Version 4.2 software brings loudness metering to Lawo crystal and sapphire radio consoles.

Lawo sapphireThe consoles now display loudness metering in their main meters for mono, stereo, 5.1 and 5.1+2 audio. In addition, the sapphire can display loudness metering for all input channels. In this case, the loudness metering works in parallel with the channels’ regular PPMs using metering elements in Lawo’s VisTool touchscreen software. Users can select Momentary, Short Term or Integrated mode for measurement.

In addition, the software update includes a graphical fader element, which has been implemented in VisTool to enable fader value control directly by using the GUI.

With v4.2, Lawo has also enabled the sapphire and crystal consoles to act as Ember+ providers and consumers. As a provider, a console feeds channel parameters via the Ember+ protocol to third-party control systems to enable remote control. A sapphire or crystal as a consumer enables the console to remote control other systems via Ember+. Ember+ is an openly available control protocol to be used on a wide range of hardware platforms, from basic micro controllers to more powerful PCs.

The software can now be activated also by hardware dongles, allowing site-wide server-based licensing, the transfer of licenses from one PC to another and to license virtual machines.
