Lawo has released a new version of its Rǝlay virtual radio software suite optimised to run in Virtual Machines.

Lawo Rǝlay 4.2 virtual radio software‘Radio engineers are ready for virtualisation,’ says Senior Product Manager for Radio, Johan Boqvist. ‘Phone caller management, software codecs, streaming apps and, importantly, playout systems are all available in software now. Rǝlay represents the last piece of the puzzle – virtual mixing and routing software that can tie together that other software in one neat package. The result is the ability to originate, mix, route and distribute broadcast audio within a Virtual Machine environment. Rǝlay 4.2 is a great tool for broadcasters looking to build bridges between the cloud and bare-metal computing equipment.’

New Rǝlay v4.2 software runs on standard Windows-based PCs and laptops, either stand-alone or as part of a Ravenna/AES67 network, but can also be deployed within Virtual Machines hosted on cloud-based servers, thanks to numerous behind-the-scenes optimisations and performance upgrades that help Rǝlay programs run smoothly and efficiently.

Rǝlay VRX is a the Windows-native virtual mixer software with touchscreen-control capability. Rǝlay VRX is deployed around the world at radio stations, and used to power news workstations, production rooms, and on-air studios. With the addition of a companion Lawo OnAir 4 audio interface, Rǝlay VRX also addresses remote broadcasts and home studio use.

The Rǝlay virtual radio software family includes four apps: Rǝlay VRX is a touchscreen-enabled Virtual Radio Mixer available in a 4-fader, 12-input version (VRX4), and an 8-fader, 24-input version (VRX8) with advanced features such as Lawo AutoMix, Autogain, and the ability to host VST plug- ins. Rǝlay VPB is a Virtual Patch Bay application that can mix and route traditional audio sources, audio from PC apps, and Ravenna/AES67 streams, as well as machine-logic commands. Rǝlay AoIP Stream Monitor is the world’s first inspection and monitoring tool for AES67 networks, with configurable audio presence monitoring, loudness metering, signal quality analysis and SDP inspection for up to 16 critical AES67 streams. Rǝlay VSC Virtual Sound Card is an 8x8 Ravenna/AES67 sound card replacement for Windows PCs.

All Rǝlay software runs on PC’s with standard Windows versions, and in VMWare Server 6.6 virtual machine environments. Rǝlay users can download the v4.2 software upgrade directly from the Lawo Downloadcenter.
