Matrox Monarch EDGE
Lawo's V__remote 4 is designed to provide a one-box solution for all the requirements of video and audio signal transport and processing in WAN-based remote productions. It includes everything from Video-over-IP coding to various monitoring and processing tools. All designed for one purpose: to provide a tool that increases the flexibility of any broadcast application, while saving valuable rack-space, set-up time and production costs. With its virtual cabling capability, V__remote 4 leverages IP infrastructure advantages and cost savings to provide an unparalleled degree of flexibility and scalability.
In remote live production, IP is becoming a fundamental requirement, and getting reliable, low latency and high-quality video from venues back to studios at reasonable cost is an absolute necessity. The Lawo V__remote 4 achieves this by combining a bi-directional, four-channel Video-over-IP interface, four local SDI inputs and outputs, and all the processing tools usually needed when contributing video and audio via WAN or LAN to a broadcast production, into a compact 1RU devices.
V__remote 4 provides four 3G / HD/ SD SDI inputs and four 3G / HD / SD SDI outputs for interfacing to external video equipment, and converts these signals into IP streams (and vice-versa). These streams can be transported via standard Layer 3 IP LANs or WANs. V__remote 4 provides parallel encoding in multiple streaming formats, making the same signal available to different applications – e.g. RAW for local production, JPEG2000 for remote sites, MJPEG and H.264 for monitoring applications, and H.264 for internet distribution. The IP-based approach allows easy signal routing via Lawo’s VSM control and monitoring system or other external master control systems. No rewiring is needed as long as all devices are connected to the network. Since the device is based on real network technology with multicast capability, it allows easy transmission of signals to multiple outputs within the network.
The V__remote4’s coding engines are designed to meet the highest demands for video quality and signal transport reliability. The extremely robust J2K codec (with a special protection algorithm for signal transport even on unreliable WAN connections) and ST2022-7 port redundancy ensure signal availability and quality. Lawo’s EPS technology for enhanced protection switching goes even further, enabling system designs with true hardware and network redundancy. Format and quality of the IP video streams can be configured individually to provide the optimum balance of picture quality, latency and bandwidth. Its 6 Ethernet ports are connected to an internal switch allowing “tunneling” of IP traffic such as camera control, RAVENNA streams or even office and Internet IP, through the 10GBit interface.

Event Streaming Team
This includes live broadcast of cultural and sporting events, fairs, meetings, conferences, corporate events and product presentations.
It is an all-in-one virtual radio studio including Playout (playlist & jingles players), a Mixing Console with DSP & automixer, a VoIP SIP phone, and an AoIP transmission codec.
Lumo runs on a simple laptop. It is web-native and touch-friendly, you can control your studio with a fingertip from any device (including iPad and Android tablets).
Lumo makes remote operations much easier by reducing to a minimum the amount of gear to deploy and offering intuitive yet powerful user interfaces for technical and non-technical operators.
Licenses can be purchased for temporary use as for yearly contracts, making sure you don't pay for resources that you don't use.
Because Artisto is modular, it can be precisely tailored to the specific requirements of any audio application. Artisto can be flexibly configured with an extensive library of processing blocks such as routing, EQs, dynamics, web streaming, AoIP transmission, VoIP phone, recorder, player, loudness levelling and so on. These can be virtually wired together to build a processing pipeline for the desired workflow.
Running on off-the-shelf IT equipment or in the cloud, it eliminates the frustrations inherent in complex hardware infrastructures, solves interoperability issues and dispenses with the need for outdated, insecure control protocols. Artisto responds to any transport requirements from physical or virtual soundcards (AES67, Dante, MADI,…) to low-latency audio-video streams for the cloud (including SIP).
Artisto is fully configurable and controllable via a simple, open web API. Operations can be manual or automated, centralised or distributed, local or remote.
Artisto’s front-end is based on on the most common web technologies, and On-Hertz provides a library with commonly-used components, guaranteeing that any web developer can easily build custom interfaces that fit end-users’ needs.
