Lawo unleashes Power Core Max at IBC 2019

Posted on: Wednesday 11th of September 2019

What’s better than power under the hood? Maximum Power! Lawo has announced Power Core Max, a new version of the Power Core AoIP mixing engine that can support multiple physical or virtual mixing surfaces — two, three, or even four mixing interfaces per engine, depending on mixing requirements.

Lawo maintains Power Core Max may be the most powerful DSP mixing engine so far conceived for AoIP networks: ‘With the Power Core Max licence pack, a single engine can be controlled by more than one mixing surface,’ says Lawo Radio Marketing specialist, Clark Novak. ‘Project managers are excited about the ability to support two, three, and sometimes even four mixing consoles. This makes Power Core Max perfect for large multi-studio projects, but broadcasters with medium and smaller facilities can use it as the I/O gateway and mixing engine for an entire radio station! There’s nothing else like it.’

Power Core has 96 available DSP channels, 80 summing busses, an internal 1,920 x 1,920 routing matrix, plus 128 dual-redundant MADI channels and 128 AES67 / Ravenna channels, standard. Operators can use the eight rear-channel I/O expansion slots to accommodate more analog, digital, AES67 and Dante audio signals. There’s also ST2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching for dual-redundant AoIP network connections, and ST2110-30 compliance for seamless interoperability of audio and video equipment in combined radio / TV broadcast plants.

Lawo says that these capabilities, plus the ability to connect to as many as four independent Ruby mixing surfaces, makes Power Core MAX perfect for large multi-studio projects. In addition, broadcasters with medium-size or smaller facilities can use it as an I/O gateway and mixing engine for an entire radio station. Customers can choose from a number of licence packages tailored to a variety of operational needs and price points. The new Max package allows connection of as many as four independent Ruby mixing surfaces to a single Power Core engine suited to today’s multi-studio radio facilities.

Introduced as a DSP mixing engine and modular I/O system for Ruby radio consoles, many broadcasters are now using Power Core as a gateway between legacy audio formats and standards-based IP media networks, thanks to its abundant I/O capacity and a flexible licence set that helps tailor capabilities to required workflows.

 

Key features:

  • Up to 96 fader channels distributed among up to four physical Ruby consoles or VisTool virtual mixers.
  • 1920×1920 internal routing matrix.
  • 80 user-definable summing busses and 96 channels of DSP: compression, limiting.

  • Eight expansion slots for even more mic, analogue, AES3, AES67 and Dante I/O.
  • Dual-redundant front-panel SFP ports for AoIP. Now, broadcasters have their choice of optical or copper network connections, sans the cost of external  edia converters.
  • ST2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching for dual-redundant AoIP network connections.
  • ST2110-30 compliance for seamless interoperability of audio and video equipment in combined radio/TV broadcast.
  • 1U-high chassis.
