Lawo unveiled their two bright new stars in the Lawo mixing universe: the Phase II of its A__UHD Core audio engine, and the next generation of Lawo’s compact, feature-filled all-in-one mixer: the mc²36 audio production console.
Both products are designed to deliver maximum output using minimal space, weight, and power requirements. The native-IP A__UHD Core just became Lawo’s new console core for mc² consoles and takes a decisive lead in processing power per cubic centimeter by delivering 1,024 channels of mc²-quality audio processing in just 1RU, also cutting power consumption — a performance that previously required 5x the power and 10x the rack space. The new mc²36 mixer raises the audio production bar by more than doubling the DSP channel count of the original, as well as introducing an ultra-compact 16-fader version that delivers big performance in the smallest mc² footprint.
And a major new feature, IP Easy, makes managing IP network devices simpler and more intuitive.
Lawo’s new A__UHD Core is a native IP device, designed from the start to work within IP networks and manage networked devices. As such, it is based fully on open standards such as ST2110-30/-31, AES67, RAVENNA, Ember+ and NMOS. And it’s designed for both 48 kHz and 96 kHz operation. “From now on, A__UHD Core will be the power behind all mc² consoles.”, said Christian Struck, Lawo’s Senior Product Manager, Audio Production.
“When we introduced the mc²36 in 2014, its small form-factor and its price-point quickly made it a favorite with customers we’d never been able to address before – venues like houses of worship, performing arts centers or smaller OB trucks – anywhere a small, powerful live mixer was required,” says Lucas Zwicker, Lawo’s Senior Technical Product Manager, Audio Production.
