Power to the Max from Lawo at IBC

Power Core Max can handle hundreds of analogue, digital and AES67 audio signals

Lawo has released Power Core Max, an AES67 mixing engine that supports up to four independent Lawo mixing surfaces. It has 96 available DSP channels and, according to the manufacturer, the capacity to handle hundreds of analogue, digital and AES67 audio signals. Users can choose from a number of licence packages tailored to a variety of operational needs and price points. Features include support of up to 96 fader channels distributed among up to four physical Ruby consoles or VisTool virtual mixers; a 1920*1920 internal routing matrix; 80 user-definable summing busses; 128 dual-redundant MADI channels and 128 AES67/Ravenna channels; eight expansion slots; and dual-redundant front-panel SFP ports for AoIP. Broadcasters have a choice of optical or copper network connections, without the cost of external media converters. Power Core Max also provides ST2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching for dual-redundant AoIP network connections and ST2110-30 compliance for interoperability of audio and video equipment in combined radio/TV broadcast plants.

Lawo has also created the ‘world’s first AES67 stream monitor’, a new piece of software that runs on Windows and allows broadcasters using the AES67 AoIP standard to monitor thestate of their programme streams. The Lawo AES67 Stream Monitor provides information for up to 16 user-definable audio streams, each of which can contain multiple audio channels. The main display shows audio levels and alarm indications for all monitored streams. By selecting an individual stream display, users can dig further to find more detailed stream information.

AES67 Stream Monitor gives broadcasters the ability to audition AES67 streams on-demand using the PC sound card and to monitor two Ethernet NICs simultaneously for true ST2022-7 compatibility. Its Stream Health Monitor function tracks jitter, dropped packets and data errors, while LUFS metering provides detailed tracking of loudness units over time. The system also has alarms for silence-sensing, under-level or over-level alerts, with user-definable thresholds, and offers SDP interrogation of all monitored streams, with information able to be copied to the clipboard for documenting or for use with other applications. The Per-stream Status Window gives a view of audio level content and errors over time, as well as a file-based error report. Running on standard Windows 10 PCs, AES67 Stream Monitor is also VMWare compatible for deployment on virtual machines.
