A__UHD Core.

A new member of the HOME Apps family, the ultra-low-latency HOME mc² DSP app is a server-based, agile audio engine. With an instantly familiar feature set, it combines the superior flexibility of the HOME Apps platform in terms of connectivity and scalability with Lawo's legendary audio processing quality.

The HOME mc² DSP app can be used together with mc² mixing consoles or to instantiate a (virtual) mixing system at the press of a button wherever audio processing is required at short notice.

HOME mc² DSP is the audio processing companion of choice for converging video/audio production environments. With all features known from the A__UHD Core FPGA processing platform in a CPU-based package, it allows operators to spin up mc²-grade DSP processing with hitherto unthinkable granularity.

As a member of the HOME Apps platform, the HOME mc² DSP app benefits from the agility afforded by the abstraction of processing functionality from the hardware: it leverages Lawo's Flex licensing and subscription model, allowing users to reallocate subscription credits to any available HOME App, whether audio or video, for tight budget control. It is also easy to 'move' from one location—the production hub, say—to another, such as an OB truck or a remote location.

HOME mc² DSP's primary purpose is to provide audio processing in situations where no A__UHD Core is available or where remaining within the HOME Apps realm is more practical. With this app, spinning up a processing core with the required number of DSP channels for a variety of use cases becomes a breeze.

Despite its CPU-based technology, the HOME mc² DSP app performs at the same ultra-low latency as its hardware companion. All capabilities and characteristics are so similar that operators are unable tell whether their console surface or headless mixer controls a hardware-based A__UHD Core or the mc² DSP app. Switching between the two—and back—is possible at the push of a button in the HOME UI.

The HOME mc² DSP app automatically scales with future CPU developments and can provide several thousand DSP channels where needed. With support for mono, stereo, 5.1, and NGA Immersive Mixing formats; a flexible number of AUX, GRP, and SUM busses; and much more, HOME mc² DSP is the app-based alter-ego of the A__UHD Core. Any HOME App can be stopped at any time, freeing up server capacity, Flex Subscription credits, and reducing power consumption in the process.
