Lawo announces a new software license package for its versatile Power Core AoIP mixing engine and I/O node: Power Core MAX. “MAX”, short for Multiple Access, makes it possible for a single Power Core device to be the mixing engine for multiple on-air mixing consoles.
“Many of Lawo’s customers are large public broadcasters whose workflows dictate big mixing surfaces, so Power Core was designed with a huge amount of DSP and modular I/O in just 1RU — maybe even too much for an average console,” says Lawo Radio Marketing Specialist Clark Novak. “Power Core MAX lets you unlock all those resources to power two, three or even four small mixing surfaces. That’s a capability that anyone who wants to maximise their equipment budget will immediately appreciate.”

InstaShow is the only wireless system that can operate independently of the network, truly minimizing the corporate network attack profile, in addition to ensuring a 100% 128-bit AES-encrypted content stream.
