Lawo has introduced the second-generation mc²36 audio production console, which comes with a new dual-fader operating bay that allows 48 faders in the same space as a 32-fader board.
The new mc²36 is based on Lawo’s A_UHD technology and includes the company’s new IP Easy functionality that makes IP setup as simple as analogue. IP Easy, based on Lawo’s recently announced HOME management platform for IP-based media infrastructures, makes connecting IP audio and I/O devices as easy as if they were baseband – the console automatically detects new devices and makes them available at the touch of a button.
HOME is natively built on a cloud-ready microservices architecture, enabling users to connect, manage and secure networked production setups from the ground up. Furthermore, it provides centralised access and control for all Lawo gear within a setup. It also helps broadcast professionals address some of the most demanding requirements of modern IP infrastructures, including automated discovery and registration of devices, connection management, flow control, software & firmware management, scalability and security.
HOME is based on open standards such as ST2110, NMOS, IEEE802.1x and RADIUS, and follows LUX, Lawo’s unified experience design principles, which provide a consistent workflow across all Lawo IP products.
