Lawo has launched a Dante interface card for its flagship radio routing, mixing and I/O platform, Power Core.

Lawo Power Core Dante interfaceEach two-port card supports up to 128 Dante streams in support of Power Core’s high signal density, compact 1U-high form factor and DSP power. Power Core also has dual, redundant NICs with  Seamless Protection Switching to ensure instant, inaudible recovery from network faults.

‘For broadcasters who want to connect Dante networks to their Ravenna AES67 studio networks, this is the way to do it,’ says Lawo Radio Marketing Specialist, Clark Novak. ‘Slide a Dante card into your Power Core, plug in a network cable, and the devices in your Dante network become available to your Ravenna network as audio resources. It couldn’t be easier.

‘Power Core is a mixing/processing engine designed for our Ruby radio console, but clients quickly realised that they could use it by itself as a multi-format audio node,’ he continues. ‘With all slots filled, Power Core can handle several hundred AES3, HD Madi, analogue and AES67 audio channels. And now it connects with Dante networks too. With all these capabilities, Power Core just might be the ‘universal translator’ for broadcast audio.’

Power Core’s multiple front-panel Madi and AES67 interfaces give access to as many as 384 channels of stereo audio, standard. Eight plug-in slots accommodate even more I/O via mic, line, AES3, HD MADI and Dante expansion cards. When paired with a Lawo Ruby mixing console, Power Core can provide as many as 96 DSP channels for precision audio shaping, with up to 80 summing buses, multiple AutoMix groups, and comprehensive compression/expansion/de-essing tools.
