Lawo To Show AES67/ST2110 Audio Gateway

At the 2019 NAB Show, Lawo will demonstrate its Power Core DSP mixing engine and modular I/O system as a gateway between legacy audio formats and standards-based IP media networks. PowerCore includes the ability to connect and convert between AES3, AES67, MADI, Dante and ST2110-30 signals.

The 1RU chassis’ support of the ST2110-30 standard ensures seamless interoperability of audio and video equipment in combined radio/TV broadcast plants.

At NAB, Lawo will show a variety of new PowerCore features, including: A Dante card with dual-redundant ports and sample rate conversion, allowing easy integration of pro-audio equipment into broadcast environments; Dual-redundant front-panel SFP ports for AoIP. Now, broadcasters have their choice of optical or copper network connections, sans the cost of external media converters and ST2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching, which provides dual-redundant AoIP network connections. In addition, dual active links guard against audio loss should one link be interrupted.

The PowerCore’s front panel features 128 dual-redundant AES67 streams and 128 dual-redundant MADI channels. There are also 8 rear-panel expansion slots, 96 DSP channels and 2,000 routing cross points.

Users can add more capacity with eight rear-panel card slots, which allow the addition of analog, AES3, MADI and Dante interfaces. The PowerCore also includes a Studio I/O card that provides mic inputs and headphone and monitor outputs.
